Re: Napa '93-'98 fed downpipe is crap

For what it's worth that part appears to be identical to the Walker version, which means that 99.9% of aftermarket private label parts are going to be the same thing, and therefore similarly crap....

No. Why, at any point in time, are you not running Adblock in your browser?

Re: Where Have All the First Gens Gone?

They're all over the place around here. My area has a fairly high concentration of hoopties, and first (and second!) gen. Saturns feature prominently and in high volume on the local low-rent dealer...

Re: Hood support rod clip: source?

I broke mine a long time ago and just replaced it with a magnet.

Re: Secondary air question

I'm not sure what I'm lookin' at, there. Where the heck did the original mounting studs go? Did homeboy just stick the wrong year exhaust manifold on that thing before you bought it, or what? That...

Re: Got rear-ended, car totaled

I hope you looted every nut, bolt, and screw from your totaled one that would be of value for your new one before you let them get their hooks on it...

How much do they want to salvage it back? It...

Re: Recommendations for aftermarket security systems?

"Crapload of noise" is not an effective security tactic. When you hear a car alarm go off - especially the dopey distinctive sound of an aftermarket system -- your first thought is not "some ruffian...

Re: Backlit Shift Knob

They sell battery powered ones in the riceboy aisle of your local auto parts place. I don't think jury-rigging one with some resistors to safely run at 12v would be too difficult -- at least after...

Re: tailpipe hanger rusted

You can get clamp-on "fix it" hangers that may or may not work for you. You can play with them at your local auto parts place and see if you can find one that looks as if it's the right shape. The...

Re: Post Up Your Wheel/Tire Setup!

My Altimaxes are a size shorter and a side wider than factory on the "aspect ratio" meter. That probably reduces my ground clearance 0.02% and changes my spedometer to match, but I have yet to have...

Re: Post Up Your Wheel/Tire Setup!

Finally, I found someone who shares my point of view.

Everything in my (extended) stable of vehicles is riding on steelies. When I got my SL2 it had aftermarket wheel covers on it and currently...

Re: Why can't I get any Saturn mechanic recommendations on this forum?

...The other reason you probably don't get many mechanic recommendations here is because none of us know. All of us knuckleheads fix our Saturns ourselves.

Re: Differneces in S series generations? Better than others?

Pretty sure the GM Ecotec engines are belt driven. I could be proven wrong and can't be bothered to look it up, though. The S-Series engines are chain, obviously.

Everybody else, especially in...

Re: plastic doors?

To be specific, all of the horizontal surfaces are metal. The vertical portion of the trunk lid is plastic as well. So, pretty much anywhere you'd want to stick a magnet you can't. On the plus side,...

Re: 2002 radio wiring

Insofar as I am aware, the stock radio I ripped out of mine (2002, single CD player) just just a straight up stereo that doesn't talk to anything else other than the speakers. To wit: I can power it...

Re: Someone almost hit me!

Ditto to pretty much all of the above.

They recently installed new traffic lights in front of my restaurant that give red arrows to left-turning traffic coming off the main drag, and later gives...

Re: Why do people like Saturns?

Digression: I win.

I once goaded a moron in an Acura crossover-somethingorother into eating ditch during an ice storm. Sort of. I was going "too slow" (read: a speed at which I would not crash)...

Re: Why do people like Saturns?

Re: tire recommendations?

I have General Altimax R/T's on mine. I work delivery in my Saturn in all kinds of asinine weather conditions. They do not lose grip around corners or in the rain. Or even around corners and in the...

Re: Name that Part: in the trunk

I second making your own. Mine is a bit saggy due to moisture exposure, and so are all the ones I've seen at junkyards -- especially when they're left with their trunk lids open for...

Re: Anyone used a Video Recorder Black Box?

The kicker, of course, is that the cops are too chicken(beep) to enforce existing traffic laws that are not speeding or DUI. Therefore, people start growing an attitude that they are "entitled" to do...

Re: Anyone used a Video Recorder Black Box?

I keep one in my car when I'm working delivery. Mine faces forwards; If a driver hits me from behind it is "automatically" their fault in this state. The forward facing camera is more useful because...

Re: Saturn SWx versus Ford Focus Wagon

They are not. I owned one, as did my dad. Both cars turned out to be fallapart specials -- He bought his new (2001) and I bought mine used (2004), I managed to keep mine together for about a year and...
