Ask Your Own Saturn Question

Do you know the actual fault code that is set when the light comes on?

It's happening now. Car went after waiting 10 minutes but problem happened again. It can happen at any time but it's worse in cold weather. Running heater seems to make it worse

Can you get the computer system scanned and get me the fault code, most auto parts store will do this for you at no charge.

I will wait a bit and see if I can get it an AutoZone. How do I get back to you with the code

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The codes are P0135, P2176, P0300, and P0326

Is the engine actually misfiring?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It runs a little rough normally but when it decides to have its episodes it won't accelerate, almost stops.

The common cause for the misfire code P0300 is usually due to a failing ICM (ignition control module) and that should be addressed first. The Code P0135 is a lean code usually set due to either a vacuum leak or a failing bank one HO2S sensor, the code P0326 set in most cases due to a failing knock sensor. The code P2176 can set due to either sludge build up in the throttle body or a failing Throttle body. Before you consider replacing the TB you would be wise to remove the negative battery cable and then take some carb cleaner and give the throttle body and throttle plate a good cleaning. A failing ICM and a dirty throttle body could cause all of these codes to set.
