Re: New SL2 Owner, high idle speed-

Re: Should we keep our '02 Saturn?

Most of the time you can find serviceable subframes in the local u-pull-it type salvage yards. Also check craigslist and FB marketplace. There is one for sale here in the st Louis area for $50.

Re: Good Plastic Body Panel Glue ?

Download an app called Row52. Will show yards in your area if they are signed up on it. If they are it will also show their inventory.

Re: Wheel Hub runout

I'd drive the studs out and then use a file laid flat on the surface to clean it up.

Old school shade tree would just jack one up at a time then put it in gear and hold the file against it.

Re: Saturn Sl1 struggling to move

Could be something simple too. Would it back up more or would it not move at all?

Does the engine rev when you step on the gas while it's in gear?

Have you check the transmission fluid lately?...

Re: Replace a/c pressure switch.

Pressure switch is a 10 min swap if you take your time. Take a little care breaking it loose so you don't twist the line but after that it is an easy on/off.

I've only seen 1 go bad.

Re: 2000 SL1 randomly idles really low

Your valve is fine... start it and let it run. It will take a couple of minutes for the new valve to adjust out and bring the idle down.

If this doesn't cure your idle issue then check the plugs,...

Re: HELP! Can't get strut back on car!

Just push down on the spindle and a little forward. It's probably the sway bar that is holding it up if you have already assembled the other side.

Re: SOHC to DOHC Swap

the swap is more than just swap heads and intakes.

Re: knock sensor

An easy test would be to put some premium gas in it and see if it goes away.

My last engine was prone to pinging as the miles got high. I think a lot of it was due to oil burn and the associated...
