Re: 2002 SL1 sat for 4 years. What to do?

I'm too cheap to put money on it, but I agree, add gas and start. Never had a problem with starting a fuel injected car no matter how long it's been sitting.

If I wanted to be super careful, I'd...

Re: Weird Idling Issues, Worsening Over Time

That there's a problem with the gasket replacement that was done - it may not have been done at all.

Re: Just Picked up a 99 SW1

Give the AC valve stems just a little twist to make sure they are tight. You can use needle nose pliers or a valve tool for bike tires to do this.

On my current Saturn, similar situation. Added...

Re: Can I swap a sl1 engine into a sl2 car?

YMMV, but IMO worries about old gas are overrated. I just add fresh gas and run the car. Worst issue I've personally seen is a a short period of rough idling. Though, first full tank of gas, I'll...

Re: Cant open door! 1992 SC

There's some actuator rods inside the door that are attached to the inside and outside handles, and door lock. They are connected by plastic bits that break.

Re: Well.. it happened. Who needs a parts car in MI?

Re: 2001 Saturn sl2, maintenance questions and more.

Maybe an oil catch can between the PCV and intake?

If the inside of the intake air tube is oily, maybe some kind of filter or catch can up there at the breather hose, too.

Re: SW wagon good for a long road trip?

The Saturn with the most miles that I am aware of was an auto trans.

To be fair, the owner changed the ATF every 10k miles. But the trans and engine were 100% original at the 883,000 mile mark,...

Re: New to Saturn

I think that may have developed as a "shortcut / eyeball" way of checking the top mount. The OEM Saturn method involved a ruler/straight edge.
