Re: Saturn models that are easy to work on

I agree with others who've stated that the '99 and prior S-Series models would be the easiest vehicles to work on. It doesn't mean that every repair was simple. Such a thing is impossible to expect,...

Re: Ls2 v6 turning over but not starting

If one is merely using an old fuel pump and attempting to test if it can move fuel, is it actually necessary to use gasoline? Could one not use water instead? Yes, water is heavier, but it is...
