It sounds to me like your injectors are leaking Drymmy. When you press the gas pedal all the way to the floor you shut down the injectors giving the motor a chance to clear itself out of excess fuel and then the vehicle starts. In the am the car needs a little more fuel for a cold start but when its warm it needs a lot less fuel. Check with Saturn ... Read More
i have a 2000 sl2 dohc saturn for about a month now. 150,000 miles. automatic. here is the problem. when we first bought the car it ran great. 2 weeks later, it started smoking out of the tail pipe really bad. took it to garage, said my catalyic converter was bad due to oil leakage. well figured out it was leaking oil down into where you put the spark plugs. well ...

Keep me posted on what you find.
Sounds like you have a bad coolant temp sensor really common on those cars.Also inspect the connector going to it if the terminals are blue or green you need to replace the connector because its corroded.
could be bad gas put in a little high test about one half tank and injector cleaner my car will not start unless i tap gas in hot weather most of time--also turk key on-wait till hear click then start
I have a 2000 saturn that starts when I try it first thing in the morning, but after that I have to put the gas pedal to the floor to start it and it sounds rough until it stays running I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs and spark plug wires, but it still is not working good. There are no codes showing up either. Any suggestions???
I have got to ignition switch wire harness I can take off harness but how do I get switch out do I take whole assy or just back part of switch I have a no start electrical situation key is working lights come on but no start:::
We've been having a problem with our Saturn for the past 6 months or so that is battery related. Last year December my wife left the lights on in the car and the battery died. We replaced it with a new one and it worked fine for a while. Then in the past few months once every few weeks when we go to start the car we find the battery's dead! ... Read More
I have exactly the fault on our Saturn 2000 SL1 my manual gave me some good tips to help find the problem. There are four basic parts the 30 Amp fuse under the bonnet, the key, the switch behind the key on the columb, the soleniod and starter. Run a wire (15 amp capacity) from the "S" terminal on the soleniod up to the battery terminals (do not connect). Run the ... Read More
Did you ever figure out the problem if not let me know and i will help you out with it.
Hello - my car is having these exact same problems with the tranny...OBD code P0741 on a 2000 Saturn SL2, 106K miles.
I . a 2000 saturn s series. On the throttle body there are 2 vacuum lines, 1 big, one small made of plastic, the small one broke in 2 places. Once where it runs across the top of the throttle body, and second at round junction connection where plastic connect changes to rubber connect on other side to secondary vacuum pump? its a long plastic vac line that goes from top ...

I may have a solution to your issue, is the car still having the same problems ?
When cold engine will not idle, it automaticle reves up by itself to 2000 RPM's. At the same time temperture gauge flucuates wildly. After warmed up engine runs well but still reves by itself.
Lately when I start my car (SL2 – 2000) in the morning the Security light is flashing, Service Light is lit and the Service Engine Soon light is lit and the car turns over but won’t start. sounds like its out of gas. I have the passive security system only. So I turn the ignition switch to run over an over until the security light stops flashing then goes out. This ... Read More
Revving up to 2000 to 3000 RPM is way high. The Saturn's idle air control (IAC) may be suspicious, but I have my doubts. IAC opens during cold idle and opens a bit also during air conditioner operation to speed up the idle in varying amounts to stablize cold idle and handle A/C load. I have never seen it manage to get above 2,000 RPM even when my '02 SL1 operates ... Read More
Your Check Engine Soon light is your emissions light. It has been on for a while likely due to detected misfire. Saturn engine should be completely smooth idle when in neutral/park. It should not gitter. When it does, those are moments that you operated on 3 cylinders. You should hear a slight pop at tailpipe, which is the afterfire detonation that got muffled. The code should be the P0301 as that ... Read More
You have the same problem. I'd bet on it. Your other details are symptoms of the same. Good news is the job is not hard. If you are closeby, say in MA? You could slow down fluid loss by keeping the coolant reserve bottle loose for now. There is really no real need to pressurized the coolant system if you do not pull trailer and your coolant temperature never goes above ... Read More
oh, I'm at 133,000 miles. I couldn't get the codes read at Autozone because I couldn't get there early enough. will try tomorrow.
booboo6 - maybe you can help me too! ? My symptoms are eerily similar to your post above (#66): " 1. Tiny trace of coolant smell coming from exhaust or very gradual loss of coolant? 2. Extra tough starting on the colder mornings. 3. Look at the engine at hot idle. Do you see a slight jitter as if one cylinder has a slight miss. Listen for corresponding pop on exhaust ... Read More
Does anyone have or know where I may obtain a free step by step guide on how to replace my EVAP Purge Selonoid on my 2000 Saturn SL2
I have a 2000 SL1 that I bought in 2002 it had around 20000mi and now it has 109000. For the first 5 years all I had to replace was the reverse light switch (twice) about $40 for both and I had to replace the muffler clamp $15. This past year the car cost me the most. Most of it was normal wear n tear items (ty rod ends, ball joints ... Read More
What you have going on is that your security system is not being turned off before you get into your vehicle. To turn it off use your keyless entry fob to unlock the vehicle. Why the lights turn on according to the owners manual is that to prvent someone from driving off with your vehicle while the security system is active it cuts off fuel to you injectors so the engine ...

