Input/output shaft nut replacement on 99 Saturn SL2
This is a step by step procedure on how to replace and re-torque an Input
shaft nut on 99 Saturn SL2.
Note: You need to re-torque the output shaft nut as well. Also, a new or
rebuild valve body is needed in order to solve the reverse slam
problem. I bought one from ebay for about $124 from
( IMPORTANT: There was a typo on the 1st slide
Input shaft nut = 111 ft-lb, not 11 ft-lb)
As of today (1/14/2010), No reverse slam, no delay shifting :)
My buddies Saturn SC2. Recently put the wheels on and wanted to lower the
car a bit more to get them fitting like they should. Wheels are Rota IKR's
