SOURCE: saturn ion,sometimes wont start

The problem is in the ignition - the grease gets thick in the cold and doent turn quite right the first time. everything turns on, but the anti theft system thinks you have the wrong key so shuts off pwer to the starter. it takes 8-10 mintues to reset. That is why it normally starts when you come back later. I have had the same problem and done tons of reseach. Right now my temp solution has been a small heater and an extention cord. I keep it plugged in over night on a medium setting - just enough to keep the inside temp above freezing. I am also researching remote starts because saturn dealership charges $250 to replace the ignition, and a remote start will run about $300. Saturn wont do a recall because they feel it is not a safety hazard. I say that is bull. Good luck!

SOURCE: 96 Saturn Sc1 does not start after you turn it off

I had that problem with my 87 van.The gage they used showed it had enough amps but she still wouldn't start. I had to get a better battery. Mine had enough to run it till I stopped one time. Then I had to wait for awhile before it would start again. I have not had any trouble since I got the new battery. No one ever found out why the other battery tested ok or wouldn't start after one trip anywhere.

SOURCE: 96 saturn sl2, sometimes wont turn over, sometimes starts fine

It sounds like it's time to get your car a new starter. But you might want to clean and make sure that your battery terminals have a good connection.and,that your battery and alternator aren't going bad. auto zone will test those things for you for free if you take your car to one of there stores.that way your sure you are fixing the right problem.

Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

If it is an Automatic transmission, try putting it in Neutral and retry. Sometimes they don't always get into park all of the way, and you can only start an automatic car in park or neutral.

Doesn't always start , has problems in the morning, after it sits for awhile. somestimes it starts alright sometimes it doesn't,acts like it may be out of gas, cranks over and acts like it wants to start,...


May have a fuel pump going bad or a fuel filter clogged. When the fuel pumps go bad they tend to not hold fuel in the line and it leaks back to the tank. That could be causing your hard start sometimes and not others.

You are likely experiencing vapor lock. Changing gasoline grade, or getting a vented gas cap may help.