My 2000 Saturn SW s-series has had TWO sets of front bearings replaced in the past year, and I think I'm starting to hear the high whine of the latest bearings already. Both repairs were done at a local repair shop that had the bearings pushed into the housing with the proper tools. Second set was totally replaced for no charge at all. I'm wondering if anyone else has had the ... Read More
I have not noticed any of the items you listed for the intake gasket. Coolant has never been low and cannot notice any smell with the exhaust. Good thing is since my last writing to you the car has started fine. The last things i did were to clean the ECT plug well and put some dialectric grease on it. Cleaned and tightened the battery terminals. Cleaned the throttle body (did ... Read More
OK! You are thorough. I am retired and drive inter-state a lot and keep my '02 SL1 in perfect shape always. I attacked a few problems over the years on my car alone. What you are describing, with help of elimination process, sounds awfully like the start of the intake manifold gasket leak. The ills of a fully developed problem may not show up for half year or more depending on ... Read More
No error codes. No battery leaks. Fuel pump can be heard. I went ahead and checked the pressure. It stayed constant at 48 pounds. I had already switched the relays before seeing your reply. The battery cables did not move when twisted. The ground cable was not loose but it was not as tight as it should have been. It took no effort at all to loosen the connection. The positive ...

I tend to not think it is the relay. If my memory serves me correctly, when ignition is put in "on" position before cranking, the buzzing of the operating fuel pump may be heard if you have someone at the back of the car. Opening up the fuel cap may help hear it better. If no cranking takes place in 5 seconds or so, the fuel pump stops and restarts when ... Read More
Problem is after sitting for quite a while. Like at school all day or overnight. Once started all is fine, runs great and no issues. I did find some posts in the Saturn Forum that said i should try swapping the Fuel Pump Relay and the HVAC Blower Relay. There were actually a couple posts about that. Will try that tonight and see what happens. If you have any further suggestions ... Read More
Is the problem at warm start after sitting a while or a cold start after sitting overnight? Once the car is started with help of pedal, the car is perfect after that, i.e. idles perfect and no drivability issues at all, etc?
My daughters Saturn has all of a sudden become hard to start after is sits for a while. It turns over fine but will not start unless you press the gas pedal part way. It will then start, spit a little black smoke and be fine. Plugs, wires and ECT sensor have been replaced. Did not replace ECT connector wire though. Any ideas what I should check next? Can anyone tell ... Read More
Does anyone know where I could obtain a free, no-cost step by step reapair manual or guide on replacing the EVAP purge selonoid on my 2000 Saturn SL2?
I have a 2000 Saturn SL2. According to the ODBII test code of P0444D, I need to replace the EVAP purge solenoid. Is there anywhere or anyone that I could get a step by step repair guide with pictures of how to do this? Autozone does not provide one for this. HELP PLEASE!
Thank you for the quick response. Is the heat sensor easy to replace? Would I be able to do this, and approximately how much would it cost.
the heat sensor is bad or shorted
Nursing student here, looking for some help on my 2000 Saturn SL2. While driving, it shifts ERRATICALLY. Then when I accelerate or going uphill, it gets worse, like it's not sure what it wants to do. Sometimes the red low coolant light will come on, but then goes off and stays off. I've kept it filled with coolant. It does not overheat. The SES light is is also on; And, ONLY ... Read More
I know what you mean about the torque settings, I have a torque wrench, but I have to find it first, it does say in the Chiltons to start from the center and work your way outwards, so you're correct in that step, the torque settings are a bit confusing, up til 99 on DOHC and SOHC it says 22 ft-lbs 2000 and above it's 114 "inch" lbs for the DOHC ...

