Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.
From your description sounds like the crankshaft position sensor's signal is being lost when turning and or going uphill. The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is located on the front side of the engine behind the starter. Check the harness to the CKP for and chaffing. You can also spray the harness with salty water and see if the engine will stall. Also check for any codes set in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Let me know if there are any codes set.
I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions let me know. You can reply back to me through this thread at any time.

Let me know.
Did you have the vehicle checked for codes? Also if you have a code reader, plug it in and see if it looses communication when the vehicle stalls.
Let me knowThanks
If you'll let me know specifically what "P" codes were stored I can look farther into the issue and see what all I can find.
