How do you describe "loses power" ?
Does the engine stop, or what ?
If oil pressure drops below 5psi and the light comes on, you could lose power to the fuel pump.

Esp light on 2001 aclass


Hi there lose of power steering and the eps light coming on could be the power steering pump is broken or near stuffed so will require a new pump. The other reason is that your power steering oil level is to low and needs toping up. Also check that the drive belts driving the power steering pump are tight and not slipping.

Hope this helps.

Oil light keeps coming on put oil in it but it runs hot


OIL SENDING UNIT(A SENSOR TYPE SWITCH LOCATED ON ENGINE) MAY NEED REPLACED ASAP FOR OIL LIGHT STAYING ON. IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH OIL IN IT WILL OVERHEAT DUE TO VALVES BEING DROWNED BY EXCESSIVE OIL-CHECK TAILPIPE FOR WET OIL RESIDUE. WILL LOSE POWER ON ACCELERATION.

I had oil change in my saturn 2001 sl after the oil and security and airbag lights started to turn on after 2 days car started making a knocking sound while driving. and it died on me when im at a stop...


best advice here is to ask a local mechanic to have a look as engine shouldnt have started knocking with teh new oil in unless someone has put tranny fluid into teh engine or something stupid ,the lights for the airbag shouldnt be connected but the oil light ?? Do not drive car untill a mechanic has come around and checked it out for you though as this oil light coming on and knocking noise is serious

I have a 2001 Saturn L. Oil is leaking, it is not the head gasket. Tore engine apart and replaced gaskets. Stopped leaking for about 6-7 months and it started to leak again. Did oil change last week...


If you have no visible signs of oil leaking out of the engine then the oil is being burnt. By visible leaking I mean a small puddle of oil under the car after having been left overnight. This can be cured by replacing shaft seals and gaskets. Burning oil is visible as smoke under deceleration (no throttle) and under full power(flooring it). This is due to worn/old valve stem seals(smoke under deceleration) and worn oil rings(smoke under acceleration) This can only be cured by a major engine overhaul or engine replacement. Bear in mind that losing a pint of oil in 1000 miles is acceptable.

I have a 2001 saturn sl. the car just turned off and the oil pressure light turned on. Now the car wont start and the light continues to stay on. the car has oil.


you are looking at two unrelated things. when the car died, the oil pressure dropped off causing the light to come on. this is normal. when the key is on but the engine is not running, there is no oil pressure so the light will be on. dont be concerned about the oil light and start diagnosing your no start.

Reset change oil soon light 2001 saturn L-200


Under the hood, next to the battery, is a fuse box. Lift the lid (instructions are on the lid) and with the keyswitch on but the engine not running, press and hold the button that says "oil". The book says 5 seconds, but hold it for about 10. If someone is watching the dash lights while you do that, the change oil light should flash briefly.

SWITCH TO D2 LIGHT/LOSS OF POWER


Check your alternator. Our car had the same thing and it was due to the alternator malfunctioning. Once replaced, we got no "switch to D2" light
