Re: 2.4 timing chain replacement

This engine is a bored and stroked version of our ECOTOC 2.2L engines. It uses the same timing chain, all three chain guides, crankshaft gear, timing cover gasket, crankshaft front seal, crankshaft...

Re: Removing knuckle, need socket sizes

The large majority of bolt and nut hex sizes for suspension parts under our L's are indeed 18mm. I can't recall the hex size for the tie rod ends nor the ball joints although I've worked on both in...

Re: 20 years later an A/C component fails

After much down time away from the compressor clutch issue I decided to purchase a simple hand held U/V black-light and check for the presence of the tell-tale dye around A/C components under the...

Re: 20 years later an A/C component fails

Thank you for the kind offer, BrandonKastning, I do appreciate it. If the AllData information includes an "on car" replacement of the A/C compressor clutch or shows a manner of removal that doesn't...

Re: advice on l200 2.2 timing chain fix

It's possible that Dorman may have such a bolt since the L61 (2.2L ECOTEC) engine timing components were quite common. However, you may be able to get these bolts more quickly by purchasing them...

Re: the old mode actuator trick in the hvac

I apologize for the delayed reply, rfisher. I've been putting out "fires" here at home which have been consuming much of my free time after work hours are done. With regard to sending R&R information...

Re: Saturn L300 power window switch Driver side

FWIW, Russet, I believe that floridasl22002's analysis is very reasonable. So I tend to agree that the problem isn't with the switch, but is instead inside of the driver's door.

Re: the old mode actuator trick in the hvac

The part you're looking for went obsolete/NLA several years ago. If you're up for a self-serve wrecking yard and removing the part from a wrecking yard car yourself then go to...

Re: the old water pump r and r trick on a 2.2 4cyl

rfisher, I don't find this job to be especially difficult - I find it to be time consuming. (Of course, you'll want to work on this with the engine as cool as possible.) If you're more efficient than...

Re: 20 years later an A/C component fails

Thank you for the reply, 02 LW300. I expect that one needs to be on their feet in order apply enough strength and leverage to remove the clutch from the compressor while it remains mounted on the...

Re: Plastic splash shield

Re: advice on l200 2.2 timing chain fix

I agree with 02 LW300 regarding the Cloyes brand timing chain and balance shaft chain kits. Cloyes is most definitely the factory supplier of these parts for the ECOTEC 2.2L engines and they're a...

20 years later an A/C component fails

Several weeks ago I did a simple test of my A/C system with my automotive thermometer. I found that the air temperature at the center vents was at 40 degrees f (full cold and high fan speed). Great!...

Re: New Spark Plugs - Car Won't Start

Although you're not asking me, I would agree that the new coil pack was defective. Your comments above, along with those in posts 9 & 11, would be pointing in that direction.

I'm curious as to...

Re: the old sparkplug trick revisited

The "plate" you're referring to is part of the whole coil pack. While I'm really surprised at how large the gap had become on your old spark plugs the resulting engine miss due to that occurrence is...

Re: Saturn l300 v6 won't run

Welcome to SaturnFans, theBold!So the car moves in reverse and forward gears, but very slowly. If you try to accelerate will there be an increase in RPM without a correlating increase in speed?

You are correct about the steel brake lines using metric bubble flare nuts. However, there are two types in this style: German and Japanese and they're not interchangeable. The Saturn L-Series cars...

Re: 2001 Saturn L300 - v6 3.0 Liter - Rear Brake Pad Swap (Special Tool Needed) ?
