Question about 1993 Saturn SC2

6 Answers

1999 Saturn My 1999 Saturn sc2 with aprox 121k miles on it keeps stalling when i come to a stop. when ever it is under 1k rpm it spikes (up and Down) and then stalls. I have replaced the fuel filter but that didn't seem to make any difference. Thanks

I had a 1999 saturn that would die when brakes applied so I brought it to a mechanic and he told me somebody had disconnected a ground wire by the deck lid in the trunk. The left taillamp and the fuel pump use the same ground. The fuel pump would still work until the brakes were applied and the motor would start to stall. The ground was bolted back up and it runs fine now.

It could also be the intake gasket. Try idling the car with the hood open and spray the intake with some brake clean. If it stalls out the gasket is bad.

Hi,

I have a 1996 SC2 Saturn with an identical problem, especially after a rainstorm. Check the spark plug wires. If these are worn out they take up water the car won't idle well. A wire kit should cost about 30-40$. Hope this helps!

It's the valve that tells the torque converter to unlock. Basically it's the same thing as stepping on the clutch when you stop a manual transmission...without the converter unlocking, the transmission can't shift and the engine stops when the car does.

The fix? Try getting a transmission flush, that might free it up if there's just gunk in there. Otherwise you'll probably need a trans rebuild, or at least a new valve body. I'm in the middle of doing this to my baby, with 225k on her.

Hey I HAD the same problem.  I'd get to a stop and it would stall.  Sometimes I wouldn't even be able to go 10-20 mph.  Just today the trans axel went out.  Please, so you dont have to deal with the same problem check out the transmission! Many saturn owners say the transmission has been a big problem! Mine just blew!

I had this same problem on a different car. It was the idle air control valve. I replaced it and the problem was gone. Hope this helps

Motor wont idel right drops down to 500 rpm and trys to stall but then goes away and will run right and not happen for a wile 1.9 in a 1995 saturn sc2. the car normal idel is 750 rpm.


You might want to check the air intake. find where the mass airflow sensor is at, usually at the end of the tube that brings in the air throught the air filter. Detach and check the butterfly to see if it is clean. You can buy an inexpensive cleaner and use a screwdriver to help keep open the butterfly so that you can clean just inside the butterfly and in front. This should help.
