Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

The car starts fine in the morning or if it has been sitting for many hours. If I try to restart it and it has been less than 2 hours since last driven,it will not start. When it does start it is prone to stalling out again, and stutters in intersections. At those times if a give it gas it stalls out and if I don't it will generally sputter and be okay.

It could be your water temperature sensor, possibly needs taking out and cleaning or replacing but first, if your doing a lot of short runs, go give it a good long blast up the road, it may be you've managed to build up a lot of fuel deposits on the internal sensors and they need cleaning of. Best done by getting the engine up to temperature on an good run. (20 miles at least)

Truck wont start in the morning or if it sitts for a couple of hours.I have 60 psi fuel pressure and i have spark. When i try to start it just keeps turning over. If I use starting fluid it starts right...


I think your fuel pressure is borderline.How accurate is the gauge? Those injectors usually wont work under 58psi. I would replace the fuel pumpp and filter if the truck has over 125K miles on the original pump. .

2004 Ford Taurus, problem started last night. Drove to store, came home & parked. Tried to restart to park closer to curb and would not start. Engine did not turn over. Got low oil pressure message,...


Well your vehicle is indicating a problem, did you or your husband check the oil quantity? If it is low replenish the quantity. Also your battery seems to be failing, when you park it for a long time it will gain a little bit of power, thus when you come outside in the morning it would be better off then if you turned off the car and ran into the gas station to refuel and tried to take off. This shouldn't be a problem if your alternator is working properly and charging the vehicle while you drive. You may want to have your husband remove it and bench test it at a Checkers/Autozone or a local auto parts facility.

well is the battery draining over the time its sitting?
could be a bad battery or alternator, and/or you might have something on the car constantly draining power from the battery.
best to have it looked at by a mechanic.

F150 ignition (won't Start)


If it turns over but just won't fire and the timing sounds fine when it does run you might consider your ignition switch.  Does it sound like it wants to fire but only just when you let go of the key?
