Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

The instrament panel? The left turn signal indicator is burned out, would that cause it? The horn is also not working. Does the PCM care about the horn? I never use it.

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

Would a reset trigger a service wrench light? Any ideas on how to complete a drive cycle in an unregistered, uninsured vehicle without drawing attention from the police?:arr:

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

Passing an emissions test is the most important thing to fix, but I did notice that the brakes desperately need to be bled (the pedal almost sunk to the floor, and the brakes gave little response),...

The lights that show up with with key on, engine off are "service engine soon", "service" wrench, battery, oil, low fuel, and parking brake. When started, all turn off except parking brake (I am on a...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

The engine was running rough, with low pitch noises coming from exhaust. I always assumed that this was caused by the misfire that was detected by the OBD2 reader. These noises show up...

after driving up and down the street, half of the saturn specific codes vanished, but still no global OBD2 codes.

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

I checked the spark plug gap, they were all 0.040 inches. I cleaned them with a rag, and put them back in. I switched the misfiring cylinder 1 plug with the cylinder 2 plug. The "service" light did...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

I have not yet had time to switch anything out, but I did do a test the fuel pressure.
With key on, engine off, it started a 42 PSI, dropping to 38 PSI after about 5 minutes. At idle, it bounced...

Re: CAR-CISSISM / vanity

This is a major revelation: These small non-AWD cars are capable of driving in snow. I do not think that I could do it though, bicycles are the only thing that I can drive in snow. (and it really...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

yes, I got it to crank continuously with all spark plugs removed, I released the pressure from he guage whenever it did stop before the needle did. The spark plug wires were replaced with the plugs,...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

The new spark plugs that I installed a few weeks ago are NGK, BKR4ESA-11 according to what is printed on the box.
The ones installed by a previous owner were autolite double platinum APP 3926,...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

I have replaced the spark plugs recently with NGK plugs, but they may have gone bad afterward, so I will see if the auto parts store has any. (they had to order some last time).
Dad also smelled it...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

After removing all other spark plugs, and putting the battery on a trickle charger, it seems to be able to crank continuously most times. I released the pressure whenever it stopped before the needle...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

After having a better idea what I was doing, (at least I thought) I tested again.
I used CYLINDER;COMPRESSION/NUMBER OF STROKES format. The results were:
1;160/6,2;145/6,3;155/6,4;147/6
Added 1tsp...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

Elevation:5770 feet, or about 0.85 of sea level according to some motorcycle forum. Does that apply to any engine? Even fuel injected ones? If so, than the number for a SOCH at this altitude would be...

Re: CAR-CISSISM / vanity

This is my current saturn, a 1999 SC1. My dad thinks it is gold, but me and my sister must be color blind, because it looks grey. The clear coat is peeling, and there are some scratches, but it looks...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

Here is the video of how I was counting "pulsing" noises. https://youtu.be/h_00p-YWgDs
Are these actually strokes?
If not, how many noises are in a stroke?

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

"2 strokes per second" does that mean that the "pulsing" noises are called strokes?
5 seconds of that would add up to 10 strokes, but my starter seems to pull away on its own after 4-7 strokes, so I...

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

If 10 compression cycles is minimum, how would I count the number of compression cycles?

Re: specifics on compression testing, P0301

Yes, I had the pedal all the way to the floor.
I do not know if the results for my compression test were accurate, because they are not very consistant, and I may have been doing it wrong.

Re: Just got a 1995 Saturn SC2 how do I sup it up and improve it

1995 SC2 with automatic transmission, I have only ever seen those in junkyards. I think that is why I can not get one, they apparently stopped selling entire cars to the public about the same time I...
