Re: Would this be enough to keep the engine stable while replacing crossmember/subfra

Yea, way more than enough. However use your HarborFreight coupon for the support fixture. It straddles the upper frame (top of the fenders) and supports the engine.

Re: Smoke when taking off from stop light

I never had any luck with MMO. I suspect it works when the build up is very light.
I've read some online who claim success with coca-cola.

There was a guy on here who had great success with B-12....

Re: Smoke when taking off from stop light

Yep. Piston soak may help. Otherwise just get used to adding a lot of oil.

Re: S-Series Motor Mounts - Optimized order of replacement

I think its easier to do the lower mount with the dogbones left in. As you lower the car the tranny moves right back into place to align the mount. Otherwise you have to muscle it around a bit.

Re: Wrench inside outline of car icon on cluster?

No. Ignition on.

Another super common cause for the service light is if the mil lamp is burnt out.

Re: Which rebuild kit to get SC2

Check out LKQ too. I bought an engine from them for $800 and have about 100,000 on it now. Runs through a quart about every 2,000 miles which isn't too far from factory original :)

Re: Which rebuild kit to get SC2

I saw your pictures. What the heck did you do? Looks like you grafted the tail of a V tail Bo on the body of a Cherokee.

Was this the car you lost your virginity in? Its much cheaper to just junk it and get another Saturn with less miles. :)

Re: Can a 1996 SL2 be started immediately after airbags are deployed

Yes, I believe the fuel pump is disabled when the airbags go off. You should be able to turn the car off, remove the key and then start it.

Re: 2007 Vue remote self programmable?

I think the VCX Nano is just a different version of what I have. Its just a MDI interface and you run Tech2Win on your PC, which is exactly what the dealers do. Not sure too many dealers still have...

Re: Starter Motor Brands and New vs Reman

Re: Starter Motor Brands and New vs Reman

Why do you hit the starter? You should be able to just turn the key to run to prime the fuel.

Re: Ignition Lock Cylinder WIll Not Turn

This is why you want to replace your key every few years and keep a virgin key to make copies from. As the key wears it rubs away on the pins which eventually jam. A little graphite lube helps too....
