1998 Saturn no start
by James Grady
1998 Saturn SW2
1998 Saturn no start intermittent when hot. I have a 1998 Saturn SW2 with 4 Speed Automatic Transmission and a 1.9L DOHC 16 Valve 4 Cylinder Engine. Air Conditioning, Anti Lock Brakes W/Traction Control.
I do not drive this car in the winter so it has been in storage for about 7 months.
For about the last year or so I have had a problem. When I have been driving for a while and stop to shop or whatever, when I try to start the car the starter does not turn. The dash board lights up with all the warning lights but the engine does not turn over.I have replaced the battery and it still happens occasionally, drive a while, stop and no start.
After a short while it seems to turn over and start but it can be a pain. I carry a small socket set to try to tighten the battery cables but that is not the solution.
