Re: '98 DOHC Head Gasket Replacment

From poor memory the bracket looks like it could be for power steering pump. Maybe something to do with the intake.

Re: Are there any S-Series that have the GM L81 3.0L V6 Engine?

The S-series never had a V-6 from the factory

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Rear Brake Pad Swap (Special Tool Needed) ?

Brake clean will clean the brake fluid off of the rotors.

Starters do not have ground wires. They ground through the case of the starter.

Re: Please help - need idle pully stuff

The idler pulley mount/support is part of the timing chain cover. The condition yours appears to be in...not really there at all, means that you are looking at replacing the timing chain cover.

Re: 2000 L 5 spd clutch issue

You may want to get a different mechanic. Self adjusting hydraulic system. A quick visual inspection would show hydraulic lines instead of mechanical linkages.

Determine if the knocking engine is the 99 1/2 up or the 99 1/2 down engine.

The 99's that we saw had the newer engine with the narrower head come in about half ways through the model year. So if...

Re: Brake bleeding procedure

If you think that the bleeder is blocked remove it and clean it with small drill bits. You should be able to blow air through it if it is not blocked.
