You could try the cartalk website:
You have a choice of bulletin boards, where the Q's & A's don't post
until a moderator looks at them
or the "instant" Q&A service where your Q appears immediately and the
answer will appear as soon as some kind hearted and hopefully smart
individual reads and replies.
There's a Saturn-specific site:
but to learn about car repairs, I wouldn't start with Usenet. Is there
a community college nearby that teaches auto repair? It would have a
facility at which you could work on the car.
I can tell you everything you ever need to know.
1) Take lots of pictures as you take things apart
2) After each section is apart put the bolts etc. in a zip lock bag and
label them, possible tape them to the part. A magnetic tray is your best
DONE. the rest is trial and error

You can learn a lot about car repair from Usenet,especially the wierd
problems,where even factory mechanics end up swapping parts (at YOUR
expense) and still may not solve the problem.
The famous Honda/Acura "main relay" is one of those problems.
I also discovered a rebuild parts kit for my Acura starter solenoid,when
the shops require the entire starter be replaced,$30 vs $250(new) or $175
Of course,you still get the ones who spam up the newsgroup,or like to argue
about trivial details.
Clearly, what you need to do is post this same question to every
listserv list, yahoo group, and newsgroup on the internet, don't
pay any attention to the names of the groups, they don't actually
mean anything, and there will be someone in any group that's
interested in cars. That makes it relevent. Anyone who
complains is just being an asshole anyway.
