20 Most Recent 2005 Saturn SC1 Questions & Answers


A high rev problem is due to either carbon build up in the iac passage's not letting the iac close to normal idle or the iac is just bad and stuck in that position.

iac= idle air control solenoid

Inside the throttle body intake is a butterfly and just above that is a small opening that the iac uses to move air past the butterfly and this sometimes gets plugged with carbon build up so spray some carb cleaner down through the passage,and sometimes you have to remove the 4 bolts and take the throttle body off to clean them out.

Saturns are known for carbon problems,and they are hard on egr systems,I recommend using sea foam a couple times a year to help fight the carbon build up,just follow the direction and use it in the fuel and vaccum lines as directed but do it on a warm engine and let sit for a couple hours so the sea foam has time to loosen the carbon

The dealer can print out a diagram for you. I have never been charged in the past for that service.

The P0341 code is a code indicating that the cam position sensor circuit is out of range or not performing properly. The P0404 code indicates the EGR is out of range or not performing properly.

Those codes seem rather odd to have together. If the cam sensor was bad I would expect some driveability issues or possibly even issues with getting the vehicle started. The EGR could cause some idle issues.

I just cant get past that those codes seem so unrelated, they are for two different systems. If you are not experiencing any driveablity issues, I would clear the codes with either a scan tool or just disconnect the battery for a few minutes. If they come back then yes, I would have it looked at. You could try replacing the Cam position sensor, and see if that helps, but the EGR is a bit more challenging and would be a more costly item to replace.

Hope this helps out.

If you had mentioned an economical car, did you mean the cost of the car or the cost of running?
Also are you looking for a diesel or a petrol, type off use you have( the mileage per year), are you a speedster, do you need a sedan, hatchback or sports model,etc.the capacity of the engine, seating capacity.
Now a good assessment can be done based on these inputs and I shall try to help.
So please respond back.
Please check this link on a comparative study.

Your radio and most of your accessories will still work with a low charged battery. The clicking sound you are experiencing is most likely from a low charged battery not giving enough amperage to the starter. Were you able to start the car after getting a boost? If so, then it is your battery. Does your car cut out while driving? If so, then it is your alternator (device that charges your battery while the car is running). It is either the battery or alternator.

Depends on how heavy a trailer. I wouldn't advise trying.

Few vehicle manufacturers produce their own auto trannies but tend to buy them in from specialists, ZF, AP, Borg Warner, etc.

Vehicle manufacturers tend not to publish much information about the auto trannies they use but find out the origins of yours and apply to the manufacturer and you should discover lots of information.

Look up the Platform letter of the car, any other Saturn that uses the same Platform will likely bolt in. Here is an example of a platform letter, a 1990 Mustang is "F" body platform. A 1989 Olds Cutlass is a "G" and so on. Sorry I don't know Saturn's, but if you google it I'm sure you can locate the info.
