    this is not the alternator. The alternators only job is to recharge the battery. So if your are not getting fire, check your spark. Are you getting a spark? If not start here. need better diagnosis for more info.

93 saturn wont start unless you hold dowm gas pedal


Have you tried cycling the key a few(3-5) times, before cranking(and trying to start it?
What i mean is turn your key on, then off, and on, then off(3-5 times), and then turn the key back on, and try to crank/start the vehicle, See what that does!

If that works then you have a fuel leak somewhere.

if that DOES'NT work, fuel is leaking into your engine while it sits
(more than likely bad fuel injectors!)
