Re: Possible ABS problem

Sounds like you have a stuck solenoid valve in the modulator block. This can happen if someone bleeds the brakes incorrectly at some point in the car's life.

The ABS realises this a few seconds...

In other news, that metal looks like packing foam spray-painted silver. :D

Re: Rear passenger e-brake stuck after not even using it on 2001 Saturn L200

Snapped off bleeder valves can be removed by gently heating the brake cylinder with a blow-torch and hammering a TORX bit into the hole. Spin it gently and you are in business. Be careful, brake...

Re: Rear passenger e-brake stuck after not even using it on 2001 Saturn L200

With that said though, the L series rear disk brake setup is 100 times better than the 'designed by Fred Flintstone, drunk' garbage drums.

I wouldn't even bother looking at fixing the rear drums,...

Re: 6 random questions. 2001 Saturn L100?

Good luck finding a decent manifold! It took me six months and $250 just to get the part here in Canada. :|

In better news the manifold swap itself was quite straightforward.

Re: What the heck is this part?

Also as you install the hose, try and have it squished a little bit, as that removes as much of the air as possible and creates suction drawing up water when you get it on.

Doing that I've never...

Re: Expensive thermostat replacement!

To be fair, the 1984 Yugo 45 was a better car than the L Series, at least by volume of units sold and average cost of repair. :D

I think you've hit upon the real problem though which isn't really...

Re: Is This Where I Do It?

The directions I followed told me to aerate the fluid with an egg whisk before taking it near the engine. I think that step often gets missed and people pout it straight in neat - that could well...

Re: Is This Where I Do It?

I had Ford Sierra (Pinto 1.6 engine) that always ran on when you stopped it: coke deposits were hot-spotting and raising compression enough that it would diesel under its own power without the spark...

Re: Dual Exhaust cutouts in bumper

Hmmm. Well certain Vectra diesels had the exhaust on the other side, so I'd reckon it could be that: a uni-purpose rear bumper built for an engine that never made it to this side of the pond.

Re: Dual Exhaust cutouts in bumper

I think it's probably because the V6 was a parts bin special with all sorts of parts from GMs European and North American line up randomly thrown together. They probably just had a design for a...

Re: LW200 Build Thread {Frostman}

And that break is exactly why you should never put a variable load like a power steering pump on the timing chain.

It wasn't your fault mate, bad design from day 1.

Re: LW200 Build Thread {Frostman}

Woah you still drove the car with it sounding like that!? :xeye:

Sadly I think you're probably correct and have become the latest victim of excellent design choices by GM. Sorry dude!

Re: Saturn L200 start issue

Very bad bore wash can produce zero compression. Google 'lawn mower syndrome'!

Re: 2001 L300 Powersteering Issue

Only the return hose can be screwed to the reservoir with a jubilee clamp. The others are bolt on high-pressure type fittings.

The high pressure hose is the one that whines and removing these...

Re: 2001 L300 questions

Well, I think you'd have to chop the input pipe then either weld on a flange or weld directly to the middle pipe.

The shipping alone on that thing is going to be exorbitant though, eh?

Whilst the European Vectra muffler looks very similar, it mounts in a different way to the rest of the exhaust.

Re: 2001 L300 Powersteering Issue

If you still have the original hoses on the pump that's pretty much normal. GM released a 'tuned' hose which is longer with an intermediate orifice to correct that issue, but of course it's $100+ and...

Re: 2001 L300 questions

There's no difference in the back-boxes (muffler) except some L300's had dual exhaust tips. Same diameter piping and flow-rate.

Re: Failed inspection: p0455 Evaporative emission control system leak detected

The gas filler neck will probably be rusted to ****. Some truly excellent metal choices and designing the evap section out of very thin steel means they rust through years before the neck itself.
