Re: Rear Suspension Part ID

I did use PB Blaster to take the bottom one off and it was still a little bit of a PITA. I remember one nut being 15mm and the other one was 14mm. I might try the melting the plastic trick when I...

Rear Suspension Part ID

I developed a rattle at the driver's side rear wheel. After getting the wife to wiggle the car while I laid under it I was able to determine the rattle (metal on metal sound) is coming from a 5 to 6...

Re: 98 and 99 Saturn SL2 comparisons?

Thanks so much for the information. Pretty much the same car with less than half the mileage. Dealer is asking $2995. I've done quite a bit of work on my 98 so I know the car pretty well and would...

Re: 98 and 99 Saturn SL2 comparisons?

Any distinct way to verify if it is 3rd Generation? Manufacture date or any visable differences? Did the 3rd Generation cars have the oil consumption issues or any other common mechanical defects?

Re: Throttle stop screw adjustment.

NGK's. I will do some more searching on the best way to clean the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor. Found a few posts that say it is easy to break and to be careful. Didn't find a picture yet of...

Re: Throttle stop screw adjustment.

Is the contact with the throttle plate something I can feel (screw bumps against) or is it something I should be looking for with my eyes?

New plugs and wires, cleaned the EGR but used the old...

Re: Throttle stop screw adjustment.

OK, so I don't have to totally cover the hole with my finger? Just enough to drop the rpm's a few 100 and then pull off. Got it.

Saturday when messing with this the rpm's would climb to 3000...

Re: Throttle stop screw adjustment.

I cleaned the throttle body according to the Richpin video so I'm assuming I cleaned the IACV and passage but maybe not? I can kill the engine by slowly sliding my thumb over the hole in the bottom...

I messed with this screw back in December (I know...I shouldn't have) and want to be sure I get it back where it belongs. I received these instructions from Old Nuc but want to make sure I...

Re: Warm air performance?

Cleaned up the EGR valve. It was pretty dirty. Car still hesitating/stumbling only when up to temperature.

Old Nuc,

I tried adjusting that throttle screw per your instructions in an earlier...

Warm air performance?

Re: New pads and rotors...vibration?

So I take the supposed warped rotor back to Advanced Auto today and a different guy pulls up the part # and brings the rotor out. He takes it out of the box and it is quite a bit thicker than the...

Re: Plugging the sidewall of a tire?

Thanks for the information. Tire is pretty much done for! As a matter of fact we already have one hanging from a tree out front! Wonder if BF Goodrich has any kind kind of warranty for something...

Plugging the sidewall of a tire?

I've plugged several tires in my life with no problems but they have always been on the treaded part of the tire. I recall being told you can't plug the sidewall of a tire. Is that correct and...

Re: New pads and rotors...vibration?

shroom,

Mine were $23 at Advanced Auto but not sure what brand they are. Like you I have never "bedded in" pads and rotors. I'd be curious to talk to a mechanic or maybe one will chime in here...

Re: RPM Not Dropping after shift

I did read your post but misinterpreted what you were saying the first time. I think I mentioned that in my post. When I read it again I said it does sound like a clutch issue. My car acted...

Re: New pads and rotors...vibration?

Got home from work and decided to throw one of the old rotors back on the driver's side front since that seems to be where all the noise and clatter is coming from. The car acts as if there is a...

Re: RPM Not Dropping after shift

I didn't think it was your clutch slipping when I read your post the first time. When I saw the title about "RPM not dropping after shift" it reminded me of exactly how my car behaved. So I assumed...

Re: RPM Not Dropping after shift

I had this same exact problem on my 98 SL2 5 spd a few months ago. Turned out to be my thermostat. Check it out.
