Car almost not starting

Asked by Feb 29, 2016 at 12:30 PM about the 2000 Saturn L-Series 4 Dr LS1 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start my Saturn 2000 it acts like it wants to
give out. I've already had a tune up and an oil
change. It still does the same thing , I'm afraid that
while I'm driving it will go out.

Try some general maintenance things first. Check air filter and replace if necessary, clean or replace Idle Air Control valve or Mass Air Flow sensor depending on which one your vehicle has,clean throttle with throttle body cleaner and replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while, add seafoam fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.
