2005 Hyundai Elantra GT. Great condition. This is the GF's car and she loves it. We both purchased our first SL2's about 6 years ago. Then I owned Toyotas, and currently have a 05 Accord V6 coupe

Re: Taking a break from Saturn

I'm not against owning one again in the future. I've always liked how easy they are to work on, and how inexpensive the parts are. It was just time for a change right now, to bigger and better things...

Taking a break from Saturn

Well, the time came to make a change. We sold our 2000 SL2 recently and purchased a slightly newer import. The Saturn started to have little annoying issues. There was also the low fuel economy thing...

Re: Poor fuel mileage

I have the same exact problem which I made a thread about recently. No driveability issues, no codes, a bunch of parts changed. MPG in the low 20s

The only thing different that I noticed on the...

Re: ac questions

About 40 - 55 degrees on these cars is probably normal

All the ones we've owned have had good working A/C. On a hot day at the vents they've read about 55 at idle, 50 during stop and go traffic,...

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

Compression test results, done with the Injector fuse and plugs removed, engine warm, and throttle open. Did not do a wet test. I also only let the engine turn about 5 times, but I think cranking it...

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

I will reset the computer later today. Now that a new fuel filter was installed and the tank has treatment in it, I connected the scanner today and noticed STFT were mostly in the single digits even...

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

The needle position is at 1/4 when the ECTS is reading about 150*, and in the middle when its reading about 210*, which is normal from what I have read on here.

I also noticed that on...

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

Can anyone verify if the readings from the second O2 are normal? From what I've been reading, and connecting the scanner to another car, the second O2 sensor should barely be changing, or should be...

Re: Mileage Down To 23 MPG from 36 MPG!!!

I'm also trying to figure out a low MPG issue. Will replace the fuel filter, then possibly a compression test if there's no improvement. What has be baffled is that the engine still runs strong with...

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

Got under the car yesterday and loosened the line at the filter, so a few drops of fuel came out. Instead of being clear, the liquid was brown.

Re: Poor gas mileage. What else to check

Thanks. The plugs are NGK, tire pressures and PCV valve are ok, EGR valve and coil towers are clean. Tomorrow I'll change the fuel filter, put in some FI cleaner, and do a compression test.

Poor gas mileage. What else to check

Ever since last year we've noticed the gas mileage slowly dropping on the SL2. Its now getting around 21-22 MPG in city driving and no heavy foot. I calculate it by dividing the miles per tank by the...

Squeaking from inner CV joint area

Re: Horn question

Noticed today the horn is working intermittently. The relay clicks all the time, but the horn only goes off sometimes. Guess I'll buy a cheap used horn and see if that fixes it.
