Re: Another one bites the dust

I would almost agree with you ;) but not really. As noted in my reply to Madpogue, we already have a 96 lined up for my wife. But I know that car. I know when it was purchased, I know the owner...

Re: Another one bites the dust

Good suggestions but the front end parts from the sedan wouldn't be usable. When she hit the pole, she hit it dead center pushing the radiator all the way back to the engine so it's radiator support...

Re: P0341 trouble code

Ok, I checked the routing and I did not have 1 and 4 next to each other after leaving the coil pack. I rearanged them and they are now next to each other in all the stand offs. I'll wait and see if...

Re: P0341 trouble code

When you say "very close", I presume you mean that they are physically close, all the way from the coil packs to where they would separate to go to their respective plugs? So I take it that they...

Re: Cylinder #3 very low compression. Please advise on options. New car time?

I could describe a process to determine if it is valves or rings but with the oil consumption you report, and the fact these engines are known to have an issue with oil control rings AND very little...

Re: life of timing chain

I agree with the first two responses. I have changed 2 timing chains on twin cam S Series cars with the engine in the car. It is tedious. But as previously stated, they are designed to last the...

Re: RKE has developed a mind of it's own

Do you know how to tell when that change was made? Since the car I am having trouble with is a 99, I may be out of luck in the reprogramming.

Re: RKE has developed a mind of it's own

So you think the module is loosing touch with reality? I have been thinking along that line. A replacement module would require pairing the fobs right?

Re: RKE has developed a mind of it's own

Yup, I did it exactly as described. After I hold the lock and unlock buttons, I get the one horn chirp confirming mode 1. A subsequent test confirms the reset. But when I come back to the car...

RKE has developed a mind of it's own

On my 99 SC-2 I have been experiencing some problems with the RKE/security system.

I have become quite good at resetting the mode and operation of my RKE system. Of late, it has started giving me...

Re: Goodbye Saturn: Thanks for the Ride (1985-2010)

While a bit late in seeing this entry from Charlie, I too must add my thanks for one of the best forums on the internet. Many others often have "members" who are rude and very critical of new people...

Re: Best Air Filter for DOHC?

That is how I have done it since I put a K&N in my 99 SC-2. I, however plan to go back to a paper filter. I figured I would keep the K&N long enough to pay for itself by not having to purchase the...

Re: Cooling Fan Activation & Oil "burn"

I cut and pasted this from a post I made a couple of years ago. But if you are new to the "S" series cars, it may be helpful and may ease you mind in regards to what you see on your temp gauge.

Re: Cooling Fan Activation & Oil "burn"

Your temp gauge is not marked with actual temps. The fan "ON" temp is approximately 221 deg F. Most people, including me, experience "normal" operating temps as indicated, while moving down the...

Re: Squeaky Clutch, bad gas mileage

Thanks for the input about the clutch. As for the oldest profession, no comment. But another thing that makes Lost Wages more inhabitable is the fact that right now, according to the National...

Squeaky Clutch, bad gas mileage

Re: Rear shelf cover

Thanks for the input. However the cover wasn't as well stuck as I anticipated. Once I made the cut on the outline I traced, the backing came off pretty easily. Could be due to the age and being in...
