Re: Mysterious rear suspension rattle

A lot of time a rattle like you describe is traced to the sway bar end links on the SL2's. The link my not be loose but if the ends are frozen it will give the same sort of issues.

Re: New Motor Mounts Are GOOOOOO!

Or just go to Rockauto and buy the solid rubber mounts that are similar to the OEM mounts.

Re: 1996 Saturn sl2 automatic, solenoid click but no start

Put a wrench on the end of the crankshaft and rotate by hand.

If it turn then prob a bad starter

if it wont turn then engine is seized

Re: MP3 circlip behind seal: right or wrong?

it should be there and it is correct as is. The ends are bent in slightly in case the retaining ring ever needs to be removed such as during a rebuild.

Replace the seal and you are good to go.

Re: Sl1 engine rebuild

Glad it's working out.

I think you have your sights set too low at 150k... I'd aim for 300K but that is just me

Re: Death wobble at 40 mph and up

I'd be suspect of the tires. More so since they are new. I had a similar issue with my saturn when it was brand new. Dealer finally swapped out tires and wheels with a car that wrecked and no more...

Re: 94 SL Rear main seal leak after rebuild

Check the oil galley plugs behind the flywheel is the only other spot I can think of.

Re: Exhaust Leak - Crack at flange

Since nobody has address the stalling I'll take a stab at it.

Since you didn't say what has been done I'll presume nothing has been done:

For someone with the tools and facilities yeah makes sense. Most folks don't have that kind of equipment though.

Re: engine help???

Compression test would be first order of business.

Then check for vacuum leak around the intake and injector.

Re: Sl1 engine rebuild

Yes repeat the oil prime but not for the reason of priming the oil system but more for listening for strange noises. I'd start with plugs out and then repeat with plugs in and fuel pump relay pulled...

Re: Sl1 engine rebuild

Take a deep breath... probably nothing that bad.

Oil being cloudy, it's probably just the assembly lube you used.

While the valve cover is off Definitely take the belt off and rotate the engine...

Re: Cylinder Sleeves

My current engine was bored .020 over and now has over 300k on it. When it blew the headgasket recently the cylinders still looked good with crosshatch visable. Zero oil use to date.

Re: 94 sc2 having engine problems

Run a compression test first. Nothing will help if you have a cylinder with low compression.
