Re: Brake lights work with headlights off, will not brighten with headlights on

To clarify -

When you turn the headlights on, the tail lights do not come on (in the dimmer setting)

When you turn the headlights off, the brake lights work fine (in the bright "I'm stopping"...

Re: Greetings from central WV!

45 mpg out of an ION? Color me impressed. When I was looking, I decide against any IONs because the MPGs were lower than the S series.

Looking forward to your link - you can always post it but...

Re: cant sleep soooooo

One of the compromises that they have to make is "too much cooling" vs "not enough cooling" vs "speed of cooling"

Ideally - your engine should warm up quickly, then once it hits a good operating...

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

MMO soak Saturday night, oil change on Sunday. Drove out to do some shopping after and left a big smoke trail . . . petered out after 2~3 miles at 55 mph. Plugs in good shape, so put them back in. ...

Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

May have painted the rims with silver paint. I think originals were chrome or polished with glossy back paint for the recessed parts

Re: Weird Oil Problem

You'll get more answers on the S-Series General or S-Series Tech forums. You are posting in the lower-traffic Mods forum, and people rarely mod their S series any more. :)

Re: Mpg??????

O2 is relatively cheap, around $30 on ebay. Probably want to double check before shelling out money, but I think it can affect MPG before it is bad enough to set a code

Re: How to check if engine turns over

Pulley bolt head will vary as mentioned, but mine was 21mm

Never tried it for pushing the car, but I imagine pulling the plugs will make it easier to push.

Definitely easier to turn with plugs...

Re: White House proposes weakening EPA and California emissions

I'd read about Honda making a CNG version of the Civic - CNG tank took up the trunk, I believe. Discontinued in 2015. Range comparable or better than equivalent electric cars of the day.

Re: Need help, can I drive whatever this thing is that broke?

Wow, I checked the link and the Moogs are on closeout for $6 each. Even with shipping, I think it will be less than what I paid for them last time. I found a thread from 2012 where I checked the...

Re: Mufflers and metallurgy

Probably wouldn't hurt to paint both the new muffler and the muffler strap, to prevent any metal on metal contact.

I coated my muffler and strap with 3 coats of hi temp POR15 and several coats of...

Re: Do I need to wire in a new cig outlet or can I just use a splitter?

Yeah, you really don't want to run anything off the lighter port.

It's a good way to stop your car from running :)

This thread covers some of it

Re: looks like im going to keep it for a while

You probably already know, check oil weekly or at every fillup at first, and keep it full.

On my '98, once everything got sorted out (ECTS, thermostat, water pump, radiator), it got boring. Add...

Re: Transmission fluid check help

I agree, change the ATF and filter. It's not your first rodeo with an auto trans, from the sounds of things :)

Some Saturn owners have gotten of the mind, "it is leaking/burning, so adding fluid...

Re: Trunk release not working

I kinda vaguely think I remember it. Didn't it start out with someone driving a long distance, wanted to know if he/she broke down if there was someone near?

Rotella T-6, 5w40 synthetic, less than $10/gallon at AutoZone

Yeah, I know, we have a sticky thread for oil rebates but this deserves its own thread.
