Question about 1992 Saturn SC
I bought a 92 SL1 in June of this year, it had a LOT of miles on it, the odometer is broken at 252,552 miles, so lord knows how many actual miles are on it. But for only $500.00, it looked and ran great, UNTIL recently it just wouldn't start, it turned over, sputtered and backfired and ALMOST started but just ended up draining the battery. SO I replaced the plugs and wires, charged the battery and it worked, or so I thought. The first 2 times I drove it, it ran fine, but still idled high. Now if it does start, chances are in the first 5 minutes, the first time you stop, you'll die when you hit the gas pedal, sometimes not. Or you'll get somewhere and come back to your car to leave and it won't start. Note: this car has ALWAYS Idled high since I bought it, Now it either idles high or NOT at all. It seems like it's not getting gas or TOO much. Whenever you start it, you have to pump the gas pedal 3 times and HOLD it, when it starts you better not let off for at least 20 Seconds or she'll die and will NOT start back. Can somebody help me?

and the temp sensor , I still have no start its like its out of timing, so I am going to replace the crank sensor

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
