I just purchased a 1999 Saturn SL2 with 126000 for $800 to save some miles/gas on my daily driver. I've been looking at this thread in anticipation of purchasing the vehicle and noticed that I am having some of the issues mentioned, including:

1) ECTS - I have the service record that says the thermostat was changed (and possibly the ECTS as well) but my coolant level is just sitting at the quarter mark after driving it (as shown in the picture provided on the first page). Any tips or advice before I go changing both?

2) Two engine codes - P0133 "O2 Slow Response Bank 1 Sensor 1" and P0404 "EGR Range/Performance." Any way these could be related? Found the youtube video that shows the cleaning which I am prepared to do on a warmer day (it is getting pretty cold here in NJ).

3) Needs a new headliner. Any websites anyone can recommend for OEM or like replacement?

4) Rust is present on the passenger back door right where you step into the car. Anything anyone can recommend to prevent further rust +treating existing rust would be greatly appreciated.

Other than that engine and trans are good. No visible leaks. I'm excited to learn more and help others too with my experiences. Sorry if I am posting in the wrong spot or hijacking a thread. All apologies and have a good one to all! And a big thank you to all who have helped so far and to all with further guidance to give!
You really should have opened your own thread rather then post to this one. I'm going to open one for you and you can find it here >> http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=235783
