Saturn L300 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had a strap on engine until i could change a motor mount out. but it broke and the speedomiter stopped working at same time. where is this grounding strap?
The oil pan has a hole in it form running over a shovel, all of the oil leaked out.
The emissions sticker is unreadable and the haynes manual doesnt say. Ive seen .040 .044 and .045.
This is a friends car, I am out of state, she is experiencing oil leaks after an oil change, on passenger side of vehicle.
I have a check engine light that won't go off and I have the battery disconnected hoping to reset the computer. I replaced the MAF sensor last night. However I also have had the transmission shift hard at times when the check engine came on. There was an post about this exact thing that wasn't answered and I wanted to know if you could help. Thanks
First time ever happened can not take and put into neutral all electrical dead radio clock
When I turn off my saturn and park it in the garage, the garage smells like there is a fuel leak. I have inspected the fuel lines and they appear fine. Put a new gas filter and gas cap. The smell is real strong near the fuel port and underneath the passenger rear tire. I tightened up all the fitting and I'm now looking at the white plastic purge canister. When I looked at the old fuel filter it appeared to have black resadu mixed with the gas. Any ideas?
I've seen this posted several times, and there does not seem to be a clear answer. In our case, we've had the car 4 days and it hasn't started twice. It eventually started, but both times it was over an hour before the car would start. We thought it might be the anti theft system, but when we tried to recreate the issue, we could not. Car started fine. What could be causing this, or how can I best get it evaluated?
I found where to fill transmission but ther is no dipstick.
I guess I need a new body control module for my car. Had a diagnostic done and it said, "failure to communicate with body control" I just want to know where I can purchase a bod control module for cheap(er). My local autopart store doesn't have them and the dealers near by want $400-600.
P0727 IS THE CODE
I was told ther is no manufacturer specific rear cabmer adjustment.
There was cupping in the tires. I've had a four wheel alignment, replaced the front struts and springs, R&R sway bar links, and a new set of tires. The vibration occurs when breaking at 65mph. Slower speeds and extremely gentle breaking does not result in vibration. The vibration is felt through the break peddle and steering wheel.
Very difficuly right now when no fan to assist the defroster on these cool mornings. What would be the cost to repair this problem? Is there a relay or fuse that controls the fan, or does the whole fan assembly need to be replaced, and what is average repair cost?
THERE ARE NO INDICATOR LIGHTS ILLUMINATED ON THE FRONT OF THE CONTROL PANEL. IT DOES NOT SHOW THE OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE, I CANNOT ACTIVATE THE FRONT OR REAR WINDOW DEFOGGERS OR THE A/C OR HEATER.I HAVE CHECKED THE FUSES ALL ARE OK, I'VE REPLACED THE RELAY IN THE UNDER THE HOOD FUSE BOX. NO LUCK.
steering wheel locked due to belt melting
Was told that we might need to replace the horn pad. Where is it? How hard is it to replace? If we took it to An Auto Repair shop, what is the average cost?
2005 Saturn L300. All dome lights, dimmer lights, and mirror lights have stopped working. Checked all fuses in both panels and all are good. What else can I check or how can I determine if a relay is bad? Battery died approximately 3 weeks after this problem occurred although it was 4 years old. Replaced battery and rechecked fuses. All are still good.
During above average hot days the engine temperature creeps up when in city traffic but runs back to normal when I get above 35 mph or on days when the ambient temperature is below 80 it seems to hold it's normal temp. I have noticed that when this happens the electric radiator fan is not running? When it clicks on the temp stays normal.

I need to flush the system and can't find where to connect the air hose and put the flush in can you guide to where that is.
i notices that the engine is running hot as well
on the dip stick or oil filler cap. and water leaking from the same side of water pump and timing belt
3.0 automatic. began "slipping" on the way home from work, pulled it over and let cool for 2 hours. I was able to drive it home (about 2 miles)at that point with minimal slipping, but would not go above 30 mph. I did some research and checked the trans fluid...3 quarts later and it had still not overflowed the fill hole. More research and checked the radiator coolant, sure enough red and oily. Could anyone varify that this is probably a bad radiator, and what are the chances that the tranny is toast, its not making any noise...just sluggish and wont shift correctly. could a new radiator and coolant change fix...should I try it myself or does this need a pro??
How often should i have to replace a water pump
what does it cost for a transmission slipping problem or slipping hard in first gear ?
the car has 4 wheel disc brakes, no anti lock. did the front brakes no problem but the rear pads are held in by two pins and u just slide them out. how are those pins supposed to be removed? do you cut them? on one end there is a hole where you can tap on the pin, do you bang on them front that end until they slide out?
I replaced the alternator and the indicator light still comes on intermittently. I paid to have a full diagnostic check and was told that everything was fine but the light still comes on.
