Went to replace trans filter and it came off in just 1 turn. Previous owner jury rigged gasket so filter would just go on, end of threads stripped. Need to replace threaded pipe fitting that threads in the side of the transmission that the filter screws on to. Cannot find part number or scrap dealer that has one, not able to find on Delco's trans parts list. Thanks
Car would idle rough when cold. Changed PCV and MAP, then put in coolant temp sensor. Car runs fine, but temp gauge doesn't work now. Took off and turned 180* and sprayed with carb cleaner thinking it may have a coat of anti freeze on it. Do I need a bigger hammer? Thanks for the advice!
I changed the PCV and the MAP, but still no better. Runs fine when engine is warm.


95 Saturn battery starter good, won't start.acts like the neutral safety switch, Location switch for adjustment?

When the Saturn shifter is in park....engine won't turn over; when moving the shifting lever back and forth...hit a correct spot it will start. What do we need to correct the problem. Battery/everything on the engine is okay......what's the fastest way to correct this? Need advice.....location switch for adjustment? Never had a problem with this prior.....everything's original.. Thanks for any help you can give me.





I had driven my car earlier in the day with it working just fine, but when I drove it to work the shifter was a little sticky. When I tried to leave I discovered that my shifter wouldn't go into any gear except 2nd or 4th. I pushed it out of the parking lot and drove it home (just a few blocks) and by the time I made it back it wouldn't go into any gear at all. I'm hoping it's just a problem with the linkage, but am unsure. IF it's only that and not the transmission, then about how much would that be to fix?
what would make my battery light, engine overheat lights come on, and the steering to be stiff? this just began this afternoon.
WHAT EMISSION PROBLEM DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE I APPRECIATE ANY HELP AT ALL
the car sometimes goes dead when at stop sign or light. codes read bad fuel tank pressure sensor
DO I CLEAR CODE OR WILL THAY CLEAR THEN SELF
My car started to hesitate during freeway driving the other day. I have been watching it but I am not finding any common circumstance in which it does this. No error codes have been given, I just bought a new battery, no difference between day/night behavior nor uphill/downhill, I just started testing to see if the little switch (performance/normal) makes it happen less or more and so far it seems like less when in perf. position. It also seems like I am getting better gas milage but I could be mistaken. Any help is appreciated.
If I play with it for a couple of minutes it will eventually turn. What's the fix?
It always stalls in forward gears but will start back up fairly easy
replaced the starter and the head gasket
I want to pay out of pocket and need to know how much and where he could go to fix it. the bumper looks like it could possibly be repairable but I would like to know the most i would have to pay to replace it. I am a college student under my parents insurance and im hopeing to just pay it myself. the bumper is rubber or plastic. thanks u guys!
My car cuts off when I'm driving, no system light comes on, the car just stops. So far, it starts back eventually, but I would really like to have some idea of what's going on. It's not the battery, the lights still work. When I turn the key, it makes no sound at all--no click, nothing. It eventually will crank, right now--but it's unpredictable in how long it stays off. I'm scared to drive it right now, please help if you can.
