Default Another newbie Saturn ('98 SL1) owner here

Hi folks. This site is great. My SL1 has 94K. I'm the 2nd owner. The car was well-maintained and runs very well (knock on wood). Only things I'm unhappy w/ so far (bought it Mon) are that the A/C blows un-cold air and there is only an AM-FM radio.

I know very little about Saturns- for example, I wasn't aware they tend to burn oil. So much to digest....However, I think the first thing I'll do is change the ECTS!

I'll try to get pics up tomorrow.

Thanks for all the knowledge....

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Not all of them burn oil. It is important to keep the oil full, and change it regularly. Welcome!

...
97 SL. Born 6/5/97, bought 7/7/97
08 Burgman 400
02 Haro MTB- can't kill it, still trying though

The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
Will Munny: We all got it coming, kid.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Hey- Thanks for the welcome. Haven't had time to take pics or do anything to the car except to temporarily defeat that annoying "door is open" dinging w/ some duct tape. What has everyone else done for that? The person responsible for that thing should be shot!

Discovered tonight that the odometer and stereo backlights don't work and that the headlights are very bright.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
