1996 Saturn SL1 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 135000 miles
My daughter has noticed at times when she shifts from 2nd to 3rd that there seems to be somewhat of a putt-putt delay before the car seems to recover and then takes off. It sounded like it wasn't getting gas to me, so we have had the fuel filter changed last year and this last month put a can a seafoam in the gas tank. A couple days after the seafoam was put in the tank, it didn't seem to have this problem again, until today. There has never been any service codes identified when placed on a computer. Can you narrow this issue down for us. Is it a carburoter, transmission, clutch, engine, or some other issue? Also, the backup lights do not come on any longer, but the turn signals and brake lights work. Is there a switch by the transmission that would need to be adjusted?
have the same problem?
