Having problems with your Saturn L-Series ?

I want to know if a 1996 and a 1998 saturn is interchangable body and motor wise

Answers :

Most all body and interior parts will interchange 96-99. engine however is different, you can put a SOHC engine into another car made for SOHC. you cannot put a DOHC engine into a saturn made for the SOHC engine or vice versa. the transmissions have different gear ratios. and the engines changed between 98 and 99 so you may have some problems swapping between those years.

Hi, I have a 2006 Passat and the blower motor is not working on any position. If I turn the knob to 1 - 4 and switch the AC button on it lights up and as soon as i turn the know to position 0, the AC light goes off, meaning that the knob is somewhat working. Any idea what I can check and where the blower motor is please? Thanks Dan

On 2002 RX 300, there is about a 10 sec sound like a motor running at high speed when I first turn on the car that appears to be coming from the CD player in the glove box. What I want to do is pull the fuze for the CD player and see if the noise goes away. What fuze do I pull? RAD 1 fuze? If you know what may be causing the short motor whining sound that is really what I'm after. Could it be a pump that clears water from the a/c? Regards Ray

I recently changed out the plugs, plug wires, rotor, rotor cap, and alternator. Drove it for a few minutes and then the Antilock light came on. The AC blower stopped, the power windows stopped, the speedo stopped, and the battery ran down before I got home again. The ABS and brakes still work fine, and the motor runs normally. Somebody said its the "body" computer. Hell, I don't know, and the tech wants $185.oo bucks for just "checking it out." I say, "no fix, no pay." What do you say..? Thanks,

1995 heater blower motor: someone has replaced it before my sister bought it. The problem is it is wired incorrectly, the blower runs only on high continuously no mater where the fan speed switch is located. Upon inspection it aperes that someone wired it straight to hot. (always on) I'm not sure how to wire it, and I think the resistor is not working. I want to know where the hot wire goes and where the two wires from the blower go. The black is obviously ground. It has a 1 wire plug go


Since its presently working, don't mess with it yet. You can put a toggle switch in between so you can turn it on and off (you can even mount it under the dash). Get a good wiring diagram and use it to make sense of what you have.(Chilton makes a goo ... Ford Escort
