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

Installed ANOTHER front wheel bearing last Thurs because 1 day after I finished the job, someone posted an addendum to the list of instructions warning anyone doing this job to remember when pressing the hub into the bearing, to MAKE SURE the inner race is supported. ONE DAY! The whole job had to be done over again, but it did not take as long. Now the shifter (manual) is notchy and from reading here I need to replace the slave/master clutch actuator assy. It is ordered and might be here today. It cost me $89 delivered with prices up to $120 (plus tax) at the local Carquest and many other pricepoints between. Replaced the right front wheel and hubcap after an unfortunate encounter with a chuckhole one night on the way to play hockey. (BROKE the hubcap, but tire did not go flat)

Going to get the radiator tested.

I'm losing a quart of coolant every 20 miles. Something is off.

No drips. Fresh head gasket.

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

This week I took her on an impromptu road trip. ~1700 miles in 3 days with a funeral and burial in the middle.

As for the car, she did just fine. Frustratingly I received new front anti-sway bar bushings the day I left so I didn't get to install and test them with this trip. On the up side she managed ~36 MPG with my bat-outa-hell driving style maintaining 5-10 MPH over the speed limit depending on who I was following. used about a quart of oil for the entire drive too, seemingly half of it on a missed shift...

Trot, the steadily rolling, fox...

Some of the things I did to this car were done before I did so much research on Saturnfans.com, so I bought a fixed orifice PCV valve and installed it and now we'll see if that helps the oil consumption any. It seems to be spotty, sometimes it uses a lot, sometimes not, I dnk why yet.
