Re: Dexcool

Saturn's all used green coolant until later in production when they switched to Dexcool. The first 500 or so 1991 Saturn's were filled with the wrong formula antifreeze by Texaco and they were...

Re: Dexcool

But, the whole appeal with Dexcool was no required change for 150K mile or 10 years. I'm not saying that's right or anything but why should you change it regularly if it is advertised by the vehicle...

Re: Dexcool

I too am against Dexcool, good on paper, not so much in reality. It doesn't play well with other coolant types and it hates air. How do I know? I'm one of the many Chevy S-Series/Blazer/Bravada...

Re: stumped

Clean the EGR valve; my car does the same thing. Around 1700RPM the EGR is supposed to open but it gets full of carbon and hangs up or doesn't open/close fast enough so you get that chugging you're...

Re: Wiper motor swap.....what years will interchange?

I had to swap the motor on my 94'. What happens most times is that the wiper arms themselves strip out the splines where they attach to the wiper transmission. 13mm bolts hold the wiper arms on, once...

Re: Secrets to keeping your Saturn looking good after 375,000 miles ( car detailing )

The engine bay is the most impressive, especially at 375K:cool:

I see the rear door sills were rusting out, I have seen 1-2 out of probably 75-100 4 doors that weren't rusted out there, gotta'...

Re: Headliner upholstery adhesive

I used the Permatex in the orange 16.9Oz. can and I used the whole can on my coupe, which has a sunroof and a generally tiny headliner. I would use at least 2 cans on an SL because it's not fun (or...

Re: Hard to start...

The light has multiple functions on the Gen 1 cars too. If you unplug the ECTS the coolant light and fan will come on as a failsafe.

Re: Recommended oil filter ??

Re: Hard to start...

It is possible for a brass ECTS to go bad, but it is extremely rare. I had one in my toolbox for a while that was bad. If you measured the resistance it would show an open circuit, may be something...

Re: Vibrations

By any chance did you loosen the lower engine dogbone mount when you replaced the top motor mount? This can cause the car to have some funky vibrations even after the top mount is replaced.

Re: Automatic Seatbelts

If both of them have gone out check for a common link between them, I don't recall if they both draw power from the same fuse or not.

You could also take off the center console and check the...

Re: SL1 vs SL2 Comparisons

I don't find either engine particularly bad as long as it has a 5-spd. transmission backing it up. I don't have any experience driving a Saturn with an auto (it has been programmed into my brain to...

Re: bucking?

That range is around when the EGR valve opens, my car has the same bucking or chugging motion at the same RPM's. I have cleaned the EGR valve but I think the valve itself is bad, I'm just too cheap...

Re: Instrument panel lighting

Not too difficult, only 2 bolts (7 or 8mm) holding the dash on and some snap type metal clips take the dash top off and you should be able to access the lights. As PurdueGuy mentioned you must twist...
