Vehicle currently at just over 100,000 miles. Since July of 2011, I've had issues with the engine occasionally losing power when shifting at highway speeds. Have replaced engine control module (and had it reflashed) in July, the transmission control module in December.

Better description found at http://www.arfc.org/complaints/2004/saturn/l300/10439123.aspx (original complaint to NHTSA).

Vehicle did the same thing this morning. Same codes as before (P0606, P0700, P1811), and same thing as November 2011 incident listed at above link with rain a few hours beforehand. Also, day before the engine would have high rpm's in park (~2500 rpm) and slightly higher than normal rpm at idle in gear (1250 as compared to normal 750). No other problems were exhibited.

When I turn off my saturn and park it in the garage, the garage smells like there is a fuel leak. I have inspected the fuel lines and they appear fine. Put a new gas filter and gas cap. The smell is real strong near the fuel port and underneath the passenger rear tire. I tightened up all the fitting and I'm now looking at the white plastic purge canister. When I looked at the old fuel filter it appeared to have black resadu mixed with the gas. Any ideas?

I've seen this posted several times, and there does not seem to be a clear answer. In our case, we've had the car 4 days and it hasn't started twice. It eventually started, but both times it was over an hour before the car would start. We thought it might be the anti theft system, but when we tried to recreate the issue, we could not. Car started fine. What could be causing this, or how can I best get it evaluated?
