Question about 1997 Saturn SL

1 Answer

RMPs won't drop on 97 SL2

When I push the clutch in on my 97 Saturn SL2 the RPM's don't drop, they will go to about 2500. When I come to a stop they will go down after about 5 seconds, but only if I stop. Speed sensor maybe? The idle is ok, because if I'm not moving it stays at 700 RPMs.

On the s series it was very common for carbon to build up inside the idle air control valve-IAC valve.there are too expensive and are easy to fix-buy the part so you know what is looks like the look at your throttle body(follow your air filter box tube to the top of the engine-the throttle body)the iac is right there.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with


I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

97 Saturn SL2 won't turn over


Check the neutral-saftey switch.  If it is a clutch, the starter will generally engage and the car will generally lurch forward.  Most newer cars are equiped with a switch that detects when the car is in-gear & wont permit it to turn over.  Could be the clutch but go for the cheap fix first.

1997 Saturn SL2 Sunroof problem


it sounds like the motor's gears went. I had the same problem. To see if it is the motor or track drop the headliner down a lil in the front near the map lights. Then push up on the center of the motors drive with a flat head screw driver and turn if the sunroof opens then it is the motor if not it is the track. You can buy new or use cost is up to you her is one on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/99-SATURN-POWER-SUNROOF-MOTOR-96-97-98-404-328_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50459QQihZ018QQitemZ280272955699QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohosting
