    2002 Sc1 - Adventures in bringing it up to date

    Bought this 2002 SC1 in June of 2017, had the "slams into gear" issue. Good thing is it does not smoke (200K). Paid $400.00 for it, the trans didn't slam too hard the kid was very careful not to mash the gas.

    I was told by many that I shouldn't fix what isn't broken, but there are many things on this car that have not been replaced.

    So far I replaced the:

    Transmission valve body ($240) from Kenpartin on ebay , works great and as it should.
    All but the Head and Brake lights were replaced with LED ( interior is so much brighter)
    Added Foot well lights (Cob lights wired into door switch)
    Cleaned the intake / Throttle Body- (seafoam) and injector cleaner
    New Spark Plugs (NGK)
    New Coils ( cleaned under PCM)
    Cleaned EGR
    New Double Din Touch Screen/ Bluetooth/ Aux Radio
    New TAM Motor mount
    Cleaned the engine bay
    Replaced the ECTS, MAP

    Currently working on getting the IAC, ITS sensors, New thermostat + Housing, Brakes

    Currently gets between 24 and 26 mpg , hoping to bump it up just a little more (30 - 33)

    By June ( High School Graduation) I want it done so I can give it to my daughter for her first car, she is excited.

    I got Lucky with this one so I am currently looking for a 4 door Saturn like the Ion, Maybe an SL1 / 2? newer with ABS
