Ion Redline Racing Compilation
This is a compilation of some of the races I had this year in my car with
some of my friends. First video I have ever edited, but I think I did
decent for just using movie maker.
Saturn 1991-1999 1.9L Clutch Hydraulic System
We're replacing the clutch master and slave cylinder on a 1999 Saturn. 1st
we remove and replace the master and slave cylinder then I show a prefilled
clutch hydraulic release system to service this Saturn with.
Saturn SL2 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (DOHC)
This is a long one, Sorry, but it pretty much goes through the step by step
and shows some of my mistakes so you don't make them.
Also, verify that the gasket fits. If you have the time then I would
suggest bringing the valve cover in with you(assuming you bought it from a
local parts store) and make sure it fits before leaving. I must have gotten
one from a bad batch because the first one was too big. You will see that
in the video. The second try was the right(ish) one. apparently it is a
known problem that the molding process is incorrect for these gaskets but
luckily they are rubber so you can just remold it to fit.
Also a word of caution: at some point you may see me use carburetor cleaner
on the plastic valve cover. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner on the plastic.
The main ingredient is Acetone(which I also use to clean) and it has the
ability to melt the plastic. Use another solvent that is friendly to
plastics like mineral spirits.
Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total
doing this in tools and parts.

Saturn ION Pedders Xa Coilover Install.f4v
Alan's autocross Saturn ION gets a set of Pedders Xa coilovers installed
DIY style in a driveway. This video serves as a Do-It-Yourself guide. After
watching this video if you are not confident you can do the install on your
own, don't do it without the assistance of a more experienced DIY mechanic
or take your car to a Pedders shop. Overall, it is not a complex install.
If you have changed struts on a car you should be able to handle this
