Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1999 Saturn SL1 goe through has starter problems

My 1999 Saturn SL1 has 170,000 miles on it, and had worked consistently well for the past 9 years. However, starting this past summer, it has started to have severe complications with the starter. At first, we found that the solenoid in the original starter had gone bad, and therefore replaced it with a remanufactured starter, the car then worked for a week, and then thi starter also died. We replaced it once more because of this, and then this new starter also had an issue. It seems to not catch the flywheel, and all you can hear when you turn the key is the starter motor whirring. We replaced it once more, and it has worked consistently for the past two weeks. However, it once again is not catching the flywheel, and all I hear when I turn the key is the whirring of the starter motor. Does anyone know what this problem may be? It would be extremely appreciated.

    1998 SL1 about 125,000km...battery is fine, when cold, it will not start. Not even a noise when turning the key. Then, after perhaps 15-25 key turns it starts out of the blue!!! It seems to have the problem when not turned on for a few hours....my mechanic is not sure either....help????

    The difference for mine is the lack of any noise when turning the key.

Try getting a new fly wheel installed in your car because it soulds like you have a few ground down spots on it. my buddies saturn had this problem with the starter and he had to change the flywheel and it has worked ever since and that was 2 years ago.

A better question: how long will synthetic engine oil protect the engine? I don't put a lot of mile on the Saab 9-3, 1999.


You need to change the oil every year or 10.000 miles. The oil will be polluted with foreign material like water, sulpur etc.

I have a 2007 Saturn Vue greenline. Came with a 5 year/100k mile warranty on hybrid components. Last summer the hybrid batteries were replaced under a recall. I now have error codes reporting problems with...


No Normally The 5 Year/1000k Warranty Is Exempt After That Duration. But If You Have Documentation Of The Battery Swap Due To The Recall It Should Have Been Recorded! You Would Have To Contact A GM Dealer To See If They Will Honor It !! I Hope This Help's As It Is Important To Keep All Receipts!!

2002 Saturn SL1, 72K miles. Hasn't been driven in


Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
