Question about 1993 Saturn SL2

1 Answer

93 Saturn sl2 automatic runs sluggish

When I start my car it doesn't have any pick up. I have the gas pedal pressed to the floor. Will adding fuel injector cleaner or fuel system cleaner help with this problem.

    Check engine light does come on when driving. Also I noticed I have oil leaking (valve cover gasket). I don't know if this means anything but I check the exhaust pipe and have soot on the pipe. Thank for your help. It just doesn't seem to have any pressure when steping on the gas pedal.

    No check engine light on or anything? Rather than add cleaner, you might want to change fuel filter if not done recently, just to be sure.

2000 sl2 saturn bucks while driving unless i floor the gas pedal

Have the codes read, even if there is no light on. This can be from one end of fuel/air problems to the other. Too much fuel, not enough air. Too much air, not enough fuel. First thing would be to clean the throttle body. The plate and where it sets inside of it. Brake clean and a tooth brush.

93 saturn wont start unless you hold dowm gas pedal

Have you tried cycling the key a few(3-5) times, before cranking(and trying to start it?
What i mean is turn your key on, then off, and on, then off(3-5 times), and then turn the key back on, and try to crank/start the vehicle, See what that does!

If that works then you have a fuel leak somewhere.

if that DOES'NT work, fuel is leaking into your engine while it sits
(more than likely bad fuel injectors!)

The gas pedal on my 98 Saturn SL2 is hard to press at take off & it makes the car **** a little when you do press on it.

There is probably carbon build up around your throttle plate.Cleaning the throttle body should take care of youe problem.Most shops that offer fuel system cleaning or fuel system tune up include this service.

93 saturn sl2 when given the gas it want pick up speed

Do a back presure check by taking the 02 sensor out and placing a vacuum gage there to see how much back pressure it has. It maybe that the catylatic convertor is clocked...which could mean engine problems.

Difficult to start

If you have not changed the fuel filter, that may be your problem. Try changing the fuel filter once a year to keep your fuel system clean and running right. 
Hope this helps and good luck.

I have a saturn sl2 1996,,, it is hard to start i

fuel, oxygen, and spark. Check all of these. Is it getting air. Is your filter clean. Are you getting spark. if not check your plugs wires and coil. finaly check your fuel. Are you getting enough fuel. Replace the filter, make sure you are getting enough psi's before the injectors. also make sure the fuel pump is working.

You will probably need to put your car on a computer scanner.

Let me know what you find.
