I got a 94' Saturn SL2 with 110,000 miles on it. The car was great until multiple problems occured. The car now overheats, gas mileaged went way down, hard to start, Spark plugs get fouled, black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. However once on the road driving it runs great. Saturn can't find the problem, so I have done some work myself. I have replaced the valve cover gasket hoping that would stop the spark plugs from fouling with oil. Also I just replaced the EGR valve hoping that would get rid of the overheating problem. I'm I missing something because the car is still hard to start. In order to start the car when I turn the key I have floor the gas peddle at the same time. Once the car starts the RPM gauge goes way up then down to 1,000 RPM, and the engine fan comes on. Please help me, I'm sure that will run great once this slight problem is over.
