Question about 1993 Saturn SL2

1 Answer

My 1995 saturn sl2 shuts off when i push the clutch in after i have given it more gas than it can handle when going up incline pressing the gas only more than 2 inches over what it needs but when i get it up to 55 and put on the cruise control and it puts the gas in the floor up a hill it does just fine so when i go up hills i have to downshift to a lower gear and rev it up higher

Cant figure out how to remove outside door handle on 92 saturn sl2. need to work on window regulator. thanks for any help.

Lift up the handle and look closely underneath. You will see two small black plastic pins. These can be pushed out either way, you will have to buy new ones at an autobody/paint supply store to reinstall. When they are out, the handle will come off.

1992 Saturn SL2: when i depress the clutch pedal nothing happens. I do not feel anything other than the normal resistance. With engine running can move the shifter and feel it snap into the proper slots...

The problem could be in the gearbox, but I'm more inclined to think it's in the rear and maybe a broken axle. There is also the possibilty that the centre has torn out of the cluch driven plate, which I suppose is the more likely. Can't imagine what the mechanic did to "rig it".

Having trouble shifting...hear strange rattle when clutch NOT pushed in... sounds like a joint or bearing of some sort

Your throwout bearing may be nearing the end of its useful live. Your clutch may be in the same condition.

Please have this checked by your mechanic before any major damage occurs.

93 saturn sl2 when given the gas it want pick up speed

Do a back presure check by taking the 02 sensor out and placing a vacuum gage there to see how much back pressure it has. It maybe that the catylatic convertor is clocked...which could mean engine problems.

Most Likey It's a clutch problem or I have seen a axle shaft broken in between the rubber damper on the axle shaft.More than likely a clutch concern.

I cant find my fuel rail pressure relief valve. where is it loacated on a 1994 saturn sl2

I just did a tune up on a 1995 SL2. The valve is on the fuel filter assembly. Facing the car, on the right side, the fuel filter is attached to the frame. Follow the line out of it, and there should be a cap. Unscrew the cap, and push the schrader valve in. Pressure released.
