2002 sl2 rpms very slow to drop when shifting manual transmission


Okay, check the TPS you installed for proper meshing of the components. Disconnect the throttle cable and feel action of spring for binding. Check throttle plate for carbon and dirt buildup, clean.

Now some TPS units have a slot on one end. This can correct the jump in RPM. Just slide the unit either way while the engine is running and see if it speeds up or decreases the idle position. Then tighten the mounts. There are some other adjustments possible but check for a bad intake leak.

This can be done with the engine running and using a spray bottle of water. Mist the seams of the intake gasket and around vacuum lines. Any change in RPM or stalling will prove there is a leak and allow you to fix it.

It is kinda simple. A air leak is like opening the throttle to let more air in. The engine will run faster. Correct the leak and the idle should be reduced.

1995 SC1 280K oil burner. Kept full. Previously 41 mpg, now 27 mpg over 1 year span. Oil smells like gas and so does the exhaust. Extreme loss of power. Will not idle. Runs rough at lower rpm, but...


If you are keeping the car forever, swap the engine with a rebuilt one. there are many for sale out there.
about $2k for a rebuilt with core credit. if you are really just keeping it for a year or two until the front "frame" collapses, buy a used engine out of a junkyard, look until you find one with less than 100k on it. there are many for sale on eBay but the shipping will kill you and you most likely have junkyards closer to home.

note if you have an SC1 means SOHC so you have to have a SOHC donor vehicle. SC1,SL1, or SW1
the engines were the same 96, 97,98 i believe. but do not get an older engine.

1997 manual transmission will not shift properly. It started by kicking out of 5th gear on the highway and now it is shifts correctly sometimes and sometimes it wont go into any gear at all. Does this...


I think you need to call around to junkyards and find a used transmission to fit your car. You can find sites by googling it as well. Most likely any saturn manual transmission 91-98 will fit, possibly even up to 2002 if you stay with the S series cars. They have an interchange which will tell you.
Take this time to replace the clutch too. The big caveat here is that the DOHC cars SL2 SW2 SC2, transmissions have a different final gear ratio than the SOHC cars Sl1, SC1 SW1 so you have to know which type you have and get one from a donor vehicle which is the same.

Just need to know how to aline timing markes 1.9l sohc 1994 sc1


"Just need to know how to aline...". What? The best advice that I can give you is to get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. Anything that will need aligning should be explained in that manual. Good Luck.

spray carb cleaner on the intake manifold near cylinder 1... common problem is the intake manifold gasket leaks vacuum causing a misfire...the not starting could be due to a faulty crank sensor

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
