Hi i drive a 1997 Saturn SC2.. every time i turn on my car and then make a turn it makes a weird scratching or like juggling sound (its like a soft sounding grinding or rubbing) also if there are steep turns. I have heard its the old suspension coils or something?? maybe even the steering wheel or something? or is it just the ABS working???
Also when i turn my car on sometimes it doesnt even turn on!! i had the starter replaced. . Sometimes it starts just fine (RARELY) but most of the times it make like a rr rr rr (i am pressing lightly and repeatedly on the gas as it makes this sound) if i stop pressing the gas it turns off. . .if i press it too much it makes like a poping sound) that isnt good. . . is it just my old battery or what??

I have a 2000 Saturn SL2. According to the ODBII test code of P0444D, I need to replace the EVAP purge solenoid. Is there anywhere or anyone that I could get a step by step repair guide with pictures of how to do this? Autozone does not provide one for this. HELP PLEASE!

I have an SL2 2000 model. I had to take the gauge cluster out. When I put it back noticed that my Tac and Water temp gauges,needles droped, is there a reset button, or anything I did wrong, that would cause this? Thanks for the help.

#144 of 238 SL1 with stumbling and loss of power
Oct 17, 2008 (8:52 pm)
I've been trying to pin down a problem on my '01 SL1 (240K+ miles). I replaced several parts in the last 6 months:
Intake manifold gasket (thanks to these forums, I found out mine was bad)
both O2 sensors (the first one is probably a year or so old now)
new plugs - old ones were very white and outer electrode was severely worn
I have two problems (maybe related). The car runs excellent at startup and until the engine warms up to operating temp. Then, it suddenly changes completely once it is at operating temp.--it stumbles when accelerating, and on the highway it loses speed on the slightest of hills. I'm currently running without the first O2 sensor connected, because I found that it minimized some of the stumbling. The second problem occurs when it is hot outside (above say 85-90)--it will go down the highway OK (sometimes with poor oomph on the hills), but when you slow down in town--it dies. If you coast for about 5 seconds or so and leave it in gear, it starts back up again. And it will do this repeatedly at lower speeds.
I think the two problems are related somehow. If anyone has had similar troubles or has advice on something to check, I would greatly appreciate your help. Matt
