Is the anti-theft light lit on the dash ? Are the fuel injector's being turned on (controlled by the ECM ) ? Do you know how to test these thing's ? Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

2005 Saturn vue wants to fire but won't. Battery reads 12.2.volts prior to starting and drops to 9 volts when trying to start. replaced cap and it started on first try. it had a rough idle before...


Unfortunately the answers you have given for replacing a cap is too vague. Is it a gas cap, radiator cap, air conditioning service port cap.... Look the battery needs charged that is why the battery drops to 9 volts, a good charged battery should drop to 10 volts. Check your battery terminals or cables for corrosion. Do a voltage drop tests on both positive and ground cables. As far as not starting any more...do you mean not cranking as in no starter eengagement or cranking but not running? If it is not running listen to hear in the first 10 seconds to the fuel pump relay if it engages or listen for fuel pump...is the car getting spark?

03 vue sometimes wont start. every once in awhile it just turns over but wont fire try it couple times then starts. the problem has got worse to turning it over several times to where its draining the


Several components help a car start: 1) Starter, 2) Battery, 3) Camshaft sensor, 4) Crankshaft sensor, 5) Fuel pump, 6) Coils/Plugs. Start by testing each of those to ensure spark is reaching plugs on a consistent basis. If u can hear fuel pump - and you are sure fuel is in the tank (sometimes the fuel sending unit goes out, making you THINK fuel is there...). Cover each of those, and it should start...if the security system isn't being signaled to stay activated...security can also prevent a start... :-)

03 saturn view cranks but wont start


first of all, check the fuel pump relay to see if it is going bad. if it is ok! also try this, Have a person turn key to on,, and put your hand on bottom of fuel tank. if the pump is turning on, you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. the pump only turns on for a few seconds to pressurize system, or to get fuel to the engine. just keep turning key on and off to recycle fuel pump. Good-Day! Hope this helps! relay for pump may be bad.< Check this first.

Cranks no start


There is a lot of types of starting fluid. Some is kind of safe....kind of!! Most will destroy your engine!! If you are using starting fluid on a Saturn, you really need to stop. Your fuel pressure could be incorrect. The fuel pump relay could be bad, or a fuse. Your fuel pump may be going out. Listen to your fuel pump when you turn the key to the "run" position before turning the starter over. You shoulh hear a 2 second buzz from the fuel pump. If you don't hear this , you have a fuel pump issue.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2005 saturn ion 2. Will not start. Engine will crank but will not fire. Have fuel preess at fuel rail. Can hear fuel pump. Ignition module and ignition coil pack changed recently. Spark plugs changed less...


those saturns had troubles with ignition switch due the terminals on the inside of the switch not making contact you can run voltage tests to determine check for volts with ignitio on and off you will have to remove the plastic off the steering column to access the switch. thank you josh.

Car won't start


Only a few basic things are necessary for the engine operation 1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)
Plus, to start the engine, the battery, the starter and the starter circuit should be OK.

If the engine won't start - there's no magic - one of these things is probably missing. Most often it's a spark- or fuel- related problem, but often it could be very simple things like dead battery.
If the car won't start, check simple things first:
Make sure you have a fuel in the tank, oil in the engine and the battery is OK, follow this link - How to check the battery
Now simply answer the questions, press "Yes" or "No" (If it's blue, follow the link).

- Do you hear the cranking sound when you're trying to start your car? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON before starting a car, does the "check engine" light come ON? (Yes No )
- When you switch the ignition ON, do you hear fuel pump buzzing sound from the gas tank area? (Yes No )
Before your engine died, did you experience any prior events such as:
- leaving the lights ON overnight (Yes No)
- driving through a deep puddle, or washing the engine compartment? (Yes No)
- trying a jump start? (Yes No)
- having only a little fuel in a tank? (Yes No)
- having had the engine repaired recently? (Yes No)
- the engine was overheated? (Yes No)
- extremely low oil pressure? (Yes No)
- unusual noises such as knocking, pinging, whistling? (Yes No)
- smoking from exhaust pipe? (Yes No)
- strong smell of a gas? (Yes No)

Now, let's try again. Turn off the radio, try to crank the engine one more time, and listen carefully. Is the cranking sounds different than it used to be? If it's different, does it looks like the engine being cranked by the starter too slowly? (Yes No)
Is the engine being cranked too fast? (Yes No)

Hope this may help;
