So I've wasted a lot of money on those plugs I can't return now? heh. Figures.
Our 01 Saturn knows that code well--misfire on cylinder 1. I've worked my way down the troubleshooting list to intake manifold gasket leak which is reported to be a common defect for that code in aging SL1's. I haven't had the chance to dig out the old gasket yet. For us it's just a transient problem--mostly for other drivers in the family since I don't idle at stops much.
That code... does it prompt a Check Engine light? Or does the saturn just ignore it and move on? I'm curious now to see if I need to hook a code reader up (no scan gauge yet) and look for problems.
Check PCV valve.
can anyone tell me off the top of their head... if I average between 35 and 38 mpg (its winter)... I just netted 37.48 with little effort... what increase will I see running max sidewall pressure (44psi) in the 2002 Saturn SL 5M... any other quick easy safe mods I can make to net better milage... 40+ with little effort and expense? btw sorry for the thread jack... same car... nearly 179k... looking for some good milage!
I'd like to know what you're doing to get that kind of FE in winter! I can barely keep it around 34 after the winter RFG went into effect and the temp dropped.
Also, 44psi tires? are they stock or aftermarket?
