Re: 2001 SC2 - Check Engine light P0341

I experienced P0341 just a few months ago. Recommend you check your coil pack towers for corrosion. If you're not sure where the coil pack is, just trace your spark plug wires from the top of the...

Re: ECM and Cruise Control Question

In addition to getting the PCM reprogrammed properly, it sounds like you still need to troubleshoot your cruise. The symptoms you describe are indicative of a faulty cruise module. Luckily it's an...

Still working this problem. Going to get a ratcheting tie down strap and try it tonight. I also need to buy another can of PB Blaster!

Re: '96 SW2 water pump issue?

I believe that 2NDSOUT is referring to the A/C compressor, not the condenser, but his advice about moving it makes sense (and, to clarify, don't disconnect the lines to the compressor, just remove...

Re: Cruise Control install, not working?

I haven't tried that, but you should be able to. If you remove the four screws on the module's side cover, then carefully pull off that cover, you'll see that the controller board is mounted on the...

Re: Cruise Control Problem. Help!!!

I'll second that. Had the identical problem as the OP, and solved it by replacing the underdash cruise module with a junkyard replacement. Very easy DIY repair.

Re: 1996 saturn sl1 help

For the A/C, you might want to take a quick look at the compressor wiring harness, which attaches to the upper passenger side of the radiator fan shroud. This harness may have been damaged during...

Re: Great site, and great people.

When I first discovered this forum, our SL2 was at around 150,000 miles and really showing its age -- original ECTS, worn upper engine mount, leaking valve cover gasket, the usual suspects. Now it's...

Re: Coolant leak -- repair advice needed

Thanks all for the replies. I didn't know that was a common failure point on the OEM radiator, but after 202K miles I can't complain. I just ordered an aftermarket radiator from Advance and will...

Coolant leak -- repair advice needed

1996 SL2 5-speed, 202,000 miles.

The low coolant light came on yesterday, and the coolant level in the reservoir was down. I topped it off, but it went down about an inch today. So I put the car...

Re: Just checking: ATF is fine for power steering, right?

After replacing my power steering pump assembly about two years ago, I filled up with Mobil 1 synthetic ATF. Zero problems to report. I say go right ahead and don't worry about it.

Re: SL Water Pump Replacement DIY

You are correct. The switch to Dexcool did happen sometime in the 1996 model year, but I no longer remember exactly when. Got an SL2 built in October 1995 using the green stuff over here.

Re: 98 SW2 Manual Transmission Fluid

Another vote for Mobil 1 synthetic ATF, especially if you experience bitterly cold winters where you live.

Re: Power steering oil

Mobil 1 synthetic ATF (automatic transmission fluid). Not the motor oil. I'm using Mobil 1 ATF for my power steering, after reading suggestions on this board. So far, so good.

Re: self-accelerating cruise control...

Another vote for the cruise module. I had the same problem, and installed a replacement module from I think it cost about $60. Anyway, that solved the problem.

Re: Speaking of second hand S Saturns

Maybe a previous owner had a body shop paint the bumpers, either for cosmetic or collision repair reasons. The rear bumper paint doesn't seem to match the rest of the body, but maybe that's just due...

Re: Serpantine belt for 97 SOHC are tensioner and idler pulleys same w or w/o PS and

You can also remove the idler pulley without removing the upper engine mount. I used a 13mm, six point box end wrench and got the idler out just fine. Things are a little cramped for space with the...

Re: Idler pulley and/or tensioner pulley replace

I just did this job a week ago. If you're replacing the tensioner (about $88 on you might as well replace the idler pulley at the same time. For both jobs you need to remove the...

Re: 95 Saturn Sl2 Oil Problems

If oil is pooling up in a spark plug well, I'd replace the valve cover gasket. There is a procedure posted in the How To Library. It's a fairly simple DIY repair.

Re: Cruise Control won't set

That's precisely the problem I had a year ago, and replacing the module with one from a junkyard solved the problem.

Re: Manual to automatic transmission

I hope you're successful! Teaching an automatic driver to handle a manual transmission seems like a lot less work than converting an SL1 from manual to auto.
