Today, I went ahead and ordered the parts to “tune-up” and “repair” the old, ’96 Saturn SL2 with 94,000 miles. Here was the final list: SaturnParts.com:
Quote:No word on shipping costs yet, but it should be less than $30 and should bring the final total to around $130. I’ll still be saving $50+ compared to the local dealership. Then, I ordered some additional parts from RockAuto:

Quote:I have the engine oil and filter already here at home, did a coolant change last spring, and bought 3 quarts of Power Steering Fluid and 1 quart of Brake Fluid for $10 at Walmart. All done for less than $230. Here’s the interesting thing: The Fram “PPA7094” Air Filter is actually their AirHog reusable filter. List price is well over $40 on it. RockAuto only charged me $18.75 for some reason. I’m pretty sure the price is legitimate too, as I went ahead and looked it up for a ’05 Tahoe, and the AirHog filter for that truck was < $30.00, which is still “too low.” In addition, Fram is currently offering a $20 mail-in rebate on the AirHog filter. So, I wonder if my purchase will still “qualify” since the price is suspiciously low. I guess I’ll have to contact Fram on Monday to see what they say. If I don’t qualify for the $20 filter mail-in rebate, I can still qualify for the free cleaning kit rebate. It’s either one or the other. I’ll post more once I get the parts, hopefully that air filter price is right.
