Re: lots of smoke/burning smell!

Thanks.. I have made it a point to check the oil levels more often. The smell is still there and somewhat noticeable. Took it into the shop where I had the oil changed and the mechanics found nothing...

Re: lots of smoke/burning smell!

Hello,

I experienced a similar problem the other day with my 2000 SL1. I had plans to go out of town and I made a point to get my oil changed before going. Since Saturns are notorious for burning...

Re: Planning on changing water pump/gasket and thermostat in the near future

That's what I figured.. friend told me the same thing.

About how long do you think it would take an amateur mechanic like myself to change the water pump/gasket and thermostat?

Re: Coolant leak. 2000 SL1

Topped the coolant level off and the car is up and running. Still haven't diagnosed the leak, but when driving there is an occasional "waterfall" sound which is connected to the coolant leak.

Re: Coolant leak. 2000 SL1

The coolant level still looks the same as it did an hour and a half ago. I haven't yet had the chance to drive it around because the battery needs a jump and no one else is home to help me jump start...

Re: Coolant leak. 2000 SL1

1. Not likely because the radiator is at the front of the vehicle; this leak is closer to the RF tire/wheel well area.
2. Possible, although I just installed a brand new tensioner and serpentine...

Re: SL1 ticking sound in engine

Yes to the first question, the ticking goes away completely for awhile until shortly before I get the oil changed. As to the second question, the ticking persists even at low RPM, but the high RPM...

Re: SL1 ticking sound in engine

As of right now it only really does it when I brake and accelerate, then it goes away. The last time I got the oil changed it was Valvoline Maxlife 5W-30.