Has anyone had experience with this? I bought my '97 SL1 in Sep 1999 with 24K miles. By Nov 1999 I was already having problems with it starting hard, or starting and running then dying suddenly.

In April 2000, I received a letter from Saturn Corp re their "Special Policy relating to 1997 model year ... Read More

I have an '01 SL1 with only 50K miles, and I get two codes, like many other people have. They are that the idle is high, and cyl-1 is misfiring. The car idles high (~2000 RPM) when started, and sometimes when put back into park. Lots of people say that the idle control valve (looks like little motor on right (driver's side) of engine intake manifold) is dirty or needs to ... Read More
I have a 2000 Saturn SL. Starts fine, idles at around 3000 RPM fro the first minute then goes down to 1000 RPM's. While driving it runs like a top for a short period of time, then all of a sudden it acts like its running out of gas, if I give it gas then it dies. If I just let it idle it will run for a little bit but ... Read More
A reporter from a large daily newspaper is looking to speak to current or previous Saturn owners that went to the homecoming events in Springhill, TN sometime around 1994 and 2000. Please provide your daytime contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, October 20, 2006.
I bought a 2000 Saturn SL2 about 3 weeks ago. So far I have replaced the motors and switches for 2 of the 4 windows. And, the driver's window still does not work properly. Now, I am being told that the new switch has probably shorted out. The repair man told me that the motor for this window is still good but, the switch has gone out again. Is that possible? ...

My trans just went out on my '94 SL2. 165,000 miles and this is the first major mechanical breakdown. Is this a great car or what? Maybe I'm just lucky. A transmisson shop had to take a guess at $1700-$2000 for an overhaul because they said they never see any Saturns, "They just don't break." They estimated $500-$650 for a used trany. If they "just don't break" then I'm thinking of ... Read More
Hi I have a saturn sc1 2000 model. It has done about 59K miles. Lately it has been giving me trouble starting. The engine starts fine, however as soon as I put it in gear the engine dies. I have to rev real hard, put it in gear and immediately set off. However after driving for sometime it continues to idle(when i stop at lights) without dying. But if i switch ... Read More
Although not exactly the same, I had a 5-speed 2000 SW2 for a while. The SC, SL and SW shared the same 124 hp DOHC engine during the 2000 year, and I assume for 1998. The gas mileage was good (listed 28-37 mpg, measured 40 on about 10 occasions with all highway driving, averaged about 34 with mixed driving). For the 2000 model year, at least 15 % of the vehicles ... Read More
I had purchased a brand new 2000 SW2. The following items had to be fixed in about 3.5 years. 1. transmission quill bearing. 2. intake manifold coolant leak. 3. clutch failed at 42 k. 4. battery went dead (AC Delco battery) at 3 years and leaked acid ruining cables. 5. electrical short that kept the lights on. The first two years of ownership went well and then the car needed all ... Read More
just bought 2000 sl2, auto and keyless entry. 49k on it. i like it. i bought used off a saturn dealer. not certified. when i brake i feel vibrations through the steering wheel and column and underneath me. anyone know what that might be? any advice for me on keeping my car running well, my main concern is the transmission. i'm really paranoid about that for some reason. thanks.
The rebates may vary by retailer, but most retailers nationwide are offering a $ 2000.00 Saturn rebate, plus a $ 1000.00 GM loyalty rebate on the ION... IF you can find a retailer that has way too many IONs you can also get another $500.00-1000.00 off for a market adjustment making a total of $ 4000.00 off a new ION.
If you leased through Chase you may be able to negotiate. Chase has taken to purchasing residual insurance so they may not be willing to move much. If you leased through GMAC you can forget it. They won't negotiate with you. Yes they are taking a beating but they still won't negotiate with you. Try talking to your wall. Thats how much luck you will have. If you do like the ... Read More
It has been quite a while since I visited this site. Alot of new names. I have a 99 sl2 bought new in april 2000. I now have almost 83,000 miles on it.

