Question about 1992 Saturn SC

1 Answer

1992 Saturn is having a problem running on freeway at 70 for long periods of time. Car loses power when you push on gas and slows down and then dies. My car will run but sputters and spits and acts like it ain't getting gas when i push the throttle harder but only when going after 50 mphs for a medium time of being over 50 mphs. Just replaced the Fuel pump and alternator and serpentine belt. Thinking its the map sensor or fuel sensor any help please. Thank you for your time. Jesse E.

    Thank you I guess i am going to get one of those things from Schucks to run a diagnostic on it to see if that thing can help out. Cus my sister Just had that Catalytic converter replaced like 2 years ago do you think it could have went out already again?

Possibly a clogged catalytic converter.I have seen many old saturns that the converter brick breaks up & clogs the mid pipe.

04 saturn L300 acceleration dies


run the fault codes first to check for faulty sensors
what you describe indicates a problem in the exhaust in that when the exhaust gas volume reaches a certain level the sensors are reporting it and the ECM is not able to fix it
have an accredited exhaust shop check the cat converter
for failure and partially blocking the exhaust at speed
if it was a fuel pump you would run into problems long before the speed at which it occurs
AT best it could be an EVAP problem with the vent not working properly but I think that it is exhaust related

Call the consumer safety commision and make a formal complaint. It is a safety issue. Loss of steering control of vehicle at freeway speeds. If its a new car, everytime it locks up, have it towed to the dealer. Even if its in your driveway. They get three hits and it is deemed a lemon if not repaired. Buy another carwith your refund..

if you don't have a gas cap on the car or if it is on too loosely then that is a possibility. Only other thing I could think of would be water in your fuel. You may try a bottle of "heat" (I think that is how you spell it) at your local auto parts store and chunk it in the gas can. if there were any problems with water that should be the cure.

Loosing power at cruising speed


Hi. I have two Dynasty LE cars, (a 91 and a 93). Both have the 3.3 litre. The 1991 had almost the same problem as yours except it would only do it once the engine warmed up, (similar to your freeway issue, given distance and time for the engine to warm up to operating temp.) I had it in about three shops before the dealer found an intermittent fault with the cam and crank sensors. I replaced them and now it runs just fine. I hope this helps.

2007 Saturn VUE Green Line recommendation


Our family has owned Saturns since 1992. They've always been reliable out-performers, until the most recent one. I took delivery of my 2007 Hybrid Vue on 31 May, 2007. From the first tankful of gas, the mileage has been woefully short of the projections - worst case was 19 and best was 32 on the freeway at 70 mph and no air conditioning. Most recently, I drove the Vue down I-95 in Florida at around 70 and no A/C. Mileage? 28. Do the math. That's about 3 mpg better than my first Vue would have gotten. At $3 a gallon, it'll take me approximately 233,000 miles to recoup the $3000 premium I paid for the car. If you live in a climate where air conditioning is not a means of survival in the summer, then this car might be OK.
