2001 SW2
Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Pulled a pair of projector fogs from an Audi A6 this weekend, and just finished installing them on my SW2! The top of the housings are nice and flat with the mounting holes level, so it was very easy. Used angle brackets and rov nuts to mount them to the bumper support bar.

Very nice! I never think to check the Euro aisle for parts. . . usually don't have time.

Hit the JY Sunday, muddy/icy as heck, to pull a door for the minivan.

Grabbed an OEM TPS for the Saturn while I was there, installed it last night. I think it is working, had forgotten about it by this morning. Will try to remember to pay attention to my rpms on the way home.

Jumped through the hoops to return the 2-month old dud TPS to Rockauto - have to remember to package and send the part back.

1996 SL1
Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Replaced EGR valve, as its had that code (intermittently) set for a while, and each time I clean it it buys me 6 months.

Replaced downstream o2 sensor because that code came on a couple weeks ago for a bad heater circuit. New sensor works great.... I bench tested it with a torch and multimeter.

Passed CA smog... well under the limit for most things.

1996 SL1, only 120k miles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

While the Saturns do seem to always be in one section, our yard has no organization to it, and everything is mixed together. I try to go early enough on a weekend day so I can check everything out and don't feel rushed, if I have an idea of what I'd like to find.

1999 SL2
Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Hit a small pothole today and the dome light popped out. The plastic clips were extremely weak so I had to zip tie it back up. Feels better in place now than it did before!

Looking for a power steering pump and pulley and luckily found one in good condition. Only thing is: its from a 94 SC1 and I have a 99 SL2. Does anyone think it will/won't fit? It looks too similar to not take the chance.

Looking up the part number, 21013318, it seems like Saturn used the same ps pump 91-02 so it should go in fine.

Default Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

'98 SC2 Red Hot bucked & stalled on the way to Church. All crank, no start.

Had to have her towed.

Crankshaft Position Sensor was bad. Replaced.

Also replaced the Fuel Filter. I had a spare NAPA Gold. Needed it.

Red Hot is all good now!!
