Question about 1993 Saturn SL1
I bought this car (1995 Saturn SL1, 52K miles) on Friday. It broke down 3 hours later. The mechanic who sold me the car thought it was an electrical problem. He replaced the battery and alternator today. I drove it on the highway with the radio and air conditioning on. The service engine soon light came on again! What is wrong with this car?
The "service engine" light come on in about 80% of older cars quite frequently. Usually, it means nothing being related to some emissions component or similar. You can shut it of with a rented (for free,) tool at Autozone. The tool is a code-reader, and can also tell you what the specific cause is, as well as instruct the on-board computer to simply turn off the annoying light. Odds are it'll come back if you don't fix whatever trivial B.S. it is complaining about. Best advice: Unless it's something major, just live with it like everyone else. - Good Luck, John
