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

Why are you questioning the title? It'll be signed over to whoever buys it.

I did mess with the parking brake today and got the wheel to shift rearward that way. I've got all the parts pulled...

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

I have not really heard much out of the suspension, even traveling on I-69 that is absolutely horrible.



No I would not expect to get a private party parts car price from a yard...... for a...

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

I would think the regular brakes being used during driving would be a bigger force. I haven't been coasting to a stop.

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

2000 blue SL2, auto

SO..... The other day I heard scrapping as a pulled into work. After parking, I found I had a rusted through gas tank strap that was dragging. No huge deal, as long as the...

Re: Apply something to ignition module?

You're using 2 digit codes, so I'm guessing you're OBD1.... I have no idea if your ICM and coils are the same as my 2000, but I don't recall using any thermal paste. I used dielectric grease on the...

Re: batt post and jumpstarting

I found these while Goggling:

I don't have these, but rather the brass extenders for connecting more wires, on my truck. I put the second big positive...

Re: batt post and jumpstarting

I found a torque spec for sideposts at one time. It was not very much.

Re: Fabricate replacement metal steering lines on steering rack?

Are you not able to find the right lines on Rockauto? I see both pressure and return hoses for my 2000 SL2.

Re: Oil From the Exhaust Pipe

Not too bad.... when my trunk was leaking it was used motor oil my brother in law left there. I drove around with cat litter in my trunk for awhile to soak it up. It was easier than I thought to...

Re: batt post and jumpstarting

They've probably been over-tightened and cracked the internals letting acid out. I had acid traveling down the inside of the wire on my truck, so I ended up replacing the wire.

They are a bit...

Re: Cleaned Up

"Dirty al ready".... LOL, I don't think I've ever washed my car. I have been contemplating it recently, Though. :D

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Today was new air filter day. The old one wasn't terrible. I don't drive through much dust, and I can go years without really needing one, but I found it on Wholesale Closeout on Rockauto, so why...

Re: I Might Need New Plugs...

Wow, I don't think my originals looked that bad when I changed them out... I assume they were originals, they had GM part numbers, and I don't think said AC on them. I think they were NGK with GM...

Re: Mixing orange and green antifreeze

Well, it's time to flush your system out now.

Mixing green and orange coolant is a bad idea. It's one of the things that is supposed to gum up the system. It would have been much better to be a...

Re: Engine Oil Filter - OEM - Walmart

Champion was purchased by 1st Brands, which had been Trico (wipers). Fram is also owned by 1st Brands.

Re: Auto slam in DRIVE and reverse

I passed on the car.... replacing the solenoid didn't look hard, but I don't want to replace things that I don't know are wrong, and I wasn't seeing a lot of definitive advice/diagnosis in my search.

Re: Is it possible to cut a sun roof?

Yup.... mine will open, but may not close. It's rusty and has leaked at some point.

Re: What is this and where do I get it?

I hate buying/opening up RTV, because I usually only need a little dab! Last time I used it was for the valve cover gasket over the spot where the timing cover meets the head. I found a tiny packet...

Re: air filter recommendations?

Lol, it's been decades since Meijer's has had the Thrifty Acres as part of their name.

I would not expect the Ultra-Power to be a Wix filter as many of the lower-tier brands use the same numbers...

Re: air filter recommendations?

That must be a year thing..... RA shows Gen3 SOHC and DOHC being the same. I can't image GM/Saturn using different filters/boxes for the two engines.

I'm just using a Champion Labs filter. When...

Auto slam in DRIVE and reverse

I've searched and am not sure I'm finding what I need. I looked at an 2002 SC2 today, that's in better shape then my SL2 in every way except the transmission. (even the sunroof and AC works!)

Re: When low mileage means squat.

Those look like fun. Maybe I should keep an eye out for something like that. My family has property on a small lake, and something like that would be perfect. I also don't live too far away from a...
