Re: P0010 troubles...

Please don't jump to conclusions. There's a reason for asking you to perform specific tests.

Re: 2003 Saturn Vue 4-cyl Manual Transmission 204k miles

What does "very little of spark plugs left" mean? Flashing engine light means excessive misfiring with unburned fuel entering the catcon. Left this way, the catcon can destroy itself in less than 50...

Re: 2002 Saturn SC1 coupe has security issue

That's all you. I have nothing to do with your solution to this Passlock problem. You found a different answer.

Re: No power to wheels

If either the clutch master or slave cylinder failed, gear shifting would result in grinding since the clutch can't be disengaged with a running engine. With engine stopped, shifts can occur with or...
