SOURCE: 1996 Saturn SL, 4 cylinder,
I also had the same problem with my 1996 Saturn SL1, and it also was the starter. I thought it was an electrical problem until, just on a whim I pulled the starter. One of the brushes was almost gone and the commutator looked like hell. I cleaned up the commutator and brushes, and it spun like a top for about a month, until the worn out brush finally died. I also ordered a new starter the same day of the cleaning. Just a word of advice if you will be buying a new starter, go on Ebay Motors and find the store dbelectrical. They sell brand new starters for $49.95 with no core charge plus $12 UPS shipping. So $61.95 vs $150+ at your local parts store....Myself and my friend from work have both bought and daily use starters from them with no problems or complaints to report.

SOURCE: SL2 ? 2000 starting problem
I had the same problem at one time and what the problem was is a short or an exposed wire connected to the starter which causes the voltage to fluctuate which in turn activates a security feature that stops the flow of fuel to the injectors. The car actually senses the possibility of a spark which could possibly ignite the fuel and be a fire hazard. If you turn the ignition on and off repeatedly after a certain amount of time the car will start and run fine. It is a very intermittent problem.

You might want to try replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Saab 93's and 95's are notorious for these faulty sensors. they don't cost much, mine cost around $55 with tax and it took me around 1 hour to replace. Go to this website: www.fixmysaab.com then search for 95_repair. They show you how to replace the sensor. They even include pictures and the tools you will need(only a long ratchet with a swivel attachment). Try this before taking it to a dealership as they will mostly likely charge you app $400 plus for less than an hours work! I hope this helps 8)
Peace and happy driving 8)

I actually have been dealing with this problem with my 2007 Mazda Cx-7 since I bought the car a little over a year ago with only 33,000 miles...its rediculous! I brought it to Mazda once before the warranty ran out and they told me it was fine, again after my warranty was over they told me it would cost $375 to order and replace the HID bulb..instead I bought the bulb off of partstrain.com for $80 and the bulb still did the same thing.... Finally brough it back to Mazda the diagnosis cost me $163.07 for them to tell me that my "Headlight Module" was out and it would be over an $800 fix! In your case if both of them are doing that it would be twice that! Mazda finally paid for the majority of it but won't return my $163.07 even though I told them there was a problem when I first bought the car!!!! In today's economy who has that much money to be throwing around trying to figure out whats wrong with the DEFECTED PARTS that Mazda places in its vehicles???!!! Good Luck!
