    Must be a glitch in the system, I was never notified as it is supposed to.

    Based on your last post, clean the new plugs and dry them out. It may
    even help to heat them using an open flame (away from the fuel).
    Thereafter wipe clean the sooth/burnt marks. Make sure all the plugs
    are firing. Since it is a carb/central injector, once fuel comes out of
    the carb, rev the engine while choking/releasing the cover over the
    mouth of the carb. The idea is for the engine to **** into the manifold
    any debris that may have lodged inside the carb jets seemingly cleaning
    the insides of the carb.

Cranking HARD ?
No Cranking ?
Smell Gas ?
Cranks Fast ?
POSSIBLE - * Battery dead or weak (alternator may not be charging right or gone bad) . * No fire coil pack(s) / rotor button distributor cap Faulty . * Cranks fast ( getting fire but no gas )
FIXES - * JUMP START IF POSSIBLE and if car starts take off 1 battery cable if car dies the ALTERNATOR IS BAD . * Pull 1 plug wire off and check for a hot spark or any spark for that matter .
Could be multiple things with multiple fixs need more info for a more precise answer. Start with the basics POWER +/- , FUEL , AIR , FIRE

Slow start

You may have a fuel pump problem, next time it does this have a can of spray starting fluid around (about $5) and spray it into the air intake hose of the engine, if it fires right up you have a fuel pump problem or a wiring issue to the fuel pump.

1994 saturn sl 1.9l 5 speed wont sart now. ran a few times poorly

try checking your alternator, charge the batt and then try starting car if the car starts pull off your batt terminals and if car does stall out then 9 out of 10 the alternator is shot, if it doesn't then get a ac/dc tester then put it to the post on the alternator and if it is not putting out 13.8 or 14.o then you have to try to find a short, a bad wire, or a bad ground and if you cant find one then pull it out and bring it to a aoutozone or a advanced outo and have them bench test it.

Could be bad gas ( underground water seepage is more common in the winter ). You need to verify that your getting fuel to the rails and that the fuel is OK. Next, check your fuel regulator at the fuel rail. Sometimes when they go bad they will let too much fuel go past and the injectors will flood out. This happened to a Bronco I had. Check the fuel pressure at the rail. Sounds like fuel related, not spark.

Have you checked that you have power to the coil on cranking?You may also want to check wether you have a good strong spark at the spark plug.It could be an ignition module breaking down.If you have no power to the coil you may need to change the ignition relay.Its close to the battery.
