I have a 1991 Saturn SL2 (SOHC) that I'm trying to get going. Replaced most of the fuel system which is good now. Tried to start and got a click sound. I assumed it was the starter. Took the starter off...


The SL2 is a DOHC, the SL1 is a SOHC. You have put more money into it already than it is worth. Seems like a free check of the crankshaft being locked up might have been a first move before expending money. There were several small improvements made to the Saturn after 91, the fist year. I would suggest looking around for a 95 where your new parts will still swap in, possibly even a 96. You can get one for less than $500 if you look around. Stay away from automatic transmissions in Saturns.

OK I don't know if this is your problem but my 92 sl2 is kinda the same way. my sl2s ECTS went out and it dose the same this is what it looks like4c01145.jpg you will have to remove the air duct to get to it and this is were it's located keep in mind there are two of them you want to unplug the one with two wires it is lower on the block. but do not remove it.

after unpluging it try starting your car if it starts them you will have to get a new ECTS Coolant Temp Sensor. btw don't drive around with it unpluged just becouse it runs dosen't mean you should use it like that.

98 saturn sl2 won't start


if all it does is click with a new battery it is not the alternator because all the alternator does is charge the battery i would take the starter or selinoid off if it isnt built in with the starter and have it tested the same as you did the battery

96 saturn sl2 won't start


Not enough information.Need to know if the engine CRANKS,or turns over,just won't start up and run,or if when you turn the ignition key,nothing happens at all.If the engine cranks and turns over,just won't run,you have to check for fuel supply and spark to the spark plugs.If nothing happens at all when turning the key,could be a bad starter,battery,alternator,PRNDL switch.
