It's your battery cable, fastest way to check this is to bypass your negative cable. Just get a jumper cable, clip on end to neg(-) and the other to ground, then try to start your car, if it starts then replace your negative cable. If not try to bypass your positive cable.

Is Supertech 50/50 universal antifreeze okay to use in a 1996 saturn sl1? Also, how do you add antifreeze after the old has been drained?


Yes, that should be fine, especially if you have drained the system. Fill your rad, wait to see if it goes down on it's own then top up. Turn heater on full and start the car with the rad cap off. Keep adding until coolant isn't going down. Once the engine comes up to operating temperature, replace rad cap. Then shut down car and let it cool down. Then once it has cooled down, top up coolant reservoir to full mark.

Make sure rad cap is back on the rad before shutting down the car as it will overflow hot coolant all over if not...

Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.


I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

1996 Saturn SL1 - 1.9L-4 cyl. will not start. The starter turns the engine O.K.,there is fuel pressure in the line but no spark.Yet after connecting OBD II reader-it says there are no fault codes.....So...


possible coil pack which is a semi popular failed item on these vehicles....sometimes the pack will fire cold ,then break down hot. Another cause of failure is bad/open plug wires where the kv's have no where to go except right through the heart of that pack and to the easiest path to ground...check pink wires for 12v to the pack and if thats present you might need that puppy....good luck

1996 sl1 water pump went out...replaced then it super overheated....thermostat must have stuck....then it worked fine except now it won't start cold I have to push start it. Then it is hard to start on...


Be sure your coolant level is OK first. When a water pump or other cooling system part is replaced air blocks in the system are not uncommon. If the engine overheated, this could have fried the coolant temp. sensor (ECT) causing the hard starting. (It might think the  engines always hot) ECT are pretty cheap. Just replace it and see what happens.

Starts after about an hour of sitting....???


I had the same problem with a 92 Saturn SL2 that baffled me for months. It would randomly not start (usually after being ran) and also would die while driving and not restart for hours. I probably called a tow truck 5 or 6 times and ended up having it start right up by the time it arrived.

I went through the regular troubleshooting chart and threw hundreds of dollars in parts at the car. Replaced coil packs, Crankshaft Sensor, Plugs/Wires, Fuel Filter, cleaned out everything I could, etc. But to no avail.

I had read everywhere that the ignition control module never goes bad so not to bother replacing it. (plus it just looked like a plate that the coils plugged into and they wanted $125 at the autoparts store.

With nothing left in the ignition system to replace I bit the bullet and bought a new one. I also cleaned the bolts and ran a tap through the bolt holes in the block.

Car never had another starting problem again, at least not until the timing chain snapped, but that's a whole story on its own.

You could probably even get one much cheaper from a junkyard. I've always been averse to going there though. The people kind of creep me out.

Good luck

Car won't start only when hot


if the car starts when cold and runs fine, and then after it the car gets hot and you shut it off and try to start it doesn't start. I assume when you say the car doesn't start you mean the starter turns the motor when hot, but the motor doesn't run as in idle. If this is the case then you need to check and replace your coil or your coil packs. Your car will either have one coil or it will have multiple coil packs but it will not contain both. If it is a coil and depending on what type of coil it has you can usually replace it in 15-20 minutes and it costs 50-70 dollars usually.

1996 Saturn SL, 4 cylinder, auto trans.. Car starts and runs fine. However if you turn off the ignition when the car is hot, the car will not start again until the engine cools down. When you turn the key...


I also had the same problem with my 1996 Saturn SL1, and it also was the starter. I thought it was an electrical problem until, just on a whim I pulled the starter. One of the brushes was almost gone and the commutator looked like hell. I cleaned up the commutator and brushes, and it spun like a top for about a month, until the worn out brush finally died. I also ordered a new starter the same day of the cleaning. Just a word of advice if you will be buying a new starter, go on Ebay Motors and find the store dbelectrical. They sell brand new starters for $49.95 with no core charge plus $12 UPS shipping. So $61.95 vs $150+ at your local parts store....Myself and my friend from work have both bought and daily use starters from them with no problems or complaints to report.
