Re: Spare tire

Wow, talk about an old thread....

The Saturn is long gone, but I now work at an auto auction and see this a lot, especially with the Firestone compact spares. Not sure if it has to do with the...

Re: Where is Recirculation Motor Located?

If I recall correctly, I had to remove the blower motor to access the blend door. The motor is under the dash and has three or four screws holding it in place. Other than being awkward to get to it...

Re: Spare tire

I looked a little closer and the tire had been used, or the wheel had at least been bolted on, but it looks like very little since the casting rib around the center wasn't even worn off.

It wasn't...

Spare tire

Was doing some cleaning of the interior today, and figured I'd check the spare while I was at it. Found this:

Re: Fuel pump testing

fdryer - Thanks for confirming what I figured...bad pump. Would this have anything to do with the low power, or is that a different cause? I've replaced the plugs, wires, ECTS and connector, TPS,...

Wrench Fuel pump testing

I have a '97 SW1 with 121k miles. Ever since I bought it, the power has been low (MUCH lower than my parents' SL2 - more than their DOHC engine would account for). It is also hard to start most of...

Re: Flashing coolant temp/trans temp/low coolant lights

Well, the jumper was making good contact, so I did what I should have done first: checked the backup light fuse. It was blown.:upset: Replaced the trans and ECTS sensors, wasted nearly three...

Re: Flashing coolant temp/trans temp/low coolant lights

Thanks - I'll redo the jumper just in case it's not making good contact. If that doesn't work I guess I'll just keep driving it....

Mad Flashing coolant temp/trans temp/low coolant lights

Re: Gas Mileage (yes, again, for SOHC engines)

I've been getting 27-29 MPG (one tank as low as 25), mostly freeway...but lots of really slow traffic thanks to construction. When I was driving mostly in town with lots of traffic lights I was...

Re: Shifter (Auto) - 95 SL1

The slit is on the front side of the shifter handle (just below the "T" portion). A small flat blade screwdriver will work to pry the clip out, and you can then lift the handle off. Installation is...

Re: Shifter (Auto) - 95 SL1

If the '95 shifter is the same as the '97, there is a spring clip that needs to be pried out of the front edge of the shifter handle (look for a small, thin slit). Once the clip is out the handle...

Some of the "flush" methods used by the quickie lube places can actually harm your transmission by forcing debris back through the transmission. A friend, who owned a tranny shop, showed me the...

Re: saturnparts.com vs saturnparts.net

I've ordered from saturnparts.net a few times. The shipping was a little slow last time, but I'm guessing that is because they didn't have the part (AC blend door actuator) in stock at the time of...

Re: Where is Recirculation Motor Located?

Actually, the door just flops back and forth - no spring loading. I actually moved it by hand to the recirculating position during the summer so the car would stay cooler.

Re: Where is Recirculation Motor Located?

If it is the same thing I think you're talking about, it's a square/traingle shaped (square on the bottom end, with a triangle top;)) module that moves the fresh air/recirculation door, and it is on...

Re: 97 sl2 operating temp gauge

I guess I must be one of the few that actually DID notice a difference switching from 87 to 91 octane. My '97 SW1 was basically undriveable due to lack of power with the AC on 87 octane during the...

Re: 97 sl2 operating temp gauge

My '97 SW1 runs just under 1/2 on the temp gauge under most driving conditions.

Re: Help! Cant remove brake line!

If the socket doesn't work, and that is your best shot, you're going to need to use vice grips. You'll need to clamp them on what is left of the nut VERY TIGHTLY before you try to turn it!
