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

My Jeep forum has one of these posts in every model forum, thought it would be cool to have one here!!

Well, I got the new rotors to fix my brake pulsating issue, as well as more R134a for my leaking A/C, and MMO and full oil change supplies to do a piston soak. We'll see if this fixes my huge oil consumption issue,

I drove to a local town where I then got stuck in because Hell-Storm 2010 came along when I was getting food. Hail, tornadoes, half the towns power going out, zero visibility from torrential rain, severe lightning and an hour later I was finally able to get back to my car. I then spent an hour driving around town trying to find a way out because all the roads were flooded, electrical lines were down or the police had them blocked off.

On a positive note, I found out the little Satty can sure plow its way through some decent size flooded roads.

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

Let's see, today is just beginning, so I'll go over this weeks work. I changed the oil, replaced the passenger side tie rod end, and replaced a fuel injector. The injector has been on on-going problem for a year now. I've had these spare injectors sitting around, but I thought I'd give the system a gas treatment first. It worked for a while, but the misfires came back a few days ago. Same cylinder as before. So far for two days, I haven't had the misfire code yet.

Today, I plan on patching up the vacuum hose to the secondary air system, and making another attempt at fixing up my lighting wiring. Some of them melted. Don't ask.

Ordered a "new" SW2 engine with 26k miles on it which will be put in later this week. Of course this is after I had finished putting a new timing kit on the SL2 and was going to fix the leaky intake manifold. Then #4 connecting rod decides it wants to throw a fit. lol

Replacement left front fender found at the local yard today (FINALLY after 5 months of on and off looking!!!) for my 94 SL2 (Black Sapphire color)

Went to 2 yards today. Limited vehicles on the Saturns.

However I did see a 2005 Saturn ION in the yard for the first time.

And a mess of Pontiac Fieros. Saw at least 10-15 of them, when previously haven't seen those cars in YEARS.

Matched paint and everything, has a small clear coat peel on it; but not worried about that.

Lighting is fixed. Although I cracked the bottom plastic piece covering the steering column. I just couldn't find a 5.5 nut driver anywhere. Nor could I find a 7/32. They are rarities, and Saturn went and put a rarity screw, in a place that's physically impossible to put a socket. Anyhow, after breaking the thing, which happened unintentionally, I just taped up my exposed wires real good. Fuse doesn't blow anymore.

Drove it to take my dad to work, noticed that my low coolant light was flashing, AGAIN , so I go and top off when I got home.

Then I forget to put the cap back on, and take my mom to the store. I then notice a small puddle, common with the consistency of a blown water pump.. I was like UGH!! till I popped open the hood and noticed the cap was off..

So I put it back on, and notice the light was still flashing, even though I had just checked it, turns out it went back down to what it was before. So I go to the store and get some distilled water. It's topped off now, except the light is still blinking...

Guess what I gotta do tomorrow?

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

For the last week, on my SC2, I delayed:

Changing oil
replacing rear bushings with urethane
milling the thickness on the hub spacers to my liking
touching up underbody rust

I also delayed replacing my dad's SW2's front wheelbearing
and fixing busted plastic on me mum's Ion

All because I replaced my bro-in-law's Intake Gasket and sparkplugs/wires on his '99 Blazer using a '95 FSM
I kept him there to suffer thru the whole process....so maybe he'll add anti-rust/water pump lube in the future.
Also replaced idler arm...so maybe he'll grease the thing once in a while
(Friggin' Star Ship Enterprise:
next up, he has -C0225, 226, 227, 281, 308,-B2376,-U1026,-U1064,-U1300 and P0340 <--which I think is my fault)
