Question about 1999 Saturn SL

1 Answer

Stalling problems We have a 1999 saturn sl2, we had a quarter of a tank of gas, seen some cheaper price and gas and decided to get a little bit more, less then a block away from the gas station the car stalled, had to have it towed home. since then it runs for 15 minutes and then stalls, we have replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter but something is making the fuel pump relay get hot. and when it gets hot it stalls until it cools then it runs for another 15 minutes over and over. We replaced the relay but the new one does the same. What can we do to fix this

You have a high resistance problem in the electrical circuit ,Possibly I/P fuse box where the relay lives . Do you know how to use a voltmeter to do electrical testing ?

SOURCE: idling problem

Did the "service engine" light come on in the dash near the speedometer?
There is a small electric motor located on the throttle plate called an "IAC" motor (idle air control). Its purpose is to maintain the corrrect idle speed when required such as your stop light situation. Occationally the motors "pintal" that controls the idle speed will get stuck in the bore seat and can't control the air flow of idle any more.
It may be dirty and need cleaning or the motor could be bad and gone to the great junk yard in the sky. The electrical connection and wiring should be visually inspected for corrosion or damage near the motor assembly but should not be an issue.
Let meknow what you see.
Thanks,

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter on a 2004 saturn vue

It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.

I have A 99 jeep grand cheroke when I have less that a quarter of tank of fuell and I make a right turnd it lost fuel and it shut off


Well there could be a problem withthe fuel pickup in the tank but personally I would just keep the tank full above a quarter. And that's speaking as a professional who could certainly take my own fuel tanks or pump/pickup assemblies out of my own cars if I had to. Removing fuel system components is a hazardous and even dangerous activity. If you were on a long cloverleaf and cornering a bit hard, it's not unusual to starve the engine for fuel with that little fuel in the tank.

Is a 1999 sl2 engine *(block only) compatiable with any other year engine block?


If your thinking of interchanging the head or short block then you can, depending on the cylinders, because the saturn sl2 2000 and 1999 were one of the few models ever to make a 1.9 liter DOHC. if you have a 1.8 DOHC then you should be fine with a 2001 or 2002

My 1999 Saturn SL2 suddenly started idling very roughly at a light. I put some more gas in it; it was low -- to see whether there might have been moisture in the line/ tank. After that the Service Engine...


Sounds like fuel injectors need cleaned I had this issue but found a really awesome product that my service guys recommended. I believe it's Chevron Techron - in a black bottle - lot cheaper than having injectors cleaned... I used a bottle everytime I changed oil

My 1999 Saturn SL2 started theother day but a few


This is probably a faulty fuel pressure regulator. You can rent a tool at most auto part stores that connects to the fuel rail to show you the pressure level. If it is low (less than @40 PSI) or if it fluctuates very much, replace the regulator. It is also a good idea to replace the fuel filter, as it can clog and prevent adequate fuel supply from reaching the engine. You may want to replace the filter first, as it is usually cheaper.

Truck doesnt start


dip your tank with a wire. if quarter tank indeed fuelpump or safety valve not opening in supply under hood. Check connection. Valve is on all modern cars for fire hazard. Check the valve by takening it out and testing it. Could be wire harnes problem also. Or filter blocked.
