    I just want to know a good place to get instructional information on changing the fuel filter and pump for the 2000 saturn. i'm pretty certain one of them is the problem and don't want to go to a mechanic if i can avoid it.

You may need to check fuel pressure after the engine warms up and shuts off. Maybe the fuel pump gets hot and stops. Have you checked for spark after it dies?

Chevy S10 2.2 trouble starting but then runs fine.


Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge yet ?
Sounds like the pump is weak.

2000 Blazer Will not stay running


Wow, you seemed to have changed what I would have recommended to someone in your shoes.

If the fuel pump relay is hot, I think that there could be a crossed wire somewhere.

I would take it to an auto electric shop to diagnose problem if it's worth putting more money into it.

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.

I have a 2000 Honda Passport. Once mine stalled, it would not restart. Sounded as if out of gas. I thought fuel pump. Took it to service station. They found a short in the electrical system. The fuse kept popping. They replaced blown fuse in coil and module. The tested misc wiring in main harness. They found and repaired bad wires in main harness for module and coils in left front inner fender.

I have a 2000 Buick LeSabre with a 3.8L engine. Engine dies all of a sudden without warning. Let it sit for awhile and engine starts and runs perfectly and then happens again. Mechanic at repair shop is...


I had the same problem with my 2000 le sabre custom. It would die in the middle of the interstate. I could throw it into neutral and it would restart and keep on going or I'd have to let it sit for about 5 minutes and it would usually start. There is no code, Dealer said to bring it in when it's happening. Yeah, right..if it's drivable..it's not happening. Replaced the fuel pump twice, the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, but still happened randomly. I had to stop driving the car because it was unsafe.

97 saturn sc2


I had the same problem with a 97 sc2. The fix for my car was the temp sensor that controls the extra fuel when engine is cold it didn't sense that the engine was warmed up and added extra fuel flooding the engine.
