Re: how to remove throttle cable from 2000 Saturn SL2 1.9L DOHC

Re: how to remove throttle cable from 2000 Saturn SL2 1.9L DOHC

Re: So how do you test the O2 sensor on a 2000 Saturn S-series?

Re: So how do you test the O2 sensor on a 2000 Saturn S-series?

well I would add that, what these other two guys were saying, oldnuc and ehunter are saying, about the sine waves, that's if you are testing the o2 sensor through the ECM, or the computerized...

Lucas Oil treatments. Aren't they just a big scam?

Re: This 'Factory Service Manual" they sell on the internet, for Saturns.

What I don't get is, why doesn't someone just scan the REAL factory service manuals and sell them?

It's a great idea, but these clowns are scamming people.

Re: Improved Gas Mileage...Wow!

I've noticed the Saturn 2000 gets ALOT better gas mileage when you are driving 65-70 MPH, I think it is rigged and set to run at that speed to pass the mpg fuel ratings set.

Re: So how do you test the O2 sensor on a 2000 Saturn S-series?

so apparently, if the oxygen sensor has one or two wires, it's non-heated, if it has 3 or 4 wires, it's heated.

Re: So how do you test the O2 sensor on a 2000 Saturn S-series?

Re: My Saturn 2000 won't start. Security Light, Gas gauge not working.

just a perfect example, I'll pull up 50 pages of comments on the O2 sensor, I'll do a search for 'Ohms', you know, because you would have to test it for Ohms, and there will ALWAYS be a big fat ZERO,...

Re: My Saturn 2000 won't start. Security Light, Gas gauge not working.

I bought the Chilton, and the Haynes repair manuals for the Saturn 2000 and they are both exactly the same, which is very odd.

Re: Jacking up the rear on a saturn SL sedan?

they blocks would probably be ok under the rear, but the front, where the engine is, I wouldn't trust it. What are jack stands, $10? How much is it to reconstruct your chest? $100,000?

Re: My Saturn 2000 won't start. Security Light, Gas gauge not working.

I guess the PCMB fuse goes to the fuel pump, so maybe it was because my gas was so low.

It starts to 'hiccup' when the pump gets air I think, maybe causes a surge through the circuit, definitely...
