Question about 1993 Saturn SL1
It seemed like the battery was dead, so we got a new battery. It started right up after the new battery. We shut it off and tried to start it again & it acted like it wasn't getting enough juice. So we jumped the new battery and it struggled but started up. On the 3rd try, it wouldn't start.
We checked the altntr and it's good. It sounds like it's trying to turn over but wont start. Could it be the starter? Is it hard to change out on your own?
Yea , I would say try changing out the starter ( which has a solenoid on it btw,) and that may be the cause of the whole issue, If you already changed out the alternator which I just discovered is a real chore in itself... try to change the starter out then .. looks like a similar task... where you have to go from the bottom ( underside ) of the car to get to it. Have fun Good Luck!
