Re: Is this the end?

I'd start with a compression test. Simple quick and will give you a good view of the overall health of the engine.

Second I would spark test the coils. The difference in the plugs points to either...

Re: Worried engine seized, but hopefully just the Starter

I'd put a wrench on the crank pulley and give it a turn before I spent any $$ at all.

Re: If Jay Leno Adds A Saturn to His Collection?

I think a teal colored 1995 SL1 with a lot of miles would be a good piece for him to have.

I'd even offer it as a trade for something else from his collection.

Re: Ac low pressure switch

All good advice given.

If the charge in the a/c system is correct then it should run. I have seen failed pressure switches although pretty uncommon. Replacement is very easy, unscrew the old and...

Re: An Introduction to My Free 94 SL1

the broken odometer is a bad gear in it. You can buy replacements on ebay.

Pretty easy job to install.

Re: Highmile gets an upgrade

The tabs at the top of the condenser had to be trimmed downward to get the lower fasteners to line up. I did it in the car but it wasn't easy. I took just less than an 1/8" off them. A second set of...

Re: Economy ? Seriously ?

So you still need to check the coils from what I'm seeing. Just because you replaced the plugs with the same ones that were in it doesn't mean they are the correct ones. Saturn's can be very picky...

Re: Economy ? Seriously ?

Step 1: run a compression test

if good then

step 2: check coils, ohm check and spark check.

step 3: check for a clogged cat-con.

Step 4: make sure you installed the correct copper plugs.

Re: 1997 SL 2 Manual Saturn Transaxel Question

No need to remove the battery. Funnel with a long 'tail' or a piece of rubber hose you can stick into the end and/or electrical tape to it.

Re: Where does everyone look for old S-Series for sale?

I think the emission standards that the state of Ca enacted spelled the end for many of our beloved saturns. Folks had a limit on the cash they would spend for a car with a value of most saturns.
