Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

I have a 2001 saturn l200 which stumbles from idle when releasing brake pedal and accelerating. Problem began after recent fuel fill-up. Tried dry gas route with minimal improvement. Thanks for any guidance.

SOURCE: I am getting poor gas milage on my 2001 saturn

These are the most common causes for bad mileage.
Tire pressure is a huge factor (Tire should be set at the factory recommendation or 1-2 psi above, but never below - Tire should also be a Low Rolling Resistance Tire)
Oil level (you said it's OK, so I assume it's not above the full mark)
Running extra accessories (A/C, etc)
Dirty Air Filter
bad Ignition timing
engine running hotter than normal
fuel injectors may be stuck partially open
bad fuel pressure regulator
faulty emission control device (this usually triggers a check engine light)

SOURCE: The idle has an intermittant stumble

Your Idle Air Control (IAC) valve may be dirty with carbon, simple fix with throttle body cleaner through the IAC passageway through the throttle body. Make sure it's throttle body cleaner and not carburetor cleaner, the carb cleaner is to corrosive to the gaskets used on the throttle body.
If cleaning the IAC does not help, then it's a good chance that the IAC is to far gone and will need to be replaced.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya

SOURCE: Where is the fuel pump located on a 2001 Saturn

you have to remove the gas tank you have to remove the exhaust pipes to get to the gas tank the best way to get to it is to put the car on a lift once you remove the tank you will see it on top it is one piece connected to the fuel gauge and the entire thing is inserted on the top side it is hard to get to because there is no access panel under the back seat like in japanese cars it is a pretty costly item too, good luck

reduced power , electronic throttle control problem . Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the ECM detects a condition with the TAC system, the ECM may enter a reduced engine power mode. Reduced engine power may cause one or more of the following conditions:
• Acceleration limiting--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited throttle mode--The ECM will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control; however, the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle default mode--The ECM will turn off the throttle actuator motor and the throttle will return to the spring loaded default position.
• Forced idle mode--The ECM will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning the throttle position, or by controlling the fuel and spark if the throttle is turned off.
- Ignore the accelerator pedal input.
• Engine shutdown mode--The ECM will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.

You can read what the ECTS is telling your computer with a scanner. (It will read in degrees) If this is bad, sometimes it will read -40 degrees and cause the system to add more fuel, which may be you issue. Also, you can ohm out your spark plug wires to verify if they are all equal.

2006 cobalt hard to start after fueling it up, must push on the accelerator pedal to get it started, then must put at high idle for few seconds or the car stalls when put in gear. check engine light is on.


Very likly your over filling the car with fuel. You shold only fill the car till it stops the fuel handle the firstr tim after that you may be filling the evaprotive fuel system with raw gas the engine is pulling this fuel thight the vacume system and it stumbles on this extra fuel till it burns it all. If in doubt shut off the fuel pump early as your wasting the extra fuel your putting in anyway.

I had a similar problem. I gradually lost power (over a week) and then it finally died and wouldn't restart but for a minute and then die again. The solution was replacing the catalytic converter which had been ruined by a bad spark plug. It was a 2001 L200.
