Re: Rear Disc conversion

Yes. The overall braking system does improve in both response and efficiency, when using disc brakes. Drum braking systems are less problematic and tend to suffer from more brake fade as a trade...

Re: How bad is this rust?

My 1995 SC is rusted in similar areas. I used POR-15 on them, to nprevent further rust. It doesn't look too bad, as of yet. POR-15 should run about $40/quart. It has to be warm, to apply it, and kept...

Re: Curious? Anyone ever put an Ecotec into an SL Saturn?

What seems like an easy idea, is not always going to be the best idea. Those Eco-Techs are notorious for cracked blocks on the Turbo/Supercharged variants, and can be verified via most internet...

Re: 2002 SL2 Slamming In All Gears

Codes for incorrect ratio can be indicative of slipping clutches, which causes the gear to spin at a speed outside of the PCM set parameters. Since you have reverse slam and 3-4 only, and 2-1, I...

Re: Driving on Ice

I drove a Fiero, for a full winter, with only rear brakes. They aren't too bad in the winter, because the engine is over the drive wheels.

That being said, when driving in slippery conditions,...

Re: New Saturn parts car i guess

Are you referring to just the bottom end, in this statement?


If so, will a 2000-2002 bottom end swap into a 1995?

Re: Engine flooding when cold.

Try changing to a hotter plug. E3 Diamond Fire plugs work well, but will foul quickly IF you are burning excessive oil.

We have had unseasonably low temps, in Ohio, this year. it is only 13F...

Re: 2002 SL2 Slamming In All Gears

Transmission Fluid Service Change Interval is 30-months/30,000 miles, whichever occurs first. If you have gone 5+ years. without changing the fluid, this will be the first thing you want to do.

Re: 95 Sl2

The dash and interior of 1995 model years can be 2nd Gen, even in the SL models. I have seen at least one 1995 SL1, that had the 2nd Gen interior as my 1995 SC2. Be mindful of this, when comparing...

Does Pennsylvania allow you to rebuild vehicles on a salvage title, similar to Ohio?

Re: Failing thermostat or ECTS?

Same here. When I purchased my SC2, they were the first two things I replaced and fresh antifreeze. Using 50/50 GREEN will ensure that you are not replacing a cylinder head gasket in your near...

Re: Speakers/ Amp

Aftermarket radios have pre-amp output wiring, that the factory deck is NOT going to have in its wiring. So, to keep the head stock, you will likely want to follow Fetch's suggestion.

Re: OK, whose SC2 is that on "Fresh Off the Boat"?

Well, looking at the tail lights, it is a 1991-1994 model year. Gorgeous car. Same wheels as my '95 has.

Re: Heater return pipe leak

This happened with my 1984 Fiero, under the battery tray. I hacksawed a small section of the line out, and spliced a rubber hose in. The cooling system will rarely exceed 18psi, so you don't need...

Re: 1998 Saturn SW2 won't start

My Saturn hasn't seen that low, yet, either. -17F has been the lowest, for me, and it has required double cranks. I suspect when the plugs are fouled up with oil, and your valves leak, this would be...

Re: Alternator recommendation

Remy was an original GM supplier, from the 1970s & 1980s. They were partnered with Delco as many GM alternators from that era were cast "Delco-Remy" on the cases. Not sure why there would be such a...

Re: Transmission or other?

P0137 & P0302 are both related to air/fuel ratio, so you may need to replace the O2 sensor in your manifold. GM OBD-II systems(1996-2002 Saturn S-Series) do NOT use the catalytic converter O2 sensor...

Re: One Headlight Out???

Check the plug assembly and harness. You may have a broken wire. The harness should have a plug, to it, near the radiator. If the pigtail needs to be replaced, you can use this website to find a...

Re: MP7 trans leaking

The most common failure, from age, is the tank on the driver's side. The plastic will eventually crack, right where the upper radiator hose attaches, causing a small leak that eventually gets worse. ...

Re: MP7 trans leaking

If you decide to replace the cooling lines, make sure you get ACDelco replacement lines. There are two part numbers: 21031307 & 21031306

Since I had done both my lines, at the same time, I do not...

Re: Failing thermostat or ECTS?

There are a variety of sensors, that affect air/fuel ratio, BUT the ECTS is the primary sensor used. Reason for this: atomization

Fuel doesn't burn in liquid state, only in vapor(gaseous) state,...
