Question about 2005 Saturn SC1

2 Answers

Won't start till the morning

Hey guys, I have the same exact problem. My SC1 1999 won't restart once it has been warmed up. It usually takes a full day for it to start again. It is definitely not a battery problem. Is it a computer problem, or even the starter? Please if you guys take your own cars to a mechanic please tell me what they did to solve it.

My 1997 SC1 would start as if fully charged only after about 5 minutes of cooling off (same as my Busa). If the vehicle draws lots of battery energy when the ignition switch is turned (the headlights dim as if the battery was week) and all you hear is a "tlock" then more than likely the starter solenoid is sticking when the engine gets hot. Age, as well as wear and tear in the vehicle, would cause for the starter, and the starter solenoid, to weaken. When the engine is cool it will start as if the starter was brand new, but after driving the car for a few minutes (about 5-10 minutes) the problem starts. The engine running hotter than normal (ie. cooling system problems, different muffler system, low oil level), no necessary due to engine overheating, will add to the problem. My solution was a new starter ($115) and a starter heat wrap ($20), and I never had that problem again :-)

Hey guys, my caravan started this morning then shut off and won't start again. Heres what I did so far checked fuel pump fuse good, fuel pump relay good swapped with other. Removed neg battery cab


If you have voltage at the fuse and relay, and at the pump, but no fuel pressure, I would say the pump has died or the tank is empty.
Have you checked for voltage at the pump yet ?

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

93' toyota camry takes to long to warm up in the


Sounds like a dead spark plug or faulty wire, or even out of time. Start with changing plugs. No change, do the wires. No change check the timing belt. It may have jumped a cog. As for the slow to warm up part, the misfire won't help that problem, but you may need to change the thermostat if it doesn't improve once you get it running on all cylinders.

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts


My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.

Vehicle won't start? it tries to turn over but won't. was fine up until this morning. wut could all possibilities be?


Are you able to use jumper cables and jump it off? If so, take it to your local auto parts store and have them test your battery and alternator (usually free). One of those should be the problem.

I just bought a 1994 mazda b2300 series i like the truck the problem i have is it will start fine in the mornings but after the engine is hot it will not restart until it cools down i changed the ignition...


Check the engine coolant temperature sensor for proper operation. If the sensor is disconnected, wires to it broken, or the sensor is stuck in full cold mode, it will tell the computer to schedule fuel for full cold operation--which is way too much fuel for a warm engine. The engine then floods out and won´t restart until the extra fuel evaporates.
