Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the cyclinders are consecutive left to right, 1-2-3-4. On the coil, however, it's 4-1-2-3, again looking left to …right. \n.
\nHope that helps. (MORE)
I just finished a front and rear brake job on my 2000 SL2. I first went to Just Brakes and they told me what was wrong and wrote up a huge estimate. I couldn't aff…ord that, so I went to the public library and checked out a Chilton repair guide. It has step by step instructions with pictures. Everything on the front discs are basically bolt on. The rear was a little trickier. I had to replace the wheel cylinders, so everything had to come off. Just take your time and only do one side at a time so you can look at the other. A good tip is to buy the rear spring kit and the tool to take the shoe clips off with. It took me about 3 hours to do everything and I saved over $300 Here is what I paid: $20 front pads $35 front calipers x 2 $16 rear shoes $12 wheel cylinders x 2 $11 spring kit $20 to have drums and rotors turned.
Good luck. (MORE)
Saturn recommends 5W30. But I put 10W30 in my 2002 Saturn SL2 now that it has higher mileage, and it runs like a gem. I use Quaker State High Mileage (with Slick 50) to give i…t additional lubrication. (MORE)
Hi, I have a 2000 Saturn SL in excellent condition and low mileage. My neighbors have the small size trailer, like 10' or 12', not sure, something small to sleep in and cook a… little and they are practically giving it away. Is my Saturn capable of towing such a weight? (MORE)
Overheating on any vehicle can be caused by many different problems. It could be as simple as a sticking thermostat or a worn water pump or even a build-up of deposits insid…e the radiator. Once water cooled engines have significantly overheated the heads will typically warp, causing even more problems. A warped head can allow combustion gasses into the cooling jacket of the engine, which will raise the pressure inside the cooling system and push coolant out of the engine resulting in... even more overheating. If that's the case, the only way to repair the problem is to have the head machined and replace the head gasket. If the overheating is caused by any of the other problems mentioned, just replace the offending part and the problem may go away. The Saturn S series engines were quite well designed and typically perform well, unless they are allowed to overheat. (MORE)
