Re: evacuate a/c system

Basically, yes. Any time an a/c system is opened, it must be evacuated once the repairs are complete. The only question is how much oil to add. This depends on the nature of the failure of the...

Re: 99 SC2 ABS light

Don't know about the ABS, but DRL's going off when the handbrake is applied is normal and by design.

Re: 2002 SC1 needs new home

Sold it to the local recycler for $200 this morning. Hopefully pieces of it will live on.

Re: 2001 SC2 Operating Temp

3rd gen setup results in a lower normal gauge reading than 2nd gen. 3/8 scale with a/c running is normal, since the cooling fans runs constantly with a/c on. If you sit in traffic with the a/c off,...

Re: 2001 Saturn SC2 revs dropping at idle - engine stall

Manual or automatic?

A dirty throttle body and failing Idle Air Control Valve could combine to create the symptoms you are seeing.

Re: 2002 SC1 needs new home

No sunroof. RKE stopped working a few years back. Power windows. Driver's window needs to be lubricated to work right. Rust free Houston, TX car.

Re: 2002 SC1 needs new home

A few pics attached. The car is not an embarrassment, but it does show some wear. A lot of clear coat has peeled off the left side, the rear bumper cover has minor damage, and the right headlight...

2002 SC1 needs new home

Today is my final commute in the old SC1. For $300 it can be yours. Immediate needs are front suspension rebuild and brake service. Convenience issues are headliner and speakers. A/C works. 315k...

Re: Bad clutch hydraulics?

Step one would be to check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder reservoir and top it off if needed with clean brake fluid.

Re: The end is near

That's unusual for your location - good maintenance. I've never broken a bolt on this car either, and have replaced the fuel filter and the sway bar bushings as well as pulling the exhaust manifold...

Re: The end is near

Bought a 2018 Elantra GT, electric blue, 2.0 liter, 6 sp manual. The manual is hard to find, so the car is coming from out west somewhere, hence the wait.

A spare car is nice. My old Crown Vic...

Re: The end is near

Yes, that would be a long trip. The car would probably make it though, and you could impress your friends with how pristine the underside of a 17 year old car that's never seen road salt can be!!!

The end is near

My new car arrives this weekend, which spells the end for my Saturn. 17 years and 315,000 miles - a long and noble life. Couldn't have done it without the advice and encouragement from the fine...

Re: Secondary air injection system

Glad you got it sorted. This system is a pain. Honestly, if I add up all the time I've spent fixing my Saturn, over 50% of it would be related to the secondary air injection system.

Re: Silly Electrons

Re: Secondary air injection system

If you are seeing vacuum at the diverter valve after the air pump shuts off, then that solenoid switch is likely stuck open. Operating in this state will trash the new air pump, with hot exhaust...

Re: Silly Electrons

Thanks guys. I suspected the BCM also. Honestly, I think it is trying to tell me that after 17 years and 313,000 miles, it might be time for a new car. There are so many things worn out on the old...

Re: Silly Electrons

An update and plea for advice. The car has started and run fine since I tightened the battery terminals. I'm using it daily.

Re: Outer Tie Rod End Brand?

I've always had good success with Moog suspension parts, and used their outer tie rod ends on my Saturn. Something is wrong in that picture. Either the wrong tie rod end, the wrong nut or a badly...

Re: High Idle/Low Efficiency Codes

P0134 is no activity from front sensor. It is either not connected correctly or bad. I'd fix that before worrying about the P0420 code, since a working front sensor is likely required for the cat...

Re: Weird idle issue

My SC-1 has done this for years. Idle randomly drops to 600 rpm for half a second and recovers to normal. I've learned to ignore it, since it has continued through EGR valve, TPS and IACV...

Silly Electrons

Strange evening. I got back from two days out of town. The Saturn had sat for those 2 days. Jumped in to go to the local store and it started normally, but the gas gauge was off the scale empty. ...

Re: SC-2 3 door coupe seat belt problems

Mine does the same thing. When you have the belt in the little loop on the side of the headrest, it tends to rub on the sharp edge of the plastic thing where the belt passes through the headliner. ...
