Default Re: 2002 Saturn SL1 Quill Seal Removal

If you want to do this right then buy the LUK clutch and flywheel for a 91-98 Saturn part number 04-115. This one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LUK-PREMIUM...cAAOxyOlhS9D~W

Either replace the flywheel or buy a new one. The input shaft splines must be cleaned and lubed and the clutch hub splines cleaned and lubed. After lubing wipe excess off with a paper towel as excess lube will be immediately deposited on the friction disk.

You can also buy a heavier duty clutch.

Trans must remain in neutral or the blocking rings stick.

Shifting is likely a combination of things including the fluid. Dexron-3 is only recommended for emergency use by the OEM. the manual used a proprietary lifetime fluid after the first and only change at 6000 miles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
