Re: putting new head on 96 SL2

If it were me, I'd go one further and replace the bottom end bearings and the rings... But that's me :D

I would get a chain, the three guides and the tensioner. You can usually get away with...

Re: HELP SES Code 26 and 32 1993 SW2

I'm just going by experience. True the resistance might be in spec when you go to check it, even if it's hot. But what you don't know is the PCM's tolerance for checking that resistance - even...

Re: New engine for 94 SW1...questions.

Unfortunately, your 98 engine will not work either. The head has notches cut out for the fuel injectors (MPFI), and your old manifold does not. Neither gasket will seal properly, as the two sealing...

Re: HELP SES Code 26 and 32 1993 SW2

44 ohms is too high. 26 is a quad driver fault which could be one or more of 8 possible things, however, the egr solenoid and the canister purge solenoid are by far the most common.

Re: Failed California Smog Test

Yes, Infra-Red. They are great for determining cat efficiency. If the cat is the same temp at both ends, it's getting lazy. If it's colder at the outlet, then the bed either isn't up to temp, or...

Re: do our e-brakes even work?

OK, so the consensus is that rear brakes, when adjusted properly, will hold the car, and lock up the rear brakes even when the car is moving.

I concur. S-series rears will lock up nicely when...

Re: Low compression

How many times did you crank the engine over when you did the test? Saturn compression specs call for 10 engine revolutions with the throttle open.

Your readings sound fine for a more typical 4...

Re: ac schrader valve (hi and low)

FYI,

You MUST vacuum the entire system before charging with any refrigerant, r12 or r134a.

By not vacuuming, you are:

1. Not testing the integrity of the system before charging (doesn't...

Re: A/C question

If your car is an S-series, you have a variable displacement compressor, and there was some variation between set-points from the factory.

Assuming you have the exact same amount of charge (that...

Re: '92 Saturn SL2

Re: Basic Engine Operations

The forced induction method increases volume alone. The size of the intake tract determines the speed of the intake charge. Smaller intake increases velocity & larger intake decreases velocity.

Re: A/C Valve Core

Re: Question about downshifting at high speeds

If you are concerned about wear to the tranny, then do some research on "double clutching". It will help you shift in a way that won't cause excess wear on the tranny internals.

Re: idler pulley funky

The only cars out there which had a grooved pulley were SL's with no a/c or P/s. If your car has either of these options, you should run a flat non-grooved pulley.

Re: Auto to manual swap question
