Saturn ION (Redline) Beating a Ferarri (FM3)

This is a Saturn ION in Forza Motorsport 3 I am working on to eventually become a drifting car. The paint job is still a work in progress and the tune is still a few parts shy of where I want it. But for a few kicks I took it out to test its current "unfinished" status and was pleasantly surprised to see it whipping some stiff competition at straight up racing. I eventually managed second in a two lap race but would have probably taken first had the race gone for another 500 feet lol. I lost to a newer Ferarri so my goal is to get this Redline to a point where it will eventually come in first...

2007 Saturn Ion Coolant Light
In this video, We will show you one way to troubleshoot the Coolant Alert or a coolant light on most Saturns. This is a common issue and creates a bit of confusion or trouble. If temps are still somewhat reading, and you have this alert, typically here is the cause. Shoutout to the ShoRyders in Tucson, celebrating their annual coming up this weekend. BE THERE.

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. Note: I am not a mechanic, these videos are meant to be for informational purposes only. Should you follow the steps shown you do so at your own risk.
