    My saturn will not start after running for 1/2 hour or so. While I haven't changed the CPS, I have replaced the MAF and the fuel filter.

disconnect you battery. take something and fray back the plastic on the main hot wire on the coil. take another wire and wrapp it to the main wire you just frayed. now take that wire and run it to you ignition fuse. re connect you battery and see if your vehicle will start. if so than you have either a break or a short in you hot wire for your coil.

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

The check engine light should be on--rent a scanner, read out the codes, and pursue to repairs. The one sensor you didn't mention is the camshaft sensor. It is a hall effect device and depends on a magnet passing to generate triggers. It is combined with the crankshaft sensor and they work in tandem with the CPU to generate firing. Maybe the magnet came off of the camshaft? If you have access to an oscilloscope, you could look for pulses from both sensors where they go into the ignition module--terminal 'G' for the crank, and terminal 'K' for the cam signal.

SOURCE: 2005 saturn ion 2. Will not start. Engine will

the first thing to do is scan the computer for codes,also when the module was installed did you clean the mounting area good? the next thing i would look at would be the crank sensor, also theres a reprogram on these cars,the dealer needs to install or update a computer progranm on some of these, you would have to call with the vin #, this doesnt affect your nostart condition, its just something you should have done,

2006 saturn ion will run fine be drive for while then all sudden will die and won't restart from 10 min to few hours last time replace fuel pump that was not problem still does it any ideas


You need to test ,see what's missing while it won't start . Spark ! fuel pressure test, injector . Pull spark plug wires off same coil , crank engine , is there a spark jumping from one coil tower to the other ? If not the crankshaft position sensor or ignition module is bad . Saturn No Start Case Study featuring Beau Danner I would say just because I know GM ,the ignition module or crank sensor is bad .

I have a 2000 saturn that will not start it is an automatic i changed the starter the alternator and the battery and it wont crank\


Fuel system, replace filter, check fuel pressure and see if its acceptable, or just go ahead and replace the fuel pump so we can rule that out as the culprit.

You mentioned at least six parts you replaced,

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

Went through and checked my fuel pump,rail,coilpack and all fuses and everything is in working order but still fires and wont start. what should I look for next?


What is the fuel pressure. It could be weak. Spray brake cleaner in the throttle body. If it starts and stays running as you continie to spray then you have a fuel pump issue. If it still starts and dies the same then the ignition module or the crank sensor failed.

My 2000 saturn l series won't start.new battery. seems like it wants to start, just won't catch


If it turns over but won't run, I would check to make sure you're getting fuel and spark. Pull a plug after turning the engine over a few times and if it smells like gas then you're getting fuel, if not then that's your problem. If you're getting fuel, you may not be getting spark. Hold the plug against the engine block and have someone turn the engine over a couple times. You should be able to see spark, but if not then there's your problem. Good luck!
