2000 Saturn Sc2 started bucking...
2000 Saturn Sc2 started bucking at idle like it wants to stall and has significant loss of power. Engine feels like it is running on 3 cylinders and seems to sound louder. I was doing about 70 mph on interstate when i noticed slight shaking upon deceleration. When I stopped at the first light is when the car started bucking like it wanted to stall. When i did take off from the light I noticed a dramatic power loss which moderated a bit when I kept the revs up

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No I do not. Sorry. Last time something similar happened like this my mechanic diagnosed a vacuum leak.

ok. it could be many things. a clogged catalytic converter. low fuel pressure. a misfire caused by a coil or a fuel injector or a plug. a vacuum leak. leaky injectors. etc.....
