Engine coolant temp sensor, If you pull it you will be able to see if it is cracked.. I don't know why but the original sensors they designed the ceramic tips crack around the tip of the head.. It will make the car nearly impossible to start smoke when cranking the engine, and idle really rough racey infact. 15 dollars or so let me know if that worked for you

You are not getting the fuel pressure it sounds like to me.I would firstly change the fuel filter.If that fails to solve the problem then change the pump.Good luck

Reset change oil light on a 2001 Saturn l300

I don't know the year of the vehicle so I'll give you 2 possible ways to reset it.


Turn the ignition to run (one position before starting engine).
Immediately after Step 1 press and release the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next engine start, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.
Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.

Turn the key to run, but don't start the car. Open up the underhood fuse box (move the coolant line out of the clips for easier access). In the fuse box is a button labeled "OIL-R". Hold it down for five seconds. The "change oil soon" light should flash for about 30 seconds or so. That means it's reset.

Have you removed and checked the IAC? (Idle air control)

My key wont turn at all when i try to start it and jiggling the steering wheel doesnt help either'

your having the same problem alot of people are having with the ignition switch, the only way to fix it is to change the whole igniton switch you can eitther go buy a new one or a used one from a junkyard either way you go, you will end up changing the ignition switch to cure the problem. The saturn ions are also having the same ignition problems.

Key can not turn ignition to start car

its common for the ignition lock cylinder or the ignition cylinder housing to fail on 2000-2001 L series saturns. Try using another key to see if that helps.

I have a 2001 saturn sl. the car just turned off and the oil pressure light turned on. Now the car wont start and the light continues to stay on. the car has oil.

you are looking at two unrelated things. when the car died, the oil pressure dropped off causing the light to come on. this is normal. when the key is on but the engine is not running, there is no oil pressure so the light will be on. dont be concerned about the oil light and start diagnosing your no start.

I have a 2001 saturn sc and the security light stays on

Put the key in the ignition and turn it to RUN and leave it for 10 minutes. Come back and remove the key and repeat the process 2 more times without trying to start it. Because the passive security got tripped sometimes doing this will help it to re-recognize the key and work but I ended having to tow and get my car fixed at the dealership. Good luck.
