I have a 2002 saturn L 200 series it will crank and and run as long as it is in park but as soon as i put in drive it shuts off?
you may have an idle control sensor bad,is check engine light on?it's most definetly a fuel issue.if check engine light on, have it code read. sorry, you have to take it to a dealer or a reputeable place you trust. maybe someone who has worked on your car before. not just anyone. you need someone who has a code reader above 1999 year.is it very cold where you are? you may need to let it warm up more than just a few minutes.it may be only cheap fuel.87 octane fuels cheap,but misleading,it may have ethenol in the fuel. try 93 octane fuel for a 1/2 tank or add octane booster to the tank.don'nt know where you're at in world, but cold weather has effect on any engine in any vehicle.if check engine light is on, suggest you have it code read, it can cost a fortune replacing sensors,without knowing which one is bad.but your problem seems fuel related,suggest you add lucas fuel treatment to 1/2 tank of gas 93 octane fuel please.follow instructions on bottle,can get at auto zone,advance auto,nappa auto,just to name a few.but in the end if all else fails,suggest you replace idle control sensor.
