Figure out what it is, an SL1 being SOHC or an SL2 being DOHC. If it is a SOHC then it came with 14 inch rims and if it is a DOHC then it came with 15 inch rims. Once you know what it is then call around to local junkyards, or auto recylers if it sounds better, and tell them you need 4 rims of the right size. Rims usually cost about 20 bucks apiece used and any Saturn rim 91-20 will fit the car, with the proviso that they must be the right rim, being 14 inch or 15 inch. If you put the wrong size on, your speedometer and odometer will be way off and your transmission life with be greatly reduced. Then get yourself some regular tires to fit the rims and sell those stupid rims on craigslist to some dumb kid.

What is the difference between tire size 255/70 and 265/70


Hello Projocs03,

Tires are typically measured tire width (sidewall)/tire ride height/wheel size. The differences of the two tire sizes you published are .4 of an inch difference in width/sidewall. And about .55 in over all diameter which would impact you revs per rotation. Depending on your wheel size.

Attached is a comparison of the two given the variable of 17" rim.

I added the above link so you can research further or change any variables you need to know. However, the most important thing to understand is the impact of your speedometer. Different sizes will have different impacts. For example going to a bigger tire will show a slower speed on your spedo that your traveling.

Good luck

My key is stuck in the ignition of my 1997 saturn SL can turn neither the steering wheel or my kets what can I do


I had this problem when my 97 sc1 was first given to me. It turned out to be in the automatic trans shifter anti theft switch. I just removed center console and disarmed it. try slamming shifter into park and see if it makes a difference, don't forget to push in on the key a little before turning.

What size muffler is on a 1999 saturn sl 1.9 liter


Not sure what you are trying to ask?

there is only one muffler that fits your vehicle. Different aftermarket manufactures will have different part numbers but they will all essentially be the same part so that it fits in the space provided. If you are looking for part numbers there are plenty of parts retailers that retail online.

I have a 97 saturn sl and i was pulling out of my parking spot when i noticed that it felt like i had driven over a bump as i was backing up. it only does it while i have the wheel turned. i have 17in rims...


If your at lock either way and backing up, it usual is the CV joints are turning at their maximum and have a little bit of a bind at that angle. Nothing out of the normal unless it feels like it went over a speed bump. If it's just a little slight bump then it's the CV's at their maximum angle.

The tire size for that car is 185 70/14. If you are planning on getting a tire & rim from a junk yard, you will want to take the old one along to match it up with your old one to make sure that the rims match.

How do I change the time on my 1999 Saturn SL-2?


I believe you need to press and hold the volume/power knob on the radio then push the tune button - you'll notice small words under the different sides of the button for "hr" and "min"
