Re: 2.2l oil pan gasket not available?

You have me confused.

What does me answering your question about the oil pan gasket have to do with you finding metal in the oil pan?

Re: 2.2l oil pan gasket not available?

The gasket will be RTV silicon. No preformed type of gasket is used.

Re: 97 saturn sl1 A.C. work

Initial thought is that you have to much oil in the system.
The total amount of oil in the system should be 5 ounces. Ideally the oil should be drained from the original compressor so that the...

Re: Slow-to-release brakes and brake groan fixed!

It is not so much the brake hose collapsing. It is the metal bracket on the hose rusting and squeezing the hose closed. If the bracket was expanded open then the issue would likely go away.

Re: Front end shaking upon fast acceleration.

The L-series does not have a history of differential pin issues. The S-series does.

Has the suspension been checked? Axles?

Which engine? Auto or manual transmission?

Re: 2004 3.5 V6 Saturn Vue Ignition Control Unit

This engine uses coils over plugs. The coils are controlled by the ECM/PCM so there is no ignition control module.

What is the issue with the car? What is it doing or not doing? Any codes?

Front bottom area of the engine. More under the intake rather than out in the open.

Re: "Quill" seal

Quill seal replacement requires that transmission be taken apart so that the quill seal can be pressed out and in. The transmission case also needs to be supported so that it does not crack.

Re: State Inspection failed

Sounds like you are looking at/talking about the outer tie rod. You said that they listed the inner tie rod. This is the one at the steering rack under the bellows boot.

Re: Removing wires!

The piece with the rod is the BTSI (brake transaxle shift interlock) solenoid. If you remove it/the wires you will need to disable the interlock system.

Re: 2004 vue 6 - cvt to manual swap - recommended mechanic in San Diego ca ?

The CVT was not on any V-6 Saturn engine. It nearly managed to handle the power of the 4 cylinder. It would never be able to handle a V-6.

Re: Notes on Saturn SL1 Clutch Replacement How-To

The flywheel to crankshaft bolts do not need to be replaced when removed. Unless damaged or missing you can reuse them.

If not available from a GM dealer try a wrecking yard.

Re: 2002 Saturn SL1 Quill Seal Removal

Put it back in place. It is a spacer ring for clearances.

The outer ring is a retainer for the seal.
