Re: Need Help with Changing half shaft, Wheel Bearing. etc

If Wolfman says that the thing is held on by a rivet, I would tend to believe him. He's posted reams more excellent and reliable information on this web site than ... other people have. Perhaps...

Re: Oil pan..help!! Need ideas?

Unless I'm missing some reason that you should flip the engine before affixing a new oil pan gasket to it, why would you want to flip the engine before affixing a new oil pan gasket to it? Why not...

Re: interior paint/dye questions.

There is a label on the spare tire cover in the back of your Saturn that contains all factory color information for your particular car. I don't know right offhand if it includes interior color...

Many here will tell you that platinum plugs and Saturns do not mix well. Good luck with yours.

Re: Am I getting ripped off for $1,300 bucks?

Wow, you seem to be on good terms with your ex father-in-law. Mine has pretty much made it clear that he will assassinate me if I ever set foot on his property again (I've got a deer slug with his...

Re: How many things are broken in your S and you have no desire to fix them?

One thing I did to the ignition (and to each of the door locks) is to spritz some powdered graphite into them. Its amazing how smoothly the locks and ignition work now.

Re: Has anyonme heard of an engine running on antifreeze?

There's a thread in the How-To section dealing with changing out the fuel filter. Lots of pictures, pretty straightforward. It doesn't look that hard to me (but then again, I've not done it so...

Thermostat.

Didn't mean to drag this discussion off topic, but IMO you've got to be Plastic Man to get a socket on the bolts on the thermostat in my car.

I'm just hoping that the thermostat lasts for a while in my SC2. That thing appears to be a ***** kitty to get to.

Re: Why does everyone hate the SOHC?

Several posters here have noted that the SOHCs seem to be more prone to blowing head gaskets than the DOHC. A few even claim that they have never heard of a blown head gasket in a DOHC. Perhaps...

Re: How many things are broken in your S and you have no desire to fix them?

Mine has a pronounced bow in it as well. Its apparently a common thing - I looked at four covers out of various cars at the junkyard and they all were bowed worse than mine is. Perhaps fixing mine...

Re: Where does your temp needle sit?

Mine sits in the middle of a round black thing on my instrument panel.

Re: rattle in my dash

My Saturn's dash used to rattle like two skeletons copulating on a tin roof. I got rid of much of the problem by following another poster's suggestion of using a dab of Shoe Goo on and in the screw...

Re: Windshield Wiper Scratch Mark

I use light jeweler's rouge and a buffing wheel on a Dremel tool myself. There are kits available that claim to be able to remove glass scratches, but I've not tried any of them.
