Re: Not a Saturn owner anymore...but

Re: Not a Saturn owner anymore...but

Re: Not a Saturn owner anymore...but

I pulled the top passenger side mount and I honestly don't know what's good and what's bad, the "rubber" (rubber?) is intact and feels reasonably firm although on the mazda sites they claim that OEM...

Re: 99 SL1 no spark not ICM or CPS

Re: All Sorts of Problems!... i think

definitely have a valve cover leak, gonna take care of that today. P0300 i suspect from oil leaking down to the ICM. Hope the Timing cover isnt leaking also. Any culprit for the knock sensor code?...
