Re: Oil Consumption / Burn (Looking for a Band-Aid)

I came here 13 years ago. It was one of the 1st things I did. Used 2 or 3 applications. Do not remember the details. I even joined the Auto-RX forum. That was when Frank of Auto RX had a lot of...

Re: Oil Consumption / Burn (Looking for a Band-Aid)

I have used Auto-Rx on the previous engine on the Saturn the OP is having issues with. It did nothing. Piston soak. Nada. Synthetic oil. Oil consumption doubled. The problem is this car had two...

Re: Heads Up on Purolator Oil Filter Quality

Thanks!

Peter Schreyer of Audi fame works for Kia and Hyundai. So there is German influence. The inside is not as busy as the 2013 Elantra. They put a lot into the 2017. It is more refined...

Re: Heads Up on Purolator Oil Filter Quality

It is an Elantra SE. It is as stripped down as you can get for an Automatic. Which means it pretty much like my loaded 99SL2 except steel wheels and no cassette. Mine was built in January, so...

Re: Heads Up on Purolator Oil Filter Quality

Thanks. My problem is my (BS) meter is broke. I am not sure it ever worked. :)

Re: Heads Up on Purolator Oil Filter Quality

I agree. My first oil change at Dealership was $23.91 and will only need two changes a year. Not driving a lot. Health issues and not having access to a garage in the future is pushing me toward...

Re: Heads Up on Purolator Oil Filter Quality

I guess the moral of the story at least for me is I will continue to use OEM Filters since the dealership is changing my oil and will not have warranty concerns. I cannot trust to buy filters at...

Thanks jambra1! The new car and has been a blessing. Seemed like the last repairs I did on my Saturn were physically getting to be too much for me. I am getting old. :)

Miss the forum, not the car. :) The 2017 Elantra is doing well. This thread at BITOG has some good info on filters. Enjoy!

Re: Said goodbye to my Satty today

I had my 99 SL2 for 13 years. I agree with the easy to maintain. That was the only thing that made it worth keeping. It was great for it's time but time has moved on.

I have 1,566 miles on my...

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

Wow. That is totally awesome with the battery! It seems like it was meant to be.

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

In 10 years or 100,000 later you can PM me good buddy. ;) I do have a warranty.

I drove the Saturn 13.5 years. I cost me over $20,000 with the price I paid and to have repairs done plus...

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

It may have not been the car's fault. I overpaid for a worn out Mustang. Did not have a Father or anyone to guide me. Found out later I bought it from a Druggie. It was a party car. I found...

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

Having a cool car is not the most important thing. Having a cool Dad is. :cool:

My first car was a 65 MUSTANG with Chrome Rims. It was cool until I had to Fix and Repair Daily.

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

Have you ever replaced the bellows on the power steering? I did 4 in past 3 years. Plus two starters. One water pump. One fender. Had a IP Panel Pin 5 melt down after a 15 hour shift. Being...

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

Missouri requires the seller of a car to have an emission inspection. So I went to a local Mom & Pop Indy shop with a good rep. Took about 30 minutes. I asked why he put it on the alignment rack...

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

You do realize Hyundai is a South Korean company?

You do realize the Sonic and Spark are GM Korea cars?

GM just did not have a product that fit my needs and budget.

Re: Selling SL2 for $250 in St Louis. Goodbye Saturn!

It is a much different world since I tuned up my parents 72 GMC with 3 on the Tree. Things were simple back then. Saturn represented the good old days when you could work on your own cars and it...
