Try closing your doors, then using the key (not the auto lock fob) lock the doors then using the key again, unlock the door. Try starting the car again, it should work. If not, have it towed to a dealership, they can fix the issue

Our 2003 Saturn L200 turns over, but won't it's not getting gas. This just started happening and only after we've already driven it that day. The first time it happened was...

Check fuel pressure at the injector rail. If good, suspect crankshaft position sensor--when it fails to start, check for sparks by pulling an ignition wire off the coils and holding it close to the coil with an insulated tool while someone cranks the engine. If no sparks, replace the sensor.

My timing chain tensioner was loose, however i kept driving my car cause i had important errands to run.When I parked it to go in the store and came back out and started it up again it wouldn't. Lights...

If the tensioner was loose and the chain had jumped a slot, you would have a hard time even starting the car if it even start at all. It would crank and everything but just would not start. The starter has no correlation with the tensioner. A bad starter will either do nothing, or it would clunk and not turn over.

No fuel when car is hot - won't start

I doubt it is the ECM, that doesn't really make any sense to me. I believe your fuel pump is the issue. What do you mean it isn't on under these conditions? When you do a long errand it start and is fine, right? It is heating up during your drive, then won't start up after your short errand. That's why I ask if a longer errand would be fine, and obviously in cold weather, this would be the same. A longer errand lets it cool down.

Does the engine crank and turn over easily when it is hot? If not, it could just be the battery, but I kind of doubt it. Also, you are using premium 92 octane gas right? That care needs it.

Lastly, if you give it some gas before you start and while you start it, you may get it started. I'd hit the pedal a few times before starting and definitely hit the gas when you start it.

It's not the ECM; I would be shocked.

Good luck!!
