This is caused by a problem in the carburator, usually the needle valve is stuck open letting gas continue to flow into the motor even when the float bowl is full. Things to check for are that the float is still in tack and floats on the gas so it can close the valve. More likely there is something stuck in the needle valve holding it open. If the needle valve tip or seat is damaged it can also cause this problem.

How can i diagnose whether my cts or tbs or pcm is bad on my 2000 saturn sl2

Fuel pump testing should be done before assuming anything . An disconnecting O2 sensor is not going to do anything . Is there a security light lit on the instrument cluster ? Anti- theft system problem . Your best bet would be to have it towed to a qualified repair shop instead of guessing what's wrong a just replacing parts .

The only way oil can get into gas is if someone adds oil to the gas! Drain gas tank. Put Clean gas in and try it then. Oil in gas usually fouls the plug so if it doesn't run by now, check the firing in the plug.

Echo gt 2000 wont start

Mix the fuel/oil ratio an ounce of two cycle oil to a quart of gasoline or 4oz of two cycle oil per gallon of gasoline. I don't think that the fuel mix is the problem though. Check the screen at the exhaust port and clean out any carbon build-up found there. I would clean or replace the in-tank fuel filter as well. Anyway, hope this helped and best wishes.

Oil pressure

It sounds like the oil pump is getting weak and you need a tune up from the information you gave. But before you pull up the engine to get that oil pan off, check the oil pressure switch. The oil pressure switch will send a false signal to the ecm when it starts to go bad and it will in turn throw other sensors off. It can also cause too much gas to go through the fuel system and find its way back into the oil pan. Hope this helps.
