Question about Saturn SL

1 Answer

97 satur sl will not remain running unless gass petal is held for at least the first 15-20 min then runs fine/////

We have a 1997 Saturn SL that is having some issues with cold starting and remaining running for the first 15-20 mins. We have to hold the gas pedal down some inorder to keep the motor running. after the first few mins we don't seem to be having any problems running. It will start just not run.

The cold start valve needs to be replaced. It is not letting the engine warm up properly.

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi Quad won't start in morning

could be that the electronic throttle could be icing up. just remove the air cleaner and have someone cycle the key. the throttlebody will cycle prior to starting to do a self check. chrysler has a tsb out for this concern. tsb # 14-002-05

SOURCE: electrical. wont re-start unless cold.

You probably have some corrosion on your battery terminals. Make sure they are clean and connected good and tight.

First, if the SES light is on or comes on a little after it is running it has a code set in the computer. Itis easy to read the code on an OBD1 system by jumping the A-B terminals on the DLC Data Link, block under the drivers side see the following link for better explanination of reading the codes, http://www.troublecodes.net/GM/

SOURCE: what are the symptoms of a faulty transmission? i

the biggest sign will be the transmission slipping. Others include rough shifting, excessive shavings in the transmission fluid pan, excessive leaks. If it is giving you problems you can change the fluid and filter, both require removing the pan and that will help.

Fan in 97 saturn sl 1 will not run unless connected to battery what could be the problem we've already replaced the relay we had to replace the water pump because it was leaking now we realize that it was...


Hi there, this is your sender unit that teh wires connect to on the radiator. Basically when the radiator heats up to approx 95 degrees Celcius the sender unit makes a contact that creates a circuit to drive the fan. If this is malfunctioning the circuit will not be made and the fan will not run.

hope this helps

Car won't start after it warms up


I have a '97 Saturn SL and had the same problem. If the car was cold when I started it, it started up no problem. If I had just come back from driving it and turned the car off, let it sit for about 5 min, and tried to start it again, the starter would turn but the motor refused to turn over. I ended up replacing the O2 sensor and the engine temperature sensor. I haven't had a problem since then. O2 sensor can be kinda pricey though. Good luck!

How do I change the time on my 1999 Saturn SL-2?


I believe you need to press and hold the volume/power knob on the radio then push the tune button - you'll notice small words under the different sides of the button for "hr" and "min"
