My Saturn will die out for no apparent reason while I'm driving. It will not immediately start back up. If I wait about 10 minutes it will start. It seems when it gets up to normal operating temperature is when I have this problem. Any sugestions?
Do you

Sounds like ur crank shaft sensor pretty common for that yr and model. Only way to tell for sure is have a scan tool handy that displays engine data and look at rpms when ur car does start watch rpms on scan tool if it reads 0 rpms while cranking bad crank sensor. Its hard to diagnose when it just dies random.U could try replacing it there not that expensive but thats up to u. Let me know how it goes
