Re: Valve seals on DOHC

I have had success with using a 2x4 and some C-Clamps.

Re: S-Series Spot and Shot

Wow, I rarely see any on the road in general down here in PA.
On my trip to Jeffersonville IN I only saw 1 other S-Series on the highway. Quite disappointing.

Re: My 1994 Homecoming Edition "Restoration" Thread

I would offer to send some parts in, but I do not want to touch this sunroof until it stops working.
Perhaps the JY has one I can get into.

Re: My 1994 Homecoming Edition "Restoration" Thread

Any update on the sunroof parts for first gens?
I have a 1994 with a functioning sunroof, but I would like to get some spare parts for it.

Re: AC Clutch Never disengages

My hoses used to bubble a little around the valve, you can try to tighten them a little or just put a small dab of rtv on the inside of the plastic cap. Beware this may make a mess if you have to get...

Re: Changing main bearings without engine removal

If the rod bearings look good, I would bet the mains look even better. Maybe replace the rod bearings and leave the mains, but if there is very little wear on the rod bearings I would be inclined to...

Re: I'm in need of some direction.

If you want my advice, just drive the car and learn how to do basic maintenance before anything else.

Get acquainted with fluid changes, sensor replacements, and regular service intervals. Learn...

Re: Replaced Clutch and Hydralics Still Slipping

Make sure the input shaft seal is not leaking onto the clutch, because if it is you will encounter slippage. And to make it even better, the input shaft seal/bearing assembly is no longer available. ...

Re: LCA Bolt Availability

Run to Greble U-Pull it in Myerstown PA, I am sure there are a few S-Series there to pick from (I see you are near that area).

Re: A2Saturn

Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be able to bring Scott's 1994 Sl1 home.

For the remainder of it's life, it will be garage kept and driven occasionally (weather permitting). I intend to...

Re: Sudden onset of engine clacking/knocking noise while driving uphill

The pressure test is commonly called a leak down test. That will let you know if the rings or valve seats are shot and allowing oil to get through.

Personally, the noise to me sounds like a rod...

Re: Seeking a transmission recommendation.

This is not necessarily true, it depends on the hardness of the pin. Generally, the harder the metal, the more brittle it is. Nothing to do with whether or not it is a coil format.

Re: Seeking a transmission recommendation.

I will warn that the upgraded pin is not a definite solution, and the same goes for welding the diff pin.
I have blown a trans with a beefed up pin, it lasted maybe a few months of abuse on the...

Re: Mystery coolant loss. Head gasket?

The cap may be suspect, it is the cheapest part so I would replace with a good quality one. The purge line may be leaking at the fitting where it enters into the overflow tank.

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

Not around here, a lot of S-Series are gone. I see one here and there on the road, maybe 5-10 in the yard with most being auto. The last 5 quill seals I pulled in the yard, I had to remove the trans...

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

Re: Aluminum valve cover 99+

If he buys a CNC machine and is looking for some revenue, I may have a few projects if he is interested. Mainly things like intake manifold flanges and maybe a few brackets/ plates.

Re: P0300 & Lost Compression

I do not think that would cause an issue, and doing it on the GDI is a good idea. I have seen pictures of buildup on the intake valves and it sure gets nasty.

I am glad you gave the S-car a...

Re: P0300 & Lost Compression

Sorry to see that piston is damaged, I am willing to bet that detonation/pre ignition due to fueling issues contributed to the piston breaking and the head gasket blowing out.

Now, what caused the...
