#1168 of 1419 SC1 starting trouble
Jun 05, 2005 (8:16 pm)
Hi I have a saturn sc1 2000 model. It has done about 59K miles. Lately it has been giving me trouble starting. The engine starts fine, however as soon as I put it in gear the engine dies. I have to rev real hard, put it in gear and immediately set off. However after driving for sometime it continues to idle(when i stop at lights) without dying. But if i switch off the engine and try restarting it again has trouble starting off. Any ideas as to what the cause is?
#1169 of 1419 95 saturn sc2 with engine noise, help please

hello group I have a 95 saturn sc2 with a nasty noise. i was told it could be a lack of oil pressure at the timing chain tensioner so the tensioner was replaced (and yes it did seem clogged ) everything reassembled and now the noise is as bad if not worse. the vehicle accelerates fine, no lack of power but this noise is very obvious. any suggestions PLEASE. thanks in advance.
#1170 of 1419 Flashing dashboard lights....HELP

I bought my 1999 SC2 used a few months ago. Over the last week it has started flashing the lights on the dash, oil and coolant? It doens't do it every time and if I turn the car off then back on, the flashing lights stop....I would appreciate any ideas about this...

I have a 97 Saturn SL2 1.9L DOHC. All of the lifters on the exhaust side are shot so I figured I would just order a remanufactured head from Clearwater Cylinder Heads. I received the head yesterday and noticed a problem. The EGR valve sits at a incline degree of 45 were as the EGR valve on the OEM head sits flat but at a 45 degree angle from the head. Is the EGR valve incline angle going to make a difference and create problems? Thanks for any info

Well Clearwater is taking it back so sending it back and waiting another week!!

Well I just put my cylinder head on and the car runs but it seems I am burning an excessive amount of fuel. The reason I say this is because if I sit at a stop light or parked for 3-5min with the engine running, the engine acts like it wants to die the longer in idle or when I take off is really sluggish. I am thinking about taking the car to Saturn tomorrow to have them look at it because I have been fooling with this car for about a month and it just seems a problem after a problem keeps appearing. If any ideas thanks again for the info!

I have a 1996 Saturn SL2 and it is doing the exact same thing. Have you found out what is causing it? If so, I would really appreciate your help.

I had this problem and all I had to do was replace the Alternator.

I have a 2001 Saturn SL. It has started making a loud noise when I put it into reverse. It also does it occasionally when I am driving. We have checked all the mounts and the transmission seems to be fine. Anyone that has any ideas let me know.

I am thinking now my problem is the catalytic converter. I have read some info and read that if clogged causes great performance loss, increased engine temp, and some exhaust smoke/smell. I am having all of these problems so looking into replacing the converter.
