Missing Ď94 SL found in Lake with deceased driver

This was in the local news, and thought it worth sharing. Poor guy has been missing since 1997. A Google Earth user (or possibly Google Maps Satellite imagery) spotted the car behind a man’s house...

Re: Replaced Driver's Door Interior Panel

Yeah, the plastic arm rest became brittle. It started with a small ripple (that barely impacted the top vinyl coating...), and progressively got worse. This issue really only impacts the 2nd gen...

This is definitely not the most exciting project, but after waiting several years... I finally swapped out the plastic armrest/interior door panel (that was slowly growing a large into a plastic...

Re: New brakes squeal

Trottida beat me to it. Itís very common for aftermarket shims to not fit (or be sized/shaped) precisely like the OEM ones. Iíve personally encountered some that were noticeably wider and not bent...

Sorry to hear about the accident. I hope all parties are okay. I, too, was in search of a replacement hood for my 2nd gen Saturn. Luckily, at the time, Saturns were plentiful at the local U Pull...

Re: Brake lines

If you're running your original master cylinder, you may want to at minimum replace the seals inside of it (or replace the entire thing). MC's that are older, tend to fail when being pedal bled, and...

Re: What's you lubrication configuration?

Both of my Saturns burn entirely too much oil to justify switching to a more expensive synthetic. That being said, I run Valvoline conventional oil 5w30, the extended size 51516 Wix filter, and I...

Re: Sunroof glass height adjustment.

I could be entirely mistaken on this, but I was under the impression that the back/rear was supposed to be recessed slightly, and the front was to be higher... The '98 FSM says the contrary, but...

Re: Question: Rounded line bolt on master cylinder.

Thanks for the feedback on this. I think Iím going to either wait and get a line from a JY donor Saturn, or possibly just brave the super short trip (driving around 5 mph safely the entire 300-ish...

Re: Question: Rounded line bolt on master cylinder.

Iíve got some great knipex pliers/grips, and tried (to no avail) to get the bolt off - after it was rounded by a flare line wrench. I took to drastic measures, and sawed the line just shy of where...

Question: Rounded line bolt on master cylinder.

I replaced my MC today, but even with the correct size flare wrench/line wrench I still managed to round one of the four bolts. The new MC was bench bled and I installed 3 of the 4 lines. ...

Re: ABS + BRAKE light

I've had the sensor cause errors on my master cylinder. Sometimes just gently tapping the side of the MC with a small hammer (DON"T hit it hard) will cause the sensor to turn on/off. Also, this is...

Re: S-Series Mileage Milestones 100k 150k 200k 250k and beyond

Re: Hesitation, Fuel Injector problem?

Re: Windshield wiper fluid hose

Re: 2001 Saturn SL1 brake issues

Re: I think I need a new clutch [not sure]

Just chiming in from personal experience, but both of my Saturns (95 SL base and 96 SL2) make the creaking pedal noise. This isn't anything to worry about, and can be greased/lubricated if the...

Re: 1994 Sl2 Speakers

Re: Nice oil filter wrench

I hear what a few others are saying about the sockets on oil filters. It DOES depend greatly on the brand of oil filter you use on your car. For example, my size "C" fits just as snug as a 10 mm...
