Question about 1999 Saturn SL
Just got new battery, oil change, new alternator belt. Car stopping intermittently, then after ten or so minutes starts. Driving to mechanic, stopped again in traffic. They replaced the alternator ($250), everything was great. Next day, car won't start again, can't boost, can't pop clutch to start. Waiting for tow truck now.
Check the fusible links for power on both sides. sounds like the one to keep battery charged has popped.

Testimonial: "Today I started right up with no problem. The last thing my mechanic did before I left yesterday was tighten the battery. He said the bolts weren't as tight as they could have been -- I watched him do it. He said "problem fixed". The real test will be if I don't start my car on Sunday at all and it still starts fine on Monday. Eventually will have to address the lock problem when $$ comes in.... Where are the fusible links located?"

HI, i would double check that sending unit for lose or bad connections. make sure the wires are in good condition. if everything checks out ok with the new sender, it could be that the oil pump is malfunctioning or, the oil pump screen is dirty or clogged.

There's a relay that's under the dash. keep turning the key until you find what's clicking then replace that relay, the car should start.

I too have the same vehicle with the same problem, however I don't think its a battery or alternator problem. I thought those were it at first too however after getting both checked that was not the case. My friends and family who have experience with cars think this is a computer glich of some kind, let me know if you figure this out!
