Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

My bet would be on a bad injector. You should be able to at least check the resistance of each with the pigtails removed.

Certainly not the safest method to check them, but you could pull the...

Re: Coolant reservoir- dark/sooty coating

Well the coolant itself is nice - pink I think. I know it was changed because I installed a new water pump on this car about 20k miles ago. So the coolant is clean, but the walls of the reservoir...

Dizzy Coolant reservoir- dark/sooty coating

I'm working on a friend's 2002 SL2. It has 125k on it. I'm supposed to check the car over before she gives it to her daughter.

The first thing that I noticed was the low coolant light is on. I...

Re: Window lift motor replacement Q?s

Any other thoughts on whether the motor/regultor need repositioning... or if I should just leave it as/is and button it up.

Thanks,
Steve

Re: Window lift motor replacement Q?s

I'm not sure it senses current draw. I tested the new motor by plugging in the wiring (before connecting it to the regulator) - the Auto feature spun the gear for a while. It seemed to stop after a...

Happy Window lift motor replacement Q?s

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

Just got off the phone with my friend that owns the '02 SL2. He just got the car back from the dealer. He didn't have the receipt to read - but said that the dealer replaced the "ignition". He...

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

The ECTS (and pigtail) were replaced last month at the dealer after the car failed to start. They said "bad ECTS" and recommended changing the plugs because they were fouled. Two weeks after that -...

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

Ugh - well I checked the pressure. The Key On, Engine Off reading was 44lbs. The reading at idle, running was 48lbs. And once again the plugs were fuel soaked. The car started right up when the...

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

So which fuel pressure should be right for an 2002 SL2? I'm going this morning to recheck the pressure readings and replace the spark plugs. My friend can't afford the filter/regulator yet.

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

I didn't realize this would be going 40+ replies (and 3 pages) later.... But it will be nice to get it ironed out at some point soon. I will probably swing by NAPA and pick up the filter. Then...

Re: timing kit on ebay

I think that as long as you used some sort of prelube on the bearing surfaces and/or cam lobes then no need to prime the oil pump. And pouring the oil over the cams, etc is a fine idea. Cover as...

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

Fuel pressure regulator - when the car did this (no-start/flooded) the first time, I checked the fuel pressure while running. I believe it was a steady 45 lbs. Since the plugs are fouled (when...

Re: timing kit on ebay

I have bought 2 or 3 (Saturn) timing kits off Ebay. They seem to be fine. I've never run into the links not being colored/plated. But as long as there are the same number of links as the original...

Re: Another no-start SL2 (flooded)- ideas anyone?

Thanks for the ideas. The crank position sensor was one of the first things that I replaced (when this happened the first time). No check engine light this time. Isn't the IAT the same as the...

The headlights were both broken on the mounting tabs where the adjustment screws attach. I might be able to epoxy them back in place. They are still fairly secure in the location. I'll probably just...
