Have you tried using a fuel injector cleaner? If that doesn't work perhaps actually having them cleaned.

A timing belt gives no sign, its a scheduled replacement. See if cam is turning while trying to crank engine. If its not, the belt is broken. The engine will usually crank faster than normal because there isnt any compression.

2000 Saturn sl1 has loud engine noise which seems to be either the (dead) a/c unit, something else on the serpentine belt (very few miles on it), or it could be the timing belt (which I read is an issue...


the best way to determine the cause of the noise is to remove the drive belt and start the engine for a few minutes. if it is in the drive belt components then the noise will cease. if not then the noise will remain.

I have a 2000 year saturn sl..it now has a 1996 single overhead cam..this 1996 motor is compatible with the 2000 saturn? the tranny seems to slip with the 1996 motor? maybe wire priblem to tranny?


When the engine was replaced the sensors off the 2000 should have gone on the 96. The engines are basically the same, but the sensors are what can cause all sorts of problems.

2000 Saturn SL2 runs fine until stopped at a stop sign, etc., then it seems to idle rough - what could be causing this problem? Was told, maybe old gas since it had been sitting for about 4 months.


reasearch "intake manifold gasket". i have the same car, and the same problem, and everything ive read so far points to the intake manifold gasket. apparently during production there was an error that caused the original gaskets to crease. i would suggest taking some brake or carb cleaner and spraying it around intake #1 while the car is idling in park, this should cause the engine to idle rougher. if it does the gasket is your problem.
here's a link to another thread that sheds a lot of light on the issue, and even has some instructions on how to repair.

My friend had the same symptoms on his Saturn that you're describing. It ended up to be the timing belt was worn and timing had slipped. Check your owners manual and you should find when you're timing belt should be changed. I'm willing to bet money that it's should of been done a while ago.

I have a 2000 Saturn Sl, and I have no reverse. It seems to go forward fine, just no reverse......


I'm not a car Expert but I think you need this looked at by a mechanic,  our family car lost the primary drive gear,  When we took it to a mechanic we found that it needed a new transmission, We paid $3000+/- for a new transmission.  I hope you can resolve this,
