Re: All to common coolant leak at the intake manifold

Are these the same thing "Bar's Leaks Radiator Stop Leak Tablets"? They look the same and are available at local parts stores.

Re: All to common coolant leak at the intake manifold

I just read through this thread to see what was done to fix the leak. I have a 2000 SL2 that's been leaking for years. Could never (or never tried hard enough) to find the leak until yesterday. The...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

The furnace is fixed and the car is running great. We've been making it a point to drive it whenever possible. Have driven it over 110 miles now with no issues. Let's call this one solved.

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Update:

I tested the existing coil's resistance and they both measured below spec so I ordered the ICM as well as two coil packs. Had some rewards from the credit card so this all cost me less...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Well on the way to church about 3 miles in the car started running bad again. I was so happy.:rolleyes: Stopped it and hooked up the timing light and the 2 middle cylinders were not firing again. So...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

I've been leaning towards a new ICM but wanted to see what happened after I swapped the coils. I'll drive it for a while and see what happens.

I drove a 1985 Chevy Celebrity for over 13 years. One...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Thanks TomM96 for the info as well as all the others that have helped. And TomM96 I replaced the plugs a few weeks ago.

Well here's where I'm at. Is it wrong to hate your Saturn because it's...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

One more post then I'm done with this car today. New wires did little to help. I did a resistance check on them and they were within specs but I figured 14 year old wires should be changed.

Once...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Welp I think I'll rule out water in the tank. Used it this morning for several errands and it started and ran great. Then about 15 minutes into it, it started running bad. And it kept running bad for...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Another quick update. I drove the car to a local store yesterday. It started fine but several times it started the misfire thing but cleared up after a few seconds. While at the store I picked a 4...

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Oh and after I tested the fuel pressure I left the gauge attached and came back about an hour later and there was still 51 psi of pressure. So it would seem the injectors are not leaking.

Re: Strange P0300 occurrence

Fuel pressure at the rail is a steady 56~57 lbs. I will try to check it when it's running bad.

Thanks for the reply TomM96. Yes I was planning on putting some cleaner in the tank. Most of them say start with a nearly empty tank then fill it after adding the contents of the bottle. It's...

Strange P0300 occurrence

2000 SL2, manual trans, 164,000 miles.

First, about 3 weeks ago the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs and a couple of other throttle body parts were replaced. And the throttle body was cleaned....

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

And those numbers are on the relay socket after you remove the relay. I don't have a wiring diagram for this car. Wish I did. My manual has other years diagrams but none for a 2000. I suppose other...

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

No I didn't miss that. Saw you had a question mark (30 and 87?) by the numbers and was scared to try. Is that relay a simple single pole guy where you only have to jumper 2 sockets? A no brainer?

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

Thank you billr for all your help, really!!!:yes: Yeah not much more to talk about.

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

No the fuel pressure at the rail has remained just over 10 lbs. When I was in the car before I noticed the fuel pump has gotten quieter. I used to hear it run for a few seconds after turning the car...

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

I ordered a new MAP and TP sensor. I didn't spend a lot of money so no harm done. The car does run better but it is definitely not fixed. I actually took it for a ride and it did not stall, forcing...

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

The filter I purchased said it has a 5/16" return line in the specs. I also found a Purolator filter that says Inlet/Outlet: 0.38 and Vapor Return: 0.31. I will make another adapter with the 5/16"...

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

Yeah I know. I was more worried my adapter would blow off and spray gas all over the driveway. Yes there are 2 lines going into the filter. From what I understand the smaller 5/16" line is the return...

Re: SL2 bucking, hesitation, jerking, problem solved.

In freeze frame data I have this.
STFT= -56.3 (I assume the down arrow next to the value means subtract)
LTFT = +21.1 (up arrow)
RPM = 2024
MAP = 72
Speed = 47.8 mph
TP = 18
ECT = 183
