3 things to start up the car, air, spark and fuel. First make sure no issues with battery. Check if fuel is being pumped, if not check fuel filter and then pump. If ok, then check for spark, if no spark, check leads and then coil pack. If ok, check mass air flow sensor. There could be other issues like crank angle sensor, or knock sensor, cam sensor. Since you have been to the dealer I assume that the dealer has scanned ecu for fault codes. So check the above 3 things and let me know how you go.

Which brand? What kind of gasoline? Some cars doesn't run with all gasoline grades also there is some gas station with poor quality of gasoline.
Happened to my car too, I always use SHELL but one day I stop in the MOBIIL gas station to put some gas, got home and the next day the car won't start had to by the STP aditive to put in the gas tank. wait about 10 minutes and car starts fine.
Another thing is my car won't run good with all gasoline grades
I always use the regular one.

I have a 2001 saturn sc1 that is having intermittent starting problems. At times after its been driven ill go out to leave again and it won't start. No clicking when I try and start it either. Wait for...


I am having the same problem. did you figure out what was wrong with yours. I have tested all of the wires in the harness under the dash, they r fine. I pulled off the starter and had it tested; O'rilies said it was fine. It is a 5 speed, and I can push start the car just fine any time. Like yours, some days my car starts, some days it doesn't. The days it starts, it runs fine with no problems starting or running. the problem is the days that it wont start.

Nothing when the key is turned


chec ur ignition switch its in the stearing colum-also the harness wiring could be ageing-that resister i think has to do with the fusable link on ur battry responsible for starting-inspec distributer cap also-

I had a similar problem the car would start fine then when driving it would just stop - if i waited long enough it would restart just fine and the same thing would happen. I replaced the crank sensor and the cars been running fine ever since. Even though the sensor ohmed good when cool???
