Car runs great preforms well just the gauge cluster problem. What is the solution. We think a short or plug not in all the way or Body control computer???
The engine is not hot according to the temperature guage. Why does it keep running 24/7 if I let it.
I had someone plow into my front end while it was parked. It was fixed and seemed to be running fine. All of a sudden went to start the car one day and it just would not connect. left it over night, next morning started fine. and then the check engine light was on. over the next few days the car would start sometimes and not other times. the ck engine light would come on and go off. I took it to O'Reily auto part to check why the ck engine light is on and he said the computer said it was the transmission speed sensor. Does that sound right and how costly is that to fix?
if its not the fuel line, then where else would fuel be leaking from top of tank, when the car is running that is the only time fuel leaks out

engine was fine night before but when i started it the next morning it sounded loud and like metal on metal. i didn't move it. does the L300 2002 saturn have rods in the engine or is this a valve problem?
the fan runs all the time even before it gets to regular engine temp.
It is a 1997 Saturn SL2. It lurched to a stop when put in reverse and there is no turnover when trying to start it. Up til then, it was running fine. No one we have talked to has heard of this problem. Any suggestions of what could be wrong would be appreciated.
My service w/wrench light randomly comes on. Sometimes it shifts hard, sometimes it doesn't. The check engine lights is more frequently coming on with the other light. No one seems to be able to pull a code. My brother read that another owner had the same problem and replaced the control solenoid; it solved his problem.
I was told that to replace it; you just need to remove the filter and it's right behind it. My mechanic claims the transmission has to be dropped to go into the side. Who is right?
