Car stalls out after its warmed up .ive replaced egr valve ,idle control,temp sensor


Do this service.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

1999 Saturn SW2. High coolant temp and transaxle warning light comes on intermittant. Auto trans. Runs and sounds fine. Any idea of the cause/cure?


check the tranny fluid. if it's dark brown it and the filter should be changed. they can do this at most oil change places. but it could be as simple as some loose sensor wires. hope this helps.
don't forget to add 50% water and coolant to your resevoir tank of your coolant when it's low.

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 stalling out


sounds like bad spark plug wires. i would recommend changing the plugs and wires - you can usually get the plugs and wires for about 40-60 bucks depending on what quality you get. the problem is that the heat expands the casing on the plug wires and can cause intermittent shorts so that could explain why there is no exact time between occurrences.
