Re: bad EGR?

Electrical issues at the I/P panel are quite capable of causing every single issue you have experienced. The damage could have been done back in that first 24,000 miles as it usually does not show up...

Re: bad EGR?

No, a plugged filter will just starve the engine for fuel. With the filter changed you should be fine but the Snipe Hunters will be asking for pressure readings soon. You should do the following F-5...

Re: bad EGR?

Take a look at the red wire connected to the engine compartment fuse box and verify it is clean and tight. Do not disconnect the battery, just be careful. You should be able to asses condition...

Re: bad EGR?

By any chance is there an iPhone charger plugged into the cigarette lighter? Does this car have power windows or power locks?

Re: bad EGR?

Have you changed out the TPS? That is the only thing that will force a downshift other than the driver. As you have not managed to reproduce this event tends to point at something other than a...

Re: bad EGR?

No, you go to the JY and start pulling all the matching valves and find a clean one. It is much cheaper.

Used on these vehicles:
CHEVROLET ASTRO 1995
CHEVROLET BLAZER 1995
CHEVROLET S10...

Re: safe disconnect, reset ?

Yes but best to use a good contact cleaner as well.

Re: 2002 Saturn SC1 cylinder head swap

You can put a DOHC head on a SOHC block and skip the PCM swap fire drill. Has no lower crank main bearing support plate so you really do not want to run it real hard.

Re: bad EGR?

You need the valve in place to hold the 2 nickles in place on top of the gasket. Other than that things will be perfectly fine without EGR action forever except for the code 32.

Re: Multiple Misfire

The gen-3 ICM is know to cause that problem all too often. That is why I told you to go find an older one.

Re: bad EGR?

The book is incorrect, it is the electrical coil they are babbling about and there is no way you will get any solvent into that as it is continuously exposed to hot exhaust gasses. Plug it in and...

Re: Multiple Misfire

Yes it does. Go to your local pick and pull and collect the entire module from a 96,97,98, or 99 Saturn, that is both coils, ICM, and the bolts. Aftermarket is just wat too expensive for what you...

Re: bad EGR?

It is the electric EGR being operated by an OBD-1 PCM through a signal converter. That is why you can block BOTH ports if you are careful and 2 nickles will do the job, do not over tighten as the...

Re: bad EGR?

If you want to block it permanently use something heavier than duct work metal or a can. If not careful with a gen-1 you can end up with an exhaust leak or vacuum leak. The exhaust gas will burn...

Re: 5 speed swap no spark

If the ICM is good then the problem is in the connectors, usually the one with the 6X signal. Did I direct you to the gen-1 DIS info in my photo gallery? Car will not start without that 6x signal and...

Re: Switch from 5w30 to 10w30?

The Xw in the product ID has to do with the 32F viscosity and has nothing to do with the normal viscosity at 40C and 100C. The viscosity index gives you a clue as to the viscosity at the normal cold...

Re: Switch from 5w30 to 10w30?

It is not hot enough there to justify any 40 weight oil in these engines. A large percentage of the engine cooling is performed by the oil. Increasing viscosity will increase the internal oil...

Re: Multiple Misfire

The brass strip you can see is a part of the RFI suppression system. If you changed out the entire module and the car runs now then most likely the ICM is what failed. It could also have been an...

Re: Switch from 5w30 to 10w30?

The oil recommendations in any Saturn owners manual is at least 17 years out of date. That renders those recommendations For Information Only.

Re: Compressor pump type

The gray crud is usually aluminum wear particles. Possibly the result of the PAG oil getting wet and becoming an acid to nicely etch the aluminum compressor.

Re: Bolt on hood struts

The McMaster part number CAD info shows only 2 mounting holes and it and the redline part may actually be identical and are functionally identical for sure.

Re: Switch from 5w30 to 10w30?

There is no technical reason to switch to a 10w-30 oil. The cold start and normal running viscosity of either 5w-30 or 10w-30 will be functionally identical. You would be bet off using a good 100%...
