20 Most Recent 1992 Saturn SL2 Questions & Answers

I had this same problem and put a switch inside the car to turn on the relay remotely. But I believe it is the connection at the temperature sensor near the top of the transmission. My wires were stretched at this sensor from the factory. I have not tried to replace it rework it but if you used an ohm meter you could determine if the wires and or sensor have continuity. This is not the same sensor that runs the temperature gauge in the dash.

Part probably about $150. Labor about the same, $300. I'd try several competent repair shops for better estimates.

A Few dallars at your local parts store. You might need some fittings which they should have as well.

Usually you can get an universal muffler, around $20 or so. You can install it with a muffler clamp to hold it on to the existing exhaust pipe instead of welding it.

Then you need a wiring diagram of the entire vehicle,
before you can do anything

Before you can trace wiring, you have to study how the
circuits work & come up with your test points

well first clean the area and find out what is exactly leaking. like make sure its not a valve cover gasket or ahead gasket. you can remove it and make sure it hasent got electrollisis and eaten away at the threads if it is the sensor itself i usually go to a pick and pull yard and grab one or two when u put it back on i recomend a tiny bit of teflon it will probably end up missing but it will also help keep it sealed that should cover just about every situation

good luck,
let me know how it goes

My uncle was a Saturn tech for 15 years he always told me you don't really need it all it does is cycles some of the exhaust back through the engine to burn off a little excess fuel. My 92 sl2 had over 500 k miles and didn't have it from day 1

It may be the antitheft system.

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down the fuel to your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

The Check Engine light will light when the ECU stores a trouble code.
Counting the Flashes
To retrieve trouble codes, turn the ignition key to the "on" position with the engine OFF.
The Check engine light will flash many short blinks. The total number of blinks equals the code number. For example, flash,pause, flash,flash = code 12.If more than one code is stored, the Check engine light will flash the codes in sequence (lowest to highest) with a pause between each code. The codes will repeat until the key is turned to the OFF position.

11 Transaxle codes present 12 Diagnostic check only 13 Oxygen sensor circuit 14 Coolant sensor/high temperature 15 Coolant sensor/low temperature 17 PCM fault - pull-up resistor 19 6X signal fault (92-95 models) 21 Throttle position sensor-voltage high 22 Throttle position sensor-voltage low 23 IAT circuit low 24 VSS circuit-no signal 25 IAT circuit-Temp out of high range 26 Quad driver output fault 32 EGR system fault 33 MAP sensor - voltage out of range high 34 MAP sensor - voltage out of range low 35 IAC - rpm out of range 41 Ignition control circuit-open or shorted 42 Bypass circuit - shorted or open 41/42 IC control circuit grounded/bypass open 43 Knock sensor circuit shorted or open 44 O2 sensor indicates lean condition 45 O2 sensor indicates rich condition 46 Power steeringpressure circit(91 models)open or shorted 49 High idle indicates vacuum leak 51 PCM memory error 53 System voltage error 55 A/D error 58 trans fluid temperature too high 59 Trans fluid temperature too low 66/67 A/C pressure sensor 81 ABS message fault 82 PCM internal communication fault
