1997 Saturn SL2 Sunroof problem

Hello,
I have just purchased a 1997 Saturn SL2 with 125k miles. This is my first car and I'm super super excited. It has a sunroof which I love, but it does not work. When you press the button, (it's motorized) it makes an aweful noise. I was curious how to fix it and the cost of fixing it. I mean I'm not sure if I can fix it myself or if I have to take it somewhere. Thanks so much!

It sounds like the motor's gears went. I had the same problem. To see if it is the motor or track drop the headliner down a lil in the front near the map lights. Then push up on the center of the motors drive with a flat head screw driver and turn if the sunroof opens then it is the motor if not it is the track. You can buy new or use cost is up to you her is one on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/99-SATURN-POWER-SUNROOF-MOTOR-96-97-98-404-328_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50459QQihZ018QQitemZ280272955699QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohosting

1997 saturn sl2 dohc is there a timing belt or chain on it


These engines have a timing chain, not a belt. They also have nylon coated guides under the cover that wear. If you change the chain yourself, or have it done, check the guides as well.

1993 Saturn SL2 will not shift into highway gear


Saturn says and I quote

there transmission fluid is not to be changed after the first change at 6000 miles.

Now I say it should be changed at every 30000 miles. If changing out the fluid doesn't work then you need to go to a transmission repair shop.
