Saturn SL - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Unless the cable is broke, it is probably your VSS. You might notice some harsh shifting if it is your VSS though.

Assuming it is an automatic transmission, I would look into that first. Check the fluid level. Low fluid level will cause hesitation. If your fluid level is ok consider changing the transmission fluid and transmission filter. Saturn's have an external filter, so it's very easy to do.

The reverse lights work off a switch near the brake switch at the brake pedal area. If loose it will not work. If tight its probably shorted out

hello there

there are two types of coolant that were used in your car: your coolant bottle or cap may have a orange or green dot on it.

Orange dot = DEXCOOL
Green dot= Eythelene gycol (green stuff)

All the 97' and UP had dexcool. 96' was the transistion year, some one way some the other.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks

You could do it, but remember gasoline is flammable and volatile and can be hazardous to work with: REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION 1.9L Engines

That black plasict box with part number P/N: 136-2268 is a Audiovox car alarm brain. On one side it should have 4 individual connector slots. First one is a blue color for a 2 prong, second is a small white with 2 prongs, third is also white whith a 4 prong, and the last one is 2 prong is a off white color. The other side should have a long port for a 11 prong horizontal connector.

I hate to tell you this, but there is not Camshaft Position Sensor on any 1.9L Single or Dual OHC. I assume you had someone read a Diagnostic Trouble Code from your PCM. They probably told you that you needed a Camshaft Position Sensor, and then offered to sell you one. I would recommend changing your spark plugs and your plug cables with FACTORY REPLACEMENTS. This will usually make the DTC go away. Aftermarket plugs and wires rarely work well for this engine. If you are looking for a CRANKSHAFT position sensor, look between the engine and transmission on the back side of the transmission. It is also known as the "transmission input speed sensor". More often than not though, your engine will not fire up if the Crank position sensor is not working. Hope this helps.

If the symbol looks like this:
