'92 saturn possible fuel problems

I have a 92' saturn sl1. The car started oiut fine, but then died once, at a red light. After that, the RPm shot up to 3 when in park. The car started dying soon after. It seems to drive fine, but when the car heats up a little and runs for awhile, if you take your foot off the accelorator (to break) when you go to accelorate again, the car dies almost immediatley after accelerating. The car won't restart unless it has had time too cool off. What could this be?

I had a similar problem with my 93 Saturn.I tracked it down to a bad Brake Power Booster. The car will idle at 3500 rpms.When I would step on the brakes.
Remove the vacuum line from your power booster and seal off the hose. Start the car and your rpms should drop down to normal. Now step on your brakes and see if that stopped the acceleration.
If so I would change the power booster. Not the most fun I ever had but It had to be done.

I have a 99 saturn sl1 i started my car up yesterday for work let it run a couple of minutes do to the cool weather it ran fine but died on me about 10 minutes into my drive not it wants to start but


I would check fuel pressure first.
Could be low fuel pressure due to a faulty pump or dirty fuel filter.
Was the check engine light on when the engine was running ?

My 92 saturn sl burns through gas way too fast. I barely make it 30 miles without having to fill up again. What do i need to do to get better gas mileage?


Need some more info. How much gas are you putting in it? Does it smell like raw gas at anytime? Under the hood or under the car? Possible broken (rusted) fuel line. Any service engine lights on? Does the car seem to run well?

Car starts and runs. Once it's warmed up, the engine shuts off tried to start it again motor turns over but will not start. Wait a couple of hours then the motor will start again and then will shut off...


Wouldn't think sensor or computer problem , more likely an ignition module . When it dies pull a plug wire an check for spark ,i think you will find no spark . Just from my 30 years of diagnosing GM vehicle's this has been the #1 cause of a start an run till warm an dies an wait 20 min . to an hour an it starts again problem. But without testing to know for sure that would be a guess . Having a qualified an certified repair technician diagnose the problem is always the best idea.

SL1 won't start, just single click, electronics work


Try charging the battery or jumping the car, your alternator could be shot and not charging the battery.

92 SL1 Intermitant stalling problem


Fuel pump,Fuel pump, Fuel pump,,, high mile cars will always out live their fuel pump. The stalls will become more frequent. But first change fuel filter if it has one outside the fuel tank, if it has it in the tank just replace the pump at the same time. Also next time when it stalls bang the bottom of the tank with your hand and try starting.
