Re: New to Saturn

RockAuto sells fan motors, cheap. Just replace motor. You can disconnect it and then connect direct to the battery to verify it is your motor that has died. There is the fuse and relay either of...

Re: New to Saturn

When it quits the part to fix it will no longer be available. Among other things it takes out the fuel pump and BCM when it fails. Build an aux power distribution panel or stock parts to fix.

Re: New to Saturn

On another note as you have not mentioned where you are located it is difficult to actually get a good value on your new car.

Re: New to Saturn

The lack of understanding of how a VI index is defined and derived allows a refiner the ability to formulate an oil that meets the criteria for a 0w-30 or 0w-40 rating and still have it turn into...

Re: New to Saturn

Re: New to Saturn

You are making a bad assumption, or the programmer maed a bad assumption. The VI is only defined between 40C and 100C what happens outside of those extremes is not defined and you will find 1 or 2...

Re: New to Saturn

Something to keep in mind is the VI is defined by the 40C and 100C viscosity values and the area between those 2 values. What happens to viscosity vs. temperature at <40C and >100C is undefined....
