02 Saturn Vue won't start.

Asked by Dec 03, 2015 at 11:39 AM about the 2002 Saturn VUE V6 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a 02 Saturn Vue and parked it one time and
when I went to start it wouldn't start, I've had
problems with it in the past not starting every time
I would put gas in it, so I figured the fuel pump
must have finnaly went out on me, I replaced it,
and it still won't start, battery is good, everything
sounds ok, I can hear it trying to turn over but it
just won't start, I'm hoping someone might have
an idea of what it is, it's not reading any codes.

the starter might be bad take it off and get it bench tested and that will tell you


Mine did this as well; would not start after fueling up; as if the engine was flooded. I had an '03 for about 10 years. What worked for me was to have the accelerator floored when I turn the ignition switch to start the engine. Started right up; worked more than once. And no more topping off at the pump! Kept it from being an issue... Good luck!


Maybe you have an injector that is not fully closing or something.
