Question about 1998 Saturn SL
I have a 2002 SC 2 with 94,000 miles on it. I had all the required maintenance on it includoing fuel filter, transaxle fluid changed etc. Recently the 'service engine soon' light has been appearing...not constantly or even ever day, but perhaps every 3-7 miles it will come on, then go off. It seems totally irrational; I have no noticeable performance problems but occasionally it takes slightly longer (1 second) for the engine to turn on. I had the diagnostics done and it pointed to "engine running too lean". The mechanic checked the injectors and cleaned them. They appear to work fine but are not getting enough pressure yet and he said it is probably a fuel pump problem. Does this make sense so far? Anything else it could be?
Yes, it makes sence. I have a 1998 Saturn SL too, and I had to replace the fuel pressure regulater on it. I also had the light go on every once in a while. I asked a guy at saturn, and he said that there was a sencer on the engine that is goes bad after awile. The problem was that it was made of plastic and it would crack, but now they make them out of metal. I don't remember what the sencer is called, but ask a guy at the saturn parts window, and ask him if he knows what the secser is called, he should know.
