UPDATE: Regarding Ignition Lock Cylinder Removal on 2000 SL

Tried turning the key in the ignition today. It turned. Perhaps sitting 3 days letting the Zepp soak in helped loosen them. Sprayed more Zepp in key slot. I've been stranded for 4 days. I probably...

Re: ECTS change, yet the problem persists

Brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner are good. You might use an old toothbrush or smaller brush to scrub inside the cavities, too.

Re: Rough idle and random high idle

air/smog pump? Do you mean the opposite end of the plenum from the throttle body? At the passenger side of the plenum is the MAP sensor. There's an electrical connection and a vacuum hose.

Re: Random miss at idle

I wonder if your problem is similar to mine. The coolant temperature sensor?

Re: How I installed an LED dome and trunk light cheap

Nice mattwithcats. I've been wanting to change as many incandescent lights with LED's as possible. Wish this technology was available when our cars were manufactured, though.

Re: 1993 Saturn problems. Fan ect
