I have not checked for fuel before, but I can check for spark. How do I check for fuel?
Saturn Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 month ago

turn switch from off to on , to hear fuel pump buzz, it supposed to prime fuel rail, try opening door when u turn switch so u hear it

click on link to view the fuel pump relay location to check , swap it with anther one like it or see if it clicks or if you have relay tester tool

When the key is on, there is a buzzing from the engine compartment. I wasn't sure what that was, If it is buzzing, does that mean that it is working?

I have never used starting fluid on a car, do you think that is worth it?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
going to check the relay now
Saturn Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 1 month ago

no, you need to see if it is closing the circuit and turning fuel pump on.

well you can spray starting fluid in tb body , open the plate up to spray inside 2 small squirts , then stay back and start all u doing is by passing injectors and see if u getting fuel

but if u never done it and you are inside garage , i suggest you pull it outside so we are not burning the house down

the buzzing is not good usually lack of voltage

Ok, I have checked for spark on many things in my life, but I can't find how to do this vehicle. How do I check for spark without a test light?

Chad, are you still online? I didn't get a response to my last question.

One mechanic says its the transmission, I think its something to do with the torque conversion part or it, not a specific gear. Aweful vibration but only in the right combination of engine speed and gear. When the car downshifts and coast to a stop, the noise/vibration vanishes. When I start accelerating it doesn't start until the car is appraoaching what I would guess is fourth gear. But the symtoms come and go throughout the upper gears. I was going to do a ATF and filter change to eliminate that part. The fluid is full and doesn't seem discolored. … read more
