Check to make sure that you did not accidentally push the alarm switch that is under the steering wheel. This happened to me and I spent over $200.00 on the recommendation of a street mechanic that told me that the ignition module was bad as well as the ignition coil. I purchased these two parts and still the car didn't turn on. I called the person who I purchased the car from and he told me about the alarm switch under the steering wheel. I flip the switch off and the car started. I got stuck with a new module as well as ignition coil. A word to the wize! Do not trust on street mechanic unless they have the proper knowledge and the equipment to troubleshoot different problems

Check fuel pressure and spark first. if both are good pull off the valve cover and look for the timing chain it most likely is broken and the motor will need to be replaced as saturn makes interferance engines. if the chain is still attachedhave someone crank the engine over to make sure the cams turn.

First try crank sensor, this mounts into the engine just behind the starter. It is cheap but hard to get to, common problem giving that dies while driving symptom.

My 1995 Saturn sl1 engine just won't start ...I'm getting spark and gas and the engine is turning over it just doesn't want to start please help thanks


Engines need three things to run, spark, fuel, compression, all at the right time. If your fuel pressure is good and you have spark then that leaves compression. Before you bother with a compression test first try to spray starter fluid in the intake to see if it will start on that. If it starts, it will die after it burns the fluid but at least you'll know the engine is good and you have a fuel delivery issue. If it won't start on the fluid then you need to do a compression test. You can get a compression tester from any auto parts store (I think even Wal-mart sells them) and follow the directions on the tester to do the test. Write down the results and post them here.

Saturn SL2 lost power, then came back on


Hopefully it is only your fuel filter needing to be replace, or worse your fuel pump may need replacement. Check the fuel pressure on the fuel injector rail. You can use a tire pressure gauge, but wear eye protection, make sure the engine is off but ignition switch turned all the way toward start, and be careful you don't get sprayed.
