Car sometimes has trouble starting


Asked by Sep 13, 2016 at 11:36 AM about the 2005 Saturn L300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I have a 2005 Saturn l300 that sometimes does
not start. I do not believe that this is a problem
with the starter because when I turn the key i can
hear the starter working but the engine sometimes
does not fire. Eventually the car does turn on but it
can take up to three times starting it for the engine
to turn on. I have a couple of check engine codes 2
I have replaced myself but the code stays on the
computer. The first was the camshaft sensor
which I replaced. The second was the crankshafts
position sensor which I replaced. And the third
which I haven't replaced is the mass air flow. Now
once the car is started the car runs great so that's
why I'm hesitant to spend the $150 buying the
mass air flow sensor. Also prior I noticed the code
throttle position sensor but once I cleared the
codes and went for a drive with the car it has not
come back on for several days. Any help is greatly
appreciated thank you!
