Re: Who's running 205/50R15's with manual steering? How about vs 195/55?

smaller diameter and lighter weight will both theoretically contribute to better acceleration. Whether that acceleration increase is noticeable is another question :)

Just an opinion, no real...

Re: Considering Purchasing this car... opinions?

Congratulations on the new Saturn! I'll bet it doesn't even burn much oil yet.

Interesting the breather hose was changed. Old one probably just rotted from age.

I think white is a great...

Re: Considering Purchasing this car... opinions?

Noticed the trunk, too. Other than that, car looked really clean. You'd want to take a good look underneath the car, might see body/frame damage.

Too bad they (probably) won't let you remove...

Re: Fluid running noise in cabin, weak heat

When I saw the thread title about the noise, my first thought was, "I bet that's a 3rd gen car."

I never saw the TSB but from reading around here on saturnfans, whatever feature this is, seems...

Re: Fuel Gauge Question?

Guessing a bit of burnout?

I hadn't seen a post by madpogue in a while, either. Only on post in 2018 and that was in OT. Only 5 posts in 2017. I think I missed seeing most of madpogue's posts...

Re: Fuel Gauge Question?

On some other car makes, cleaning the grounds helps the erratic / incorrect fuel gauge readings.

I think it was madpogue that used to say the best low fuel warning light was the trip odometer.

Re: Revs high

If you had a leak at the intake manifold gasket, you'd have high idle all the time. The way to test would be to spray a liquid such as carb cleaner or water around the gasket with the engine...

Re: Hitch for Bike rack

Nothing to add other than;

rustproof around wherever you drill (even if rust is not normally an issue where you are), and
your bike is worth a lot more than your car :D

Re: 01 SC1 No heat after replacing most parts

With all that you've done, the problem is most likely in the controls or the flaps.

Your 2001 SC1 uses a rotary dial with blue and red markings to control the temp. If you pull out that section,...

Re: Looking for a mechanic - New Here

^ ^ ^ Yep.

Or, if you really can't / won't work on the car yourself, ask for mechanic recommendations on the S-series General forum

Re: 2002 sl2 p1404 no 12V to E(red) wire?

Re: Looking for an OEM block heater

$125 is a lot of moolah. :)
Probably worth it for those real cold Canadian nights, though.

Re: Chrome P-Brake Handle

You'd probably be the first. Nothing else stock inside the car is chrome, so it would stand out.

Is the replacement handle metal, or is it chromed plastic?

It probably says it is "universal...

Mike, what do you plan on doing with this car? Just curious. Just an extra to keep around and restore eventually?
I didn't think you needed any more cars :)

Used to be common on 1980s cars. Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Ford, Chrysler, even GM. Usually on coupes but occasionally on sedans.
