SOURCE: why does the engine stall when accelerating?

1. Remove the airfilter box and try to rev. it up but dont yank it up rev it up in a 3sec time interval from 0-9000rpm. If it revs up replace your airfilter it might look ok but the material it is made of ages and with damp in the air closes up the micro holes in it and chokes the engine as soon as you rev it up. If you have an airbox don't fit those smaller individiual airfilters you would have to get it jet dynoed, what I am saying is fit the same type air filter back on or you will have fuel air problems.
2. Remove the exhaust manifold from the head, start it up and rev it up in a time interval of 3sec from 0-9000rpm. If it revs up your exhaust is blocked and you either have a wasp stuck in your exhaust outlet or it is aged and blocked. Try closing your mouth and nose with your hands and breath in or out, this is the same with your engine.

3. If this does not rectify your problem you will have to look at your carburator float levels or your coil packs. Let me know if it work or don't so that we could fault find your problem this is the easiest and the firts steps to follow.

2001 Saturn SL transmission won't engage

hangon. your leaving something out. myguess is you had the ebrake pulled so the car didn't roll when it was in gear. and now the car wont move at all or what? you left alot of important info out. if it is running and wont move at any point you broke something in the trany or a driveshaft. you should not be able to shift the trany into any gear if the engine is running. the clutch is turning and unless the clutch is disengaged you wont be able to shift. knowing that i am guessing you broke it good and need a new trany

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
