Re: driver side transaxle stuck

I have had the same problem. A 3lb hammer with abrass bar wouldn't work. I ended up pulling intermediate shaft and all out to work on it on the bench. It took a couple of good wacks with a 16lb...

Re: 2001 saturn dohc lower block tie plate

Re: Connecting Rod Bearings 2002 SL2 1.9 DOHC

They are new bearings. I'm not as concerned with them fitting the ground crank as I am with them fitting the over bored connecting rod. They are definitely labeled as us .5mm.

I am rebuilding this engine and having a difficult time verifying I have the correct rod bearings. The old ones were labeled .25us. .05os rod bore. The crank was turned to.5us and the more bearings...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

First, this is the 1.9 DOHC engine (2002).
The pawl on the tensioner keeping it from compressing once extended broke into two pieces, allowing the tensioner to compress, putting slack in the chain....

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

Sometimes time is the enemy. Finally got the engine pulled and crankshaft removed. The rod bearings and journals look good, but the main bearings and journals look horrible. Way too much wear for 5k...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1: Parts Source

I have been directed toward Rock Auto on this forum in the past. Is this a good place to get engine parts? I noticed that to get the brand name parts, they are about the same as local suppliers. Any...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

I went to take pictures late last night and realized that I needed to take the oil pump apart to see if there were any issues. When the chain failed, it seemed to be a catastrophic failure. The...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

Looking on the Sealed Power website, it looks like all of the Hypereutectic pistons have the coated skirts. Maybe I am misreading something, but from this I would assume that my pistons had the...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

I will look at the oil pump cavity tonight. The cam journals look ok as I recall, but I will look again tonight. I don't know if they were the coated skirt pistons or not. And I did the assembly, not...

Re: Rebuild #2 What went wrong with#1

The cylinder sides are scored. I didn't take pictures. Here are the pictures of the four pistons. #4 is the worst with obvious heat damage. I wonder if it is possible I damaged the pistons installing...

I will try resizing and uploading from my computer tomorrow. In the meantime finish pulling the engine to be bored again.

Re: Not easy to shift

My '96 did the same thing. On mine, it didn't gradually get worse, but rather happened quite suddenly. It ended up being the shift cable linking the stick to the transmission. It started to feel...

Re: Cannot Get Shift Cable Clips Back On
