Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi. Your concern is not very serious and probably would not leave you stranded somewhere. But pinging is usually caused by a faulty or dirty Mass Air Flow sensor. It is located in the air intake after the air filter. The sensor is what reads how much air is coming into the engine. The sensor can be cleaned with a MAF cleaner that can be bought at a part store. Respond to let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
