Re: Stock Thermostat Temp? 180ºF or 195ºF?

The L200 takes a 180 degree thermostat. My last thermostat failed by having part of the rubber lip failing. This let coolant flow all the time but slowly. The gage read low and after a couple days...

Re: AC issue

I just installed a L300 compressor on my L200 last week. The compressor is the same, the L300 uses a 6 groove belt and the L200 uses a 5 groove belt. I used the inside 5 grooves and the belt lined up...

Re: AC issue

Check the compressor clutch coil with a dvom. 3-5 ohms is good, no continuity is bad. You can change just the coil with the compressor on the car. Remove the bumper cover and go in from the side.

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

We changed quite a few 77-78 Jeep Wagoneer flexplates and Chevy pickups and Suburban flexplates in the early 80s and they were all oem installs. Not many since. Lots of other problems but no...

Re: 2001 Lw300 V6 L3.0 Air box cutout for new evaporator

The part number for the evaporator cover service part is 22679783. It appears to be unobtainium. There are some sitting on a shelf somewhere.

Re: 2001 Lw300 V6 L3.0 Air box cutout for new evaporator

I looked in my fsm tonite and there are detailed instructions on how to cut the housing. They also list the part number for the new cover you will need. I wonder if any of those still exist. I have a...

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

A loose torque converter bolt can tick as it backs out. If all three fall out you have lots of neutrals. LOL

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

Flexplate noises usually change when the car is put in gear. If there is no change look elsewhere. You could have a partially broken chain link on your main chain. I have found that they get noisy...

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

A 2001 S10 is not an Ecotec. The L61 Ecotec engine was first used in the Saturn L series starting in 2000. GM put them in Cavaliers, Aleros, Grand Ams and Malibus starting in 2003.

Re: Flywheel Inspection Plate ? 2.2 non-Eco Tech.

All the cracked flexplates that I have replaced crack where the flexplate bolts to the crankshaft. I have never had one break and have loose torque converter bolts. All L200 Saturns are Eco-tec...

Re: L200 rear speakers

The factory premium sound has a single small woofer on the driver’s side of the rear deck. I think the premium sound cars have a stand alone overlay harness. So no to your question, you will need to...

Re: dead engine :(

They use these engines in many GM car lines. So don’t just look for a Saturn mechanic. I repaired my own car but I am a professional mechanic. These engines are easier to repair than the Ford Diesels...

Re: dead engine :(

I spent about $700 on parts to repair the last L200 with a broken chain. I replaced all the valves, main chain kit from cloyes, just the guides and tensioner and chain for the balance shaft, water...

Re: 2002 Saturn L200 switch assembly (driver's side window)

It is possible that the window motor limit switches are acting up. Since the driver’s window works differently than the other three. The window motor senses torque to stop the auto down function....

Re: Should I trade-In or Sell?

I bet your wife will love the Regal. Since the L series is an Opel Vectra and the Regal is an Opel Insigna. In fact the Insigna replaced the Vectra line for GM Europe. She will feel right at home,...

Well you might have to remove the three bolts to drop the compressor or you could take a look! I do this every day!

Re: lw300 v6 a/c clutch replacement

You have good access with the bumper cover and the inner shrouds off the car. I replaced the clutch coil on one of my L200s.
