We have a 2002 Saturn Coupe that has started to stall once…

Customer Question
Hi! We have...

Hi! We have a 2002 Saturn Coupe that has started to stall once it reaches operating temp. It's at the shop now, but not giving definitive codes as to what's wrong. We're starting with fuel pump and spark plugs. Also read on another forum it might be as simple as the A/T relay. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

Starts fine, 152K.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Coupe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Ha! No, that would not end well. : )

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope, that's about what the mechanic at the shop here could find (he's still got the car).

The most common cause of a stalling condition on this vehicle would be the following..

  • Crankshaft position sensor
  • Lazy Idle air control motor
  • Throttle position sensor
  • Air/vacuum leak

Also, be sure to have them check the engine coolant temp sensor. While they don't usually cause a stalling, they tend to go bad on these vehicles a lot.
