Re: ECU Temperature reading, S series?

I agree, 180F is still a little low. You might be that 'lucky' person that has more than one condition going on at the same time :)

Re: Repairing or Replacing Driver's Seat

sorry, late to this post. But if you feel like going back, you can pick up the seat cover (just the fabric part) for the seat-back from the passenger seat, and put it on the driver side.

Dunno...

Re: My experience with a R12A recharge kit.....

good info


If your system is already empty, I'd recommend replacing the Schraeder valve stems/cores.

They're only $5 last time I checked. Just anecdotal but that's where the leaks...

Re: How often do you clean your throttle body?

With my 2nd gen, I cleaned it once every year or three depending on what else I was doing (for example, if I was replacing the air filter or cleaning the EGR, I'd go ahead and pull the throttle body...

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Yesterday, pulled the rear seat bottom to clean out underneath. Lots of dog hair from previous owner. Found a small socket, 7 or 8mm (not sure if PO's or one of mine that I lost). Also found a zip...

Re: Lost odometer and needle lights

I didn't even notice your odometer bulb was out - d'oh! and it was even in the thread title. Somehow got focused entirely on the needle lights.

Did fixing odometer bring back you needle...

Re: ECU Temperature reading, S series?

wait, is both not an option? :D

rough start/high idle points towards the ECTS - you wouldn't get that with just a bad tstat (though you might see slightly high ~1200 rpm idle when engine is...

Re: Lost odometer and needle lights

I don't think the needles themselves were lit. They reflected light from the "theater" bulbs, the top two. Some folks were able to reach / replace by removing the top dash panel and reaching back....

Re: SL1 revving way too high at idle and while driving

+1 on TPS.

I had same issue, TPS fixed it for a few days, then the symptoms returned.

Exchanged the new defective TPS for another one, then all was good.

Re: dead cigarette lighter socket

Re: dead cigarette lighter socket

Probably not the F5 issue as there would be other issues (F5 issue due to a lot of loads being run through that juncture - chime, fuel pump, etc)

Go to the passenger side - pull the panel by the...

Re: hvac levers and cable lubrication

3rd gen still used cables. The rotary knobs are connected to rotating gears, which move the cables. Got a good pic of the front. The red arrows show where the cable ends attach.

Re: What the !%&*@ is going on here?

I don't think it is just Saturns - hard to find good cheap cars anymore.

Shortage of cheap transportation, and high demand.

You're talking about part 15 on the right side of this diagram?
