My 2008 Saturn Outlook will occasionally lose power and shut off while coming to a stop. In addition, it will not restart every once in awhile as well.

Asked by May 06, 2014 at 12:04 PM about the 2008 Saturn Outlook XR

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While slowing for a turn or stop the engine will turn off.  We have had the computer checked for codes each time and none have ever registered.  In addition, occasionally when starting the car, we will put the key in and turn it and the instrument panel lights and the bells and chimes go off but the engine will not turn over at all.  The starter does not even click.  If I put the car in Nuetral and move it a little bit, the car starts perfectly fine as if there was never a problem.  Any help would be great.

I am having this exact problem right now with my 2008 outlook. I had the battery replaced last week thinking that would solve it but now it won't start. Drove it half hour before no trouble. The lights, radio and everything go on but the engine will not turn over at all. The starter does not click. If this problem was figured out I would love to hear. Going to try to get it into Chevy tonight.

I'm having the exact same issue. Replaced the battery, but it didn't help. Had the starter looked at, and that's not the issue either. It's a shake GM vehicles have gone to shit. This is a vehicle I purchased with 58,000 miles on it. At 60,000 miles, the infamous transmission problem happened. When I purchased it, it was a one-owner vehicle. Never been wrecked. Guy traded it in for a Lexus, since his kids went to college and he didn't need anything nearly as big any longer. I received a recall for the lift gate, took it in, and now it works less often than it did before. I'll never purchase another GM vehicle. That's for sure.
