If the smoke is thick and white you have a blown head gasket. The car would basically look like it is making clouds.

If the smoke is black that is too much fuel and is likely the result of a failed ignition module.

1995 Saturn engine revs up and engine runs hot and stall


I assume you mean the engine seems to idle high, quickly overheats and stalls. If that is the case, it may have a bad head gasket. To verify, check the coolant recovery bottle and look for dark engine oil floating on the coolant and/or excessive white smoke from the exhaust pipe. If neither of these symptoms are present, check the ECM for error codes - there is a chance the catalytic converter is plugged or something in the emissions system or the ECM itself has failed.

1995 Saturn SL1 Manual Transmission


Sounds like the friction surface of the clutch disc is slipping. You would have to install a new clutch (clutch disc, pressure plate, and clutch release bearing), and have the flywheel surface cut and polished back to perfect smooth by a shop.
Manual transmission gears don't slip like automatics. And lack of fluid in the transaxle or the hydraulic clutch system won't cause this either.

I have a 1996 Saturn Sl2. It ran out of gas one day and sat on the side of the road for a few days. Well, I finally got it towed home, and changed the fuel filter. The fuel pump is good. But, it is smoking...


Here are your possible problems. 1)Leaking injectors(Rare), Leaking Fuel Pressure Regulator(Common) Bad Engine Temp Sensor. (Common), Here is what i would check. Find the Regulator and pull off vacuum line, (located on fuel rail near injectors) check if there is fuel present in line. If yes replace regulator. Check temp sender with a scanner your looking for a reading in the (-) or below 140deg F, when car is first started and smoke present if yes replace engine temp sender for computer(not sender for guage!) IF both those pass inspection replace injectors(Not common problem)

The clutch is going bad. Over time the springs on the pressure plate loses their tension, allowing the clutch disc to slip.

High idle/low idle pattern


This issue is caused by the egr valve being stuck open, more than likely. Just remove it and clean the plunger on it. Also clean out the two ports that are in the intake. Check out saturnfans.com for more information. I hope this helps.
