Re: HVAC blower motor issues

I have a bunch of small flat-head screwdrivers, so I file one down really narrow to fit inside that small opening above the pin opening on the connecting (not wire) side of the 68-pin connector. I...

Re: HVAC blower motor issues

Hey, guess what, I did it again. In the middle of a crazy downpour so I couldn't put my windows down. It got real warm and foggy in my car really fast.

So how do I bypass that junction block...

Re: HVAC blower motor issues

Didn't even have to take the spade connector out of the 68-pin connector housing. Just scraped the black goop off with a flat blade jeweler's screwdriver, and did the same on both sides of the male...

Re: HVAC blower motor issues

Ohhh right, I've actually done spade connectors like this on my bike before, didn't occur to me. Sweet. Well I'll report back when I get this done, and in the meantime the interior of my car is...

Re: HVAC blower motor issues

Thanks for the pictures. This appears that it will be pretty hard to do with the connector still in the car...I imagine as soon as I take that blue lock doodad out, all the wires that it holds in...

Re: HVAC blower motor issues

I'll explain this in detail in case someone else runs into this problem. Pulled center console and lower kick panels out to access the back of the fuse panel. Tried getting voltage across F2 and E1...

HVAC blower motor issues

I searched for this, couldn't find anything definitive. 2000 SL2, blower motor stopped working. I have 12.05 volts at the connector that plugs into the motor, but both the existing motor and a brand...

Re: Clutch slipping on downshifts

Ok, I will siphon some of the trans fluid out, it's above the halfway mark, it's most of the way up the crosshatch. I just figured it was like oil, try to keep the level as close to full as...

Clutch slipping on downshifts

Hello all. I have a 2000 SL2 with 186K on it. The clutch is slipping when I downshift only, most often when I go for 4th on the highway to to pass someone or getting off an offramp. I double...

Part number for a cooling system hose

I'm looking for a part number for the hose that runs from the coolant inlet underneath the thermostat to the hard line that then connects to the coolant reservoir. Rock Auto only lists the big upper...

Re: Looking for a SWP postal wagon,

Expect inflated prices, because they are Saturns underneath, and can therefore drive forever with little maintenance. Also expect them to be tragically neglected, because everyone knows they're...

Re: Why do I warp brake rotors so quickly?

Periodically? 1,500 miles is periodically? Well, ok.

And you may remember a certain member of this forum who used to be pretty up on the repair thing used to extol the virtues of cheap rotors.

Re: Why do I warp brake rotors so quickly?

Great, hubs. Because I didn't just spend tons of time and money replacing struts and strut mounts and control arms and tie rod ends and an alignment and had all that stuff apart anyway. If I have...

Why do I warp brake rotors so quickly?

2000 SL2, manual, 155K miles. Car eats brake rotors. After about 3K miles, it starts stopping unevenly- a "pulsing" felt through the brake pedal, and the car rocks front to back slightly instead of...

Re: Struts & Springs

Most struts come with new "top nuts." (Ha, that sounds funny.) Most do not come with the washer that goes right below that nut, so that will be reused from your original parts. It's a dished...

Re: Shifter knob removal on a '99 SL

Take a long section of pipe, place it on the floor of the driver's footwell, or the driver's seat. Line up the pipe so it goes right by the shift knob. Wrap the two together with lots of duct tape....

Re: Considering an '01 SC2 Automatic

Pretty sure that's a rare car, only a few thousand of those yellow '01 SC2s were made. The price is a little high than I'm used to seeing, but I haven't seen many 56K mile S-series lately, so that...

Re: Readiness monitors not set...after 12,000 miles

I did replace that front sensor before. I had to solder the wire to the old connector, but I've been soldering practically since before I could walk, I doubt it's the connection. Perhaps it is the...

Re: Readiness monitors not set...after 12,000 miles

I bought an OBD-II scan tool. Very clever. Here are the current state of the readiness monitors on my car, this was with the car running, after about an hour of mixed highway/city driving:

Re: Readiness monitors not set...after 12,000 miles

Thanks for the input. The coolant temp. sensor is less than a year old, and the thermostat was replaced at about 100,000 miles. Is 50,000 a short enough interval for those to fail? I replaced it...

Re: Dissapointed that Saturns are being junked for blown head gaskets

Is that serious? [/Jake Blues]

I've often thought about renting a garage, buying an engine lift, and flipping (buying ones with only slightly ruined engines, fixing, and selling) Saturns. I've...

Readiness monitors not set...after 12,000 miles

Once again, the time has come for my car (a 2000 SL2) to pass the Soviet Republic of Pennsylvania's emissions test. They plug the car into a computer, and if there are any codes, it fails. Only...

Re: After that ridiculous A/C rebuild, it still doesn't work!!!

1. I'll get a set of high/low gauges and check some pressures
2. I pushed all the solvent out with compressed air. I was pretty thorough.
3. The TXV wasn't that hard to get to, I have insane...

Hmmm. Well, that's just silly. Here's my problem with spending more money to fix this myself...if I keep screwing things up, wouldn't it just make more sense to take it to a shop where it will get...
