1996 Other Saturn Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 128, 00 miles
Last winter had no problem. This winter the car has become hard to start when cold or has been sitting for a "longish" period of time. In the morning it's about 50 degrees and I crank it for about 20-30 seconds and nothing. Turn the key again and nothing. Do it again and maybe it will try but no cigar. Crank it a couple more times and it starts to sputer. Do it again and then it races up to about 2k rpm and then drops down to about 800 rpm and then sputers out. Crank it again and it starts at about 800 to 1k rpm but I have to feather the thaotle for about a block or 2 before it starts running like the little red saturn I used to know. Could it be injectors, fuel filter, plugs? Bought the car used and I bet they never did any maintainence on it! Gimme your best guess. 1996 SL2 4 banger dohc 16 valves. Thanks so much. Ron
