Hi,
A friend is moving and wants to give me their 2002 Saturn SC 2dsd automobile.
Mileage is 120k
He said he was told by a mechanic that only 3 of 4 cyl are functioning but that he has never experienced any issues. He gets 25 mpg local driving.
My question: What would it cost to repair and is it worth the price or should I just leave well enough alone or should I say thanks, but no thanks?

Thank you
Sincerely
Richard Kiernan

So is it a sc1 or sc2 you listed both?Also depends on why its running on 3 cylinders on how much it will cost to fix. Could be a bad spark plug coil spark plug wire injector or low compression on that cylinder. Those are the most common reasons for a cylinder not firing on those cars.

If your getting it for free I would say you have nothing to lose and should take it.
