1992 Saturn SL1 jerks and jumps when accelerating

When I am giving gas to increase speed my 1992 SL1 automatic will **** and jump like it is running out of fuel. Once I get the speed increased it will settle down. This does not happen all the time.

I have a 1992 saturn when i try to speed up a little quick it starts jumping and sputering if you give it its time it will go as fast as you want though what could be the problem


Sounds like you might have a bad throttle postion sensor. I would also check to see if the throttle body needs cleaned and the fuel filter.

Hi I have a 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme, with a 3.1 liter engine. My problem is when the car warms at stops it runs rough. Sometimes shuts off. Sometimes when crusing at speeds 30-50 the car sort of jerks...


My 3.4 liter 91 Cutlass Supreme has similar problem when warm the engine misses (car jerks). But its fine at idle and without any accelerator pressure. The SERVICE ENGINE light also comes on intermittantly. I am going to test the ignition coils.

My 1999 saturn SL1 would not start w/o a jump. Then it began to start rather roughly now when i turn the ignition all i hear is 'electricity'. i have to get a jump to get it going


Sounds like you need to replace the battery. However you may have another issue and that could be your alternator. If the alternator is not recharging your battery while the car is running, then a new battery is going to die as well.

2002 Saturn SL1 - won't start, turn over, starts fine with jump


Have the alternator and battery checked. The battery may not be holding a charge. The alternator may not be charging the battery,it should put out between 14 and 15 volts,any less the alternator is bad.
