You need to get the car off the ground. It is on the firewall side, and you can only get to it from below. Use and GOOD jack and jack stands, do NOT try to do it with just a tire jack.

try putting it in neutral and start it, but it sounds like you need to replace or adjust the neutral safety switch

Starter sounds weak and sputter-y when trying to start car on a slight hill. but not when it's parked flat.


Set the parking brake first, then put it in park, when you kill it. That way the parking brake is holding it, not the tranny. See if it makes any difference? Also, check proper voltage and ground for the starter motor.

Saturn sl1 2001 one stay running when put in gear


The first thing that comes to mind is the IAC idle air control. this adjusts the throttle minimum position based on block temp, transmission gear, AC on/off etc. It may be indicating "check engine" Many local parts stores will read these error codes for free. It will help diagnose the problem. There are other conditions that can cause this but start there.

For an unknown reason the gearbox has put it's self into "Limp" mode, this could be die to an issue with a sensor or a clogged filter, Check the state of your fluid and it may need a filter change and a fluid flush.

On the throttle body you will find the IAC idle control valve, with two wires going to it, unplug and plug it back if no change then bang on the IAC if it goes to normal idle change one with used one and should be fine.
Idle aslo goes high IF a vacume hoses get cracked or come off.

Il.com i have 2001 saturn sl1, i have full power but will not turn over, no cranking, no clicking, nothing


If it is an Automatic transmission, try putting it in Neutral and retry. Sometimes they don't always get into park all of the way, and you can only start an automatic car in park or neutral.