Hi, lets see.. years to avoid on the S Series... the more rounded looking S Series sedan and wagon came out in 1996, with the redesigned coupe a year later. I have heard that 1998 is the best year S Series, and 1999 and 2000 weren't too bad either. The most important thing is to make sure the vehicle has been well maintained, with maintenance records. Also, it is always a ... Read More
At 20,000 miles the engine noise increased substantially and the dealer replaced the muffler under the warranty. They stated that they are starting to see a few SL2's with a slight crack in the muffler. Now I have almost 40,000 miles and the engine is again louder than before. I suspect a new muffler is again needed. Since I exceeded my 36,000 mile warranty I guess I must foot the bill. ... Read More
Saturn has just released a tiny number (1,000 cars?) of SL Special Edition sedans, which are the base model 5-speed SL with air conditioning in a very pretty metallic blue. I stumbled onto one of these by accident at my local Saturn store, they state this is the only one they will receive from Spring Hill. The clincher with the SL Special Edition is Saturn is selling these for a price ... Read More
I bought a used SL1 in 98. It was pretty high miles (50k) for a 2year old car but my regular mechanic checked it out and pronounced it in excellent shape. It had new Firestone FT70's. I just traded it in on 2/9. My wife drove the car to work and back every day in Seattle traffic, plus it got 80% of our weekend use. That includes a 2000 mile round ... Read More
Until the 1998 model year when Saturn redesigned their altenator you could pretty much count on neededing a new one every 60K miles. This is no longer a problem. As for leaking oil - that has never been a problem. Before the 1999 model year "some" Saturns would burn oil. For the vast majority of Saturn owners this oil burning was so slight it didn't affect anything. 1 quart every 3,000 ... Read More
Glad to hear that your Saturn's have proven reliable as my two Saturn's have. (1998 SL)_ (2001 SL1). My aunt bought a 2000 LS1 (thanks to me) and it has been ok except for some minor issues. I can't wait for the VUE and the new Saturn ION.
I'm currently driving a 2000 Passat GLS and it's definately a hoot to drive. The interior materials have definately spoiled me now and the hard reassuring "thunk" of the door gives one a feeling of safety. However, I find myself looking for a small car now for two reasons.... to lower my monthly payment and to rid myself of VW's HORRIBLE dealer service departments... while my car has be quite reliable, ...

