Re: Turn signal bulb not working.

I had a dead side marker and went through the same.

Check the ground that is on the front passenger side. On my SL1 it's clearly visible from above, but you might have to look a bit harder with...

Re: Fail safe thermostat?

That is some serious price gouging! I don't know if it would fit anything other than the S Series car, but maybe GM used them in something else as well.

And cold is not good with a bad...

Re: Fail safe thermostat?

I could give you a list of subjects on the forum that will be the same. Most often due to repeated misinformation. :yes:

We had a forum member from NGK that explained the various plug brands...

Re: STANT 14279 theromostat problem

The push type pins have usually come out for me. Just pry the center stub out with either a small screwdriver or wire cutter pliers, then the outer section comes right out. IIRC the splash shield...

Re: Well darn, my '99 SL2 laps oil like a BMW

The Chemtool really does clean well. It got a lot more crap off my pistons on the top end soak than I thought even existed. It could have been also getting some carbon off the tops of the ring set,...

Re: Whats your MPG?

Last tank was just shy of 33 MPG. KInda dismal for the SL1, but hit quite a bit of traffic snarl on my short commute a couple of those days.

I've got a stack of fuel receipts in the car that I...

Re: Straight Up Bragging Rights

Just one.

But we've owned it since it was new, and we were "Saturn Launched" from the dealers showroom.

Re: Engine air filter proper orientation on housing/box

First photo is correct.

Would the top piece even go on the other direction?

Re: Mystery coolant leak

If it's intermittent, it could be a heat soak thing, or only happening when your temp rises up near fan on conditions or something.


I had one recently that took some digging to find. The...

Re: Extinct Car Day at Larz Anderson Museum 2019

Glad to see that the event had more people representing the brand this year! Sounds like a good time.

Re: Pictures of my 1999 Homecoming Edition..

Looks great, very well preserved.



A few years back I saw a '99 Homecoming advertised at a local dealer. The price vs mileage wasn't bad so I stopped by for a look.

It was horrid. The...

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

In the end it will be worth it. Prep work is everything with vinyl, since you can't polish it out after the fact. It looks like the people doing it have their act together.

Re: 3D printer turned plotter/cutter

I haven't gotten into the 3D printing thing yet, but had my first plotter about 25-26 years ago. The first software I had was DOS based even.

Plenty of fun stuff you can do once you get cutting...

Re: Great Autozone deals

Great Autozone deals

I'm not sure where people get parts, and where I live I have so many options close that I usually just price shop a little. If I'm in a hurry I just go with who is close and has it, or can get picky...

Re: Does TranSynd improve M/T shift smoothness?

The Transynd is a Group IV fluid, as are all the major oils that have been TES 295 approved for years.

The Transynd has and has had for years product data sheets with the specifics.

Re: Does TranSynd improve M/T shift smoothness?

Do you make this stuff up as you type it or do they teach it in Amsoil marketing classes?

Are Mobil and Castrol in a joint venture?

Re: Thermostat

I have one of the MotoRad units in my car now and it works fine. It actually runs closer to the "as delivered" temp then the first replacement Napa unit did.

Most of the brands out there work...

Re: Hot day (100) + A/C + Hills + Son Driving = Overheat

Second the above. I'd be suspect of the cap and/or reservoir first. The stock cooling system works for everyone else if working properly, so there should be no need to replace any components except...

Re: Thermostat

Well the Stant isn't an OE part either, so what's your point?

A thermostat with a housing will fit. IF the OP has an OE housing the Stant will fit. But buying a unit with a housing is a sure...

Re: UNL88: anyone use it? Pro/con

In the area I live, we can't find corn free gas on the road. But I find the same is true with octane in my single cammer. If I buy the higher octane, MPG return goes down. That was both before and...

Re: Any tests to determine if my MP7 transmission is slipping or not ?

If you look at the tire loading label on the b-pillar it will give you the tire size without anybody needing to look up codes.

Unless you have grossly under or oversized tires it's not really...

Re: 2001 SL1 won't run past idle.

To confirm the cat, you can remove the O2 sensor. This removes some of the exhaust restriction and will allow the car to move more exhaust gas, letting it rev more.

Used only short term, and make...

Re: Dirty throttle body = stalling, but why?

Good suggestions on both of the above. If you are getting air through either gasket leaks or EGR leaks, it's not properly compensated for. For that reason the throttle position doesn't jive with...

Re: Any tests to determine if my MP7 transmission is slipping or not ?

Regardless of programming and tire sizes, it's apparent that the car either isn't in 4th gear or the converter isn't locked.

The SC2's are approximately 25 mph per 1000 revs in 4th gear with the...
