Question about 1996 Saturn SC

1996 Saturn SC1 tries to stall

White smoke comes out the back, and it seems to be getting harder, or should I say doesn't start(turn over) as fast, as it use to.

Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too

96 Saturn SC1 (automatic): b 4 installing (CPS) crankshaft position sensor...she ran beautiful...now, rough idle and the moment she's put in gear, she stalls-out. I shimmed the sensor, she runs OK, but...


If it ran beautiful I don't see why you installed CPS. ??? 

The CPS and CAS should only be replaced if the car is stalling or shorting out. I just changed the CAS on my 95 Talon but only because it was cutting off like I turned the key off. 

If the only thing you did was change the CPS then it's not lined up right. Every car is different but the CPS usually has to be aligned.

Saturn sc1 starting


check coolant temp sensor located at driver side end of cyl head. remove sensor and check or cracks. also check connector for corrosion. if cracked, go to dealer for replacment. they eill sell you a new designed metal sensor to replace your cracked plastic one. dont buy aftermarket, they will not be accurate. cracked sensor will cause eng. to run rich. may start ok cold but not when hot.
