Question about 1993 Saturn SL2
This has jst started happeing, the car seems to run fine for 15 minutes or so, then aw you stop the engine seems to become erratic ticking over from 2000 down to 500 rpm and nearly stalling. The engine service light has been on for some time (i thought it was because i service my car at a non-saturn garage and they can't turn off the light). And there also seems to be oil loss from around the valve cover on the right side of the engine by the back bank of the DOHC. Also we have been using a hell of a lot of oil recently. Now i am not engine savvy. But could the two be related?
Idle problem most likey a Coolant Temp sensor & connector.Cam covers very common to leak around the sides & down into the spark plug holes.Also all saturn s-series 1.9 engine consume oil.Most 1qt. per 1500 miles some more some less.Service Engine Lamp has nothing to do with regular maintenance.It's a malfunction indicator lamp.If it's on there is Trouble codes stored in the ECM.Auto zone free scan with printout.Hope that helps
