Re: 1997 Saturn SW2 (HELP)

OK, you say the battery drains "quick", but what does that mean? If fully charged (12.6V or more), does the battery drop to 11.9V in ten minutes? eight hours? What? A good battery, in a good SW2,...

Re: 1997 Saturn SW2 (HELP)

Did you wait about 15 minutes after turning everything off before checking for parasitic current? That .5A is higher than it should be, but not so bad that I would expect all the other problems you...

Re: Problem with engine RPMS falling too slowly when put clutch in-- SL-1

Yes, TPS = Throttle Position Sensor.

I don't think the TPS is bad, though. What you describe, including the few hundred rpm rise, seems quite normal for these cars. Most of us feel no need, in...

Re: Intermittent slipping clutch SL-1

Maybe the quill. Any oil from the rear main gets slung of by the flywheel, never makes it "around the corner" to the clutch. Assuming, of course, the rear main leak isn't so bad that the...

Re: Problem with engine RPMS falling too slowly when put clutch in-- SL-1

I think the OP is mainly concerned with shifting "up", like from 3rd to 4th. That would require the engine speed to drop as the shift is accomplished. Opposite of what you are describing for a...

Re: Intermittent slipping clutch SL-1

I'll have to think about how to describe it, and post later as I am out of time.

However, I do not think it is safe to say the hydraulics will only, or even more commonly, cause problems with...

"Question: when you say you think you are seeing the same thing-- do you mean even including sometimes seeing a slight *rise* in RPMs immediately after you put the clutch in-- even if your foot came...

Re: 1997 Saturn SW2 (HELP)

No parasitic draw? These cars always have some draw, probably in the 50-100 mA range; due to keeping memory in the PCM and radio/clock alive. So, if you found, literally, zero, then you did the...

Re: Crank, No Start on "new" '93 SL2 (77k!!!) UPDATE

More reliable/definitive than fussing with A/C for checking the engine fan is to simply jumper the OBD connector, like for reading "blinky" trouble-codes. That will force the fan on.

Again, I...

Re: Intermittent slipping clutch SL-1

It's not the heat of slipping once at the beginning of a trip.

What make and P/N clutch did you put in? I assume the disk, pressure-plate, and throw-out bearing were all in a kit.

I didn't...

Re: Problem with engine RPMS falling too slowly when put clutch in-- SL-1

I think that throttle response is normal. Both my manual SL2s have been like that as long as I have had them (and one was bought new).

If you can't bang an upshift as fast as you want (like well...

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

I'm pretty sure that emissions air thingy is configured to be a pump, forcing extra air into the exhaust. That is the way they were when they first appeared in 1965. That means the inlet would have...

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

The air pump could probably pull enough vacuum, but does it run all the time? Besides, many of us with older gen1 and gen2 never had that pump, and never want one.

Tapping into the intake is not...

Re: 98 Saturn sl2 engine swap help

Doing an engine change involves disturbing pretty much every connection of wiring, hoses, and mechanisms. Probably even more so with a transplant. There are many possible suspects here. I suggest...

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

Engines draw the crankcase air in through the air filter for combustion air, and have oil filters, and generally have the oil and filter changed frequently. The trans snout would be drawing in air...

Re: 98 Saturn sl2 engine swap help

Do you have live-data? What is the MAP; KOEO, idling, full throttle, and cruising around on level ground (any speed will do)?

PS: if your location altitude is over 500 ft., let us know how high.

Re: Output Shaft Quill Seal Qs

I think any scheme to replace just the seal, re-using and old bearing, is too limited to be worthwhile. Yeah, the seal seems to be a problem more often, but sooner-or-later the bearing will need to...

Re: Intermittent Stall at Idle

When I had a similar problem with my '94 SL2, it turned out to be the 5V supply in the PCM was flakey. My symptoms started with the "idle stutter", then progressed to include sometimes hard...

Re: 1999 SW2 no start

Parallel will work fine.

Measure resistance from that terminal on the starter to ground to get some clue as to amperage. I'm guessing about 10A.

Re: 2000 Sw2 77k miles trans issues.

Did you swap solenoids around? If the one in the TCC position is stuck/damaged, pulling the fuses will have no effect. Pulling the fuses was just to eliminate all other electrical...

Re: 1999 SW2 no start

#20 or larger should be good enough for this very brief duty, but I would probably use #16. (copper)

A pushbutton, or any other kind of "mometary on" switch, will work OK. Even non-momentary,...
