    how many miles are on it? sounds like it might be the timing chain guides or tensioner,most likely the tensioner cause it only does it when warmed up,also what grade oil are you putting in the engine?

2000 saturn sl no power to car no lights nothing. what could cause this i drove it an hr before then i went to start it up and nothing.

Start with removal of the battery and getting it charged overnight and tested. If the battery is good then you have lost your power source to the ignition switch. Check cables for loose/corrosion. Thats where to start

How do you turn traction control on and off on a 2000 chevy cavilier

try taking to a safe place with plenty of space to ride and stop. when it is wet or on gravel. accelerate and then try to stop moderately hard. if it turns on, it should be working fine. but, my guess is a hub bearing. do you hear and noises coming from either side of car during certain speeds or whenever you are making slight turns?

Starter "clicks" but will not start.. Had starter tested, it's fine

the belt which you have recently fitted is over tight which is not allowing the motor to run so try to fit a belt by making it somewat loose which will make the motor run
