1995 saturn will crank but wont start it is a manual transmission and wont start by popping clutch either

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. How long since a tune-up?
Have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check for fuel injector pulse.

My car died in the middle of an intersection. I say died, but really the engine shut off. Power steering and lights went as well. The AC and Radio were still working. I have a 1994 Saturn SL1. Do you have...

Yeah, if all the fuses are good. Then have someone crank the car while you hold a plug wire about 1/2" from the plug while they crank it. See if you have spark, careful not to touch the body. you will get shocked if the coils are good. It there is spark then spray some starting fluid into the intake while someone cranks. If it starts then more likely you need to look into a fuel problem. See if the 2 things work first and let me know how it goes.

My 1997 saturn tuns over but wont start . i have tested every sensor and they are good.

Pull all 4 spark plug wires off at the coils,have someone crank your engine.You should see spark jumping between all 4 coils.If not you probally have a bad crank position sensor failed.If not that Ignition control You can check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail if you have a fuel pressure tester,might check the Inj. fuse located in the underhood fuse block.Hope this helps.Also You may try to push accelerator pedal all the floor this will put the engine in clear flood mode in case it's flooded.

Will crank, but wont fire! HELP

Only rotate the engine in the proper direction when checking the timing setting. I recommend that you recheck the settings and assure that you are not out 180°, and recheck the spark plug wires to assure that they are on the correct plugs and spark packs. You need to step back, take a deep breath, and recheck/verify that timing and wiring is correct.

I just got a 97 saturn it cranks but wont start. i replaced the eecm under the coil packs. it sparks 2 times and nothing after that. the battery was bad and i replaced that. same problem.

make sure ign module bolts ar tight and module is making good contact with trans case, if all is good you probebly have a bad crankshaft position sensor causing no spark.

Wont start

Use a spark tester and plug it into the wire and plug...turn engine over and see if there is any spark. If there is take ether and spray it into the air intake and see if it will start...after all of that if no start let us know what you have done, and ask again.

99` saturn won`t start. I checked the fuel pump, it has spark,

Have you checked if your getting spark. You can do this by removing a plug and having someone hit the key for you. watch the spark plug don't touch it or you will get zapped. If you see a strong spark you should be good. Do this for all plugs. Alternatively you can try the crank position sensor this should be mounted between the intake manifold and the starter. Follow the wires to the location and unscrew the sensor.

If that is not the problem and your getting spark and gas to the cylinders. Let me know
