Re: Manual transmission compatibility

Any manual trans can be used with any engine. With '96-'02 you loose cruise control when putting a MP2 on a DOHC or MP3 on a SOHC.

Skip using '91, possibly '92 as well, parts. Those years are only...

Re: 1998 sc2 header

No catalytic converter in the manifold until Cali Emission '96's came around (even then it's to supplement the main CC under the car, not replace it).

True, 100% OEM '91-'92 header:...

Re: Is this the end?

Usually the CPS is like the starter, works when it's cold but doesn't when it's hot. Same with the TPS though that's often more intermittent.

Check the fuel pressure as well. Not sure what the...

Re: Is this the end?

The swap guide, which I'd believe over anything Haynes prints, says 2-4ohms on the injectors for '91-'95.

Sounds more like something plugged the catalytic converter rather than someone removed it....

Re: 1998 sc2 header

I'd be surprised if anyone did only the header. On a '93 SL2 I did the '92 header, AEM true CAI, dual intake camshafts, auto->manual swap with MP2, '94 SC2 PCM and 7lb Fidenza flywheel. Never did a...

Re: just replaced the valve body, new problems arose

There is a relearn process for shifting but each "gear" should work. The relearn process just reduces the "slam" into each gear, has nothing to do with where the gears are.

It's possible the shift...

Re: New member with 1992 barn find.

SL had no options by default (base radio is AM/FM only) while SL1 got PS and pass side mirror. SL could be optioned with anything making it virtually indistinguishable from a SL1.

Toe is pretty easy to set at home with flat/level concrete. Square up a string box around the car at the tire/wheel radius height and measure to both sides of the tire (front/rear "sides" not in/out...

Re: New rear discs. Calipers not taking fluid

I used to shove a 2x4 between the brake pedal and seat (sand corners so it doesn't cut the cloth). Not sure how long it needs to be other than roughly 1.5ft, there is some adjustment with the seat...

Re: New rear discs. Calipers not taking fluid

It can take a while to pump the fluid back to the rear, especially if the line was allowed to drain while you were swapping. Has to be done with the bleeder open otherwise the fluid & air in the line...

Re: Rear lug stud removal

Yes.
It'll be a bit tricky getting the new one in, there's only 1 area behind the hub that's long enough for the full stud to fit through.

Re: Why Saturn rear drum brakes have no stopping power.

If the single expansion point on the brake shoe is good enough to stop over 40 tons, it's good enough to stop 1.5 tons.

The proportioning valve is built into the master cylinder, ABS models have a...

Re: Worried engine seized, but hopefully just the Starter

You don't swap the bolts for a stud and nut? Odd. Same thread/size as the intake manifold; then you just hang it on the studs.

Re: Need a new radiator

$110 for an all-aluminum, manual trans (or add a dedicated trans cooler): https://www.ebay.com/itm/124588936602

Otherwise I believe Delphi and Silla are the best brands to get with Silla being...

Re: No power to wheels

I knew it had to be something odd, but I'd have expected a noticeable noise when it let go. Maybe the radio volume or attention span let you miss it, maybe it just didn't make a noise.

Too bad...

Re: Central locking -how to proceed attempting to diagnose and fix

Re: Rear Tire Wear

Camber & toe in the rear, just like the front. Pretty sure the caster is locked in without either bent struts or drilled strut mount bolt-holes.

Re: Noise, help identifying what it is.

I believe it wants 25-30psi minimum oil pressure while the idiot light turns off when it sees 7 psi. Too low of oil pressure wouldn't fully pressurize the hydraulic lifters which would lead to valve...

Re: Noise, help identifying what it is.

I'd blame something belt driven and focus on the tensioner and idler pulleys. IIRC the belt shouldn't deflect more than 1/2" with 7lbs of force.

Probably wouldn't hurt to get an oil pressure gauge...

Re: 97 SL1. Any advice on how to get the pressure line back on the power steering pum

If the fitting on the hose is stripped then yes, you have to replace the line (if there was enough slack in the line the fitting could be replaced for $5-$10).

Re: 97 SL1. Any advice on how to get the pressure line back on the power steering pum

Similar issue to brake line fittings. You either get the angle correct or it doesn't go together. If you're unlucky it strips out the hole or the fitting as well.

Try using 1 hand to hold the line...
