Re: Tranny Slipping into 2nd and 4th

The cheap way to fix it is to loosen the bolts (just crack the lower loose, fully loosen the top) and hammer the top of the knuckle in. Then go test (tighten the bolts first), if it feels good...

Re: Cyl 3 misfire at idle... couple dumb questions

Hope this doesn't confuse the OP but I did run a slightly modified '96 SC2 with the wires flipped around with 0 issue's. My dad had a bunch of '94 Cavi Z24 parts, I figured the coils might be more...

Re: sc2 aftermarket lights mod help

The activation circuit (pin 85 & 86) only needs low amps (lowest rated fuse you can find) while the load circuit (pin 30 & 87/87a) needs higher amps to run whatever you wish it to (your relay says...

Re: Getting back in a Saturn - 95 SL2 M/T

Sometimes the nut gets a tad loose and lets the wiper arm slide around, if the wiper's look like they move too far to the driver side then I'd let them park remove the nut and reset their location to...

Re: Adding LED lights?

18-14 awg wire would be fine for nearly any average cost automotive light. I'd go with 16g wire for off-road style lights as long as it's a quality wire that measures the gauge of the copper wire and...

Re: Engine swap

If you never go above about 75% throttle it'll be fine, otherwise the SOHC PCM's idea of full throttle fueling will go lean on the DOHC and burn up valves.
Depending on year swapping the PCM is a...

Re: Do rear brakes engage in park on abs vehicle?

I believe the startup test you're describing is only a bulb check, not an actual ABS check. The actual ABS check comes at 5mph.

You can either blindly test things such as the wheel speed sensor...

Re: 98 to 99 swap

If they both are automatic and the same DOHC or SOHC transmission than it should be a direct no-issue swap. Going from MP7 to MP6 or MP6 to MP7 won't work at all; going from auto->manual requires a...

Re: getting a duplicate key made for 2001 Saturn SC2

Had a VIN cut key at my local Chevy dealer for $5, to a '96 SC2. Not sure if it was so cheap because my dad was also replacing his keys (same era GM but required a different key for the ignition,...

Re: Help buying another SL (by monday) :P

ABS was an option on every model, except possibly SL, '91-'02. Rear disc was an option '91-'97, probably standard w/ABS on SC/SC2/SL2 for those years. SOHC's & SW2's got rear drums and starting in...

Re: Headlight seap and front fender question.

If you use 3rd gen SC headlights, you kinda rather need to use a 3rd gen SC hood too. They have that silly/stupid raised eyebrow thing going on, pretty sure it interferes with the 2nd gen hood at...

Re: SC2 going to swap with junkyard engine

If you had the missing part it's fixable but as pictured it's scrap.

Re: Exploded donut spare wiki

I hacked off the power outlet adapter on my 12v inflaitor to give it battery clamps like jumper cables use. Probably would be smart to add a fuse to the power line, but it works fine as-is.

Re: not sure what button on dash near steering wheel is for

Yep, fog lights. Bulb style 880.

All (well, most anyway) your bulb lookup needs: https://www.sylvania-automotive.com/apps/vlrg-us/Vlrg/#

Probably the cheapest reliable bulb (I've bought a ton...

Re: not sure what button on dash near steering wheel is for

Guessing fog lights, but knowing the year of your SC2 would help narrow things down.

Quick-fix #1: Clean out the hole, coat the stud with JB-Weld (or industrial equivalent/upgrade) and shove it in there. Don't expect to use it for at least 24hrs while the JB Weld fully cures.

You're replacing the control arm anyway so make life easy and lop off the bit that isn't part of the rounded bit inside the frame. Gives you much more working room to see what's going on and get...

Re: Cps

You'd still have to at least remove one bolt from the lower engine dog-bone as the dog-bones are designed to prevent exactly what you want it to do :)
