2000 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 40,000 miles
Similar to a recent question where the car " won't start", my mechanic is suggesting to replace the computer. They went on to say that Saturn has admitted that they have computer problems in their cars. Have you heard the same?
Our situation is as follows. In the morning, the engine will turn but not start. After a short while it will flood. The mechanics said that the computer senses a very low temperature and therefore enriches the fuel. They replaced the ambient temperature sensor, but no help. I don't know if this helps, but previous to replacing the sensor the idle would sometimes drop below 500 and occasionally stall. A couple of times I was able to get it started and then it ran fine - until the next morning.
Any suggestions are greatfully appreciated.
