they are by the fire wall on the driver side .use flashlight to see but may be dirty,have some one shift the shifter back and forth when you look.

i think it the right one, you would see gas on this plug if misfire. check all 4 the one thats wet is misfiring. but thats just a code it might be fuel injector too.

I'm having the same problem with my 97 SW2. Turns over and doesn't start, but after a day it will usually start right up. I do smell gas sometimes- the mechanics that have looked at it can't get it to repeat the problem for them. But it is very undependable as a car with this issue. Did you have any luck resolving it?

#220 of 234 What are these field campaigns?

I recently bought our first Saturn ever for use as a third car. It is a 1996 SL base model with air and cassette AM/FM radio and I guess that's it. If it has other options I certainly don't know what they might be. Anyhow, I used the VIN # to check for any open recalls using the local Chevy dealer and in the process the following Saturn directed/dealer applied campaigns were listed as having been done early in the cars life and I wondered if anyone could tell me what they actually were.
They all seem to have been done in 1996-97. Aside from that, the car despite having 185K miles seems to drive and run nicely. I have slowly become aware of some chronic problem areas i.e. motor mount...cracked cylinder head although with the mileage I would have guessed that should have happened earlier if at all, something to do with a pin in the differential backing out, and something to do with a rod falling? out of the clutch master cylinder. So, what else and if any of the listed stuff needs further discussion then "go for it" and inform me further.

I have a saturn SL1 and it uses up a quart of oil a month and a half theres not leaks what could it be it has a 198,000 miles on it mostly hiway miles. Should I chalk it up to the miles on the engine normal wear and tear?

YUP !! Saturns are notorious for using oil.

The pin in the diff usually breaks from spining in the ice etc.You must have a single overhead cam engine those are the ones known for cracking and mixing the oil and coolant together.The number four cam journal usually cracks on the head.I havent heard of the clutch master rod falling off.
