You will need it at a shop that can run diagnostics on saturns. I sure hope you can find an independent shop, and not have to take it to a GM dealership, who like people with big fat wallets.
You will need probably a high end scanner to scan the body control module. I think, but not positive, that the bcm has a hand in fuel pump control.
Go here and post your question. There is a tech there called saturntech who can answer all Saturn questions.http://www.2carpros.com/makes/saturn/l200.
Or go there and search. they do answer free questions. They also have a donation program to keep the site up and going, but do not require donations.

SOURCE: 1999 gmc suburban fuel pump

I had the same problem with my 99 suburban. There was a memo sent out by GM to all of the service shops that tell them when you replace the fuel pump or just desconnect it you need to replace the pigtail wiring harness that connects to the pump or it will burn up the new pump. I went through 3 pumps before I found this out after I replace the pigtail it fixed the problem.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy needs transfer case replaced for the 2nd time

I just had my transfer case rebuilt on my 2002 2500 silverado duramax. They told me that the spring that holds the pump inplace in the transfer case wore a hold through the case. He said this was common on these transfer cases. Chevy has not acknowledge the problem. He designed a steel plate, with flanges that holds the pump in place and will not wear a hole in the case again. And as far as the post to engage it once a month, the chain turns even when in 2WHL drive.

SOURCE: Saturn 2003 L200. 44,000 miles and transmission

I would say with any Major vehicle service the transmission should have the fluid changed.

Many things can lead to the failure with the electronics. A slight trans leak can lead to big trouble..

disconnecting the battery does not matter. No power goes to the pump until the ignition is turned on. If your fuel gauge is working the float is OK. there is no float in the pump.

I went to get an oil change for my car which is a saturn view and they told me that after 100 000 you should get the timing belt and the water pump change. Is it true and if it is how much does it cost?


Well it would not be a bad idea but not completely necessary unless it is running awkward. If the timing belt wares it can slip out or rip and ruin the engine.100,000 is a fair amount of wear on one belt. The water pump is under the is behind the water pup housing. Due the difficulty, time and money involved with replacing one or the other it is usually best to do both at once as they are both right there. Your technician is telling the truth. Now your Saturn is not going to fall to pieces if you don't do this tomorrow but at 100,000 miles both are recommended. As for the cost, shops differ but it is a bit expensive. Not nearly as expensive as a new engine though. This is just a random guess $400 give or take. Let me know if this helps.

I have a saturn L200 series 2003 I have heard timing chain needs to be replaced by 100,000 miles but a mechanic told me I didn't have a timing chain is that correct?


There was a factory recall of the timing chain on the 2.2 Ecotec. This was done for me on my LW200, but then Saturn was still in business. Dealers are still around doing service though. Look over here for inside Saturn dope:

2003 Saturn L200. Car will turn over but will not


I have the same model. Congrats you made it over a 100,000 miles! Most of them failed after as little as 20,000 or around 78,000 miles becaue there was a design flaw in that the timing chain did not get any oil to it. I had the 78,000 mile engine. Mine failed while driving at 65 miles an hour on the expressway. Pretty much wrecked the engine. The problem with putting in a used engine is that no other type of engine will fit in this car and you can count on engine failure again at 20,000; 78,000 or from what you tell me after 100,000 miles. You would be better off investing in a down payment for a Toyota made here in America that gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I used to be an oldsmobile man and then reluctantly switched to Saturn but am fed up with GM completely now and all american car manufactures.

Miss fires catholitic converyor gloss red


Your cat is plugged, its not letting your exhaust leave the engine thus causing all these problems. You need to get it changed as soon as possible. You can get a shop to put in a universal one they are usually very cheep but do it soon. They can get hot enough to start a fire as you have already seen.

I'm experiencing the same things with my '03 l200. My mechanic replaced the fuel pump about 3 times before finally telling me it was the body control module. It will cost me about $260. On top of the problems you mentioned, my car also doesn't register miles in the odometer, and the dashboard lights flicker. He said all this was because of the faulty body control module.
