I just got an oil change with the mobil oil 5/30

The 89% oil life should be reset manually. It doesn't affect the actual life of the oil.

Is my fan supposed to remain on after I turn off the car

The fan will stay on until the motor temperature reaches a low enough temp. This is to prevent damage. As long as it does not stay on for more than a few minutes it is normal

After jump strart, radio is not working.

there is probably a fuse on the radio. also check all fuses not just radio ones.cig lighter fuse may be involved. but check them all because some fuses feed other fuses and are not labeled as such on fuse box

2008 Saturn Sky Redline - starting issues. If I

I have the same problem, found that when it rains heavy or I wash the Saturn Sky; water runs down over the computer under the hood on the driverside. There is a drain port just above the computer so water runs down through the drain port onto the computer wiring shorting out this computer, when the wiring dries out the electrical problems are fixed. but the water can do damage to the computer which comtrols the radio and many other electronics inthe Saturn Sky. I know this because this happened to me. after washing my Sky all the electronics went crazy, found the water on my computer wiring. after a couple of times of the wiring shorting out the radio started comming on by its self while the car was shut off causing the battery to die over night. What a crazy place to put a drain port over top of a computer and its wiring. A cover needs to be made and placed over the top of the computer to prevent this from happening again. If you are having a problem getting GM to fix the problem; wash the car using a garden hose and let alot of water run down over the window on the driverside so the water can run down the water port under the hood onto the computer and wiring, this should create the same problem then take it back to the GM dealer and show them the water problem. They can then refuse to correct the problem. Good Luck. O yes one other problem you need to know about, if you don't have mud flaps on the front wheels the paint will chip real bad on the rear lower quater pannels and it will cost you a good dollar to have it repainted.

08 sky turbo cold air injection sounds like shop vac

Yes it is. Just be sure it is not whining because of a leak in the intake or exhaust side of the turbocharger.

Electronic Stability Control

Try disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for several minuets..
That will re-set everything..

If that does not work - you really should have the dealer check it out before the warranty expires..

If you go unplugging things - you risk voiding your warranty..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)

I have a saturn sky redline 2007

The Decal should be on the door jamb, just beneath the latch striker. If not there, check above the driver's visor. You might check with a local Saturn dealer regarding the missing decal. Maybe there were more than just one missed and they're aware of the problem. (they therefore owe you a decal, or they know where it really is)
The tires have a MAX PSI number on the sidewalll where the size etc. is shown. For obvious reasons, don't exceed that pressure. Running with between the max and 5 PSI under I would consider to be safe until you find the right answer.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Completely shut down

Hi Kraz8,

Thanks for asking me about your Saturn.
Saturn makes a great car, but they do have problems. I'm not sure I completely understand what you're experiencing though, especially the 'in the basement' thing. If what's happening is 'nothing' when you try to start it, your battery is charged and the key is acting weird then I can probably help.

I had a similar problem on my 94 SL2. Turn the key…..Nothing.
Even worse, it was intermittent, the worst type to troubleshoot.

At first it was rare. Pulling out the key , putting it back in and turning usually worked.
Over time it got progressively worse and stubborn.

Then one day it wouldn’t start for anything.

My car has an alarm with a ‘starter kill’. My first thought, alarm malfunction. So I located the two wires (they can be any color) going from the alarm module to the steering column. They are usually labeled appropriately on the module. I used a small jumper wire (alligator clips) to short them at the alarm. If the alarm was the problem, this would fix it. It didn’t.

Time to take apart the steering column.

The key tool will be a 7 or 8mm socket. Take off the two piece steering column shroud to expose the wiring.

On the left side, directly opposite the ignition, you’ll see a piece of round plastic held on with two bolts. This is really the ignition switch.
Take out the bolts (again 7 or 8mm).
Take out the two plugs (blue and white) from behind it.
Take off the switch.

Plan A: (For most people)
Replace this. Bring it with you to the parts store to compare it.
Bring it home. Bolt it on. Plug it in. Turn the key.

I can’t tell you how much it was , since I used …

Plan B: (For the deservedly cocky)
I took the switch apart and cleaned the contacts.
They were burnt. I scraped them clean, re-assembled the switch and tested it.

If you need me to explain Plan B, use Plan A.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes. Any other problems, click the ASK button.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate.

Replaced turn single switch twice in one month still won't cancel after turns.

Have you checked the actual steering wheel. The trigger for the self cancel is the ring of notches around the base of the steering wheel. There might be something stopping these notches triggering the switch.
