Most likely a crank position sensor getting hot & dropping out.That's the cheapest place to start.Also have seen problems with the ignition control module under the coil packs.Other thing to check if it's original is the Coolant temp sensor.Located under the upper radiator hose at cylinder head.Yellow & black wire connector.Hope this helps

Saturn SC2 - 2001 1.9 DOHC 5-speed man. Runs fine, starts cold. After running for a half hour or so if you stop the engine....you sometimes need to wait up to five minutes before it will start again. ...


There could be a few reasons for that happening....It is most likely a FEUL problem. Is it feul injection or carburettor?? If it is a carburretor, then there could be dirt in the jets. You could also have an inline filter that is blocked & not enough feul is getting through to the carb. Another thing that could be causing the car not to start after being running awhile is if the feul line is too close to the engine and is getting too much heat, causing the feul to "bubble" and faporise in the line, untill it cools down. Another cause could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or you have a faulty needle & seat.

Hope this helps.

Interminently Losing Power 97 Saturn SC2


Hmmm, as to on-again, off-again engine power, it may be the electrical connector that runs from the electronic control unit. Read this diagnostic article, as it seems similar to your situation:

You might also want to read up on engine overheating since you say you seem to have that:

Won't go into reverse but will go into park and drive


Sure sounds like a valve body issue to me, have you done any work yourself on it to get the reverse to go on drive?
Here is an article about valve body removal:

Saturn SC2 Hot Start Problem


It sounds as if the crank position sensor is bad.When the engine heats up,it cases the sensor not to work.After the sensor cools it will work again.
