  • FrankenSaturns 98 Coupe... Lets try motor #3, but wait, theres a catch!

    Finally, got the SC2 that I have been waiting for home... It only took about 2 weeks, 3 gallons of water, a handful of prayers, and removing the hood and driving real smooth on a nice cool night!









    And its already leaking... not oil, thats from the last change in the xB... but water I believe...



    Up first

    Head Gasket + Plugs



    List of must fix

    Tach doesnt read correct RPM
    Sunroof
    Weather Stripping on doors
    A good cleaning and vac'ing


    Then I dunno... Maybe run it for a while, the original plan was to do the 24 Hours of Lemons with it... I dunno though, it may be a little to nice to hack up...

    I like it too much for a Lemons car personally. If I wanted to destroy something it would be a $200 POC that was already almost destroyed

      Don't forget valve cover has a pretty mean oil leak 1+ quarts in 3k miles.

      Also the reverse lights do not work BUT it gets 12v at the trunk harness plug.

      Also the power door lock actuators are getting old and do not work if you use them several times in a row.

      last is the passenger side seat does not like to lock in place randomly.

      I am pretty sure the cluster just needs to be replaced to fix the tach

        while the head is off, maybe cut the valves round again and mill the head flat?

          Already have the fix for the valve cover...
          Reverse lights, who the hell needs those
          Door Locks, doesnt matter to me, its just odd having a vehicle with door handles on the outside
          Im not worried about the passenger seat, I cant drive from it, so its purpose in the vehicle is pretty pointless
          Im going to go to the yard maybe next week so I can see about a cluster

              oh also get a new lock for the passenger side of the car. My Vue key will open that door after someone tried to break into the lock.

                  What do you cover up the hole with? Couldn't someone open it easily that way too?

                              would you be interested in a shifter (it's either chopped or a short throw, can't recall, don't really care cause i'll never use it) and a WAI?
