Re: Any experience with eBay headlights?

It's actually the headlight frames that are busted. The lenses made it out virtually unscathed.

I wish there were some decent junkyards around here but there is really nothing in Orange County. I...

The local dealer wants $245 per headlight!

Saturnparts.com wants $145 per headlight

Re: Spongy Brakes

Thanks for the tip, I'll try to check that out soon. Our car is a very basic SL1 without ABS. The brakes just don't seem to be very effective at stopping, just like when I boiled the brake fluid on a...

Re: Spongy Brakes

I've used my Motive Power Bleeder on our Saturn. It is the easiest way to bleed brakes for sure. I still have problems with a spongy pedal, I'm not sure if it is caused by ballooning brake lines or...

Check the fluid level and start the engine.

Re: lower trans mount Q!

Those people might be the folks who did not disconnect the upper dogbone mount first.

Re: New PS Pump Whining! Please help!

Actually I think the idler pulley is one of the only things I have not replaced. Pretty dumb considering it is about $16 from AutoZone. I'll check my records because there is a very slight chance I...

Re: Do '00-'02 S-Cars Burn Oil Too?

Our 2000 SL1 doesn't burn a drop of synthetic between 5K oil changes. It now has over 110K on it.

New PS Pump Whining! Please help!

Our '00 SL1 with 110K on it has developed a whining noise over the past 15K or so. I pulled off the belt and verified it was something with the accessory drive. It is fairly subtle, sounds like the...

Re: Front End Vibration 2000 SL1

BarnOwl thanks for the advice. I actually just had the tires rotated and rebalanced, unfortunately the vibration is still present.

Re: FINALLY cured my front wheel shake!

Yes they are a perfect fit. The old bushings just get pushed out and then you install the new bushings.

I think they are ten bucks or so.

But if it makes you feel better I can say they were a...

Re: FINALLY cured my front wheel shake!

madpogue- Too bad I was a little late for you! The install of the mounts was pretty easy but cutting out the old bushings and installing the poly mounts took a little time!

Re: New way to "change" Power Sterring Fluid

So it's OK to use Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF in our 2000 SL1 power steering? The book lists some GM fluid.

The newer Audis and VWs do not use power steering fluid for the clutch, they use the brake...
