Question about 1999 Saturn SL
I turn the key to turn on the car and it feels like its rolling and rolling and rolling over but it never fully starts. If I add a little bit of gas it WILL start, but AS SOON as I take my foot off the gas the engine stops moving. The car is still ON but i'll have to restart it if I want it to move. Its a Saturn SL2 1999, with 160,000 miles on it... please help!!!
Ok, I have the same car, which means I own a Haynes Manual for it, which is the first thing I suggest you pick up at your local auto parts store, e.g. Advanced Auto Parts carries Haynes Manuals.
Straight from the book for trouble shooting a engine that starts but stops immediately.
1) Loose or faulty electircal connections at module, coil or alternator. 2) Insufficeient fuel reaching the fuel injection system. 3) Vacuum leak at the gasket between the intake manifold and throttle body.
I would try to figure out if anything on the above list is your problem and go from there. Post any new information you come across.
