I'M SORRY, IT'S A 2001 SATURN L300--I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT CARS BUT WHEN YOU ASK ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE ENGINE, ARE YOU ASKING IF IT'S A V6? WELL ANYWAY IT'S A V6, THE KEY TURNS IT CRANKS AND THE RADIO COMES ON BUT IT WON'T ALWAYS START AND WHEN IT DOES, IT DIES SHORTLY AFTER, IT DOESN'T SPUTTER OR ANYTHING BEFORE IT DIES, IT JUST KILLS

My guess is the battery is original, you get an average of 5 years out of them. If so, replace it.

That was a yes on the engine size btw.

AAAAHHHHHH.I'm a moron. It does crank I read. This time.

Is this something your going to tackle or take it in?

There are a couple spots to start. The most important is to check the pcm and bcm for codes present with a code reader.

It might be, but I found 2 technical service bulletins.

One is reprogramming the pcm wiht new software and the other is a chafed wire in the rear floor area.
That's why I asked if you wer going to go after it.

Does your rear hatch light work? Does it work when it doesn't start?

And did you follow up the bullitin?

It may feel like your going broke, but my guess you are actually mile ahead financially with that car.
