2001 Saturn SL Problems

Noise From Front of Engine Due to Timing Chain

The timing chain may come into contact with the timing cover, causing noise in the engine. Replacement of worn timing chain components will be necessary to correct this concern.

Front Brake Rotor Wear Can Cause Pulsations

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

Stalling/Charge Light Illumination Due to Failed Alternator

The alternator may fail causing the charge light to illuminate. Driving with this condition will eventually cause the engine to stall due to low system voltage.
