Check the ignition coil
on March 18, 2011
I had a coil die on me while driving once. When I replaced it with one from my parts car, I discovered something extremely valuble!!!! My car was a 1996 Saturn SL2. Parts car was 1997 SL1. Both have the same coil. And both had a ton of oil and dirt built-up between the coil and the engine block. I now have another 1997 SL2. Just bought it, only has 86,000 miles on it. It was starting hard. The odd thing was, it would start rightup after I would just turn the engine over for a second or two. It would also start easily after it was just shut off. I took off the coil tonight and found oil and mud. took it off cleaned it in the kitchen sink, PROBLEM SOLVED !!! Cleaning the coil should be part of routine maintenance for everyone. And, if you have a leaky Valve Cover Gasket, replace it ASAP. I will be doing mine today.
