1997 SW2
Default Happy 2017 Saturnfans! Any Resolutions?

Happy 2017 to all Saturnfans!
What is your resolution?

Mine:

1) My green SW2 turns 20 as of Jan 2017 according to its door sticker and in CT that means I can get Antique plates, so I will.

2) finally going to put new struts in after 5 years of clunking. I really mean it this year.

Best wishes to all for better times ahead!

Default Re: Happy 2017 Saturnfans! Any Resolutions?

To reach the moon (another 5K miles to go) and then to retire the Saturn to another family who wants to keep her on the road. I will donate it to the right person. If I can't find the right person, I have a favorite charity in mind that serves the public.

The clunking is often caused by worn sway bar to lca bushings. I have mistakenly replaced perfectly good original struts only to find out afterwards that it was the sway bar bushings. It is difficult to near impossible to diagnose and pinpoint the clunk when the vehicle is not moving.

I could and will say the same for myself!

I'll also add> Drive a bit slower, check my oil LESS often, just when I fill up with fuel is more than enough.

...
My 96 SL2 and 98 SL1 have joined together to become one. So I guess I now have a 1996/8
SL1-2.

Happy NY to you too!

Ride 2 wheels more and drive less. (Mountain bike and Suzuki)

Play tennis more

Use membership at Nix Center and learn to shoot pool finally

More U.S. trips on roads I've never been, including Blue Highways

Keep my almost-20-year-old SL running another year. I don't know if AL has Antique Plates though.

2000 SL2
Default Re: Happy 2017 Saturnfans! Any Resolutions?

Glad to see im not the only one who has grown out of the lovely clunking lol

Much the same here the ole sl2 needs new struts but i also plan on boring the throttle plate (if you know a guy in michigan let me know!) installing a warm air intake in the spring preferably giving it a nice little splash shield by cutting the old airbox and possibly replacing the coil packs as they are corroded but some spray paint should keep them going. Id really like to swap my pcm with an sc2 to remove the speed limited and see if the pcm helps with over steer
