Default 1995 Saturn SL2 twin cam 4 speed automatic, for repair or parts


1995 Saturn SL2 twin cam 4 speed automatic, for repair or parts
located Rochester, in Upstate NY
Contact: stevepts "at" yahoo (dot) com

The Good.....
- teal blue
- good interior
- good exterior
- all lights & signals work
- great stereo sound
- new radiator, windshield, fuel pump, control arms, tie rods, ball joints,
rt front wheel bearing, coil packs, shift pack solenoids
- AirCon equipped
- 3 of the 4 tires are very good
- basically a great little car, but the transmission is crap

The Bad....
- valve cover gasket needs replacing (about $20 plus a 20 minute swap in the driveway)
- will need new rotors, but they are cheap and a simple swap out replacement job
- cabin headliner has fallen, but I still have it, just haven't had time to re-install it
- L rear shock strut is going
- rust under rear door jambs
- autotragic gearbox is bad
- engine cradle passed inspection this year, but you might want to look at it

I stopped driving it once the gearbox stopped working. I have no engine lift, etc, so
I'm not replacing it. Time to move on to a Hybrid.

A good project car, or car for parts.
26mpg city, 34mpg highway, I've tracked it meticulously over the years, tankful to tankful
265K miles on the body, but the motor was replaced before I bought it, and it's now on
it's 3rd gearbox.

I was going to fix the above issues until the gearbox reverse gear stopped engaging.

Saturns are great cars for the right person, they are cheap to fix and cheap to run.
Parts are real cheap and plentiful for this car, and if you are handy, this car is
the car for you.

I will put it on Craigslist eventually, but I figured I'd give the Saturn lovers first crack at
it, as you'd appreciate it better than the averaged Joe.

I've seen guys on these sites that love working on and modding these cars, so for them my type of
problem would be trivial, for them this would be a great project car, or a great source car for
parts.

Replacement gearboxes are cheap for this car, can likely be had for about $150-$250
from a salvage yard. Or if you are good with cars, you can probably track down the
problem in this one. If you call or e-mail, I'll explain the issue and history, as well
as any work I've done on the car, and attempts at fixing the gearbox. If you live locally
and can do local pick up, come on by and we'll go over everything in detail (Rochester,
in upstate NY).

The car is completely stock with no funky engine mods or suspension butcherings made to it.
The car can be converted to a 5 speed stick, for those who are clever, which is what I
would recommend, as the issue seems to be with the automatic gearboxes.

If I don't sell the car whole to someone willing to rescue it, I'll just part it out as
it has terrific condition parts; like all the exterior trim and lights, hood, trunk lid,
doors, windshield, window glass, beautiful teal blue body panels, mirrors, gas tank, fuel
pump, fuel lines, radiator, and a terrific interior including stereo.

I'd rather find a good home for it than have the car crushed, it has all
those great parts.

I have a few more pictures, but I've reached my posting limit. If you have any questions,
please reply to this ad. Not sure how PM'ing works....

Asking $500 or will deal.

Thanks for your interest.

Can't do that. Site won't let me post an e-mail, something about my post count isn't high enough.

Will try the other forum mentioned tho...
