SOURCE: i have a saturn sl2 1996,,, it is hard to start i

fuel, oxygen, and spark. Check all of these. Is it getting air. Is your filter clean. Are you getting spark. if not check your plugs wires and coil. finaly check your fuel. Are you getting enough fuel. Replace the filter, make sure you are getting enough psi's before the injectors. also make sure the fuel pump is working.

You will probably need to put your car on a computer scanner.

Let me know what you find.

Have you tried replacing the O2 sensor and having your fuel injectors cleaned and checked? It sounds like it could be a fuel problem / emissionsproblem.

Saturn vue just turns over doesnt start


For 90% of cars that try but just can't start. Key off, Pump Gas Pedal 4 x, holding it to floor (all the way down) on 4th time, then just turn key. as soon as engine starts and revvs up, let go of the gas pedal! Seriously... Do not keep the pedal down!!! This is b/c engine is 'cold', the oil that lubricates your precious engine is very thick, and you don't want to add other problems (scarred pistons/cylinders/rings and oil burning or a severely overrevved engine (screaming) at no load (you are not in gear - no drag of car weight on motor) resulting in major engine damage.

Takes hour to start why


Try this-- The next time you start the car, hold the pedal down to the floor. If it starts, Then you have a flooding problem. hold it there for 30 seconds. Then while still holding the pedal to the floor, try to start the car. Hard to say on pc. If above does not work, see or call saturn dealer to see if anyone else is having the same problem. Good-Day!

93 saturn wont start unless you hold dowm gas pedal


Have you tried cycling the key a few(3-5) times, before cranking(and trying to start it?
What i mean is turn your key on, then off, and on, then off(3-5 times), and then turn the key back on, and try to crank/start the vehicle, See what that does!

If that works then you have a fuel leak somewhere.

if that DOES'NT work, fuel is leaking into your engine while it sits
(more than likely bad fuel injectors!)

Wont start unless i put the gas pedal down


too many possibilities without more info..check that carb linkage ok and choke is not stuck...check timing (does it have a labored pattern to cranking rhythm)...one plug/wire or other section of secondary ignition (cap/rotor) could be bad or weak

Car shakes when trying to start and doesn't turn over


  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine
