Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 140000 miles
I have a 1994 Saturn SL2 that on Sunday night I drove up the driveway and parked at the top because the weather was getting cold & bad. The next morning the engine would crank, but not start. I have 41 psi fuel pressure that holds even while cranking, so it's not the fuel pump. I can see one of the cams turning so it's not the timing chain. I plugged a noid light into two of the injector connectors, and while cranking I get a blip on it, which leads me to think that I am probably getting fuel. I tried to fire it on starting fluid, and it would not except for the occasional hiccup. I pulled the plugs and cranked with the plug in the wire and grounded and had a good spark. I see fluid on top of the pistons that is the unburned starting fluid. I have asked around a bit and told to suspect the ignition module and/or the crank position sensor. But it the crank sensor were bad, I would think that I would not get any spark. Same with the ignition module. Thoughts? I'm puzzled.
have the same problem?
