Please verify whether there's spark or not. Testing can be done by you or anyone reading suggestions given. Spark indicates the PCM is operating and a fuel problem may be the only issue besides possible loss of compression. If spark doesn't exist along with a lack of fuel found on spark plugs, this suggests a faulty crank position sensor. If you give confusing information, this delays diagnosing and misleads everyone. You are in the only position to provide accurate info as no one here is standing next to you or the car to observe symptoms and provide feedback.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Excuse me guys for butting in, but I see folks suggesting removing wires from the coil to check for spark.

The 4 pot Saturn, like the V6 has coil packs or ignition cassetes as some like to call them. There are no wires as such. It's a plug & play unit. Could it not be the simple case the unit needs replacing?

I'm sorry to learn that this problem has not been corrected. If you have spark and fuel pressure, generally, the engine should start. As fdryer has mentioned, there could be a bad crankshaft position sensor. I would like to add that the Inition Control Module (ICM) was subject to a recall in late '01 or '02. Was this part ever replaced on your car? If you don't know you, go to

http://www.gm.com/owner-assistance/saturn.html>Recalls>enter VIN>search

to find outstanding or completed recall items related to your car.

I really think that something has been overlooked. Starting a car's engine isn't all that hard. The basic ingredients: proper fuel delivery, spark, and compression. We've never had an answer regarding a compression test with this car's engine so as to verify whether or not a timing problem, or other related compression issue may exist. BTW, what tests or processes has the repair shop undertaken to attempt to diagnose and correct this no start problem?

Lady saturn, I understand your seeing the likelihood of needing to replace this car. I would never be in disagreement with a person who wishes to replace their car. However, I don't believe this has been handled correctly and, as a result, it may be leading you to an unwarranted conclusion.
