Since then I've done 2 oil changes, replaced oil filter, new filters, drained and flushed radiator fluid also buying new reservoir cap for it, new cat converter, tune up, new spark plugs, etc....I fell in love with this car the moment I layed eyes on her. I take care of her, wash and wax her, dont drive her far til I get her in tip top shape or as best atleast and I selling her is out of the question. I refuse to give up on her. Theres one thing that shes been doing and I would really love and appreciate it if someone can share the knowledge they know and help me out.

Okay so shes automatic and when I drive her at a high enough speed where shes suppose to shift into gear...she matter how fast or no matter what. My friend thought for sure it would help with the gear shift once the exhaust and cat converter were fixed but no. She stays in first gear and the last time i tried to drive on the freeway(i really didnt want to but i had no choice) i got off at my exit and smoke came from hood and acceleration was slipping. I could still press on it enough tho where it would move very slow but no faster then that. Where the transmission dipstick is at there was fluid on floor beneath car. Not big spots/puddles but half dollar coin size spots. Im assuming driving the distance i did while she was in first gear is what caused all of that.

Im also guessing and kinda hoping it has something to do with a censor or idk something that isnt too drastic or where someone basically tells me shes not worth putting anymore time or money into her cause that would break my heart. Sorry for writing so much but please hmu with any other questions! Thanks.

rad fan won't turn on until temp. red lines why

PSI should be 180 psi

car overheats at idle

ITt would have a slightly high idle that would slowly go down as you came to a stop. From about 2200 rpm to about 900.

Car still idols high for a period of time before going down sometimes this doesn't happen doesn't matter if it's hot or cold what else could be wrong

The engine is in sideways.

The window is completely gone. Is there a lift up type for my sc2 saturn? If not all the parts and the window

My car starts and revs fine for only a few seconds then tries to die out when I give it gas and spits and sputters when I put it in gear

My rpm gauge when start and drive is between 2 and 3 how can I adjust

The left brake light, and center brake light on the trunk, and turn signals all work fine. It's only the right rear brake light that won't work.

So i was replacing the master slave cylinder push rod in my 1999 sc2 when i knocked it loose and it fell into the transmission!!! any idea on how to get pull it out without dropping tranny?

I just can't get the door handle thru the panel hole. If I unlatch the locking bars, there isn't enough room to get in behind the panel to reattach. Please help asap. I'm the original owner and have been fixing this vehicles minor issues. I have had it stored for over four years. Brake lines corroded and are being repaired this Friday, October 23, 2015.

I've gotten new spark plugs and o2 sencors what could it be ?

When I accelerate from a complete stop my front passanger tire feels like it spins a little or shutters for a few seconds before it stops and accelerate s normally.

changed brake pads everything was good . 2 days after every time i turn right makes a sound like something is dragging or like metal on metal ( sound= ting ting ting ) . ive spent 3 hours underneath car making sure there was nothing loose . please HELP!!! its driving me nuts!!!!

bled line, changed fuel filter and it is still switching between gears, just barley moving though

Here is the scoop I have replaced the following parts in the past 3 months or so. Everything is up front ...Both crontol arms which would include the ball joints, both front wheel hub assemblys new rotors,brakes,brake calipers,inner and outer tie rod ends, brake caliper hoses ,driver side axle .... rear drums and shoes car has been lined up twice in past 4 months and now when I hit my brakes the car pulls to one side and the wheel cocks to the opposite side plus while taking a turn the car will jerk then settle back on once straight again also shakes like a bitch doing anywhere from 60 to 75 mph. Any insight or help would be awesome not sure what the problem is

My daughter's SC2 has 163,000 miles on it. I just bought it and replaced the battery, starter, alternator, wiper motor and hot wired the fan (because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it) and the AC pump and serpentine belt. As soon as we started using the AC it began sputtering and dying right after she left the house. We have drowning in Denver in rain the past month, I thought maybe there was water in the lines and put some Lucas fuel treatment in. It seemed to work until it got hot outside again and now everytime she leaves the house with the AC on it dies. The RPM's go up too. When the car dies, she pulls over and turns everything off and it usually starts right up. today it took a little longer.

Can't get it to pass smog same codes
