Car intermittently will not start. At first thought it was the fuel pump. Had it replaced, problem still occurred. I had the car checked out at another service center. They say the coils need to be replaced. I also was told by another source that it also may be the camshaft sensor. I may have both replaced.

Got a diagnostic done and found an error that the "2 4 6 ignition coil" is misfiring.

Have had this problem multiple times. 4 in the past 3 years. They replace the spark plugs for around $400 and call it good. I'm thinking there is more to it than that at this point.

I have a 3.0 6 cyl LW300. Several times in past month, engine would run rough and shake when first starting up. Sometimes, when I shut it down then, re-started it, the problem was gone. Sometimes, "service engine soon" light would stay on, even though the engine ran fine. Had a shop hook it up to a diagnosis machine that should the number 6 cylinder misfired 477 times.....but the engine ran fine. They cleared the error and service engine light went out, and vehicle runs fine. Mechanic said if it happens again, he may need to replace the coil wiring.

When starting engine, the idol goes high low. Have to keep restarting or pop the hood and play with the wires kind of up near the windshield, passenger side. Engine not getting enough power. Sounds like its misfiring

I have had that same thing going on and was told that they could not find out way it was doing it . the check engine light keeps coming on . I think they discounted it. Now my oil light keeps coming on and I brought it back up to tires plus were I have my oil job done all the time .And the man told me it was a button that he turned off he said but it still keeps coming on . it goes away after a little while when the car is running. I don't think that is right .ALSO when I bought the car I have been smelling this egg smell it comes and goes ,but now I am getting a load noise from were the tail pipes are . The sound goes away a little when the car is running at 55 or running for a long time. And my headlights are not very bright not sure what that is about .I really liked my Saturn ,the first one so I got another and so far there are a lot of things wrong with it .I have had to fix the air cond on it . my guy said something about the way it was made .(it was wrong) so he move things around so it wouldn't happen again. PLEASE I NEED IN FINDING OUT WHAT IS GOING ON . IT'S A SATURN L 300 WITH ONLY 79000 MILES ON IT .I TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF MY CAR. I am not working due to I have a lot of health use. So my money is very ,very little . And I was looking at recalls to see if my car has any ( not sure what to if it did.) Because I bought it used from someone eles.
