Older Gen SL2 Oil Loss through Valve Stem Seals Quantified - At least for Me

A few Saturnfan members and passers-by have tried to figure out if their SL2 oil loss was through valve stem seals or piston rings to help determine how they should tackle the problem. So sharing...

Re: Has anyone ?

Scott,

The last time I looked at a Red Line ION seat (front seat), it appeared to be a Recaro Trend made for Saturn. This was a long time ago. I have installed the Trend in my SL2 and have been...

Re: Suggestions with vibration

Although RC1488 wrote it's highly unlikely, I agree with Amp67. Check your intake manifold gasket.

The symptoms you described are exactly what I observed with my 92 SL2. Vibrated at idle, (scan...

Re: 93 SC2 occasional stalling

Yes, it could be. I've heard my friend talk about his daughter's SL2's fuel pump having issues only when it was cold from time to time. Your's may be temperature related too.

With 204k on the...

Re: 93 SL2 Failed Smog

The purge canister on my '92 (OBD1) is not as sophisticated as the one depicted in FDryer's link. There are no check valves built into the canister. I doubt the '93 has any too. Unless the SMOG...

Re: Exhaust repair

I know this doesn't answer your question. Not knowing exactly what's wrong with your flanges, I'll offer this suggestion for your '95 if your exhaust is similarly constructed:

On my '92, there...

Re: EGR/Purge solenoid

You won't get a quad driver fault (26) with a broken hose. So repair the hose and get the solenoid. Good to go!

Try Saturnparts.net for an OEM EGR solenoid. This link may take you there, and...

Re: A Look at Oil Analysis for 92 SL2

LOL! Yes.

I just finished talking with the analysis tech and he said that it probably wasn't dirt since the wear metals were low - then he asked if I had used any RTV. Well...this last charge of...

Re: EGR/Purge solenoid

I may be confident, but I would like you to be confident too. I would suggest that you still drive the car for a brief period of time with the vacuum line plugged as suggested in the "for what it's...

Re: EGR/Purge solenoid

Since you have had the 26 and 32 codes for years and they appeared at the same time(?), then the bucking issue is going to point, 100% of the time from my experience with my own '92, to the EGR...

If you haven't repaired the vacuum line to the EGR valve, crimp off or plug the one that you broke to minimize the chance of air being sucked in,...

Re: Failed smog...

Looking at your numbers, the car appears to have a functional EGR valve... the 25 mph numbers are way down from the 15 mph numbers.

Why did you have the cat replaced two years ago? If it was due...

Re: shaved my head .030 flat face valves intake cam swap and now runs like a pig

I'm not familiar with your modification either, but what stands out to me is the shaved head of 0.030". If it runs like a pig now, it might just be your knock sensor retarding your timing. Pump in...

Re: The future of fuel economy in the US.

The Gov't already taxes our gas. The Gov't also subsidizes our fuel too - ethanol.

It was noticeable how many of the masses in my area slowed down close to the speed limits when prices jumped a...

Re: still poor MPG

If it were me, I wouldn't calc fuel mileage until that injector cleaner was used up, followed by two fill-ups of at least 9 gallons each time. Once that period has passed, I would pull the plugs and...

Re: 93 SL2 failed smog test!

You may have EGR valve issues. It may be failing to close at the lower speeds when the EGR solenoid gets the close command from the PCM. This would cause your low end stall/sputter. To verify,...

Re: PCM or not?

For what it's worth, I recall the way to check the back pressure chamber is to generate a vacuum signal directly to the EGR valve with a MityVac while the engine is off. Build enough vacuum so you...

Re: Failed California Smog Test

It's interesting that your area's limits are 93/59 for low speed/high speed HC ppm. In Sacramento, they were 130/105 for my 92 back in 2005. My vehicle tested at 41/18 for 15mph and 25mph...
