SOURCE: '98 SL2 Saturn Traction Control

Traction control helps limit tire slip in acceleration on slippery surfaces. In the past you had to feather the gas pedal to prevent the drive wheels from spinning wildly on slippery pavement. Many of today's vehicles employ electronic controls to limit power delivery for the driver, eliminating wheel slip and helping the driver accelerate under control. Don't turn it off.

First check fuel pressure before the fuel filter, then check the fuel pressure after the fuel filter, these filters are also the fuel regulator, if it is clogged then it will route the fuel back to the tank, fuel filter is around $60 for that car.
Good luck

Replaced starter did tuneup and replaced tensioner and serpintine belt on 1993 Saturn SL2 Replaced starter Car does not want to start, but when it does start, it will not stay running. Please help


Your starter is probably fine if it does eventually start. The problem you seem to be having is the hard start part and the not stay running part.

Chances are your Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS) has not been replaced. The one from the factory is plastic and cracks which tells the PCM that the engine is -40F (40 degrees below zero). The fix is to get the brass tipped one from Autozone or the like and to replace it. It is a 10 minute job and requires a 13MM deep well socket. It is on the driver's side of the head and is under the intake tubing. You have two on your Saturn but you only need to replace one, the other is for the gauge cluster. Replace the two wire one.

This cracked ECTS causes the PCM to dump a lot of fuel into the engine thinking it needs to get warm. However, too much fuel will make the car near impossible to start.

1992 Saturn SL2 stalls after running about 5 minutes


my only guess is a vacuum hose leak. possibly a loose air filter housing, or the mass air flow sensor. look for any hoses unplugged. if nothing is noticed, try cleaning out your fuel system. if that doesnt solve it, then it would be something an experienced mechanic would have to come and examine it personally.

2001 Saturn SL2 won't stay running until it warms up


I would take it to autozone to have the code read. It could be your idle control sensor, or it could even be O2 sensors. Hard to say without knowing the code.
