Re: clutch master cylinder/slave cylinder recommended replacments hel

Luk is the brand you want. They provided the clutches for saturn oem. Always get the master and slave together. Theyíre not designed to be bled in service.

Re: Idle questions/ gas mileage

Stuck high idle that returns on restart indicates a tps or the connector. If the rpm comes back down on its own itís not the tps.

Re: Power steering pressure line.

Nope. Pump must come out. Just replace the line while youíre there. Itís a wear item.

Re: 1999 DOHC Smoking like crazy

Sounds like its burning oil. Its probably not worth it to fix if you're looking to get money out of it. Maybe easier to sell as-was or even scrap unfortunately. Fixing an oil burner is a labor of...

Re: '06 Vue AWD V6 O2 sensor locations

The Feds allow shops to clear code so customers don't complain the light is still on when they leave the shop. But the system is always monitoring itself and will clear the code eventually when it...

Yes. When I say backprobe I mean shoving the probe in the output end of the connector.

Re: TPS woes

As a follow up. I placed a multimeter at the PCM connector across the TPS voltage and its ground. I taped the multimeter to the dash so I could watch it. The problem has never again happened (knock...

Re: '06 Vue AWD V6 O2 sensor locations

Plugs are easy. They are under the coil. Youíll need an extension as theyíre deep in there.
Note that the timing belt is due around the same time as plugs so much of us do them together.

Re: '06 Vue AWD V6 O2 sensor locations

O2 sensors are wear components in my book; not too unlike spark plugs. Itís not uncommon to have to change the upstream ones.

Re: New CAT Help

$300 is a bit of a good deal. I found the same you did. Itís cheaper to pay someone to weld a universal than to try to find a CA approved bolt on that actually fits. A muffler shop should make quick...

Re: IDLE air control maybe?

Bad iac or tps would throw a code. They monitor their own performance. If youíre not getting codes you may a dirty throttle body.

Re: Clutch Change - Engine Support?

I put a jack under the engine. Could also use a top support structure. The clutch on these cars is pretty simple. Takes an afternoon.

Re: 02 SL2- Right CV Axle Replacement Problem

Assuming itís the same as the manual there is no snap ring. It should slip in without issue. The drivers side has a snap ring. On the saturns itís usually not hard to push past if you get a running...

Re: 2002 SC2 Power Steering Replacement (Noise)

Par for the course with aftermarket pumps. Grab one at a junk yard. There are no quality reman pumps.

Re: Solder or crimp?

Except as pointed out above the FAA prohibits solder because a professional crimper is more reliable and less prone to breaking from vibration.

Re: Solder or crimp?

Same here. Soldering only allowed for avionics. Everything is crimped with approved parts and tools.
Thinking is that aircraft vibration could fail a solder.

Re: Solder or crimp?

Done right I prefer solder but crimping with a proper crimping tool is pretty fool proof and as you said you can get crimps with heat shrink ends.
