Question about 1995 Saturn Sl
1. Relieve the fuel pressure. (in order to relieve fuel pressure: 1. remove fuel cap. 2. remove fuel pump relay from the relay panal located under the center console. 3. start engine and wait for engine to stall, then turn off the ignition key. 4. Position a small screwdriver in the fuel pressure test port and carefully depress the valve to allow any excess fuel to bleed out of the fuel line.)
2. Remove the cable from the negative battery terminal.
3. Remove the fuel tank.
4. The fuel pump/fuel level sending unit assembly is located inside the fuel tank. Its held in place by a lock ring. Using a brass punch and hammer, carefully tap the lock ring couterclockwise and sperate the cover from the tank. ***WARNING*** Don not use a steel punch-a spark could cause an explosion.
5. Pull the fuel pump assembly out of the tank. Be careful when manipulating the module out of the fuel tank. it will be necesarry to angle it in various positions as you extract it.
6. Remove the O ring from the opening.
7. Inspect the filter on the lower end of the fuel pump. If its dirty, clean it with solvent and blow it out with compressed air. If its too dirty to be cleaned, replace it.
8. The Fuel pum cannot be disassembled except for removal of the fuel level sending unit. In the event of a defective fuel pump, replace the eniter assembly as a single unit or module.
Hope this Helps!

My 95 sat sl1 has been acting up since the thermostat stuck closed, replaced thermo and coolant temp. sensor. Coolant system then check out ok. Drove five miles to check running condition and fuel up. Tried to start after fueling, would turn over, but not fire the first three tries like it wasn't getting fuel. Since then ( three weeks ago ) I have been driving it only to and from work. The car runs great, but when iding it will stay at about 1100 RPM for while then jump up to 1400 back down to 800, then steady back out at 1100. It bounces like this a few more times then eventully stalls. After stalling will not fire until I let it set for a few hours. I have replaced the fuel filter, trottle position sensor, and idle air contol valve. Checked all fuses/ relays and cleaned the EGR valve. Nothing helped. Could it be the fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, or fuel level sending unit? perhaps a vacuum leak? I don't know. Please help with any info or knowledge of the problem. The car is a 95, but the engine is a 99. In 2005, one of pistons broke so engine was replaced. Its been runnin' like a champ 'til now. Thank you for your help.

View the video on You Tube by Richpin06a. It was very helpful. I don't do many repairs on cars, but with the help of this video, I replaced the waterpump on my Saturn last weekend. It was easy, and I didn't have to remove the engine.

have you had your radiator pressure checked? when there is not enough pressure to keep your coolant moving steady through the system it will cause the same issues.

To replace the fuel pump u must remove the gas tank from the car, to do this u need to have the car as high off the ground as poss, a floor jack and safety jack stands are a must, after u have the car in the air and secured on jack stands put the floor jack under the gas tank and apply light pressure to support the tank, position it between the two metal straps that secure it into the car, remove the bolts or nuts that hold the metal straps at one engine and drop the tank down far enough to disconnect the electrical connector and the fuel and vapor lines and the fill and vent lines, then carefully lowe the tank and bring it out, remove the retainer that holds the fuel pump module in the tank, pay attention to the position of the tank fuel pump module for proper installation of the new fuel pump module, reverse above, in all about a 3-4 hour job with a helper.
