Question about 2003 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

Car stalled, won't start.

03 L200 saturn, 75,000mi. original owner. while driving down the interstate, pulled over for a break, shut the car off, came back outside. the car started and as we were going onto the ramp towards the interstate we stalled. I checked under the hood there are no signs of any leaks, also no smell of fuel. I thought, maybe just vapor lock, but it still did'nt start. We were towed home and the car is sitting in the driveway now..

This engine is fully computer controlled, so what you need to do is have that control module (PCM) scanned for fault codes, that is the first step, other issues like engine failure can not be ruled out either.

Have you done any component testing? U1000 is a data issue, cant read pulses per minute. This is usually due to a defective crank sensor but you should do component testing first so you don't replace parts on random. Other reasons for this failure can be faulty ignition switch cam positioning sensor, Blown fuse, bad ground, or ECM.

"When I accidently stall my


This is a prtty uncommon problem. You should have the spark and fuel pressure checked when the engine will not start to see what system is shutting down. Sometime fuel pumps that are failing can shut down and then not allow the engine to restart until it cools down. By checking the spark, and fuel pressure this will tell you which way to go to try to figure out why it wont start after dying.

I have an 03 saturn vue, 2wd with auto trans. When driving, usually at less than 2 miles the engine shuts down at about 500 rpm like when stopping for a red light. Have to disconnect battery to reset...


sounds like a throttle sensor fault do to the fact that the saturn vue doesnt idle at 500 normally its uaually between 600-800. i suggest getting it hooked to a diagnostic machine to find wat the codes are cause im sure it will be several.

My sis-n-law's L200 stalled on the interstate a couple of nights ago. She couldn't give it gas or anything and coasted to the shoulder of the road. She said there were no sounds, just a dead car. After...


possibly a broken or very loose timing chain,,,it usually doesnt make any sound,the tensioner for the timing chain probably lost oil supply ,oil pressure to it and slacked up the chain causing it to jump or break from the low oil or just bad luck on a bad part,but if it did jump time or break the chain itmore than likely bent the valves in the cylinder head,,youll need a new or used head as the valve guide could be damaged and its cheaper to replace the head,,the bottom end of the engine is ok,,,,but check compression,and it should be 170 plus and all about even no more than 15 psi difference across the cylinders,if it is a low compression reading youll have to remove the clyinder and check the valves,,common on the 4 clyinder L200
