2002 Saturn SL1 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Red lights, stops, and park i get high rough idle. Few times car died.. had to keep foot on break and floor it to get it to start and keep it started. Went to O'Reilly they checked light said Erg valve and battery. Replaced them. No change. Cleaned out throttle air intake valve. Very built up. Helped a bit with idle. Now Autozone gave code PO410 smog pump. I have no clue what to do. I'm a single homeless mom. Any direction would be fantastic.
newbattery x1week ago. Problem continued, fuse replaced.ran. checked bymechanic.
Do you have any idea how to troubleshoot this problem before I take it to the insurance company to do the repairs of the accident
On the day of the accident we were hit passenger rear quarter panel. It looked like it was okay to drive after being moved a foot or 2 to the side. It seems to be able to drive. We drove off and the next day it didn't start. Service engine light came on when trying to start. The engine is turning over but won't start. It sounds like it's not getting fuel to start. Is there a cut off switch in the rear to keep the car from starting if there is a problem with the fuel tank.
It started knocking and was still running fine,then I hit a puddle of water and it got worse. Will run okay but lacks power and if I drive ten blocks to store and back it barely makes it back ,New plugs and wires and when I check the plugs when I get home there soaked in gas!
it has been stalling and has a very loud clanging sound
it soundn like it is in the front right part of the car.......
i had brought it to get servicd to sears... they replaced sparks wires filter pvc valve, valve gasket cover,
and some fluids they said it needs a oil pan gasket... so it was brought home went for a ride sounded ok
next day driving in town and it was making the clanging sounds nad also felt like it wanted to stall..... oil leak was found .... so how much is a oilpan gasket and can that new gasket end the clanging sound.... thank you
Was doing oil change, plug might have got cross threaded, now just spins but won't tighten. Think pan has to come off, but not sure best way to do.
when first start up car in morning & its in drive the lights come on; but when shut off then started again there off. Changed both bulbs and the relay. What else could it be?
The noise is only while accelerating & seems to go away when up to speed. It doesn't hesitate or seem to have any power problems...just the noise.
while replacing the sensor I tapped the starter with my wrench and a few sparks came from the starter area? After that it turned over a few times and then it died completely? Please help .....!
Last week I drove to my sister's house and my coolant temp light came on while en route. Checked fluids, made note of what needed topping off. Last night my service engine light popped on and stayed on when I started my car. I went out today, filled the coolant, checked the oil, etc. Engine has had vibrations and idling inconsistencies (idles between 800-1200 when in Park, changes when I turn AC on/off or any other power draw) since I bought the car roughly a month ago. I have no service records for the vehicle and not alot of cash on hand for major repairs so I'd really like to get the issues resolved before they become major. I'm a newbie to Saturn, have no clue what I've gotten myself into...any suggestions on steps to repair? I plan on taking it in to have the codes read, but to be honest, I'm a little nervous about driving the 20+ miles to town with the check engine light on.
Key will turn and shows power but won't crank. Changed alternator & battery/cables are good. What else do I look for? Any advice would help!!!!
Where is it located & is it hard to replace?
