Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Saturn SL1 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70000 miles
Sometimes, especially in morning the car doesn't want to start unless I use starting fluid in the air box.
After that it will run fine. Can turn it off, go in store for 5-10 min, come out and will start.
Now if I come out later maybe 1-2 hours it's a 50/50 chance of starting without the fluid.
Also every once in a while it will stall while driving at slow speeds and try to stall at higher speeds. Higher speeds when it does this the engine will " buck" (for lack of a better word) but will keep running.
If it stalls at the slower speed it will be the same as a hard start. It wont without the fluid.
Spark plugs were never changed so I did but seems to be the same if not a little worse.
Also I don't know if it's me or not but it seems to also be worse when its high humidity.
Can anyone help me?
