Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Saturn SC 1. My car won't start for 1 hour after driving for 10-12 min and then shutting down the engine. I got my battery and alternator check. Please help me if somebody can tell me what you think the problem could be. One mechanic said it can be starter. The problem is after one hour the car starts in the first try, and hence I don't Think it can be a starter problem. Any help is appreciated abd Thanks in advance.

It would be worth checking/replacing the ignition module ( see if you have a spark when it WON'T start) . Coil assy are plentiful and the most likely given your description. Very prone to over heating and shutting down. Good luck

Just Replaced the Water Pump....Still wont start??? If my Water Pump goes out while driving and I attempt to start the car several times, does this cause valve damage or any kind of damage?

Pulling plug wirs is a big mistake unless you know what your doing and you don't sound like you do. It sound like a frost plug is corroded away. You should be able to start your engine even if it had no coolant at al. the coolant only cools the engine ,it does not stop it from running.Now you need a wiring diagram for your engine to see if you have the wires in the right place.......otherwise the engine will not start ever.Worse case could be a head gasket and if that is the case give it to someone whom wants a free car to work on themselves...............Ken
