Question about Cars & Trucks

Saturn starting promblem.

Problem: Starting car, driving 5 miles, turn car off, will not start again. No cranking, no starter noise, nothing, Wait 10 to 15 min. then she starts again. Also seems like a time issue. Stop, off, then 10 mins, wont start. Stop, off, 4 hours later, will start. Three trips to Dealer, no trouble found. Anyone have a clue?

SOURCE: 1997 saturn sl did some errands, then wouldn't re-start

If it wouldn't start, you have to see if you are missing fuel or fire. Could be a bad sensor, or a bad fuel pump, or if the security light is blinking, a problem with the security system.

SOURCE: 1990 vette runs fine after 15-20 min won't start then wait 20 -min runs fine again until i shut it off

I had the same problem. Turns out,( and I didn't believe it when I was told) but, my problem turned out to be cheap (inferiour) plugs and wired. I was reccomended to use NKG plugs and Borg-Warner wires.

Try the cam sensor,doesn't throw a code & they also leak alot of oil,unless you had the TSB done for it by the dealer.

1993 Saturn SC2 will not crank, but tries to turn over?


You are saying the engine cranks but does not start, right ?
Does it sound like it has compression ? If not could be a broken timing belt.

What is an engine control module on a 1993 saturn sl


Can you clarify a little better . does not crank ??? As when you turn the key to the start position nothing happens ? The starter does not engage an spin the engine ? Control module has nothing to do with that . Park neutral safety switch maybe, ignition switch possibly, main B+ cable from battery to the starter solenoid. If you would look at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starting system on your vehicle an testing the starter electrical circuit's . Doing voltage drop testing on the starter main B+ circuit .. Starter Voltage Drop Don't keep changing out the starter , that is not it. Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size. Under system click engine ,then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link. Now look at the wiring diagram ,DO YOU SEE A CONTROL MODULE any where on that diagram ??????
You should learn how to diagnose be trying to fix cars.

I have a 2001 saturn sc1 that is having intermittent starting problems. At times after its been driven ill go out to leave again and it won't start. No clicking when I try and start it either. Wait for...


I am having the same problem. did you figure out what was wrong with yours. I have tested all of the wires in the harness under the dash, they r fine. I pulled off the starter and had it tested; O'rilies said it was fine. It is a 5 speed, and I can push start the car just fine any time. Like yours, some days my car starts, some days it doesn't. The days it starts, it runs fine with no problems starting or running. the problem is the days that it wont start.

1998 Saturn SW2, 180,000+ miles. Recent starting problem.


It does sound like an electrical issue.  Double check if the ground connections are all OK.  You may have to check out the wirings, even the wiring loom if all wires are still OK.

Saturn SC2 Hot Start Problem


It sounds as if the crank position sensor is bad.When the engine heats up,it cases the sensor not to work.After the sensor cools it will work again.
