It should run on 87 just fine. Have you checked for spark on all for cylinders. Does it just miss at idle or does it run bad on acell too?

My check engine came on so i had a diagnostic test ran on it. came back as a bad 02 sensor. i replace it but car seems still hesitant when i go to accelrate like its not getn gas. should i get a fuel...

If the check engine lite doesnt come back on and no other codes, i would try the cleaner in the gas tank first, there are alot of great prduct to add in with your gas.Try that first before you get a fuel injection cleaning, and maybe change the fuel filter also.

I have a 93 saturn sl1 and its getting too much gas, what controls the fuel that the fuel injecter sprays?

A fuel pressure regulator is located on the injector rail. It generally looks like a round chrome or black diaphragm with a vacuum line attached.
This is what controls the amount of fuel the injector get. They are fairly simple to replace, just shut off the car, make sure that you have released all the pressure in the fuel rail and then remove the regulator by removing the 2 (Generally 2) mounting screws and the vacuum line. Re install in reverse order and that's it.

I have a 1993 saturn manual transmission and when

Time to find a much lower mileage used tranny and have it put in. Replace the clutch components with new stuff while you are at it.Note that the transmissions 91-99 will most likely swap but you must know whether you have an SL1 or SL2 and the donor car must be the same..

I have a 93 chevy lumina and i smell gas when i park and my low coolant light stay on and i dont know whats the problem

First you may have gas tank leak, put a box underneath the car to see about that.
Second check your antifreeze but make sure its the correct kind. The wrong kind can ruin and engine.

When starting any fuel injected vehicle you DO NOT need to press the gas peddle. Once the ignition is turned on the fuel pump energizes and fuel is injected into the intake.

I'm wondering about 1993 Saturn station wagons. One website describes two models, the sw1 and the sw2. Another distinguishes two fuel injection types for that year's wagons, mfi and tbi. Do they...

mfi = multi port injection
tbi = throttle body injection
the way to tell is look on the intake plenum and see if there is a "carb" sitting there. That's tbi.
Intake plenum with 4 or more fuel lines going to each cylinder is a "MPI" (multiport) system....accordianman
