Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 210000 miles
I am driving a 94 Saturn SL2 DOHC with way over 210,000 miles. The tachometer no longer works, so I do not know the exact mileage.
I am having major problems with the starter - which has now been replaced three times in the last two months. The first one was put in by my son early November (it was a rebuilt one) and it lasted until Dec. 24th. He took it back to Autozone who said that it was probably faulty and gave him another one. My son put it in and that one only last 2 days. Autozone gave us a full refund and we bought another rebuilt starter but from a different manufacturer. The guy at Autozone said that the transmission or fly wheel may be 'eating up' the starter and shorting them out.
I have never heard of that and seem improbable to me. The automatic transmission does slip or clunk when switching to the next gear. But how can the transmission short out a starter?
have the same problem?
