    Thanks, however the brake fluid is full. Any ideas?


  • horsesofthes Apr 21, 2009

    I just went ouot there and now the brakes are working. But I am not driving it until I have someone look at it. Could the master cylinder be failing?

Open up the hood and locate the brake fluid reservoir and see if there is fluid init if there is no fluid the brake line has busted somewere inbetween the master cylinder and one of the 4 brakes. to find were it is broken fill the resivore full of fluid and put the cap back on now have some one pump the brakes slowly and you should see a stream of fluid coming out some were. this is were your line is busted. if you located the brake you can go to an auto parts store and get a compression coupling to splice in a new part of the brake line.
hope this helps you out
please leave me a rating
Thank you

I have a 1998 saturn SL2 with a LL1.9LL4 engine, want to switch out with a 1998 saturn SW2SW wagon with a 16 valve twin cam will this work? SL2 engine blown, SW2SW ****** is going!

If you are replacing a DOHC 1998 engine with another DOHC 1998 engine yes it will work. Saturn only made two engines from 91-99 and they all had the same block, difference some were SOHC and others were DOHC. The number "1" after SL or SC or SW means SOHC while the number "2" after SC or SL or SW means a DOHC.

Note if one is an auto and the other manual you are going to have to swap the flywheel/ring gear stuff over.

1998 saturn wagon, what type of coolant?

1998 saturn will have Dex-cool (orange) from the factory. If you are adding, you must use this type. If you are completely draining and refilling, you can use whatever type you like. Either will work, you just can't mix them. There is a universal type available that can be used with either type.
