Re: How should i remove stickers from my SC2?

For easy to find stuff Goo Gone works fairly well. Isopropyl alcohol works but not as well, and you have to watch the stronger stuff on certain surfaces.

Almost all the stuff used in the sign...

Re: SW2 Halloween Costume

That's working out fairly well, it looks really good. Running in it might be another story. Just don't fall and break the thing! :no:

Re: “Coated” Wheel Weights

Interesting. I've seen sign materials that are coated on one side and magnetic. It might just be a similar product with a higher plastic content or something.

As long as they don't mess with the...

Re: Should I actually bother with buying a Saturn? Semidisabled novice needs advice..

Scrimbus,

We've owned a '95 single cammer since we purchased it new, and overall I'd say it's a reliable and easy to work on car. The common issues that happen are easy and cheap to fix, and the...

Re: Challenged to a drag race

I think you should both be jailed for spending the effort on doing a lot of work for a drag race when instead you could just spend the effort turning the Grand National into a street rocket. :yes:

Re: Weird EGR problem. Code P0401 "insufficient flow".

In the case of my car, I consider it mild detonation at the worst, and haven't concerned myself with it. The outside temp must be cooler and the car temp on the way up, but it's a small window it...

Re: No heat and no pressure at resevoir cap

I'd check coolant temp in the reservoir at operating temp, after checking out the top hose during a cold start warm up. If the thermostat is bad and the ECTS/gauge isn't showing it, you might kill...

Re: 1996SL11.9L's 2002 SL1

I've never used a battery maintainer or such device in the Saturn, and have had amazing battery life out of an Autozone red battery. We get a lot more of the hot temps than the cold, but do see...

Re: Weird EGR problem. Code P0401 "insufficient flow".

Under certain conditions my '95 SL1 will do the same thing. Usually at freezing or so temps, and for a very brief period during the warm up. Moderate throttle and load.

If I baby it until engine...

I have an Autozone red battery in the Saturn, and it's the only battery other than the factory battery that has been in the car. It's lasted wwwaaaayyy longer than expected out of any battery.

Re: Interesting oil related article and data

BITOG is good to have around, but at times the actual data is still lacking while people argue over what works. :dizzy:
