Sounds like an ICM to me. In Saturns, it's the base unit that your spark plug coil packs plug into. The modules will work when cold, but once the car and module warms up, the module quits giving spark signals. Once the car warms up, the ICM will not work as long in between failures, due to the hot engine bay.

    ok I have worked as a saturn technician for years ,so lets look at the basics have you anyway to check fuel pressure? and read the codes? I worked on one once that did simular things and it ended up the fuel pump which is in fuel tank.the only way to check is with a fuel pressure guage needs 40 lbs of pressure to run well continuous.

Disable my security it iprevening me form startin the car


This is a pretty common problem on GM cars. Expensive to fix, and even harder to diagnose. Read this info found on this link. It will help you understand the problem and offers some good solutions to beat this yourself. Bypassing this terrible system is a lot better than trying to have it fixed. Instead of paying the dealer mechanic to stumble thru the system and charge you for unwanted items, do this yourself.

i would check with your local salvage yards to see if they have one in stock, it would be cheaper, than buying new.

I have a crack engine. Need to put in another engine. Will a 2001 engine fit into a 1998 saturn sl1


No, you need a 96 through 98 engine, make sure the one you get is the same as yours, that is if you have an SL1 your donor car must be an SL1, SW1 or SC1 and if you have an SL2 then your donor car must be an SL2, an SW2, or an SC2. You can buy rebuilt engines for about 2000 with core exchange
might make more sense if you intend to keep it a while and if a manual then do the clutch while it is out.

What's the difference bteween a 99' saturn sl and a saturn sl1? My 99' saturn sl wont go in reverse, what might be wrong with it?


The SL2 is a DOHC 1.9L and the SL1 is a SOHC 1.9L. They have different transmissions, the DOHC uses a 15 inch wheel while the SOHC has a 14 inch wheel. So when you are shopping around for another transmission you must get one from the same type of engine. Saturn auto transmissions seem to be problematic, I stuck with the manual trannys and had very good luck.

WANT TO PUT A 1996 LS -1 SATURN, MANUAL TRANSMISSION AND MOTOR INTO A 1995 LS-2 SATURN BODY AND CHASSIS. WILL I HAVE TO CHANGE THE COMPUTER? DOES THE DESIGN CHANGE FROM 95 TO 96 EVEN MAKE IT POSSIBLE...


There isn't much difference between them. The SL series didn't change between 95 and 96 except for the ecm is OBD2 on the 96. Are both cars stick shift? The difference in the SL1 and the SL2 are the cams. 1 for sohc and 2 for dohc. So what you are asking is can I take out my dohc motor and install a sohc motor right?
