Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

Service Engine Soon light

My service engine light came on after a 90 mile trip to try on my wedding dress. I noticed when I came home, a fan was running a lot harder than usual making a weird "space ship" like noise. I tried resetting the system by undoing the neg end of the battery, but it remained on. I have checked everything I could (I am not a car kinda gal) including unplugging the wire in the front of the hood that gives power to my radiator fan (the one that is working harder than usual) I am not sure what to do or how to fix this problem. Please help, thanks!

SOURCE: service engine soon light, service light, reduce power etc.

It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.

SOURCE: 97 Saturn sc1 engine lacks power after warming up.

Check to make sure that one of the pulleys are not sticking on your serpentine belt line, or better known as the belt drive. Such as an alternator that is that seizing up, or a bad power steering pump.

SOURCE: car is putting at an idle when gas is pressed runs smoothly

Try cleaning the trottlebody intake and EGR valve. Recheck wire connectors on the sensor you replaced. A great site for Saturn SC1 owners is You Tube. Search for "Richpin". Type "Saturn, Richpin" and you will find a bunch of videos on how to find and repair SC1 problems. He's great.

SERVICE ENGINE SOON light has nothing to do with overheating or leaks ! OBD2 - emissions . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM / ECM - engine computer . Probably a sensors or emission problem . Take an have it checked .

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles


Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.

The Service Engine Soon light is a notice from the vehicles on-board computer that a problem has been detected somewhere, and service is required. You can isolate the problem by having the "trouble code" displayed for you at an auto parts store for FREE to determine the exact problem, and possible causes. This should be done FIRST, so that you strategically approach the problem directly instead of spending unnecessary money "guessing or assuming". If you are trying to save a few bucks, you may want to invest in a Chilton's manual for you vehicle as well for step-by-step repair, and diagnostic info specifically for your vehicle. I hope this helps,...and good luck!!
