Re: Massive Parts Lot - Orange SC and S-Series Parts For Sale

I have a TAM! The one on my car looks good, even at 220k miles, so I'm guessing it's not original. The seller's dad rebuilt the engine to replace the piston rings at some point.

Only 1 strut, but...

Re: Massive Parts Lot - Orange SC and S-Series Parts For Sale

I'll check on all these parts tonight and let you all know. I am 90% sure I have the TAM top motor mount. I have at least 1 good strut, but I think there's more.

Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

They only need to take care of the problem long enough for Cahvanuh to come pick it up :) Luckily it's still under warranty.

I agree about the crazy car market right now. I will drive this Saturn...

Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

Hello old friends,
The Fiat 124 ownership experience has been a bit less than satisfactory! Twice in 2 months it has sprung a leak and dumped it's coolant on the interstate, leaving me stranded...

Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

Thanks! I've always wanted to experience a Miata, so I've been test driving the ND (4th generation) Miatas for the past few weeks. I was set on an ND2 (2019+) which has about 30hp more than the first...

Well, I'm out of the running for "last Saturn Astra owner" after trading in for this Fiat 124 Spider! Best of luck to all of you. My Astra was a great little car and treated me well for 11 solid...

Re: Emissions

I replaced the EVAP purge valve solenoid about 350 miles ago and the code has not come back, so I think it's fixed!

Re: The last Saturn Astra owner.

128,500 miles and I'm starting to get real sick of all these CEL's recently. P0496, P2138, and the battery/security combo light on startup periodically. Feels like driving a BMW or something else...

Re: Error code P2138

It's been a month and about 1000 miles. P2138 has not come back since cleaning the UEC terminals (though I'm dealing with a separate EVAP code now).

Re: Emissions

I cleared the code and continued to drive. Code came back after 100 miles or so. Cleaning seemed to help, but I'm sure there's more crud inside where I can't get to.

I came across a write-up on...

Re: Emissions

I did some testing on my purge valve using some human-sourced air supply. First I tried to blow though the valve unpowered, and I could definitely pass air through it. That's not right. So the next...

Re: Testing the waters: OPC/VRX bumper for sale

Are you in Alabama? I might be interested, and located in Atlanta. I would want the side skirts too though. I do my own paint and bodywork on my project cars, so this doesn't scare me.

Awesome! I think it will look better if you include the rear part of the rear door frames. The body colored door frame seems to interrupt your design. Please let us know how it turns out, with...

My Astra just threw P0496 this morning in traffic. I filled up with gas last night about 30 miles ago. No issues in regards to how the engine runs. I deleted the code with my reader and will report...

Re: White puff of smoke under acceleration

That's very odd. Usually white smoke means coolant, typically from a leaking head gasket. The leak could be very slow, so you may not notice much change in the coolant level.

A failing (clogging)...

Re: Error code P2138

I haven't tried that yet, but am skeptical since it has been over a week since the last rain. The connector going to the pedal is in good shape though.

I'll take a look at the UEC if it comes...
