Re: LW-300 End-of-the-Line??

So I decided today that I will not be fixing the Saturn.

I am going to be contacting a local organization that takes donated cars and either fixes them or sells them to help pay for repairs to...

LW-300 End-of-the-Line??

The day I knew would come seems to have arrived.

With just over 224K on the odometer, I had a no start condition last Friday evening on my 2001 LW-300. For about 2 years now I have had...

Re: Replacing Ignition Coil Units

Not a bad suggestion to run a compression check.

I was thinking that I need to just replace both Coil units, since they are both 17 years old and have over 200K on them. If one is developing an...

Re: Exhaust repairs

Speaking of exhaust leaks and noise - I already shared how repairing the rearmost flex pipe section fixed my Lean Codes. I had been expecting it to do more for the noise level, but even after...

Re: LW-300 Front Brakes

OK - what I called the Pad Frame you are calling the Caliper Mounting bracket.

Sorry for the incorrect terminology, but I do not have the factory Service manual.

That has the 2 large bolts to...

Another update:

FDryer - the Service Bulletins you posted relating to the P0171 and P0174 codes actually had my answer in them, I just could not see the forest for the trees. One of the items...

Re: LW-300 Front Brakes

Just as a follow-up (in case anyone else is looking for this information):

I got the front brakes replaced about 10 days ago. The bolt holding the rotors in place was a hex key bolt, took a M5 key...

LW-300 Front Brakes

All,

I need to install the new rotors and pads I have for the front brakes on my 2001 LW-300. I know from looking at these back when I did the rear rotors and pads (the front were OK at the time...

Re: 05 L300 Thermosat Replacement

Having just had this work done on my car ('01 LW-300) I can cite an example of how the costs can grow.

Car at 200,000 miles, so time to do the timing belt, components & water pump. Since the plugs...

Re: Programming new key FOB?

I just had this done at a local Buick/GMC dealer and it was $40.

Newer generations made this easier, but our Saturns require the use of the Tech2 tool.

Re: 2001 LW-300 getting 200,000 mile service

My own personal experience with Dex-Cool does not concern engine sludging, but premature failure of seals and gaskets. In addition to this Saturn, we owned a 1998 Malibu with the 3.0L V-6 (Pushrod...

Re: Transmission Shift Point Adjustment ?

As a completely different point of view, i know with my 2001 LW-300 (V-6 engine) when the shop told me my MAF sensor had Zero Output (and I had no codes set or MIL lit)- I found once I replaced the...

Re: 2001 LW-300 getting 200,000 mile service

Thanks for the input on the thermostat. It was the car not getting fully up to temperature along with the plugs having 200,000 on them that led to the manifold being removed - so indeed the...

2001 LW-300 getting 200,000 mile service

So my odometer crossed over the 200,000 miles mark about 10 days ago. I had not done ANYTHING to the transmission since I purchased the car in June 2007 with 41,000 miles on it.

SO - my first...

Re: 2001 l200 Clicking from Shifter Area

The clicking sound from the shifter area when applying the brakes is simply the Brake-Park Interlock. If it does this all the time it may be related to the indication failure making it think the car...

Re: O2 Sensor life question

Thanks FDryer!

That is one reason that I specified that I was not using GM Scantool, because there is obviously a difference.

The documents you posted seem to confirm what I believe about fuel...

Does anyone here know if there is a specified interval at which the O2 sensors on the L81 engine (V-6) should be changed? Does the FSM specify a replacement Interval?

Re: MAF Question

I disagree with the underlined portion of your previous post. Due to the nature of the 4 stroke engine, it takes 2 full revolutions of the crankshaft to have all cylinders in the engine...

1) Your engine / computer / vehicle is working - i.e. not throwing codes, not having any run or drivability issues;

2) Some of...
