Re: Mpg??????

My '98 SW2 manual gets 32-35 local driving, 37-39 highway. I've had a high of 45 one tankful at high altitude in Co., and that was going up and down high passes.

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

Not at my local AZ. Where did you get 2 gallons for $20?

Re: Radiator fan squealing

I'll be 86. Hopefully I can still turn wrenches.
Another question. I let it get to 220 and the fan turned on. It quickly dropped to 210 and I shut the engine off. Should the fan still have been...

Re: Radiator fan squealing

You mean I'll have to replace it again in 20 years? It never ends.

Re: Radiator fan squealing

It was no simple thing to lube the bearings, and I think it was shot anyway. I just replaced it. Now it's blowing good like a Satty should.
I've oiled noisy electric fans in my computer and even a...

Re: Radiator fan squealing

How would you go about oiling it? Can the bearing be accessed and what kind of oil or grease?

Radiator fan squealing

Yesterday my radiator fan started to squeal when it first turned on (no a/c). It quiets down, but then squealed again today when started by turning on the a/c.
Can the fan motor be oiled, or just...

Re: Aftermarket Headlight Options

If you're looking for more light, search for the quad headlight mod. It allows the low beams to stay on when the high beams are on. Helps a lot, but no help when just on low.

Re: Rear wheels slide out on slippery surfaces

WAY underinflated. Those tires can take 44 psi, adjusted downward for lighter cars, but not that far down. With the pressure that low, the car is riding on the edges of the tires and almost no...

Re: best snow tires for SL?

I get good results with Blizzaks. I haven't tried them in deeper snow, but on hard pack and ice, they grip well.

Re: Flywheel

When I was into BMW motorcycles, the big thing was to lighten the heavy flywheel. It would allow the revs build faster, which was fine for racing and fast sport riding. The problem was, it also made...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

No matter how many times you say this, you're still dead wrong. You don't adjust pressure up or down because you're not happy or it doesn't feel right or it doesn't look right. If the same tire with...

Alternative center caps

Has anyone found a substitute for the stock center caps for the alloy rims? Any other model or something homemade?
It needs to fit without being a project and cheap.

Re: Engine Oil Drain Plug and Gasket

Mine always leaked and the drain plug almost fell out, no matter how well torqued it was.
Now I put a dab of RTV gasket sealer at the base of the threads and the collar. Not up the threads, you...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

Like I have repeatedly said, whatever works for you and your car. If you're getting even wear, and IF you measured correctly, that's what matters.
My point of view is backed by MY experience with...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

First, there's no such thing as "S-series tires" nor "tires for the S-series". Show me a single tire that has, or ever had, "Saturn S-series" on it. The pressure recommendations are for the TIRES +...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

If that's for real, then your tires are the exception and not a routine example.
Or:
Your odometer is 300% off...
Your running tires made of hardened steel...
You drive only on roads as smooth...

Re: 31 psi FRONT, 28 psi REAR

The tires available today are not the same type as the OEM ones. Therefore the door sticker does not apply.

125k on a set of tires? They belong in a museum. Talk about total BS.
