1991 Saturn SL Problems

Brakes -- Verified

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

Engine -- Verified

The timing chain may come into contact with the timing cover, causing noise in the engine. Replacement of worn timing chain components will be necessary to correct this concern.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The alternator may fail causing the charge light to illuminate. Driving with this condition will eventually cause the engine to stall due to low system voltage.

The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.

Drive Train -- Verified

The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.

Three set's of tires,two mufflers,one Radiator fan motor,1 gas tank strap,two brake jobs with new front rotors,one Idle control module,Rear brake lines replaced,one idler arm bushing,one fan belt,three Batteries,one used A.C.Compressor! Needs: New Power steering pump. Main shaft seal leaking oil onto fan belt destroying the new belt. Automatic seat belt relay switch under rear of console needs to be hit with fist to activate. Ignition key assembly wearing out. Not much power going up hills, sometimes have to go to passing gear. But with almost forty (40 MPG) with a light foot under 50MPH. I'll try to get another 50K from it.
