Question about 2001 Saturn SL
My 95 saturn sometimes stall and dies(or jus flat out dies) when I slow down or come to a stop. If I give it some gas when it stalls it runs fine but if I dont give it gas it cuts off. any suggestions?
More than likely a charging issue. Otherwise the cars idle setting has changed (Unlikely) If your alternator is not putting out 13.5-14.5v at idle, your car will indeed stall. If you get this checked at an autoparts store, make sure they test both at the alternator and at the battery, since a bad cable can lead to the same problem with a good alternator. Good Luck

Hello, If you have never used a bottle of fuel injector cleaner, now is the time to purchase a bottle. Get to a gas station, pour it in gas tank before your fill up- do fill it so you will have enough gas in tank for the requirements of 10 to 20 gallons as listed on the bottle you buy. Read the instructions. Check your air cleaner at the same time to see if it needs replacement. Take a steady ride on the highway foe 20 minutes and as you come off highway and are decelerating softly toe tap the gas pedal without providing any pedal movement. Watch your rpm's at the stop and don't expect immediate results unless you get lucky.(don't hit the car in front of you) is a good reminder hear. drive the car through this tank of gas with the added cleaner and you may have to use your foot on pedal to prevent stalling until cleaner works. next post try to list more info-milage, maintenance, etc. Try it and get back.

Give it a oil change and put a new fuel filter on it. you might have to change spark plugs and spark plug wires. also put some engine and fuel treatment. if that does not work put about 5 gallons of premium fuel in.
