Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not
start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to
start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to
"fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking
of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :)
Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I
first heard about this solution.
Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed
it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while
the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started
fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this
week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running,
turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
Clutch Master and Slave Cylinder Install on 1998 Saturn SL2
First I want to apologize for the amount of movement you will be seeing in
this video. items I was replacing could not be seen very well if I was
using a tripod. so It was done by hand.
In any case, This is a video I made for the removal and install of the
clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder on my 1998 Saturn SL2. I have
been wanting to do this for a while because every time I pressed down on
the clutch pedal it would sound like finger nails on a chalkboard. It was
time to replace it and what a good opportunity to learn how to do yet
another bit of maintenance on my car myself instead of bringing it to a
mechanic. I went to my favorite site for Saturn maintenance and found the
Thank you ShawnV at SaturnFans for the excellent picture tutorial.
I figured I would try to do something different and make a video since that
was something I was looking for as well. Hope this helps.

Who races a saturn 4 door car?
My 1997 saturn SL1 converted. I took out the sohc and put in a dohc,
header, 2 & 1/2" Exhaust with Dynomax muffler. High voltage
MSD coils, 8.8 wires. It had a bored throttle body and true cold air
intake. I installed an egr block off plate and I used fuel injectors from a
Pontiac grand am gt. The transmission is the original 5 speed from the sohc
setup which has lower gearing. The car was dropped a little by cutting the
strut springs. The wheels are 16" aluminum. The guages were changed as well
with the motor swap as can be seen at 4:57 in the vid, so the readings are
accurate. Note how it pulls from 60 to 90mph. Pretty decent for a naturally
aspirated 4 cylinder.

Saturn Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and
clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a
excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was
not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind
the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.

1998 Saturn SL2, decent acceleration
1.9l Twin Cam pushing about 100HP to the wheels, keep in mind i was going
up an onramp, i've put a CAI and a turbo
muffler, wouldn't recommend getting the eagle muffler, sounds like crap!
