Re: Loose transmission filter

I have owned quite a few Saturns with automatic transmissions. I initially had issues with the trans filter loosening up especially when I serviced my first auto trans. Some people will cringe at...

Re: Piston Ring Cleaning

I've tried soaking using MMO without success. The oil swipper rings get so locked up that I've had to pry them out. I don't think any amount of soaking in the block would have freed up the rings...

Re: Threw a Rod on My 1994 SL1 L4 1.9 TBI SOHC

Rjm60 - Sorry, to far away. I've rebuilt a bunch of these and have a few spares. I've bought entire engines for $100. I've even had a few donated to me. You should be able to get a doner engine...

Re: Threw a Rod on My 1994 SL1 L4 1.9 TBI SOHC

Rjm60 - Roughly where do you live. I have a block all honed out and ready to build out. Standard bore. Is your current crank still good? Have you built one of these engines before? Send me a PM.

Re: 2000 Saturn SL - Front Wheel Bearing Replacement

I have a large socket set (one inch drive) and I just hunt through it and find one that works. If you don't have that just find anything of the correct diameter. For some bearings I have found...

Re: P0014 code

As previously stated in this post I had the P0014 code and replaced both of the cam position sensors. After doing this I still had the problem. The code would come and go which made me believe the...

Re: P0014 code

For all those reading this post and thinking of replacing the cam position sensor, there are two of them. One for each cam. They are located toward the top of the engine on the drivers side. One...

Re: Car won't start after getting gas

The part only cost $23 and it will only take 15 minutes to install. What do you have to loose other than $23. Let us know how it works out.

Re: 2006 ION2 Idle Problem

Just a follow up on my supposed throttle body going bad. As I stated before I replaced the throttle body and it seemed to fix the high idle problem. Well, after driving it a little, the high idle...

Re: 2006 ION2 Idle Problem - FIXED

I had already tried a new gasket and that didn't help. My daughter drove it for a few days but the idle was still up at 1580.

I resolved the problem by putting in a different throttle body from...

Re: doing the wheel bearing

You have to take the tie rod going to the power steering rack off in order to get the CV shaft out before you can use the tool.

Personally I find it much easier to just take the steering knuckle...

2006 ION2 Idle Problem

2006 ION2 2.2L Std. 180K miles. Current problem is the idle is around 1580 rpm after cleaning the throttle body.

The SES light was on with many codes so I went about doing the normal things. ...

Re: Oil in coolant reservoir

Another quick way to check is to pop the water pump off. You will likely find it also looks like a chocolate shake which only means one thing, a cracked head. You can purchase a complete head ready...

Re: Engine/Trans mounts questions

Most vehicles have a bump out in the frame where the dogbone attaches.

Check out the pics in the following URL and you will see how the 1995 SC2 frame looks. Look toward the end where the engine...

Re: doing the wheel bearing

It could be done on a press but you would need to build a jig to hold everything so that you could use the press.

Granted I probably have more toys than most people so it is a bit easier for me. ...

Re: 2000 Saturn SL - Front Wheel Bearing Replacement

You can just take a soft blow hammer or a 2x4 with a hammer and hit the back of the hub and it will come out.

A 6 ton press may work but in my personal opinion I would recommend at least a 12 ton....

Re: Rod Bearing - 02 SL2 1.9L Automatic

Torque to spec. I have never used Loctite on rod bolts.

Re: Dry-Torquing the DOHC!

As stated above, use the new bolts.

Re: Cylinder Head Pictures

I think I've rebuilt too many of these. I'm starting to forget the details of the various engines.

If the top of the block has a little discoloration but is smooth you are good to go. Run your...

Re: Cylinder Head Pictures

Also, take a scotch brite and some Purple Power to the top of the block. It will clean right up. You just need to use a little elbow grease. You can also wet sand it with 600 grit wet sanding...

Re: Cylinder Head Pictures

Did you number the pistons as to which cylinder they came out of? Matching which cylinder they came out of is not as critical but I always try and put them back in the cylinder they came out of.

Re: Cylinder Head Pictures

I use Purple Power to clean most of my engine parts. Just put it in a pan and use a small nylon bristle brush to clean the parts. Wear those thick Playtex gloves you buy at the grocery store. I...

Re: Cylinder Head Pictures

Took me a little while but I read most of the thread. Sounds like you are making good progress.

Make sure the block is clean of all debris and oil. I generally wash it with soap and water and a...
