Question about 2001 Saturn SL

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Saturn SL1. It has problems starting, you have to have the gas pedal to the floor and crank it a couple times, and it will start but smokes and gas milage is terrible. Check engine light came on and the code came back as crankshaft position sensor/misfire on cylindar 1. replaced sensor and nothing changed. have also replaced ignition modules, spark plugs and spark plug wires. Any one have any ideas?

Hello: The number one injector could be stuck open. to check you will have to remove fuel rail with injectors attached, energize fuel pump with key off and see if #1 injector drips/sprays fuel. YOU COULD ALSO SWAP #1 AND #2 injector and see if the misfire goes to #2 cylinder.

I have a 1995 saturn sl1. when i push the clutch in it idles up to about 3k rpms. then it tries to dies. if it does die, i have too hold the gas pedal to the floor to start it again. any suggestions?


You know I had that problem on a 94SW, and replaced the Mass Air Flow doodad and the crank position sensor and that fixed it. Cannot tell you which item was the right one, neither are very expensive. My car however also had a gas odor to it indicating incomplete combustion.

99 saturn will carnk but won't start


try cranking engine while holding gas pedal to the floor, this turns off the fuel injectors to clear excess fuel from cyls. eng my just be flooded. may need to crank for a long time. if engine starts do not let off gas until you are sure eng will run on its own.

92 SL1 won't start, turns over but not getting gas, or floods


Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too

Car shakes when trying to start and doesn't turn over


  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine
