Service Engine Light in 2001 Saturn SL2

The service engine soon light just came on in my 2001 Saturn SL2. I can go to Autozone to get the codes scanned but will not have time to get the car fixed before I drive home (4 hours away) tomorrow night. What are the chances I'll be able to make it home if the light is steady, not flashing?

    Just went to Autozone; the code is P0133. The guy said it was most likely the 02 sensor. He said I would be fine to drive the 4 hours home tomorrow. Do you agree?

Depending on the code. Let me know what the code is, and I will tell you what it affects, and how serious it is.

    Yes, I looked it up to make sure. It is an oxygen sensor code. You should be fine. Just might use alittle more gas.

I have a 1999 Saturn sc3. It was fine until the hurricane this past weekend. As soon as I turned the car on, the l"Service Engine Soon" light came on. I am wondering if it is safe to drive or...


The Service Engine soon light indicates that something is likely wrong with your emissions system. It could be any number of things but it is OK to drive to a repair shop or parts shop to get the codes read. Some of these issues can cause damage if you don't get the vehicle repaired soon but you can drive it a little bit (you won't need to get it towed).
I would recommend an Autozone or Pep Boys to get the code read as it may be something as simple as replacing the gas cap.

Go to your local autozone or advanced auto and they can check it for free. Ask for the code and then look it up on google for ways to fix what it is.

My service engine soon light came on and was wondering what does that mean and what should i look for to fix?


The Service engine soon light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Service engine soon light


an oil change will not turn the light off, this light means a fault has occurred in the electronic engine/emission controls, the easiest thing to do is go to any Kragen or Autozone part store and have them run a trouble code test,it is free, then post the code(s) back here on Fixya.

2001 Saturn SL2 won't stay running until it warms up


I would take it to autozone to have the code read. It could be your idle control sensor, or it could even be O2 sensors. Hard to say without knowing the code.

I have a 2001 Saturn SL2. I have to keep my foot on the gas pedal until it warms up or it dies and now the service engine soon light is on. Can you help me with this? Thanks Debbie


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too
