Question about 1998 Saturn SL

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Saturn SC2 engine stutter.

I have a 1998 Saturn SC2, sometimes when pulling away from a stop, the engine stutters until it has built up enough revs, then runs normally. The problem is exasperated if I have the air conditioning on as well. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like you need to change the transmission fluid the filter is under the air filter box and the drain plug is a 17mm on the bottom of the trans closest to the engine about mid ways between the car warm the car up good then drain the fluid beware the fluid will be hot the filter is like a oil filter it just unscrews fill with proper fluid do not over fill hope this helps you

I'd repalce the fuel filter, also, you might need a tune-up, plugs and wires. I'd check the air filter too. Do you have the check engine light on?

Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

You'll need to have someone scan the computer for the codes.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you get the codes you can research them online or in this question.

1993 Saturn sc2 stutters and backfires accerlerating


Check to see it th chain guides are worn. this can cause a retarded or advance on timing. Also do a compression check if you can, this will show that the valves are opening and closing on time. Run some injection cleaner through it first as a sticky injector could also be an issue.
