Re: Why does Haynes say do not bleed rear calipers without a scan tool

Yes, and as long as you can get fluid to flow from the rear bleeders the pistons are where they need to be. You can hear the system wind up everytime you start the car and get over 5-7mph, it is that...

Re: How to Replace 96-98 DOHC Plastic Valve Cover With 93-95 Aluminum v. 2

Don't rearrange/recaluculate all the numbers just skip the missing bolt at 6. Just go in sequence a little bit at a time while checking that the gasket does not slide out of place.

Re: Why does Haynes say do not bleed rear calipers without a scan tool

The reason for that requirement relates to the older ABS system that requires homing the pistons if you happen to make a hard stop coming into the service bay or garage. If you make a gentle stop...

Just skip the bolt your aluminum cover does notr have

Plastic cover torque is 89in-lb MAX, but 85in-lb will be fine. You will need a torque wrench that is calibrated in inch-pounds or if you use a...

Re: 98 SC2 project. Drive for now, maybe rebuild later.

Local as the core charge refund gets eaten by shipping. Replacing those rotted lines is a good idea while it is all apart.

Re: Saturn SL2 1999 Timing Chain Replacement

That's good as the larger filter has a lower Dp which increases idle oil pressure to the head area.

Re: Saturn SL2 1999 Timing Chain Replacement

Try that oil and be sure to use THIS FILTER WIX filter 51516XP this will give you room for another 8-12 oz of oil in the engine. Keep the engine full of oil, do not run low.

I don't know where you...

Re: I need some advice on some body work for my car

Re: 98 SC2 project. Drive for now, maybe rebuild later.

The seismic plug wire retainers are not required if using a quality plug wires. The 98 and older engine is an entirely different head design.

The 99 is a true gen-3 design all of this...

Re: Saturn SL2 1999 Timing Chain Replacement

That is a new product and you will have to probably check a NAPA store as they are the usual Valvoline dealer. If you can not find it I can pick another one.

Re: Saturn SL2 1999 Timing Chain Replacement

From the looks of the top end I would suspect some time and good oil will get rid of the lifter bleed down. Keep in mind the hydraulic lifter is a generic GM part and they have redesigned it multiple...

Re: Fuel tank pressure sensor

That is a real possibility but a leaking vent solenoid will do the same thing and it is easier to check. The code indicates the VENT solenoid is not venting. Take it out and verify it will open and...

Re: 98 SC2 project. Drive for now, maybe rebuild later.

Those are the water-oil detraining sections so use RTV to reseal the sides or they quit working. Gunk is normal and not an issue. There is a seal on the 99 as well but probably not as sloppy as the...

Not that you want to use as you will destroy those plastic ducts that must be intact.

Re: In the market for DOHC Aluminum Valve Cover -- 1993 - 1995

That is the going price including all the bolts. They don't leak either.

This is a good gasket set for that cover: Magnum VS25097 Search eBay etc. They are red.
