Car was running, started to sputter. Tach only went up to 2000, car stalled. Car started one last time but, now cranks over and no start.

There are 2 light bulbs in the instrument panal above the speed o meter that don't light up. Looking up from the speedo i can see blue that is in the panal where the bulbs are. When I take the bulbs out and shine a small light in the hole where the bulbs go I can see the blue light up. Nothing I do make those bulbs light, what are they for.

My car has less than 80k on her. Battery's ok. Had it towed and they can't find anything either. They say it could be a timing chain or off it's track or maybe a compression issue, but it has never, I mean never run rough and oil/maintenance is done regular. Any ideas, and if so can you give an approximate of how much to fix. Have limited cash so don't want to put too much into a great but 14 yr old car.

Noticed gas dripping under gas tank.
Car runs good. Starts good. Has power.
Took car to a mechanic. He claims that
The fuel pump modular had gone bad or was deteriorating. What I've read about a
FPM, it's interior and a exterior leak is
Unlikely. Is this FPM bad?

185,000 miles. Did go over a bumpy rail crossing kinda' fast, but car ran fine & started 2X after

Can't afford a new car right now. How much are used engines?

Engine will run very rough, misfire and service engine light will flash. Had ignition module replaced 4 times in last 16 months using Napa parts. Am now being told maybe needs a dealer part. What are the chances a dealer part will actually fix the issue? Trying to figure out whether to dump more money into the car or trade it in. Thanks!

Ok first off water wa in my oil . So. Changed head gasket, and the rest from there still ran, but wanted to idle rough when u stop at a light, would stall out sometimes, but if I keep my foot on gas to keep idle up it was fine. Ok so all these codes came up, so like a dummy I went out n replaced what all it said map sensor, throttle position sensor,crank position sensor,02 sensor,ignition control, coil, pluggs, fuel pump, fuel filter. Well it's still sitting in the driveway, won't start???? I hope I can get it going, my only ride. Can someone help??thanks

As I drive it will not go into the highest gear when I accelarate.

Plastic latch (?) mechanism is broken which is why I cannot fix it myself. Help with infor please!

Just bought my Saturn 2002 L100 2 months ago and having a strange problem. The front passenger floor and sometimes drivers side floor gets soaked but can't find where leak is coming from. Was hoping it was minor a/c or seal issue. Any ideas where to start looking?

The serpentine belt broken on my 2002 Saturn L100 so it was replaced. Still wont start so replaced battery. Still wont start but will turn over and acts like it is chocking to start. I am not able to find any broken wires either. Now there are some semi-fresh copper shavings I found today. Could it be the starter?

latest flash count was 27
no codes when diagnostic was read

We can shut the car off and they ( headlights) will stay on for 30 to 40 minutes. Also rear light work sometimes. We have replaced All Turn signal and tail lights

I have no way to raise up my car. Can I not just add tranny fluid or will that hurt the car?

It seems as if the clutch is chattering,but wife took car to Midas Muffler,& they diagnosed problem as some type of "module"Does anyone have any idea what this problem might be,and how much it should cost to repair?

the car suddenly started losing power and the engine shook really bad. it starts fine but will not accelerate. it seems to idle smoothly but when the accelerator is pressed the engine surges . And it seems to be backfiring when the gas is pressed.

even while depressing the brake the shifter will not come out of park. Sometimes it takes four or five attempts.

The drl light flashes off and on during the day. The high beam (blue light) light flashes off and on when used at night.

could a bad oil pump cause this problem ?

could it be the oil pump ?

i have'nt talked to them yet but this seems outragous.

I read a little bit online that some people just pulled it off. I have tried to days twisting and turning and it wont budge.

car was making whistling noise when it was cold and then started doing it all the it runs hot with the same noise on a short distance

48000 0n the car and I changed the fuel filter thinking that it might be getting clogged and fuel trying to back up thru the vent. She hardly drives it but it has been a week now and the smell hasn't diassapated.