In May, I bought a 2000 SL1 from my local Saturn dealer. It's now September, and so far things have been great. The car gets about 25-30 miles per gallon in regular driving (auto/AC); it's reasonably peppy and very stable at high speeds. (So smooth in fact, I've caught myself going 80 miles an hour plus!) Only a few minor problems, including a broken sun visor fitting (which was fixed under ... Read More
So,I bought myself a Saturn (and so far, no buyers remorse)! I owned a 1993 Ford Escort that has done well for me for the past five years, with nearly 100 thousand miles on the clock. I was going to keep it a while longer, but the automatic seat belt system broke on the drivers side, leaving me without a shoulder belt. I was given an estimate of 500 dollars to ... Read More
I just drove them back to back around the block, so I have no idea about highway speed noise levels. You are right that Ford has a winner on its hands, hard to argue with the level of the Focus sales. The SL-2 / SC2 does have some key advantages however. Saturn has better acceleration - crash test results (and LOTS of real world crash test results), and extremely low cost ... Read More
afkx:As critical as I've been about my "beloved" SC2 it has been totally reliable, I'll say that. As to buying the thing the lessor has made me a "deal I can hardly refuse" by cutting almost $2000 off the residual !! So much for the highly touted resale of Saturns. I would not actually be buying the car for myself as it was originally leased for business use. We will palm ... Read More
We purchased our 1993 Saturn SL1 used with 63,000 miles from a dealer. We also purchased a 2 year warranty that included the drive train. After driving 2000 miles we checked the oil and found it to be low. This observation was repeatedly found every 800 to 1000 miles. We brought it back and the response was that it was still running and couldn't honor the warranty until the engine failed ... Read More
Howdy--- I'm about to purchase a '98 SL2 from the dealer, 63,000 miles. It seems lower on power than the 2000 I rented to check the model out, and has one minor rattle in the dash, but that's about all I can see in terms of flaws. Is there an easy way to see if the car has mechanical problems? Saturn owners seem to either think their car is God's gift ... Read More
As you so gracefully quoted, "If GM fans are really wanting to buy a GM small car.....they at least owe it to themselves to get past some of the Saturn hype and at least test drive the Prizm and Saturn side by side and then make a decision on what's the better car."

Press RELEASE, Regarding new technology coming from Saturn/GM Dec. 11, 2000 Saturn's variable transmission will start trend for GM Lindsay Chappell Automotive News General Motors has bigger hopes for the European-built continuously variable transmission that will debut next year on the new Saturn Vue sport-utility. GM plans to launch CVT production for other vehicles beginning in 2002. While the automaker is not saying how many models will get its new CVT ... Read More
Floridan you are not too far from being accurate. In the beginning Saturn was truly a different kind of car company, and a different kind of car. The company got off to a better start than GM ever imagined it would. The cars did extremely well for a small car safety wise, and their unique labor agreement as well as other invovative features such as polymore panels and other things created ... Read More
The shifter is a bit notchy at first. In about 2000-3000 miles it get broken in and actually has a very nice feel to it. For the smoothest shifter I have ever driven though try out the L series stick. Its pulled from the Saab 9-5. Wow thats nice.
According to an article from the detroit news, Saturn has the highest owner loyalty rate in the industry, 1 in 3 Saturn buyers return to buy another one. A new SUV offers great hope for the company and sales are up 21 % this year. See the article at http://www.detnews.com/2000/autos/0010/06/b01-130505.htm
Both the SL2 and LS base offer good points. The SL2 is nimble, quick for it's curb weight, low maintenance costs and costs around 13,500 for a base model with 5 speed. However if you start adding a few options such as automatic, abs, cd player, side curtain airbags, your around 15,600. which is LS price range. As an open Saturn loyalist, I think the LS base model is much better ... Read More

This was copied from the expert review on the 2000 SL's from Saturnboys bible JD Powers & Associates. I have maintained all along that although this car is different then GM products, it's still a GM product.

I recently leased a 2000 SL1 and have no complaints about the quality of the car. I have discovered, unfortunately to late, that the electronic fuel pump emits Radio Frequency noise that interferes with my Citizen's Band and Amateur radios. This is a common problem for new cars with the electronic fuel pump in the gas tank and the common place for antenna installation in on the trunk. Ford is aware ... Read More
Could you clarify noisy engine? You mean at idle? Or while driving? I wouldn't be too concerned about engine noise, its not indicitive of any particular problem. Where are you buying this Saturn?

