Re: 2000 Saturn SL2 DOHC not starting

Fuel pressure test? Forget doing that, with that low oil compression, its time for a rebuild.
185 is marginally low, but 140?

Re: Where did my coolant disappear to?

Billr, "in 60 yrs, used anything other than tap water in both cooling systems and batteries".
Same with me, only 53 years tho.
However; for the last 30 years, only used well water for everything.

Re: I got stung today...........

Car has new "breaks", seller is not familiar with spelling the English language.
Worse is that they don't even realize the error.

Re: 2001 SL2 repeatedly blows fuse but only at >60 mph.....

Do the simple stuff first.
The OP's photos clearly indicate that is the hot spot.
Once that's corrected the problem should be gone for good.

It's like with health issues.
Use this simple list...

Welcome.
Most likely, after you replace the entire male and female connectors, you will notice that speed had nothing to do with the electrical failures.

Re: 2000 saturn sw2 cooling fan issues

^^ I never owned Gen 1, but doesn't that sensor only have 1 wire, not 2? It should be obvious then if it were the wrong sensor, no?
Edit: guess not, that part # is for a 2 pin sensor.......my error.

Re: 2000 saturn sw2 cooling fan issues

I brought up this subject on my 5/29/2020 post.
You need to disconnect those 2 ECTS wires, solder them together and use a heat-shrink wrap over the joint otherwise it WILL fail.

Re: key code

GM dealer says NO? Did they elaborate as to why not?
Otherwise, if you have the car registration , then any locksmith can look up your VIN and cut a key if needed, or provide the key code if needed.
