Default 4madkids says, HI ALL!

I've never owned a Saturn. 24 hours ago, had you told me so, I'd have called ya loopy. Who's LOOPY now?

It's an 01 LW300 and I haven't even picked it up, or SAT in it, yet. But I have clear title!

The car is a gimme (free) with easily over 200k miles, and supposedly, a trans that does absolutely nothing. Bad battery too. The bod and int are above avg IMHO.

My username comes from the vanity plate on it. I have only 1 mad kid that more than makes up for the missing 3.

I'll be here to determine what's wrong, and if it's worth fixing. Maybe make some Saturn Fiends, er, I mean, Friends!

My skills are best described as, "Advanced Remove and Replace", having no problem swapping drivetrain stuff on many occasions.

Thanks in advance for sage advice, and see you in the L-Series Kingdom!

Trans, supposedly, we'll see. Batt, supposedly, we'll see. Cost money, ya think? Fix myself, that's why I'm here. I aim to fix a Saturn, if feasible, sure.

and Thanks...

Will have some tech Qs coming up if you are in the L-forum.

I'd post a pic, but I'm just a newbody.

And THANKS!
