If the starter/Battery are ok.Check for spark by pulling off a sparkplug wire,have someone try to start hold wire near sparkplug tip you'll hear the spark jump to the plug tick..tick..tick..sound.Be carefull to hold wire just far enough to hear spark,also this is the secondary circuit from the coil it's high voltage wear a glove.If you smell gas youre geting gas if no spark it is 1 of the following.Bad Coil, or ignition modulator, crack in distributer, cracked wires that cause spark to not reach plugs.Good Luck.

Car randomly won't start


first thing to do is to add a relay in your starter. relay should be connected to the solenoid of your starter then giving it addition amperes to let the starter motor running.

if adding a relay does not do the trick. replace the carbons bushings in your starter.

another problem should be your ignition timing. if you are experiencing hard starting only when the engine is hot, then your ignition timing is overly advanced.

HELP with my problem to my Question and added details


A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

2002 Saturn SL1, 72K miles. Hasn't been driven in


Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

New battery just clicks once when key is turned won,t turn oven


check the ground to the engine, make sure the terminals are clean and tight on the starter and on the battery and have the battery tested.
24 months ago for a rebuilt starter is about the lifetime you could expect.
Did u change the battery cos' it was getting harder to turn the engine?
If the starter gets lazy (often a loss of windings due to varnish degradation) and hence a drop in power when activated. This wears batteries out and eventually the starter will fail. A lazy starter has that labored wuh wuh wuh sound instead of a faster regular sound
If you odnt find bad cables replace the starter.

who do i contact to sue gm? after the n.h.t,s.a told gm on 5-23-73 to recall all 1993 saturns gm refused 29 days later i was in a accident that the n.h.t.s.a wanted recalled for a serious saftey problem i suffered a permanent tramatic brain injury and i wrote a letter to mary barra gmsc-e-o.she handed my letter to a jeffery koppy gms lead counsel who replied by a letter to me that was the old gm and because we filled bankruptcy in 2009 the new gmis not taking any futher action in regards to your letter.it took the feds to get gm to finally get the car recalled on 8-10 93 while i was still in the hospital.it gets worst i was a employee for gm at the time.because of my head injury i can't ever work again. i still had 17 years to work for gm and to get my 30 years to retire which was to be may of 2010.instead i had to retire a little after the accident.the day after accident iwas supposed to sign my transfer papers to another gm plant in michigan i was employed at their wentzville mo. plant because i was in a coma for 3 weeks and in the hospital 3 months that transfer never happened and the house we had at the time of accident was all ready sold. we had to get a lawyer so we could remain there. because my one car accident happened so close to where we lived.it happened on the i-70 expressway in warren county in the city of warrenton mo. all our neighbors knew about it. i was told by my doctors to try and do phyical therapy as much as possible.so my wife took me for a walk almost every day.but all our neighbors knew of what happened to me they just staired at me every day.it made me feel like a freak.so we sold the house and moved to the country.and if all that wasn't bad enough when my youngest daughter finished nursing school she asked me if i would co sign a loan for her in 2002 for a new car i still got my gm discount and because my brain wasn't right i told her to go to the gm dealer in the city i lived in because the sales-man was a very good man. and over the years we bought new cars from him i felt we were good friends.the car my daughter bought was a lemon from the time she bought it.it had nothing to do with the salesman or dealer. it was a 2002 chevy malibu.well one day she gave a friend a ride home and as she pulled into friends driveway the ignition just turned off.like it did to those 124 people who died because of a problem gm knew about for a long time. my daughters ignition failed in 2004 so she had the car towed to the closest dealer .they said the ignition was bad and said she needed a new one so she told them to go go ahead a replace it even gm had long knew of the problem she had to pay to get it replaced.then if you's can believe this about 10 years later i think it was 2013 or 2014 she got a recall letter telling her that the gm dealer put in another bad ignition.try keep sending her recall letters.but with gm almost killing her dad plus alot of other people wih cars with bad ignitions. she said theres no way gm will tought her car as usual it wasn't running any ways.so it just sat there and she got tired of looking at it and she just called the junk yard i forget how much she got but said she was just glad it was gone and could never hurt anybody ever again.but i'm not dead yet and i still want gm to pay me for what they did to me.as far as i'm concerned gm should be forced to stop making cars.think of all those children who lost their mother or another family member because of gm.i guess so many companys are out for the most money than can make their using defective parts. before i sign off i would like to say the plant i worked at in wentzville mo.had the most inspectors and process assurance inspectors that it almost impossible for something to slip by.i can see if a car rolls out missing a nut or bolt from time to time but there is no reason anything saftey related to ever be missed,from what i found out about the saturn car that almost killed me the bad positive battery cable that shorted out every thing in the car like air bags and abs brakes with no air bags to deploy thats why i was ejected head first out thru the front windshield.i'll bet it hurt alot but doctors said i was knocked out instantly.BUT just because i was in a coma my wife who is a nurse said i was thrashing around moaning that they kept giving me alot of morphine shots.so i'm very tired now using one finger to type on computer.so before yous buy a new car make damn sure there aren't any recalls on it jay teffer signing off.watch what car you decide to buy!!!!!!!!!
