Question about 1993 Saturn SL2

1 Answer

Noise coming from lower left side of car

When I start my car up in the morning the car starts normally. However, when I start driving there is a noise coming from the left side, in the car the noise seems to come from the lower left side of the engine, or wheel. As I continue to drive the noise goes down, but doesn't go away completely, just gets a bit quieter. If I stop the car completely and do grocery shopping. I can start the car again and the noise is gone and the car runs pretty smooth for the rest of the trip back home. My brakes are good. The steering is good. My a/c went out several months ago. The radiator has been replaced. The serpentine belt was checked several months ago and I was told it good. We had some flooding a while back and I dont know if the problem started sometime after that. Does saturn have boots, I know dumb question. Any ideas.

I don't know about the boots, but my 93 Saturn SL2 was doing the same thing and I found out it was the clutch.

With the driver's door open (not while driving) look behind the lower door hinge and you will find a bunch of dead leaves trapped. The leaves rustle in the breeze as you drive. It takes a repurposed clothes hanger and maybe a vacuum cleaner with crevice attachment to get everything cleaned out.

You'll need to find out where the noise is coming from first.
Is it making the noise before you start driving the car ?
Does it sound like its coming from the passenger side of the engine ?
It could be the serpentine belt or something mechanical.

When is really cold, and vehicles with non electrical power steering start for the first time after a good period of inactivity the power steering pump tents to wine, that is normal, some other cars or almost all the cars when they pass 100.000 miles develop a little metallic noise that goes away when the oil pump distributes and lubricates all moving parts inside the engine when the car starts first thing in the morning in a really cold morning.

I'd say there's no grease left in the CV joint boots, if it's front wheel drive. Something you should check right away, as your car has about reached that age, and if you run it without grease in the boots, you'll eat up the joints in a big hurry, and that's costly and dangerous as well.

1990 Riviera Shop installed wrong transmission? no overdrive


sounds like they replaced your tranny with a 3 speed one. while it's not going to hurt anything, you won't have over drive and get better gas milage as you would with overdrive.but there should not be any looseness in your shifter. they should fix that right away. slipping out of gear can be very dangerous. as for the rest, it sounds like they did very shoddy work to say the least.
