#1216 of 1418 saturn coupe eating bearings
Feb 07, 2006 (7:10 pm)
i have a 2001 sc2 three door coupe. I bought it off a friend a year ago. I drove this car quite a bit before i bought it and loved it. 40 miles/gal and fun to drive Since I have owned it the air conditioner, key assem, sun roof broke and it has started eating passenger side wheel bearings to the tune of one a month or so. I have had new bearings and used hubs put in. My next step is a new hub also although I can't beleive that three hubs had something wrong with them Have a good mechanic and i watched him put the last set in. Does things right so i am not concerned with him, i.e. pressing on the bearing and not the race. Any suggestions? Saturn dealer has no info, mechanic is at a loss as am I.

Hey, i have a 01 SL2 and i have had for two years now, wondeful car no complaints until now. My rear end of my car is making tons of noise, like creaking sound, its loud to, can't really ignore this sound. It isn't a banging but its more noticable in stop start situations. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and if they have any ideas on what i can do to fix it.

i am having trouble with my Saturn SL-1 1995 model.
It stalls at intersections or when you have to slow down to turn actually when it drops down under 1000 rpm's.The service engine soon light comes on right before the car starts to act up..we have had it put on a computer check and it said the EGR valve but we would like to know if there could be something else that could be giving us problems...the car also revs up to almost 5000 RPM' on it own sometimes.

Mar 20, 2006 (7:55 pm)
Ok i have a 2002 sl1 with 28000 miles on it and the other day out of know where my ac doesnt blow cold air so that could be in the need for some freon or it could be related to the second problem about two days later all of a sudden my emergency light comes on and gas gauge goes all weird and is usually at empty but sometime at other spots also my temperature gauge is only reading zero and it seems to bounce along with that the lights on the ac button and rear defroster doesnt work...so my question is is this a huge electrical problem or just a simple fuse problem...any help would be extremly greatful as i am a poor college kid and i am trying not to spend to much money...oterwise i love the car and have had other saturns in the family that are still running with over 120k
#1223 of 1418 Help!!! In need of Fuel Presure Regulator for 92 SL1
Mar 29, 2006 (5:12 pm)
Symptom: Throddle hesitation on accelerations once driven enough for the engine to reach normal engine running tempature. Afterwhich I have to pump accellerator to overcome hesitation typically at every light, or place the car in neutral while slightly reving to maintain an idle
state. Also if I turn the car off and attempt to turn it back on it has a hard time achieving an idle state with out some major pumping of the accellerator to get it to a point where the car can be safely shifted into the automatic gear needed.
**Now heres what I got from my local Saturn dealer**
Today I picked up my 1992 LKO 1.9LL4 Saturn SL1 Sedan from my local Saturn dealer and was told it seems my problem is the Fuel Presure Regulator. Great to know ... now for the bad part they (Saturn) no longer carry the part and know of no third party mfg. that makes it.
So here's what I'm thinking: One I posted this message to see if anyone has any recommendations and secondly I figured possibly start looking at auto salvage places.
Well thats my delema... Any better ideas are welcomed...
Oh, and can some one describe where the Fuel Presure Regulator is located on this car... I just want to be sure of what I am looking for when I start my Salvage hunting...
Thank you much folks...
Pat thanks for the heads up for the need to repost this message...

my roomates chrysler did something very similar. it checked all the fuses (there may be two or three different fuse boxes), but found that it was a bad connection at the battery terminal. it got corroded with a green oxidized coating. the green stuff doesn't conduct electricity.
hope that helps.
#1225 of 1418 high pitched sqealing noise
Apr 03, 2006 (9:17 pm)
I own a 99 Saturn SC2 and I LOVE it! Any ways, about a month ago I was driving when I heard this noise that only lasted a few seconds and stopped. It happened a few times after that, so I thought it was the brakes, (thats what it reminds me of). So I took my car to the shop and they laughed and said "ma'am, your brakes are brand new all around." I described the noise and they wrote it off telling me that sometimes brake dust causes cars to do that and not to worry. Well, I didn't hear that noise again until a few days ago when it was really warm out. It was loud and continuous and squealed louder when I applied the brakes. The next day it was cool outside and it didn't make a sound! I am soooo confused! has anyone experienced this before?? What is it??
