SOURCE: In a Saturn SL2 1998,

P0133 is an oxygen sensor "response too slow" code (meaning it's not getting up to temperature quickly enough, and the computer is assuming damage to its heating element). P0422 is a catalytic converter problem indication (cat is below peak efficiency). It's assuming you have a failure with the primary O2 sensor and that the cat is also bad. Change your O2 sensor first, have the codes cleared, and see if the cat code comes back or if the O2 sensor change fixes both issues.

SOURCE: myservice engine light came today rogh in idle at light rpms seem a little high this is a 98 saturn sl2 I think engine is a 1.9

the check engine light means that a code has been set. the code will reference a faulty system that must be diagnosed and repaired. sorry for the vagueness, but there are e gads of codes that can cause the rough idling

most aftermarket parts places will scan the car for free. this will give you an idea of where to start.

I have a 1999 Saturn sc3. It was fine until the hurricane this past weekend. As soon as I turned the car on, the l"Service Engine Soon" light came on. I am wondering if it is safe to drive or...


The Service Engine soon light indicates that something is likely wrong with your emissions system. It could be any number of things but it is OK to drive to a repair shop or parts shop to get the codes read. Some of these issues can cause damage if you don't get the vehicle repaired soon but you can drive it a little bit (you won't need to get it towed).
I would recommend an Autozone or Pep Boys to get the code read as it may be something as simple as replacing the gas cap.

Service light comes on in about 30 seconds in a saturn sl2


Go to SaturnFriendsForums.com it's a great site with a WEALTH of info on saturn specific problem solving.

In the mean time have auto zone or other parts place read the codes for the service light,

MOST problems are caused by a bad water temp sensor on the right side of the engine down low ( looking at it from the front of the car ) it's called the ECTS sensor, get a BRASS one from auto zone for $8.00 it will solve a lot of problems that there may not be a code for.

Well most likey you may have a Coolant Temp Sensor concern causing it to flood but it could also be from sitting as well.The SES probally come on due to it running a bit rough after starting & set a Misfire code.The Oil Change Light Is easy to re-set.Turn Ignition on but do not start,open hood,remove underhood fuse box cover hold down the red oil-r button for 5-8 secs.then check oil change soon lamp,should be flashing.Turn Ignition off & it's reset

'98 SL2 Saturn Traction Control


Traction control helps limit tire slip in acceleration on slippery surfaces. In the past you had to feather the gas pedal to prevent the drive wheels from spinning wildly on slippery pavement. Many of today's vehicles employ electronic controls to limit power delivery for the driver, eliminating wheel slip and helping the driver accelerate under control. Don't turn it off.

2001 Saturn SL2 won't stay running until it warms up


I would take it to autozone to have the code read. It could be your idle control sensor, or it could even be O2 sensors. Hard to say without knowing the code.
