Engine Performance problem
1999 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 86000 miles
for the past month my car has a hard time starting when its cold and sometimes when its warm. I will turn the key to the "run" postion and hold it there for about 5 seconds before I attemp to start the engine. For some reason the temperature needle will bounce up almost half way even when the engine is cold, then when I try to start it takes about 10 to 20 seconds before it starts going but even when it does get going it struggles to stay running and then it shuts off and I have to restart it and let it warm up for a minute or two and it runs just fine after that. There has been a few time whenever the needle doesnt move it starts up just fine. Its very strange to me. Im thinking theres something messed up with the electrical or the computer, so if someone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
