Re: 1998 Saturn SL2 won't start when parked on driveway incline

^ I agree. ^ Gasoline tends to be the same if not exactly the same from brand to brand. The most recent sales pitch is 'top tier' fuel. I don't know if this is more hype except for GM service manuals...

Re: Best mods to get 150 hp for cheap

Re: Buzzing noise in throttle body

Disconnecting battery negative is all that's necessary to remove all power to the car. Hopefully, no damage occurred and at worst, maybe a bent pin that can be straightened. Fingers crossed....:clock:

Re: 2004 Saturn L300 will not fire

Re: 1998 Saturn SL2 won't start when parked on driveway incline
