Re: R134a port caps

Third for new valves. Kit is under $10 (maybe closer to $5) for two valves and two new plastic caps.

There is a tool that allows you to remove the valve cores with no more than a loss of a puff...

Re: 01 sl2 100,000 refresh?

+1, I ran Walmart Supertch synthetic for 5k miles all the time in my '98.
More likely, the PO never checked the oil between oil changes:dizzy:

I checked the oil on my 98 every week and added 3~6...

Re: New to Saturn

6 years since you bought the car - time flies :)

If the AC needs occasional refilling, there is a (very slow) leak. I'd try tightening the Schrader valves first since it costs $0 and can be done...

Re: Current Motor Oil Rebates

Not a rebate, but a clearance.

2.5 gallons (10 quarts) of 5w40 Rotella T6 for $15 (per OP at link, is marked down at $30 but rings up at $15, could be a pricing error at Walmart)

Re: AC without the engine

according to this:

you'd probably use 1.3~2.4 gallons of gas idling overnight (8 hours). Since the car is...

Re: How many s series owners became ion owners

Reminds me of when I went to replace my Horizon (40 mpg hwy). The replacement they had on lot, the Sundance with a 2.5L / manual trans, was rated for 28 mpg hwy. Not even close.

Re: I got stung today...........

Thanks, but WI is a bit far for me to drive. If I'm going that far for an old Saturn, I'd go south first :D

Also need to get rid of a couple of cars before adding one more. Driveway is about...

Re: 2001 SL2 repeatedly blows fuse but only at >60 mph.....

I dealt with my "previous owner DIY wiring mess" at the front of my car (no high beams or DRLs) by grabbing some stock wiring at the junkyard.

I figured it was worth the money not to have to...

Do you have a known good one you can swap?


Some auto parts stores will test for you - there is no other good DIY home test

It has an automatic transmission that you change gears by using the stick thing in between the seats, so . . .

Re: Newbie Question

Nearly forgot, early cars (91-92) use a slightly different front subframe/motor mount. You probably won't need a subframe if rust is not an issue where you are, but one of the S-series weaknesses...

Pop up headlight motors. NLA new.
I think I read somewhere that one of the corvette (w pop up light) motors could be used? You'd have to search here as I might be misremembering

Re: WiFi OBD software

Reported. Spambot, looks like. New user (joined today), two posts so far, and neither contains any Saturn content

And Salesforce CRM is expensive and has nothing to do with saturn cars.

Re: Sl1 vs Sl2 Trim Verication + New Car Gushing

Re: Sl1 vs Sl2 Trim Verication + New Car Gushing

I think some 1st gen SC2 owners put on the front of an SC1 or SL2, to get rid of the pop up headlights? Not sure.

A few 2nd gen SC2 owners didn't like the "sunk" look of the headlights, and put...

Re: Pimpin' the SL

I've used a foaming tire product on other black plastics and it looked nice. Can't say I have ever used in ton a fender liner, though.

Heard good things about Back to Black but never tried it.

Re: Sl1 vs Sl2 Trim Verication + New Car Gushing

Certain years, you can swap the entire body so that a 2nd gen looks like a 3rd gen and vice versa

I'm having a hard time thinking of parts that won't swap between SL1 and SL2.

Visually, IIRC,...
