    Is it making a "clicking" sound when you turn the key? Hvae you checked to make sure your battery is fully charged?

Sounds like your engine runs so is there is any noise when you turn the key? Follow the large red wire from battery down to the starter and make sure there is a good connection there and that the black ground wire from the battery is making good connection. If no help there I would suspect the starter first and the ignition switch second.

Have the starter tested at your local auto parts store. Replace if necessary.

1995 saturn will crank but wont start it is a manual transmission and wont start by popping clutch either


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. How long since a tune-up?
Have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check for fuel injector pulse.

1999 Saturn SL having random starting problems


Hey man it sounds like it could be a few different things. If you can pop the clutch and get it runing nothing is wrong with your engine. First i would try cleaning both battery terminals and cables then clean the connection at the starter. To do so remove the wiring and clean off any dirt or corrosion with a wire brush. I have seen this quite a few times bad connection at the starter keeps it from getting enough power. If that does not solve the problem your starter may be going out.The easiest way is to remove it and take to your local auto parts store they can test for you and usually for free.

99 Saturn SL clutch lost pressure while driving, won't go into gear while car is on, What do I do?


You don't state mileage on the car but I'm betting well over 100K. The master cylinder is sold as a one piece kit which has the line and the slave cylinder attached to it. More than likely your slave cylinder has gone bad, which means you'll have to drop the transmission to get it out as it's an internal mechanism that pushes your throw out bearing to engage your clutch. Yes it's time to also change the clutch and pressure plate too, you may as well as long as you have to drop the transmission AND in order to do that my friend, you're going to have fun, because the whole front of the car has to be lifted and the WHOLE X sub-frame has to be dropped which means struts and all have to be disconnected. NOT a fun driveway weekend job unless your young, don't mind bending and kneeling on concrete and have power tools, air guns, to make it easier. Strong arms if you're going to attempt it with hand tools. Good luck to you.

2001 Saturn manual stick shift just popped and started wobbling loosely while i was shifting from 1st to 2nd. My clutch works but, the stick shift won't go into any gear


sounds like your washers/bearings/spacers finally degraded. To make sure, pop off the little flexy cover. You will see a linkage that goes straight into the transmission. If the bearings there (the little white plastic ones) look eaten up, that's most likely your problem.

Does a saturn sl1 2001 have a single or double transmission?


An SL1 has a single overhead camshaft, SOHC, engine. It has but one transmission. If it has a clutch pedal next to the brake pedal, it is a manual shift/transmission, if there is only a brake pedal, then it is an automatic transmission.

I turn the key everything works but the car won't start


If it's an automatic transmission "make sure" it's in park or neutral. If so possibly a bad neutral safety switch. If a Manual transmission just get a bunch of friends to push you and pop the clutch in 1st or 2nd gear....and away you go. Make sure you turn the key when popping the clutch.

95 saturn sl 2 5 speed manual transmission, clutch pedal is fine. shifter wont go into gear


This vehicle has a pair of shift cables which attatches to the shifter and runs to the transmission shift housing.To diagnose,removal of the center console is in order so you can inspect and verify the shifter/cable connections and movement,then verify the cables move the linkages properly at the transmission . These cables are a fairly common failed part and sold as the set,these are a dealer item and no aftermarket cables are available .

My 97 Saturn SL will trun over but there is no fire to the spark plugs and the car will not start. If I push start it, it starts right up when I pop the clutch. I turn the engine off and try the key and...


I would suggest that should try and test the car with another car battery first, if it works, then you can just try and get another Car Battery instead.
Hope it helps you out.
Goodluck!
