1996 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
I'm having this problem with my car. When I went to start it up, it would just crank and not fire at all, when I floored the gas pedal it started right up. I had a squeaky belt, so I replaced the serpentine, but now if I stop at a red light for too long, when I take off it starts squealing again. My car is really noisy also and I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to help that. Over the winter I had a few problems with my car overheating.I would be driving but once I sat idle for too long, the coolant would overflow thus making it smoke, is this my ECTS or something more than that? My car has a rough idle and when I start it up, if it isn't warmed up for a minute it runs but then sounds like its gonna stall, my RPM goes down to the 800 mark. I replaced the O2 sensor from all the exhaust it was putting out. Could it be a MAP sensor maybe? I also have a problem that in order for the heat to kick full blast with lights as bright as they will go, the RPM has to go WAY up and then when I stop they all dim. Any help would be appreciated, thanks ahead of time!
have the same problem?
