I have a 98 Saturn SL. I have problems starting it. I have to constantly give it gas to get it to finally start, but it can take up to 5 minutes soemtimes. (Almost like when you have a bad battery or starter). I have been told I have a leak in the injector? I dont know if I need to change the fuel injector or something else, though. When it finally starts, alot of smoke exits from the muffler. Also, when I am sitting for more than a few minutes, idling, the car loses water/antifreze and smoke really bad from the water holding tank area. Almost like it over heats, but my temp guage never moves from (C). Come to think of it, even when driving, it stays on cold. Recent repairs: new spark plugs, thermostat, battery, and water pump. Also, have had the starter and alternatorv tested. So, anyways, thats the basic problems, any ideas or suggestions on what to replace, and how?
have the same problem?
