    right getting somewhere now is this engine a petrol variant or a diesel and if a diesel does it have a turbo or not .as this sort of fault can vary depending on which type of engine ,now if its a petrol then it could be a clogged up gauze filter in the fuel tank ,then it could be a mass air flow sensor and i would like to know what type of engine as to what solutions i can offer

Timing belt might have slipped a tooth causing the engine to misfire. Check that the crankshaft and camshaft is in the correct position and the tensioner is working properly. Ideally, if the timing belt is replaced, the tensioner and the water pump also has to be replaced. Or you might be able to just replace the spring for the tensioner. A less than $5 part.

Fuel pump, fuel pressure will read within specs until the pump gets hot, and sometimes this shows up intermittently, I discovered this with my Moms 96 Buick Regal, it was such an intermittent symptom / problem that I couldn't find the problem for about 6 weeks of troubleshooting, but I stumbled on the fuel pump not holding pressure(even after testing many times) then that one time I caught it, and replaced it and that fixed the problem.
Good Luck !

It appears that your brake booster system has a major vacuum leak which is causing the engine to go lean and stall. Check the hose between the intake manifold and the brake booster. It may be cracked or loose causing outside air to enter the hose when the brake is applied.

1998 Saturn SW2, 180,000+ miles. Recent starting problem.


It does sound like an electrical issue.  Double check if the ground connections are all OK.  You may have to check out the wirings, even the wiring loom if all wires are still OK.
