Could be a number of things, first it could be bad rings or it could be bad valves. If the engine was run hot it also could be a wropt head.

SOURCE: radio locked on 2001 saturn sl2

Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down, press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 (this is a dealer code - you can use one of the others below, too) followed by the # key, then enter the numbers that you wrote down, followed by the * key.
The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this number into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual.

Note: If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio.

If you don't have an owners manual, then press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button.
Repeat step #5 twice in a row it will disable the Theftlock and you will see "---". You will then be able to change to a new lock code.

IMPORTANT - Other dealer codes: 139010, 206053 and 620529 - these may be inactive by now; GM will remove them from time to time if they feel that they are "compromised".

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

SOURCE: Back up lights do not work on 2001 Saturn SL2.

If your bulbs and fuse are good, then you will need to check the switch located on the side of the transmission. It will have several wires coming out of it. This switch controls your reverse lights

Saturn sl2 problems


Have you checked the fuel injectors? Fuel filter? Fuel pump? Sounds to me like you have a fuel delivery problem.

Try the following: remove the airbox and spray some starter fluid into the throttle body while someone else cranks the motor. If it starts for a second and dies, then you KNOW you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't change and still won't start, then the problem is either a bad sensor somewhere (crank position sensor, maybe?) or no compression.

1996 saturn sl2 low compresion


You could do a leak test where you put compressed air into the cylinder to check for a valve problem. You have to take the valve cover off to make sure the valves are closed.
Either way you'll probably have to pull the head to check the gasket and head for a crack.

My 1998 saturn has low compression in number three cylinder could it be stuck and if so what can i do to free it up


Low compression is not a "stuck" issue, usually there is a valve leak or compression ring issue. Both are fairly involved to repair. The next step is a wet compression test. If the compression goes up when wet, rings are suspect, if not valve is suspect. The next test is leak down test.... BUT compression loss is not a simple fix.

I have a 2001 Saturn SL2 and need to know thelocation of the tcc solenoid. Can U help?


TCC solenoid is located in the valve body on top of the transmission. Once you have the valve body top removed, the TCC solenoid is the third one from the left.

Hope this helps.

Would like to know what the cylinder compression should be on a 1994 Saturn Sl2 engine. 1.9L DOHC.


No cylinder reading should fall below 1241 kPa (180 psi). Perform compression test with engine at normal operating temperature. Hope this can help.
