Actually, I have had this very thing happen to my SL2. It is totally random I may have to wait 45 min for it to start. I downgraded my gas to the 87 since the manual requires 85 octane fuel. try it may work for you,

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.

97 saturn sl turns over but wont start


1. Check to see if you are getting fuel. You should be able to hear the fuel pump start when you first turn the key on. It should run for 2 secs and then stop. Someone can listen by removing the gas cap and putting their ear close to the fill nozzle too.
2. If you do not hear the pump, remove the air cleaner inlet hose and spray a couple of squirts of WD40 or starting fluid in the intake section entering the engine. Try starting the car again. If it starts for a few seconds and then dies.. you have a fuel pump problem.
3. Remove a spark plug wire and insert a screw driver or something metal into the inside of the wire. Have someone try starting the car while you are holding the screw driver near a metal part of the engine. You should see a spark.. if there is any..
4. The most common problem if it has NO spark is the Crankshaft position sensor..
Good Luck..

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!

I just got a 97 saturn it cranks but wont start. i replaced the eecm under the coil packs. it sparks 2 times and nothing after that. the battery was bad and i replaced that. same problem.


make sure ign module bolts ar tight and module is making good contact with trans case, if all is good you probebly have a bad crankshaft position sensor causing no spark.

Wont start


Use a spark tester and plug it into the wire and plug...turn engine over and see if there is any spark. If there is take ether and spray it into the air intake and see if it will start...after all of that if no start let us know what you have done, and ask again.
