Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

1999 SATURN SL RECENTLY STARTED STALLING INTERMITTENTLY. IT STALLS AFTER DRIVING SHORT DISTANCES. AT FIRST IT WAS ONCE DURING A REGULAR DRIVING DAY. STALLS ON REGULAR ROADS AND THRUWAY DRIVING. IF YOU LET IT SIT FOR 20 MINS TO 1/2 HOUR IT WOULD START AGAIN AND THEN BE OK FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY. LATELY ITS BEEN STALLING EACH TIME YOU DRIVE IT. AGAIN IF YOU LET IT SIT AND COOL OFF IT WILL START AGAIN BUT THEN STALL AFTER DRIVING A SHORT DISTANCE. IT THREW A CODE FOR A CRANKSHAFT SENSOR WHICH WAS REPLACED BUT STILL STALLS. MECHANIC IS STUMPED AT THIS POINT. CAN YOU HELP ?

Did your mechaniic check the fuel injectors, it very possibly could be 1 of them acting up, also have your mechanic to give your vehicle a fuel pressure test, this will tell if the pressure is within the specs for the year and engine size that you have. also have him to check the coil, or coils, 1 of them could be heating up, and breaking down, and after cooled for a while, they have been known to work again, untill they heat up again. also have him to check the fuel pump relay to see if it is getting bad, he might have to tempoarily replace it with another one just to see if it is acting up.

Motor stalls


 Check the engine coolant sensor and idle control valve, if it  stalls when pushing the brake pedal check the ground in the trunk ant left bottom corner.  Tail lights and fuel pump share the same ground.

1993 Saturn SL stalling


First, if the SES light is on or comes on a little after it is running it has a code set in the computer. Itis easy to read the code on an OBD1 system by jumping the A-B terminals on the DLC Data Link, block under the drivers side see the following link for better explanination of reading the codes, http://www.troublecodes.net/GM/
Also review the following on the O2 Sensor and coolent temp sensor http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37884 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ9vtD_ssjg, good luck you can fix this vehicle easily.

Will not start after it stalls untill about 5-10 minutes


This sounds like a plugged evap valve. Try opening the gas cap when this happens. If the evap system is malfunctioning, it will use gas, but will not let air back in to replace the liquid leaving the tank thus collapsing the tank and cutting off fuel. It then takes a while to break the vacuum in the tank. If the car starts right away when you open the gas cap, have your evap system serviced by a professional. Another quick diagnosis is to take a look at the fuel tank. If it has been collapsed there will be small creases in it.

I just had this problem on a 97 Saturn.
