Re: Serpentine Pulley Questions

Just to add my recent experience to this thread:

Last moth I installed a full Gates Kit that I sourced from Rock Auto - Tensioner, Pulley and belt for system with AC compressor. The price was...

Re: 880 vs 893 Fog Light Bulbs or Something else?

Replaced bulbs. Nothing.

Switch does nothing.

Swapped horn and fog relays. Fog lights on, but won't turn off.
But horn still works.

Swapped Relays back... Same thing. Fogs are now on, but...

Re: Masking Tape for handling HIR bulb for 9011 mod? Necessary?

Cannibalize a glove. Damn, that's a great idea!




I wound up buying a whole round of bulbs for both vehicles from RA, and got a mix of brands to try out some side by side.

Masking Tape for handling HIR bulb for 9011 mod? Necessary?

I'm doing the 9011 9012 Bulb modification and was wondering if it's safe to mask off the bulb with blue painters tape while I cut away with a Dremel.

Anyone know if this will damage bulb?

Or,...

Re: Wheel cylinders

[This was previously some pointless words about wheel bearings.]

Re: 880 vs 893 Fog Light Bulbs or Something else?

Are ALL the stock foglights useless then, even in the 3rd gen? The reflectors and lens look decent to me.

Is that why there's so much talk about mods and higher output bulbs? I thought it was just...

Re: 880 vs 893 Fog Light Bulbs or Something else?

They're all low enough in price at RA that I'll just try out the Hella 880's for now. If they burn out I'll move up.

I'm still not sure I trust any of the LED bulb upgrades for the price. They all...

Idea 880 vs 893 Fog Light Bulbs or Something else?

I drove some very foggy dark mountain roads this past weekend and decided it was time to try new bulbs in the stock SL2 foglights. They've never been operable since the car has been in my possession...

Re: Engine / Transmission Mounts

Not the OP, but I thought I'd give a follow up from my recent mount experience:

My replacement combo was OEM for the trans mount, prothane inserts for both dogbone / torque mounts, and Westar...

Re: Is New O2 Sensor the simple fix for P0442 and P0133 Combo

I'm seeing a mileage improvement so far.

From about 28 or 29mpg, now up to 31mpg in my mixed environment driving. This includes about 30% TERRIBLE bumper to bumper urban crawl and 30% 65 - 70mph...

Re: Is New O2 Sensor the simple fix for P0442 and P0133 Combo

I'd gone over 1200 miles with no new codes. BUT, I finally did get another occurrence of P0442. I'm safely certain then that it's a legit code, that wasn't at all indirectly related to the P0133, and...

Re: Is the seal for THIS in the standard AC gasket kit?

I wasn't aware such a tool existed. That would be a tremendous advantage if I do wind up needing to repair the core. I can't locate anyone who offers them as loaner tools, unfortunately.

I didn't...

Re: Is the seal for THIS in the standard AC gasket kit?

Cleaned everything up and replace the ring over the weekend. The ones I THOUGHT would fit wound up being way too big and the plug wouldn't seat, even with encouragement. I did have a range of sizes...

Re: R134A Refrigerant Capacity Reference

Maybe it depends on the compressor. It sounds like Saturns could have one of a few different makes of "factory" compressor even within the same model year, but I think the capacity may stay the same...

Re: Is the seal for THIS in the standard AC gasket kit?

No success in finding a true metric ring. My friendly LAP store was very helpful, but their best match was a visual guess, and I think it's going to be way to small. I wound up having to spring for a...

Re: Is the seal for THIS in the standard AC gasket kit?

Those tips with sizing will be helpful. I'll see if I can get a few OD sizes and use the largest that works. I don't think there's a groove, i think it's flush until the first step down in diameter,...

Re: Is the seal for THIS in the standard AC gasket kit?

I got the ring out - couldn't manage to get the plug to move at first, but here's what was inside, and what was behind it.

I'd vented both the High and Low sided schrader valves, but there was...

Re: 2002 SL2 fuel economy

Re: Engine / Transmission Mounts

Sooo, yeah, I was working on the wrong side.

Once I cleaned up some more rust, I could see that side was much softer metal and didn't have as much of a lip. The 4 tabs weren't exactly obvious...

Re: Engine / Transmission Mounts

Thanks. I'd missed that tutorial. I'll try working on the flat seam some more before breaking out the dremel now that I know more what I'm working toward.

Re: Engine / Transmission Mounts

I do have the middle one. I'm assuming the rim of the bushing (highlighted some in red below) has to be pried out, that it won't just press. The bracket is pretty rusted and the only place i can find...
