Default Re: Cps

I think I read (from OldNuc, maybe?) that they work fine until they fail.

They fail when hot, and letting it cool down means you can start the car again and it will run until it overheats again.

Also read that pushing the car so that one side is up on a curb gives you enough room to crawl underneath to change (fetchitfido, maybe?)

I've driven 2 Saturns daily for the past 9~10 years. Knock on wood, have yet to have one fail on me.

First Saturn, the silver one in the avatar pic, I drove for ~8 years and 100k miles (has over 200k miles on it, engine still runs great), AFAIK on the original CPS

Doesn't hurt to change it, and you can keep the old one in the glovebox for a spare
