Question about 2002 Saturn Sl

1 Answer

Car will not turn over

My son is attending college 2 hours away, he call and said his 2002 Saturn sl stopped running just like it ran out of gas as he was going down the road, he said may have heard a belt squeal. Now when he tries to start it doesn’t turn over, light and radio work fine. Car has 80k on it I’m hoping its to soon for timing chain, possibility neutral switch?
I would really appreciate any advise, I’ve had his car worked on before out of town and got raped!
Any advise on test or where to start looking would really be appreciated.

This could very well be the Fuel Pump or the Fuel Filter. Also have him Check the Starter Relay and the Fuel Pump Relay. There is a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood that has these. They are cheap and he can get them at Any Auto Parts Stor. I would start with the Relays and go from There. Let me know what He finds out so that if we need to go farther I will know! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

    Has he Tried to Locate that Starter Relay Yet? It could also be that the Starter has Stopped all Together. If So, I would get a Mechanic to do the Starter on the Saturn. They can get Pretty Tough to mess with on this Item.

MY 1995 SATURN WILL NOT START


You probably got gunk from bottom of tank sucked into pump after you ran it to low and now it is blocking gas from getting past. Happens often when ppl run their vehicles out of gas. You will probably need to take pump out and clean screen.

2002 SATURN SL WILL NOT START HAVE GAS BUT NO ELETRONIC SPARK NEED POSSIBLE TROUBLE SHOOTING


My first guess would be a crank or cam sensor is disconnected.
Or damaged.
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?

Egr valve on a 2002 Saturn SL1


Take off air breather tube,you should see a cone shaped part, on top and at back of engine right by the gas pedal cable. Remove the 2 10mm bolts, and it should come right off.

Will not start after it stalls untill about 5-10 minutes


This sounds like a plugged evap valve. Try opening the gas cap when this happens. If the evap system is malfunctioning, it will use gas, but will not let air back in to replace the liquid leaving the tank thus collapsing the tank and cutting off fuel. It then takes a while to break the vacuum in the tank. If the car starts right away when you open the gas cap, have your evap system serviced by a professional. Another quick diagnosis is to take a look at the fuel tank. If it has been collapsed there will be small creases in it.

I just had this problem on a 97 Saturn.

2002 Saturn SL headlights stay on


On a 2002 saturn, the headlights are not automatic, you have to turn the knob on the end of the signal light lever to turn them off.
Also, some models are equipped with "Daytime running lights"; a safety feature. these daytime running lights are just the amber colored front signal lights, which turn on automatically when the parking brake is released to make your car more visible during daylight hours. Furthermore, if any headlight refuses to shut off, there is an electrical problem, most likely a failed relay, which are located in the underhood fuse panel and can be checked quite easily with a multimeter, relay failures are veryrare, but not unheard of, especially in vehicles equipped with aftermarket fog lights. Thankfully they are cheap and readily available and are as easy to change as a fuse.
