Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Does the engine currently tart and run now?

Are there any codes in the computer?

Are you looking for some possible causes?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Won't start
Looking for what else could be the problem
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

There could be dozens of reasons. I would recommend that you narrow it down by checking for spark, fuel and compression.

Your welcome to check these things and reply back with your findings.

Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Not possible.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Could it be low fuel pressure or some sensor.how much pressure is required
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Thats what I am saying. If you checked these things, you would know what the fuel pressure is at.

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Don't have a gauge but when I push the valve fuel squirts bout 10 feet.so there is some pressure
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Excellent!

And what about spark?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Pulled plugs left hooked up turned key and all 4 plugs sparked
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Thats good.

Does the engine run on starting fluid?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it does
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

So do the injector pulse fuel into the cylinders when cranking?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Not sure but plugs were dry when I pulled them which was right after I had been turning engine over
Saturn Mechanic: Amedee, Saturn Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok, so you need to do a few things.

  • Check for codes in the computer
  • Check injector pulse using a noid light
  • Check for power going to the injectors with the key on.

Let me know