Here is my theory on the 2001 and 2002 SL model Saturns. The Saturn Company produces the 2001 SL in August/September. There are no changes except two color additions and two deletions and a modification to the engine for emissions. The car is basically the same as 2000. Then in March or April Saturn announces the 2002 model and gets a jump on the competition with a brand new and very ... Read More

As for Ford, if you liked your tracer so much why not give the Focus a whirl. On the other ... Read More
I have a suggestion for you. Why don't you open the hood and use the little yellow stick, called an oil dip stick. This would have prevented you from running out of oil. I think its great that Saturn split the difference with you on the replacement cost. Just make sure you check the oil at least once a week and you shouldn't have any problems. My 2000 Saturn as well ... Read More
This is response to all you whiners out there, get a life! I have had the great privilege to own 2 Saturns in my life, I owned a 94 SC2 and was delighted when my wife decided she wanted a 2000 SL2.

The smaller Saturn engine (I believe a 1.9L) is a bit quieter than the DOHC optional engine. You give up a little horsepower, but you will get a smoother ride and better gas mileage. If you really want the extra ponies the DOHC upgrade isn't much extra (I think about a grand). regfootball: I agree with you on a couple of those, but the Saturn isn't a inferior as you are ...

I have to admit that I agree with Dhanley because not everyone thinks Saturn's are crude or terribly out of date. Consider them the VW beetle from years ago, good value to own, looks new for years, price increases very little from year to year. In fact, for the 2000 model year they have over 1000 new parts and a price reduction on some models. It is a shame that they ... Read More
Just read in the paper that Saturn has cut production at Spring Hill, Tenn plant by ONE THIRD !! Wow, this early on in the 2000 year and they are cutting production.They have cut production of the "L" cars at the Delaware plant as well. Here in Florida the dealers are awash in unsold cars. What's wrong with this picture? A lot of things, but mostly "daddy GM's" not letting Saturn ... Read More
Yes, I don't know of any source yet giving cost-of-ownership for an LS2. I was thinking of the S series with my unaware buyers lament. I will continue it in another area. You claim your intrigue will "blow the doors off" on an LS2.

Is anyone else experiencing wind noise with their Saturn SL 2000? The following is a copy of the letter my wife sent to Saturn... We purchased a Saturn SL on 8-16-99 in Houston. On 8-26-99, I brought the car in for service. There was a wind noise from the door/window on the driver's side at any speed above 55mph. It sounded as if the window was opened a small crack. The ...

Incase you have failed to notice, when I discuss reasons to buy a Saturn( which you oviously don't believe in because of their world famous "no haggle , no hassle") one price policy, I present my reasoning with COLD HARD FACTS.

Dindak, there is no time like the present to buy your SL. Have you driven one yet?? The Saturn SL has consistantly had the lowest maintenance costs in its class, rated by www.intellichoice.com and they earned the highest rating possible for frontal crash tests for both driver and passenger by www.nhtsa.com Plus the service cannot be beat. Good luck.
I'm looking to replace our second car (a 89 Honda Accord) with a 2000 Saturn SL. I was thinking of a bigger car but given gas prices and the fact it's a second car, I think the SL will do just fine. I was quite impressed with the entire Saturn line I saw at the show.
Very glad to hear it " qd4ever" But how come your profile says you now own a 2000 jeep? Wanted to see how the other half lives ? :) Good luck with your Saturn.
I have seen this car but cannot remember it's name. The styling is bland and it blends in with so many of the Japanese/American cars that it's hard to tell one from another. The chasis is European (Opel I think). About the size of the Chevrolet Malibu and to me looks toooooo much like it. Does have V6 power if you don't mind paying right up against 20k for it. I'm ...
