You need to drop your gas tank, first un clamp filler hose fro underneath, and vent hose. Undo the two gas tank straps and wiggle tank down around the exhaust system. Once on the ground you will see a small ring around the hoses going into the sending unit, being very careful to not get dirt in the tank. Sending unit should pop out . The fuel pump is bolted onto the sending unit. You un plug the 2 wires going to it and the bolts holding it on, and replace the opposite way good luck

have you looked at the CPS that is sitting just behind the starter ?

1999 Saturn SL | Answered on Nov 17, 2014

I would suspect the starter solenoid or the starter. I may be telling you something you already know, so if I am, bear with me. When you turn the ignition key to start the car, you apply 12 volt to the starter solenoid (which is physically located on the starter). The solenoid is actually a relay that applies 12 volts( at very high current) to the starter. Since you are not hearing any clicking when you turn the key, I suspect the solenoid. BTW, when you get a starter it usually comes with a solenoid already atteched.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh

So to install new brakes you always need to compress your caliper back to its original position. There are two ways of doing this one requires you to bleed your system and the other does not.
1. you can loosen your bleeder screw on your caliper to release the pressure to compress your caliper piston if you choose this method you will definitely need to bleed the system because loosening the bleeder screws allows air to enter your brake lines.
2. The other method is remove your brake reservoir cap. If you choose this method you will not need to bleed your brakes (this is assuming you had no air in your brake system prior to starting your brake job) this method allows you to push your brake fluid back up through your reservoir. I would suggest though put a towel around the filler neck of your reservoir because the excess fluid will come out the top as you compress the piston in the calipers. Good luck I hope this helps

assuming the lug nuts are removed and you have applied rust penetrating oil ? you might have to apply some heat with a acetylene torch then knock it with big hammer,,,

1999 Saturn SL | Answered on Sep 26, 2014

You don't have to, but if they have never been bleed before and you have over 90k miles on it, it wouldn't hurt! Look at its condition, if it's Clear and nothing is floating in the fluid and the brake is high and firm when depressed, it would be best to leave it alone.

But, if the brake pedal is spongy and pumps up after depressing it a few times, then bleeding the system will remove any trapped air bubbles and it will also remove any contaminants or moisture that may have collected over time.

If you have access to a Pressure Bleeder, you would have less problems as long as you don't over pressurize the system.

Also, make sure you use Dot 3 Brake Fluid if you do bleed them.
And if you have never bleed the system and don't have a pressure bleeder, do your best not to don't push the brake pedal to the floor during the bleed process. If you do, it could cause damage the Master Cylinder's internal seals causing them to leak which will cause your brake pedal to sink while holding pressure like at a stop light, causing brake presure failure and the need to either rebuild the Master Cylinder or replace it with a new or rebuilt one!
Don't rush through the prosses and doing this on a less humid day is always best as Brake fluid tends to draw moisture from the air, causing your new brake fluid to become contaminated prematurely.

One other thing, soak the Bleeder Valves on the Calipers and or Wheel Cylinders with "PB Blaster", its a rust busting penetrant, much Better and Faster then WD40 and will aid in loosening rusted bleeder valves without breaking them.
Hope this helps.
Happy Saturn Motoring!

Your brakes work off of vacuum when car is running the brake booster is under vacuum from the intake manifold

1999 Saturn SL | Answered on Aug 30, 2014

cause the car has what is called power brakes, which means that it is assisted by the vacuum created while the engine is running. The brake booster is where this assistance come from and the is the big round thing your master cylinder is hooked to. if you don't know what a master cylinder is that the thing you put your brake fluid in. but I have seen those boosters go bad and cause a problem similar to your except I had brakes when not running but bearly enough to stop the car from rolling.

hope this helps

well there are 2 coolant sensors,,,one is the coolant level sensor which is internal to the coolant resivor,,but i think you are talking about the infamous engine coolant temp sensor,,,,ok pop your hood you will see the cam cover that says saturn on it,,,,thats the top of the engine,,,ok,,,then on the lower right side of that you will see the upper radiator hose,,,and the EGR valve,,,,now inbetween the egr valve and upper rad hose is where the coolant temp sensor is,, its just below them,,there is a little wiring harness with a yellow and a black wire going to it,,,,it actually screws into the lower side of the cylinder head,,,,just squeze the wiring connector at the 2 thicker spots and pull it straight off then take the coolant cap off the resivor,,to relases pressure and put it back on,providing the car is not hot,,,,the sensor is actually a 13mm or 14mm socket that removes the sensor,,,,,they usually crack and leak into the harness so check the harness for corrosion,,,,be like green/blue on terminals,,if so youre gonna have to wire in a new connector,,,,no big deal ,, normal s-series issue,,,do not use aftermarket junk like autozone as these do not read correctly from the start youre gonna have to shell out the money at the saturn dealer for the good stuff ,,like $18 for the sensoe and $37 for the connector but it comes with the 2 **** connectors you need to wire it in,,,so if you remove the sensor just put the new one in snug but dont break it off,,,,top off coolant,,,,cut the 2 wires off the old connector as close to the end as possilbe. so you retain as much wire as you can,,,,,it doesnt matter which wire goes on what side but i lke to keep it the way it was the black wire on the right and the yellow on the left,,use the **** connectors,then heat shrink them and wrap them with electrical tape and youre done
