Fairly reliable car as long as it was maintained correctly. some of these cars had a problem with the climate control changing temp without touching controls.
another problem was the timing chain failing.
also with that kind of mileage i would have the transmission, power steering and coolant systems flushed.
good luck!

Can you access the fuel pump on saturn 2003 saturn l200 from back seat or trunk?


I do not think so as the passenger compartment need to be CO sealed. You will have to lift the car in the Rear to remove.

My 2003 L200 Saturn fuel pump quit working at 100010 mile. The garage has replaced it 2 times now in the last 100 miles. They have no idea what is causing it. It is now out again.


You will need it at a shop that can run diagnostics on saturns. I sure hope you can find an independent shop, and not have to take it to a GM dealership, who like people with big fat wallets.
You will need probably a high end scanner to scan the body control module. I think, but not positive, that the bcm has a hand in fuel pump control.

Do these cars have problems with the timing chain? Just bought a 2002 saturn l200 with 145,000 miles on it for a very good price, car runs great, should i be concerned about the timing chain? Thank you


to be honest im not sure if you have a timing belt or chain if its a chain i would not worry about it going bad on the other hand if its a belt they do recomend that you have them checked around 100,00 miles. shop around for the best deal and if they tell you it needs changed make them show it to you and tell them you want to compair it to a new one so you can see if its worn out for yourself. never just take there word..it can be a little expensive...

I have a saturn L200 series 2003 I have heard timing chain needs to be replaced by 100,000 miles but a mechanic told me I didn't have a timing chain is that correct?


There was a factory recall of the timing chain on the 2.2 Ecotec. This was done for me on my LW200, but then Saturn was still in business. Dealers are still around doing service though. Look over here for inside Saturn dope:

What is the life expectancy of a 2005 Toyota motor/engine? I may be buying a 2005 Toyota with 65,555 miles. The asking price is $10,000. It has only had 1 owner.


It all depends on how it is maintained. It is a reliable car with a reliable engine. The engine will outlast the car. However, if the previous owner didn't take care of it, it will eventually let you down. A good friend of mine owns an 06 Corolla which he bought used last fall.. It has not been perfect but he also doesn't care about his cars. (His previous car went at least 75,000 miles without so much as an oil change.)

I think you're in the clear!

2003 Saturn L200. Car will turn over but will not


I have the same model. Congrats you made it over a 100,000 miles! Most of them failed after as little as 20,000 or around 78,000 miles becaue there was a design flaw in that the timing chain did not get any oil to it. I had the 78,000 mile engine. Mine failed while driving at 65 miles an hour on the expressway. Pretty much wrecked the engine. The problem with putting in a used engine is that no other type of engine will fit in this car and you can count on engine failure again at 20,000; 78,000 or from what you tell me after 100,000 miles. You would be better off investing in a down payment for a Toyota made here in America that gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I used to be an oldsmobile man and then reluctantly switched to Saturn but am fed up with GM completely now and all american car manufactures.

Your cat is plugged, its not letting your exhaust leave the engine thus causing all these problems. You need to get it changed as soon as possible. You can get a shop to put in a universal one they are usually very cheep but do it soon. They can get hot enough to start a fire as you have already seen.
