Best Answer

the flyweel has a crack in it it should get quiter when the engine warms up or when your going you will have to replace it Track down the source of the rattle it could be something as simple as a loose heat shield on your catalytic converter or serious like a cracked flywheel. have someone hold the brake while the car is in drive and listen under the car till you find where the noise is loudest.

What would cause a car to intermittently shutter when starting and run but then stall later when idling?

Fuel filter was replaced less than a year ago. Battery is original, factory. Car ('02 Saturn SL1) has about 125,000 miles on it. Problem is intermittent and usually occurs after car has been running and is turned off and back on. One final note: The car will turn over, run, all electrical works, no dimming of headlights. Car can be driven but will stall when idling later. Quick fix seems to be simply turning the car off then back on immediately.

Could i get my money back for my car i have owned 3 weeks and only driven 4 hours because it broke down and the company didnt fix it before giving it to me?

If fixing the car was in the contract of purchase, then they are obligated to fix it. If the car was sold as-is, then you have no legal recourse and must fix the car yourself. You own the car. You cannot return it for a refund, once you sign papers, it is your car. You could sign the papers and drive off the lot, the car could break into two peices and it would still be your car.
