1999 SL1
Default "new" saturn owner

Just picked up a new to me 1999 sl1 Saturn for $900. Has 139k original miles and needed 3 sensors according to the codes (CPS, O2 and coolant temp sensor) just finished replace the O2 and coolant sensor and no more code. Runs great and looks fairly good for the year. And I love the fact that the parts for all 3 sensors were less than 1 sensor for my 94 park ave.
Think I will stick with Saturns from here on out. Great cars that are cheap to repair.
Just don't like the location of the starter and the CPS. will have to wait for summer for that repair. hate laying on a cold wet garage floor in the winter to do that repair.
Hopefully my experience with older cars can help someone out a little on this forum.

If the engine runs, the cps is working. Keep the spare in the trunk for a rainy day. The starter is all together different. If you're familiar with how starters wear out then don't worry about it until it fails. Its been said that dbelectric sells a good low price starter.

starters fine, Just figured would pull it out to get to the cps to make that repair a little easier. But looking at some posts on here guess I don't need to just have to work a little blind to get the cps out.

Thanks
