SATURN SL2 BATTERY PROBLEM

2002 Saturn SL2 • 122,000 miles

First off the car wouldnt start, we thought it was the battery. Bought a new one, didnt change. Moved to the starter, didnt even get it in and found out that the pmc fuse was burnt. Replaced and car started right up. Shut it off, no problems starting. Now it sputters when accelerating and at 40-50mph. When your at a stop and go to take off it will hesitate and almost stall. Sometimes it will stall, tried to disconnect negative on battery to reset the car computer. Cannot figure out what the problem is, any suggestions?

Have you check the plugs and wires?Also any codes?What about the coolant temp sensor? They fail often and cause all kinds of symptoms. Also see if the inside of the coolant temp sensor connector is corroded see if the terminals are blue or green instead of silver?If so you will need to replace the connector.
