Re: Saturn Performance Advice

Take Fetch's advice on the suspension upgrades, and get some P195/60 R15 H-Rated tires and 15" SC2 wheels for it.

Re: Automatic Trans Issue

If you still have even the slightest delay into reverse, that is the symptom of a worn Boost Pressure Valve bore, which is what destroys the line pressure solenoid.

Re: Saturn Help in Chicago?

Valve body replacement is usually a "one-time" thing on these cars, because the Sonnax kits permanently solve the design flaws of the original Saturn design.

The reason I am using up valve bodies...

Re: Saturn Help in Chicago?

You may need to contact Special Forces to get your VB, or contact Central Valve Body.

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

I think you will be quite satisfied with the first gen valve cover, over the cheap plastic ones. First Gen Saturn S-Series had most of the best of Saturn(especially 1995 S-Series).

Re: Model in question.

No. 1991-1996 Saturn Coupes ONLY came with pop-up headlamps on the SC(1991-1992 only), and the SC2(1993-1996).

The SC1 trim level was NOT available in 1991-1992 model years, and when GM added it...

Re: Sohc to Dohc swap done with issues

P0171 exhaust lean, maybe check/replace the O2 sensor. It may be on its way out, and just hasn't set an O2 sensor code yet.

Re: Manual to power steering swap? JY SC2 suspension? Straightforward?

Only the 1991-1992 S-Series are programmed to code the PCM, when the variable assist plug is not detected.

Buy pretty much any other brand of GM lines, from 1991-2002, and you will see gas gauges that are way worse than the S-Series.

Re: Car sat for 6 months....precautions before start?

Adding SeaFoam or any additives to the fuel os a recipe for disaster on the valves, because the fuel burns too hot.
