Re: 2007 Ion Cylinder 3 Misfire

Re: 2004 Saturn L300 will not fire

The easiest and perhaps the best way to test for the coolant sensor instead of disconnecting it and throwing off electronics relying on it is to connect a reader capable of displaying coolant...

Re: 2004 Saturn L300 will not fire

38-42 psi is correct and within range of expected pressures. Since electronic fuel injection relies on fuel pressure to deliver precise amounts of fuel per injection squirt, fuel under pressure isn't...

Re: 1998 Saturn SL2 won't start when parked on driveway incline
