Go to an auto parts store that has a reader and get the fault code. Put the fault code here and let some folks help. You REALLY need a "Chilton" brand manual, as it is the most complete with fault codes explained and thereby assist with the least expensive fix.

My engine light is flashing in 1996 saturn sl2

1996 was the first year that all American cars were required by law to have an obd-II connector and computer that helps to diagnose common problems with the engine. Get someone with an OBD-II scanner to read the fault codes and determine which system is out of specifications.

One can have it done for free at autozone or advance auto parts, or you can buy your own scanner for under $100 at Sears or Walmart or a local parts store for automotive.

Good luck on this repair.

Saturn sl2 sputters when i accelerate and check engine light came on when i kicked it down into passing gear,seems to idle a little low now seems to be getting worse

You'll need to get the trouble codes to see what is the problem. Many auto parts stores will pull the codes for free - I'd start there.

I have a Saturn SL2 2000 the check engine light is NOT ON ,but when I took it to get it inspected. I was told that the computor is holding pending codes? (2 different places told me the samething) I was...

Find what the codes are and the repairs, I would cancel the codes, drive it and if they come back first, sometimes the computer can pick up fault code from a power transformer, Try this first.

My 2003 saturn vue service ebgine light stays

The CEL (Check Engine Light) will not go out until you hook up a OBD II scanner to your vehicle and erase the code. If it comes back again after you erase it than either the original problem still exists or you have a new problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can hook up a scanner and erase your code for free.

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

Go to 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.

What year motors will match up to a 1992 Saturn, 1.9 ltr, s.o.c.

Not 91 due to engine mounts I would say 1992 thru 1995,as the 1996 ad up are OBDII which provides engine controls challenges.

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.
