Question about 2000 Saturn SW2

1 Answer

After driving for 25-30 minutes, the car won't start for about 3 hours

Recently, My saturn wagaon won't start after it has been running for about 20-30 minutes. However, once cooled down, 3 plus hours, it starts right up. In the moening it starts better than after it has been sitting in the hot sun all day.

Any chance you've got 'Titanium' spark plugs. We had this same issue, and found it was caused by a mechanic replacing our plugs with the titanium ones. If they were hot, they didn't ignite properly during startup. If you let the car cool, it would start right up (~2 hours). Changing the plugs for good quality old-style plugs and the problem hasn't occurred since.

Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.

Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

Sounds like a low coolant indicator.
Is the car running hot? Check and top off coolant (Radiator fluid) but do NOT open radiator cap if the engine has run in the past hour. Most times you top off the fluid by filling seperate reservoir
