Re: 99 HCE alloy wheel swap question

I believe the HCE's use the "standard" pattern but a unique paint job, similar to the Red (http://www.saturnfans.com/photos/data/500/medium/redhot.jpg)/White...

Re: Engine Swap 1995 Saturn SL2

'91-'92 crankshafts can't be used in '93+, the timing gear is funky. '91-'93ish also have a funky bolt pattern to the valve cover that isn't found on '93ish-'98.

'95 for the easiest swap into '95...

Re: 1995 Saturn SC2 Instrument Cluster Swap

Seems smarter to just pull the harness from another '95 SC2.

The big file has 4 pages to the other 2 files 2 pages, might be duplicates.

Re: 99 HCE alloy wheel swap question

All Alloy S-Series wheels are (exception possibly being the 'custom' AR wheels on the Bumblebee's):


15" x 6"
4 x 100 mm bolt pattern
50 mm offset
57.1 mm hub bore

Re: Hey everyone theres a Rrock Auto close out sale !

Wholesaler closeout = "We forgot about this on the shelf for 20 years"
Likely works okay for most stuff, but windshield wipers were junk out of the box.

Re: Transmission Coolant Temp Sensor Replacement

Same sensor for the engine coolant temp, intake air temp and auto-transmission temp. I think only in the intake it 100% threads in, the others thread in enough to not leak (NPT thread is tapered).

Re: 2000 Saturn SL2

I don't watch FiremanCV's videos anymore so I don't know how much he went into how to use the MM; here's a good video on starting out with one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF3OyQ3HwfU

Re: '02 SL Rear Seat Removal

Re: What side is the 'S' terminal on..Help!

You did say it's 2WD when they asked if it's 4x4/AWD right? lol

It doesn't matter, though whichever side puts it farther from the block is easier to get to once it's bolted to the motor.

Re: The latest acquisition

Re: Alternator compatability

'91-'97.5 and '97.5-'02. Napa used to have the VIN change over, I believe it correlates to 12/97 build date ending the good alternator.

The early one is the better one, larger case, better...

Re: How to "fix" muffler strap

You might have to triangulate it to get it to hold the muffler solid, rather than just hanging down. You don't want it too solid anyway, even the stock hanger has 3-4in of slide room.

Re: 1997 SW2 P0336 misfire with details

Why would you replace the ICM? You don't have a misfire code. You have a broken wire/EMI interference code.

Re: SES light went on, went off 3 days later by itself

If the VCG leaks into the spark plug well long enough (soaking the plug boot) it can degrade the wire boot enough that the spark jumps from the wire to the head rather than utilizing the spark plug.

Re: 02 SC2 Intermittent reverse lights

Well, that's an easy enough fix. Just tear down the tower, put a couple weld beads on the shifter arm and put it back together. Simple, just like those 30yr old 1000pc puzzles from an estate sale...

Re: 1997 SW2 P0336 misfire with details

The best way is directly at the alternator cable post to the battery, but the alternator is a bit annoying to get to so you likely can do the same test directly on the battery. Measure the AC voltage...

Re: 1997 SW2 P0336 misfire with details

It could be the ground cables. There's 1 on each top bellhousing bolt, 1 next to the battery and the PCM/O2 sensor grounds are kinda hidden under intake runner #3.

If you have a DMM, this would be...

Re: 1997 SW2 P0336 misfire with details

According to the FSM...none of the performed/listed tests posted in this thread have anything to do with P0336 "Noisy CKP circuit".

Inspect the wiring for breaks and try another alternator.

Re: Manual Trans Swap

Traction control is like ABS...the only time it works properly is when it's turned off, and neither one have anything to do with the transmission.

Re: Turbo Saturn build

Balance the lighter crankshaft?...that just sounds like bolting in the heavier crankshaft except harder and more expensive to end up with a crankshaft that weighs the same.

Not sure how it's broken, but if the nut doesn't have anything to thread onto it'll have to be welded on to stay. Legit welded, not fake welded with consumer grade epoxy (JB weld or the like found in...

Re: TPS brand?

ACDelco is just another part reboxer now. They may still be officially a part of GM, but they're still putting generic non-dealer parts under their label.

Re: SL1 - Have to stop on "Run" in order to start car

Usually that means the check valve in the fuel pump has failed, pausing in "run" lets it rebuild fuel pressure. If it were anything other than a GM you'd have a nifty access panel in the back to get...

Re: Cabin lights and headlights flickering/diming over 2k rpm

Sounds like either the alternator is starting to seize up causing the belt to slip, or the belt should have been replaced a year or two ago and is now slipping.

Either way, you need a new belt....
