Multible misfire on 1997 saturn sl 1.9


You should have a trouble code or codes for the cylinder that is not producing power.
Once you know which cylinder, you need three things to make power.
Spark, fuel, and compression. One of the three components is lacking, such as a faulty injector or mechanical problem.

94 chevy 1500 will start for about 30 mins. and then just stop


Does it blow black smoke when it's hot? if so, Replace the cold start sensor. If not check to make sure your cats aren't plugged, (they will get red hot). If they are plugged the engine will loose power and stall.

98 saturn it won't start when the engine is cold i have to put the gas peddle to the floor while I turn the key till it starts. when it does start I get large cloud of blue smoke. once the engine is warm...


Replace The Throttle Positioning Sensor...When you put Accelerator to the floor ... It rolls the Position Sensor Cam to tell computer etc to put Injectors Etc..into cold start mode...as soon as the motor fires..injectors take over and do their job..The Black smoke is the Extra Gas Put it cylinders to Purge it in a cold Start Mode...Throttle Positioning Sensor..and Yes You Can do It.!!! AutoZone-O'Reillys Etc..Easy Fix !! And Remember Castrol GTX-5-30/ 10-30 !!!

94 Saturn Twin Cam Valve Adjustment


Valve slash and clearance adjustments should only be performed by certified mechanics and is not a job for the garage or novice hands on type.
If you still decide to proceed, I suggest you get your hands on a maintenance manual which will list the procedure step by step, including proper torque values.
