Question about 1999 Saturn SL
My 99 saturn sl will stalls after 5 minuts of running during idle or runing and I have to wait 5 hours before it starts again I have changed plugs wires pvc valve air filter and even disconnected battery then reconnect after an hour no results please help
This sounds like a plugged evap valve. Try opening the gas cap when this happens. If the evap system is malfunctioning, it will use gas, but will not let air back in to replace the liquid leaving the tank thus collapsing the tank and cutting off fuel. It then takes a while to break the vacuum in the tank. If the car starts right away when you open the gas cap, have your evap system serviced by a professional. Another quick diagnosis is to take a look at the fuel tank. If it has been collapsed there will be small creases in it.
I just had this problem on a 97 Saturn.
