Re: mmo soak or not?

Is this even a question? The title and the post don't add up.

I'd do a soak, it can't hurt. It stopped my oil burning like magic. Besides, it's fun to smoke out your neighbors :yes:

Re: SC- Girls car?

I gotta say, based on what I've seen, I disagree with most of the people here... I don't really see the S-series as a "chick" car. I think they're pretty neutral. Out of all the people I've known who...

Nah, tint first... then wheels... or maybe the audio system (although the factory one is tolerable for now) :)

Out with the old, in with the new...

Yesterday I traded in my 1995 SL1 and got a 2008 Jetta. It took some work, but I ended up paying $18,500 ($400 under invoice) for the car and getting $1,400 for the Saturn.

I had the SL1 for six...

Re: Air horns on an SC2

I rented a Penskee cab-over truck one time, and I tried the horn thinking it was going to be something crazy loud... the thing came out more like a toy whistle. It was hilarious.

The horn on my...

Re: Location of intake resonator?

Unfortunately, yes, it does, but the real point of removing it is to improve throttle response. I still don't know exactly why it works, but I assume it's because of the additional inlet improving...

Re: Which color?

You really need 4k-6k for decent light. It doesn't sound like you're asking about true HID lamps, or maybe you're just looking at some cheap ones. The 10k-12k range is practically blue, which is...

Re: Antifreeze disappearing

Yum, antifreeze.

dddaaa, I recently had the same problem (coolant was disappearing but I couldn't figure out how). It turned out to be the bottom seal of the water pump. The coolant just sort of...

Re: Are my wheel cylinders bad?

Brake fluid should never be anywhere under any circumstances... so yes, they are definitely leaking. If those are original, they far outlasted mine. If you replace them yourself, don't forget to...

Re: actual v8 sc2

A compact economy car should have a V8 and be RWD? lol

Sounds like you should have gotten a Corvette or something... trust me, a Corvette is a lot better than a Saturn with a ginormous engine...

Re: SL1 - auto trans - upshifts not smooth

You can get electronics/corrosion cleaners like DeoxIT from electronics stores or auto parts stores, and those will probably work the best, but you can also try baking soda and water (although that...

Re: Random Maintenance Questions (Wires / Coolant / Suspension)

Wow, are they that good? Looks like they're pretty cheap... I've looked at some MacPhersons, and they were more than twice as much. I was thinking that new struts probably weren't worth it since I...

Re: Way to change from stock rear spks to 6x9s?

You can mount them from underneath with some appropriate padding (rubber washers and the like), but it will affect the sound because the flange around the deck hole will block some of the speaker. I...

Re: Reached the 150K mile milestone!

My O2 sensor went after about 100k miles, and I was getting 10-15MPG (and still passed an emissions test, lol). That's a pretty likely cause, but just about anything can drop fuel milage. Take care...

Re: which coolant color/dexcool for which years?

Is it okay to use Dex-Cool in a 95 SL1? I've always used the green, but I just had the water pump changed and the dealer filled it with Dex-Cool... without flushing the green out, of course. I need...

Re: SL1 - auto trans - upshifts not smooth

You can just get some packets of dielectric connector grease. They're like $0.50 or something. I'm sure other things would work, but I would stick with something that's actually made for electrical...

Re: actual v8 sc2

Another thing I didn't think about until just now... can you imagine how much torque an engine like that would put on a frame at a high RPM? I'm sure there'd be some serious twisting going on....

Yes, lol, but the car has to accelerate before the additional weight is transferred to the rear wheels. And with a giant engine hanging off the front of a plastic compact coupe with no wing, I can't...

Unless you have a lot of money and time to spend, and you think it's funny to see huge engines sticking out of tiny cars, those kinds of mods are pretty ridiculous... you may as well strap a V8 to a...

Re: SL1 - auto trans - upshifts not smooth

When you put the new valve body on, did you grease the electrical connections? If not, they're probably getting corroded.

Re: Random Maintenance Questions (Wires / Coolant / Suspension)

Cool, I'll try that, thanks. Does anyone know anything about the coolant? I guess I might have to start a separate thread for that. I've searched a bit but I haven't come up with anything.

Re: Random Maintenance Questions (Wires / Coolant / Suspension)

Is resistance really all that matters with the wires? If so, do you know what's normal?

My car does actually bounce a little when it's stopped, probably more than it should... but it's such a...
