Re: Rear Wheel Drive!!!

Take the V-6 engine cradle and power module out of a Fiero. Substitute in the newer 3.4 liter engine and plug it into the rear of a Saturn SC.

Heck, try one of the supercharged 3.8's instead of...

Re: 94 SL2 Exhaust Heat Shields

No, I didn't get a license plate. I honestly didn't get much of a description.

It was just a big grey semi truck and trailer in the dark about 11:30 PM.

When the dust and dirt blew out from...

Re: 94 SL2 Exhaust Heat Shields

I got the chance today to drop by the exhaust shop for an estimate while I was out for lunch from work.

Man, did I get lucky.

They repaired it for free. I guess there's an advantage to going...

94 SL2 Exhaust Heat Shields

Has anyone removed the sheet metal heat shields above the exhaust pipe and muffler at the rear of the car?

Recently, I hit a large piece of tread off of a semi truck. The truck blew a tire as I...

Re: Turning the air resonator into free under hood storage

On my 1st gen '94 SL2, the air pipe that runs across the top of the radiator is a straight pipe. There's no resonator box.

That resonator is there to quiet the input air noises. It must not have...

Re: Rear Disc conversion

Don't do the disc brake swap.

I have a '94 SL2 HCE with rear discs.

Re: #4 cylinder misfire, at a loss. URGENT

Check the lugs on the control module that plug into the bottom of the ignition coil. There could be a bad connection when the coil sets down onto it.

Re: #4 cylinder misfire, at a loss. URGENT

Try an even different ignition control module.

Check the wire connectors for cleanliness and corrosion, and check that the lugs on the engine block where the module bolts down. Make sure the...

Re: No heat

Is there the possibility that the blower fan has something blocking it from moving very much air. Maybe there are leaves in the blower fan cage.

Or, maybe the heater core itself is covered in...

Re: Center console extra warm next to shifter

I would imagine that the heater is blowing warm air up under the console. There's probably a failed seal on the heater box. Maybe a floor mat is folded up blocking the heater outlet and deflecting...

Re: DRL's and Headlight High Beam Connection

Two pins in the DRL relay socket should have +12 volts in their contacts when you pull the relay and everything is turned off.

Check the Right HDLP fuse and the IGN 3 fuse if you don't have 2...

Re: What blower motor is recommended?

Pull your blower motor out of the car. It actually comes out pretty easily.

There are three 7 or 8 millimeter bolts pointed straight upwards around
the perimeter of the flange of the blower...

Re: DRL's and Headlight High Beam Connection

You should investigate the right front Hi-Bean socket, looking for +12 volts on one of the wires when everything is turned of. This should be correct. If you don't find power in the socket when all...

Re: Airbags 1996 Saturn SL4

Why would age disable them?

The airbag computer checks the system every time you turn the key on, and if there is a problem, you get a flashing air bag light.

If there's no light, then all the...

Re: 2001 Saturn SL2 key duplication

Re: In the market for DOHC Aluminum Valve Cover -- 1993 - 1995

The smaller wrecking yards and those yards with older inventory that doesn't move don't have the revenue to be spending money on an expense like car-part.com.
