Question about 1999 Saturn SL
I bought the car a few months ago and it was very sluggish. when giving it gas from a complete stop it would chock on its self. i would have to feather the gas untill it would break free and take off . felt like it was not getting gas to all of a sudden the line cleard and off it would go and i could shift into 2nd gear.and so on I would have to keep a high RPM inorder to up shift or it would choke again. the air conditioner would **** the motor of much of it's power. you can feel the motor bogg way down . I replaced plugs and wires and it seemes to of cured the chockng effect. still feel AC pulling power but not nearly as bad. down side of this is: after replacing plugs and wires the car started over heating causing it to spew coolant out of flow tank. Even though the guage never reaches the middle mark.
