1996 Saturn SL2 Q&A
1996 Saturn SL2 Question: Car will not start. Engine trys but will not keep going. Need any thoughts.
Replaced Starter, has voltage to starter, Battery is new and new CPS ,Disconnected Coolent Sensor.Fuel pressure good at pressure valve. New Spark plugs and wires are fairly new. Got shocked on the right coil during start using meter and touching ground with palm,opps. So I would say that side is good. Not going to do the other that way ;p. Got to check for flooded plugs and see if my brother set the gap on the plugs. Going to try starter fluid to see if it helps after lots of trying to start the darn thing. Gonna pull plugs and clear chambers first. Muffler moves a little during crank. No smoke no dripping fule or oil. - saturndead
Engine is flooded! When you unhooked the CTS, it dumped a bunch of gas into the cylinders because it thought the ambient temp was like -40! Remove plugs, purge gas from cylinders, clean plugs and blow dry, install plugs and hook up everything. Try to start it again. - pushrod
Get some throttle body cleaner (I don't like starter fluid) and spray a little in the throttle while cranking and see if the vehicle will start. If it starts check for fuel injector pulse. If it does not start check compression for possible timing chain issue. - Justin Case Auto
do you have any codes? - globalhelper
