Nice! Your car will appreciate the attention

What airbox mod did you do?

Welcome to the forum and you get 2 brownie points ( non redeemable ) for doing your homework.
Is this your first Saturn ? Keep an eye on things - especially oil and coolant, and the pavement where you park it.

Default Re: my new to me '99 SL2

Thanks for the welcome. This is my first Saturn. I have been on here researching for about a month now. I found a lot of great info on these cars,which made things a lot easier. I have been keeping a close eye on the engine oil and coolant. It uses a small amount of oil,but not too bad.
As far as the airbox,I removed the resonator above the radiator,airbox inlet tube that is riveted in and cut out the corner of the airbox next to the battery. I am also going to get a K&N drop in filter soon.

Synthetic oil generally will help to keep the oil usage from getting worse, if you can justify the extra cost and it is not burning a lot. It should also get you another 1-2 mpg.
