Re: Lost odometer and needle lights

I didn't even notice your odometer bulb was out - d'oh! and it was even in the thread title. Somehow got focused entirely on the needle lights.

Re: ECU Temperature reading, S series?

wait, is both not an option? :D

rough start/high idle points towards the ECTS - you wouldn't get that with just a bad tstat (though you might see slightly high ~1200 rpm idle when engine is...

Re: Lost odometer and needle lights

I don't think the needles themselves were lit. They reflected light from the "theater" bulbs, the top two. Some folks were able to reach / replace by removing the top dash panel and reaching back....

Re: roof panel question

Low Saturn used to be a regular here but got rid of his last S a while ago. . . though he did pick up another for his son about a year ago. His brother had one (of the 99) yellow/black Special...

Re: Looking for a central console armrest

I'm 99% sure the armrests from 96-99 SC will fit in your SL2 - some one can confirm this

you can fit the whole console (from cupholder back) from the 2000-2002 SL/SC/SW as well with some work...

Re: SL1 revving way too high at idle and while driving

+1 on TPS.

I had same issue, TPS fixed it for a few days, then the symptoms returned.

Exchanged the new defective TPS for another one, then all was good.

Re: dead cigarette lighter socket

Good info, thanks!

Saturn must have made a change - maybe owners were complaining of cig lighter issues. I'm showing for my 98 the cig lighter on #13 by itself (PL still on #12). But for...

Re: dead cigarette lighter socket

Probably not the F5 issue as there would be other issues (F5 issue due to a lot of loads being run through that juncture - chime, fuel pump, etc)

Go to the passenger side - pull the panel by the...

Re: hvac levers and cable lubrication

3rd gen still used cables. The rotary knobs are connected to rotating gears, which move the cables. Got a good pic of the front. The red arrows show where the cable ends attach.

Yep, need to trim the corner of the pan


This oilpan clearance is a problem only for 3rd gen-engined cars (2000-2002)

Re: What the !%&*@ is going on here?

I don't think it is just Saturns - hard to find good cheap cars anymore.

Shortage of cheap transportation, and high demand.

Re: Sl2 rear suspension

no, you never bend anything to align. Always involves loosening a bolt, moving something, then re-tightening.

You're talking about part 15 on the right side of this diagram?

Re: 2001 SL1 Stick Shift No Power

It's a 2001 - check the pre-cat. Exhaust manifold will connect to a coffee-can looking thing, the innards could be clogged or broken off. This chokes the exhaust before the cat.

The fix is...

I agree, but there is no rust in that engine pic.

On my '02 SC2, you can see rust on the battery bolts, strut mount bolts, radiator support, light brackets, etc. That engine pic looks really...

Re: Some updates and repairs on my 1999 Homecoming..PICS

Good to hear the underbody is in decent shape. Rust is the worst. My Saturns would be excellent except for the rust. Just like the exterior :D

Nice work on the headliner!

Mine had a few minor wrinkles but they are covered by the passenger sunshade, so normally out of sight :D Plus a few areas where my sunroof is could use a little work....
