I'd pull the spark plugs and check them for coolant leaking into the cylinders... Between the low coolant light in the 1'st set of pics and the coolant cap being off in the second set of pics and the misfire, I'd bet it has a warped head from being overheated at some point.

It no longer has a misfire it's been running great I think the misfire was from sitting for a couple years. The cap was off because I was adding coolant from having replaced the thermostat. But it couldn't to check I'll pry get to it this weekend

I replace the ricer muffler and resonator with a cherry bomb, new fuel filter, replaced lower motor mount and replaced the ait sensor with a 220 ohm resistor.

Thanks and I couldn't say for sure because I try to drive it as little as possible till my 6 month progressive snapshot is over with on October 11Th
So far I'm at a 21% discount but hope to have it closer to 30% by then. I made the side skirts easily removable so I'll be able to do some aba testing when I can plug my ultragauge back in

On a side note I removed the intake resistor it made the car undriveable between 1000 and 2000 rpm it stuttered and jerked without any power at all requiring full throttle to accelerate then hits 2000rpm and takes off

I have a boat tail that will fit the back of that Saturn. It has had extensive testing. (no pun intended)

I like the idea of a boat tail but I'm not a fan of the way they look. I've been thinking about a kamback but that's the farthest I'm willing to go aero wise
