Re: Cranks but won't start

Is this a factory engine block heater or aftermarket item? When was the last time it was used and worked?

Re: Water leakage into my trunk

If you sealed the suspected area and water still leaks in then look elsewhere. The leak is coming in somewhere else. There's no point in beating a dead horse unless the sealant doesn't work. It works...

Re: Water leakage into my trunk

Uhh, if you found the leak at the spots pointed out in your pics, then siliconing those spots may be a simple solution instead of taking things apart. Obviously there are many ways to repairs and no...

Re: 2003 Ion starting then immediately stalling

Re: Water leakage into my trunk

Sometimes leaks aren't where you expect it. Did you use a mechanics mirror and droplight to look into all the suspected places right after a rain? One way to locate leaks would be crawling into the...

Re: No start. No spark

With a new ignition system, new spark plugs and a flooded engine, the engine may still be flooded. Even new plugs will drown in fuel, shorting out spark. Every year there's a member or two reporting...

Re: 2001 L200, how to program new keyless remote

There's a difference between resynching a remote already programmed to the body control module and attempting to add a new remote without access to the bcm. To add a new remote requires GM's Tech II...

Hearsay is great if it relates to a specific vehicle. If you choose to use hearsay that doesn't specifically point to your car then it's useless. As far as Saturn vehicles and their EFI systems; no...
