Ya that was not intended but worked in my favor. I took the block and crank to the machine shop to have the crank cleaned and polished and just to hone the cylinders. They said they will clean it to after honeing. Went to picked it up and they had coated the out side with some sealant or something. Only charged my $50 for the whole job. I'm definitely using that machine shop again.

It's been running great. I've put almost 200 miles on it so far. The trans seems to have a couple issues I have to get sorted out. It sometimes slips going into 3rd, and the brakes need some attention. I had one leak from the radiator petcock but got that changed out and all is well there, but no other leaks. I'm back on the road and should be back Saturday I need to go to the junk yard and get a few things.

Engine has been running fantastic. I had a issue with the cluster lights not coming on. I figured it was just blown out bulbs so I replaced them and it still didn't work. Also my fuel gauge wouldn't show full after I filed up. I figured something was up with the cluster, so I got a new one from a Saturn Vue. I filed up before putting it in and the old one was between 1/3 and full. this one went straight to full.

We have had good luck with wife's 07 Ion, kind of like it but the instrument panel in middle of dash still takes some getting used to LOL!

Have had many of my courier buddies drive Saturn's and they all loved and swore by them, much more than Toy's and Honda's. Although no one ever touched my 01 M lol!
