Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 92 saturn 1.9 DOHC. Engine will crank and turn over but will not start. If I remove the #1 plug wire from spark plug and place it against the engine block it will start. What would cause this condition.
It starts when you remove the #1 plug wire from the plug? The spark plug might be defective somehow and shorting out the ignition.

Testimonial: "Plugs have been replaced and all emission sensors are with in parameters. I can have the plug wires connected and if I spray gas or started fluid in the TB the car will start but will not stay started."

SOURCE: fuel pours into cylinders
very strange and rare problem. something is keping the injectors open instead of pulsing them. The command to ground the injectors comes from the PCM, Powertrain Control Module. It may be a good idea to pick up a used one from a salvage yard. car-part.com is a good place to look. You will need the info off your module to match up.
Do you have 2.0L SPI engine or 2.0L Zetec engine?
Look on the page with the * to find the lowest price part.
aso, check for shorted wire going to injectors
Mechanical Returnless Fuel System The fuel system consists of a fuel tank with reservoir, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, fuel supply line, fuel rail, fuel rail pulse damper, fuel injectors, and schrader/pressure test point. Operation of the system is as follows (Figure 62):

For old models, Saturn/GM also used the same material
fiberglass gasket in your model, you almost certainly have a leak from
a crumpled, sucked-in gasket as I suffered (and many others). I would
say going to Saturn dealership to make repairs is probably not good
idea if they are going to put in the same GM intake gasket part. Maybe
possible to specify Felpro gasket with whatever shop you go to if you
don't do the repair yourself. I would not go too long with your car in
that condition as there is localized leaning at your cyl-3, that could
cause a burnt exhaust valve there.
The exhaust is extra hot venting out that cylinder. P0303 is misfire at cyl-3. Mine was P0301 (cyl-1). You may get P0507 once in a while when PCM fails to control the fast idle caused by the leak under certain conditions. Most of the time, it is very slow idle caused by 3 cylinders running. You run smoother in cold idle because the IAC opens up to increase idle and end up lowering the manifold vacuum, so the reduced vacuum causes less leaking at the failing intake manifold gasket.
I'd say try cleaning everything with your ignition before replacement; Idle problems could be caused by engine coolant sensor (ECTS). Are you sure it was changed? Did they put on a new wire connector along with it?
