Having fun with my new HIDs and Led lights.
I had notice that i had a flickering problem till i did some reserch online.
I needed a wire harness for my high beams. So i went out to my local auto parts store, picked up a relay switch wire harness for the relay,tape, wire, and some elbow grease. Picked a set of HID light kit from EBAY for a good price and went with it.
Here the Addy http://stores.ebay.ca/JAEDARAUTOMOTIVE?_trksid=p4340.l2563
I don't think you should go any hotter tho.. looks like you melt the plastics around your headlights.
Thanks for watching.

Saturn Transmission Line Pressure Control Solenoid Replaceme
This video chronicles the process of replacing a Line Pressure Control
Solenoid (inside the valve body) on a 1999 Saturn SL1 A/t w/80k Miles.

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a
problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on
the same battery. Thanks for all the comments!
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
Pimped Out Saturn SL2 (Subs, TV's, Pa System, TInt, Playstation, Blacked Out)
UPDATE: got new 18" Konig rims with Kumho tires, front license plate and
bar across "grill" in the front were both removed, subs and tv's were
swapped due to badd trunk rattle with NO solution. so tv's are in the
trunk, got "shag" carpet in the trunk and on the bk of the back seats,
black emblems, "Saturn Racing Team" decal on the top of the windshield,
painted calipers and drums black. repainted the dash, painted molding above
the windows black, Weapon-R cold air intake, and more. so pretty much I
need a new video ASAP. lol

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 No Start Case Study (featuring Beau Danner)
Join me and my son Beau on a field trip to Latorres Auto.
He is 8 years old, loves fixing things and has been begging to come with me
on one of my jobs. Of course he wanted to be on camera too.
This is the third car we worked on together. Cars one and two will be a
combined video and I will upload that as soon as I finish some follow up
video on the repair.
Here is the video on VRS Bypass Testing
