Re: Me and my saturns

The resistance for the fuel injectors is: 1;12.3, 2;12.2, 3;12.6, 4;12.4
voltage from injector wires is: 1;12.02, 2;12.03, 3;12.03, 4;12.03
These seem like normal readings.
I will need to wait at...

Re: Me and my saturns

Does this leak happen on 2nd gens? Could it have a leak, even if spraying a generous amount of throttle body cleaner had no effect on the idle? The "service" light came back, so I do know that the...

Re: Me and my saturns

I looked at the prices for fuel injectors, $105 each, I will never be able to afford that. I might go to the junkyard next saturday, and might get some there. I pulled it out of the garage, and the...

Re: Me and my saturns

The EGR was dirty, but replacing it with the relatively clean one off the 2001, as well as cleaning it, and the holes as best as I could with throttle body cleaner had no effect (it did take a few...

Re: Me and my saturns

The coils can be removed separately from the module? I wonder how they come off... Before I read that reply, I replaced the starter with one off the 2001. When testing them with jumper cables, I...

Re: Me and my saturns

I got the engine out of the 2001. We pushed it into the garage with a pickup truck, and pulled the engine and transmission out intact. the CV axels also came out intact, but I had trouble putting the...

Re: Me and my saturns

I switched the stupid aftermarket wheels for the stock ones I had, the giant things seem to have been rubbing. I really do believe those wheels impaired the function of this saturn.

Re: Me and my saturns

I can buy them on the internet?:sneeze: I should have thought of that, my generation is supposed to be good with computers. It is leaking, but at least I got it in the driveway. I expect it to take...

Also, this is what the 2001 saturn looks like now, the engine should be gone tomorrow. I also got the VIN.

Re: Me and my saturns

It works in reverse now, as well as forward, but it is leaking, probably because I used sealant instead of a gasket. (I will never be able to afford that)

Re: Me and my saturns

The noise seems to have been made by the manual valve link getting grinded by a gear. that was also what caused it to move forward in reverse, unless the garage is just not perfectly level. The...

Re: Me and my saturns

Update: I poured 4 quarts of ATF in the transmission, as well as 1 quart of "lucas" additive. It was not enough, even after adding what was left of the bottle I used to top it off before, it still...

Re: Me and my saturns

Today I tightened the input shaft nut. I had to grind down a brand new socket, and jamming a screwdriver in the clutch-pack caused one of the holes to elongate. I noticed that residual fluid on the...

Re: Me and my saturns

Some more pictures of my 2nd saturn. See the cracks in the driver-side quarter panel? I might get around to it. See those 18 inch aftermarket rims? They look sporty, but stupid on this car. The tires...
