My Shifter Gromet Finally Broke

It finally happened. The little plastic gromet/fastener (?) that holds the transmission cable to the underside of the shift lever is broken. I have a '98 SL1, 5-speed. I removed the center...

Re: SL1 Brake Job - 2nd Try Help Please !?!?!?!

I put a set of new, cheap rotors on the front of my '98 and it made a huge positive difference. Maybe it isn't the front ones causing the problem.

Re: Won't start after sitting for a day

This is no help, but your car feels the same way about winter as I do. It sucks.

Re: New Spark Plugs Make a Difference

The plug wires don't look new, but they are apparently functioning properly. I took each off, one at a time, while the motor was running and noticed quite a difference in the performance. Don't...

Re: 98 SL1 intermittently not starting

Wow, you have certainly tried and replaced more items than I have with the same problem. Mine would not start only one cold morning. By the afternoon, it started. It hasn't done it again. It...

New Spark Plugs Make a Difference

We all want cheap fixes, correct? My '98 SL1 didn't want to start on one of these cold mornings, so I thought about easy cheap fixes for it. I've had the car for a year and didn't know when the...

Re: Temp/Coolant Problem?

My coolant light was recently flashing and it appeared there was ample coolant in the bottle. I added some more and the light went out.

Re: Please help me diagnose my manual transmission. Hard to shift.

This is exactly what I was afraid of. Dealership replaces the clutch for about a grand and the problem isn't fixed. I"ll have to commend Lexington01 for not ranting about the useless clutch...

Changing Out the ECTS

Lately, my engine has been reving up a thousand RPMs or so when I depress the clutch and has a high-pitched whining sound, like it's low on power steering fluid. Also, it acted like it didn't want...

Re: One Cold Night & My Car Won't Start

I waited until mid-afternoon today and the car started fine. As good as it has all this past week. Temperature was around 55 or so. It blew a lot of smoke out the tailpipe for about 8-10 seconds...

My used '98 SL has all the problems you have described. Are you driving MY car when I'm not looking?

One Cold Night & My Car Won't Start

I can't believe the first time it gets below 32 degrees (27), my car won't start the next morning. I've had it since May of this year. Hope this is not what I'm in for all winter. It's a '98,...

Re: Engine advice needed

I paid twice what you did for my '98. I'm gonna drive mine until it stops with not many service stops in between. Other than the clutch acting up, so far so good.

Re: 1997 SC2 Hard to Shift Into 1st

Re: Back up to 2 Saturns

Don't take this personally, but no one ever got a deal at a dealership. They're not in the deal business. Glad you like your new car. Enjoy.
