Re: 93 SL2 Master cylinder port sizes.

Most places charge $35 to $121+ for that tap, and you would be better just replacing the master cylinder, however;
Ebay has one for about $13, but it comes from England and shipping time is long.

Re: Dim driver side headlight fuses checked but strange behavior

I would first take off the parking/emergency hand brake; that needs to be OFF for the DRL circuitry to work, and come on.
The DRLs run through their under the hood relay, then current flows in...

Re: Dim driver side headlight fuses checked but strange behavior

Sounds like a poor ground issue.

Just curious too, have you released the parking brake and observed this also? And does the dash RED brake light go off when the parking brake is released?

Re: Rebuilding 96 dohc

Looks like HomeDepot has gone the way of California.
No MEK, but been replaced with Klean-Strip (not as volatile).

But, Walmart of all places sells it by the gallon.($39).

Re: AC voltage at battery

In all my RF/EMI training and microwave/UHF/VHF/commercial, private and military radio antenna experience I doubt it.

Re: Radiator difference

$80 is not a bad price for a Spectra Premium from Rockauto for your '01 L.
Is this what you bought?

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

Bett, correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that you get the best starting after you put a battery charger on it. After 8 pages of chasing the problem(s), I don't recall did anyone already check...

Did you use a new Stant thermostat?
Is the top radiator hose (drivers side) hot going into the radiator?

Re: Transmission sensor connector identification

Don't use any crimp type connection for this or on the ECTS wiring.
It will degrade and eventually (especially on the ECTS) lose the full 5vdc (IIRC) supplying that sensor. Solder is the only way to...

Re: How much gas and oil in A/C systems?

For the best answer, I would re-post your question in the ION forum, not here in the S series forum. Not all of us here own S's and Ions.
:) And you are posting on an 11 year old thread too!

Re: Steel/zinc bolts and nuts OK for exhaust?

Not all stainless steel is rust proof or even rust resistant.
It depends on the specific grade.
A whole lot of stainless is just that, that they just stain-LESS.

Re: Is this the correct valve cover hose?

Yes, but you can save a few dollars and pick it up at advance auto, and use 20-25% off by ordering on line and picking it up at the store.
If the snow storm is not too bad, Loveland, CO has 2 of...

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

Glad your car is working for now, however; what many folks don't know is that all gasoline is the same, all brands have the same additives as their competitors.

Re: Saturn Sl1 struggling to move

Only use Dexron III compatible trans fluid, NEVER any other Dexron #.
Read the container carefully, many times it will say EXCLUDES SATURN S series, so don't use it ever.
Also, replace the spin on...

If so, you...
