take the wheel and drum off the back and check that the shoes are not worn out on the edges..what happens is the end wears off first but as pressure is applied the shoe moves to where there is some pad left..severe brake dust can do it too. get the brakes checked as soon as you can.to clean and adjust the rear brakes is not that expensive.

Possibly a Coolant Temp. sensor unless it has been replaced recently?? Also check the connector with the yellow & black wire.It will be the lower of the 2 coolant sensors.The ODO Is mechanical & can only be serviced by replacing the complete guage cluster.Hope this helps

Unfortunately there are only two ways to do this. 1. open up the harness and trace & replace burned wire. 2. cut both ends of the burned wire and leave burned section in place, then run a new wire BUT you need to know if there are any branch circuits coming off it and destinations, and, if the burned wire has crossed over into any other wire you will not see it. Third option is to replace entire harness with a good one. (time intensive and expensive, but actually the best option) Note: you also need to find the reason it burned or anything you do will likely fry again!

Check your oil to make sure that there is no water mixed with your oil. Oil will be lighter in color and be frothy if there is water. If you have no water add a large can of Pet Milk to your cooling system water. Do this when the everything is cool to the touch because the milk should be added at the radiator cap. then drive it around for a while to give the therostat time to open and the milk to seal the pin hole. Works with leaky head gaskets and as temp fix for leaking freeze plugs. Hey, they use the same thing to repair steem boilers. Repete if needed. $1.00 fix.

Try using wd 40 or something to losen up the rust or if you have and know how to using a cetaline torch and heat it up tren try tapping it with a hammer it should break free,

it could be anything, hoses are common, have the system pressure tested to determine the cause of the leak, a dealer can do this.

the plug that you insert the lighter in to is bad but i do think there might be a inline fuses, follow the wires from the plug under the dash, if that's not it then your plug is bad

i assume that this is a sl2 or a sc2 both have a rear sway bar and possibly have binding sway bar links. remove rear wheel and find link that goes from rear sway bar to strut and make sure it is able to pivot. if they are binding they make a lot of noise and need to be replaced

the bolt hole pattern on a 92 is a 4 lug pattern and a 2004 is a 5 hole pattern. they will not fit.

the service light will indicate the computer is storing failure codes. Possibly a couple of codes related to a RiCH fuel mixture. Could be sensor or fuel injector related. Essentially what is happening is the engine is getting more fuel than needed, the reason for flooding. Holding your foot to the floor while starting prevents fuel injectors from squirting more fuel.

Fuse is in the passenger side kick panel fuse box. Look at the inside of the kick panel for exact location

Take a look there

the master cylinder has failed.

The problem is the Fuel Pump Sending Unit. The Fuse and Relay Both for the Guages are for the Entire Cluster. Wish there was an Easier way!

First locate the washer fluid resevoir, if you can remove it the pump is usually connected to the bottom or side of the resevoir. just remove and replace the pump and then reinstall the resevoir.

check the thermostat and heater core

could quite possibly be the water pump. There is a weep hole under the shaft, when the bearings go, the antifreeze leaks out at that point. Try checking w/ motor off using a small mirror to get a look under the water pump. If u see corrosion, or it's wet, get a new pump installed. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0

Might be fuses...

1992 Saturn SL1 | Answered on Dec 29, 2008

I would still think that its the battery you should definately have it tested .....but changing the starter sounds like a good idea...if you are doing it yourself (cheap).....but first make sure your battery terminals are clean and not corroded .....if so they are like 3 bucks at walmart
