2002 Saturn L100 Questions
We can shut the car off and they ( headlights) will stay on for 30 to 40 minutes. Also rear light work sometimes. We have replaced All Turn signal and tail lights
the car suddenly started losing power and the engine shook really bad. it starts fine but will not accelerate. it seems to idle smoothly but when the accelerator is pressed the engine surges . And it seems to be backfiring when the gas is pressed.
even while depressing the brake the shifter will not come out of park. Sometimes it takes four or five attempts.
