This scares me, and I'm fearless.

Re: 97 SW2 Manual RPM's rev up while Hwy driving in 5th gear.

I'm about to do it. As always I'll document the process.

Re: 99 SL2 rebuild thread

Thanks Mark!
My new, stock LUK clutch came in the mail today. I'll be glad to be rid of the stage 2 clutch.

Spam on the tech thread

Boy we got slammed bad on the tech thread. Makes me mad. A few weeks ago I PM'ed Charlie and offered to moderate. If anybody knows him personally maybe make that offer. We have to get rid of the...

Re: Brake issues..

I'd go back and insist they replace the whole line, assuming you trust them to do the job. Or, make a YouTube video and warn others.

Re: 93 SL2 Master cylinder port sizes.

Awesome. I always thread brake lines in by hand. Easy to get them cross threaded if the lines are bent off a little bit. Keep tweaking the brake lines until you can run the nuts home by hand. Leave...

Re: Brake issues..

I bet they spliced. That is criminal for what they charged you. I would find a new garage.

Re: 93 SL2 Master cylinder port sizes.

Rock Auto has a closeout for $23.84 including reservoir. How do you tap it without damaging the seal in the MC or contaminating it with chips?

I vote new or junkyard MC. $17 at LKQ.

Re: Brake issues..

Definitely seems high. It is less than $50 worth of parts to replace all 4 hard lines. I've done it a few times. I am not surprised that the lines have rusted and failed.

I'd remove the fender and fiberglass it from the other side.

I don't totally disagree with you fdryer. If you are paying someone to do the work, a new car will win out sooner or later. I'm personally less concerned with datlas and his wife than my own kids,...

Re: Annual Angst

Amen! I just bought $250 worth of parts for the '99 and will need to spend another $100 for alignment when we are done. Money well spent!

Re: Rear drum backing plate swap (what years fit)

I know of no way to search one thread. Of course we are interested - this sort of thing is why we are here! Backing plates on my '98 are trash.

Re: Rebuilding 96 dohc

Three holes per side is way better than zero. Seems good to me.

My machine shop evaluated my crank, bore, deck, and head. My crank was not turned down, I just got new bearings. My bores had taper...

Re: Rebuilding 96 dohc

I think Lowe's Depot still sells MEK. Besides being death on a Ritz, it is a very good solvent.

Re: Rebuilding 96 dohc

Chris,
Do a little searching on the forum. The short of it is the oil is able to drain back into the engine rather than coking up an immobilizing the rings. That is what causes saturns to use oil. ...

Re: Rebuilding 96 dohc

Nice! Are you going to drill holes in the oil control ring slot?

Edit: new pistons are nice too.
