Re: Potential project car

I'd vote yes. Would be a great learning experience. Get it running, fix the little things, and decide if you have the budget and appetite for a proper rebuild​. If you do you could have the car for...

Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

As much as I appreciate the AC when it's hot, there is something to be said for simplicity! Parts not there never break.

Re: Saturn Craigslist Deal of the Day!

Also not a super deal, but a manual transmission single cam with low low miles!

Re: Amsoil Weirdness

Why is that? Does it lower MPG or something?

Re: Saturn SL2 Spark-Plug blasphemy

What fuel mileage did you record for each plug type?

Re: What is this? How about that? (Pictures)

That is where it went - it is a gearbox vent. Maybe the hose rotted and broke. I'll see if I have any pictures.

Re: How bad is this rust?

Saturninin, did you see the PM I sent? May be interested in the parts if Jonasan308 is not.

Re: Replacing thermostat is there a housing gasket?

I would go for any new one that fits. I would not reuse the old one.

Re: Best Muffler that lasts the longest 2000 SL2

I must be lucky - same exhaust since it rolled off the line in '99.

Re: 96 SC2 bringing it back to life (slowly)

Nicely done! Those engine guts look different than my '99. Did you mean cam caps?

I didn't use it. Seemed optional. No leaks.

Re: 96 SC2 bringing it back to life (slowly)

Bummer. Is that part steel? Maybe you can drill a couple small holes in the back, drive it out, and seal the holes with RTV. I'd be worried about the welding. That part needs to be pretty flat for...

Re: Tranny project

When we put our case halves together it was like a dream. You should not need to force it. There are the two snap rings that have to be set in sequence.

Play with the shift tower a bit. There is...

Re: Not sure what this is called on the front end suspension, help.

You absolutely could analyze the stiffness of the two bars and see if they are matched. I'm an engineer, and academically I could do it. But consider this - I've had both, both handle just fine, and...

Re: 1994 sl1 5 speed STUCK IN REVERSE :(

I'd suggest looking at the shifter cable. Both at the shifter and on the transmission. The cable end probably fell off or busted.

Re: Whats your MPG?

Seems low to me. We have been pulling down 29 MPG pretty consistently since the rebuild. We don't do much highway travels with it but we were up in the 30's with a ski pod on top.
