Asked by Jan 22, 2015 at 04:20 PM about the Saturn L-Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2 Answers


does the engine turn over? If not, the battery could be dead. there can still be enough power for dash lights and etc., but the battery can still be dead. If it is, and you get it jumped, drive it a while and get the battery good and charged, then go to autozone or somewhere like them and have the battery load tested. also have them test the alternator. simple tests.


could be the timing chain slippage, partial recals for that...see avoid-22l-saturn-l-series-vehicles.html
