Many possibilities. Fuel flow problem (fuel pump, clogged line, fuel injectors) Contaminated fuel. No spark or weak spark (bad plug, wires, electronic ignition module) No air flow (Clogged intake, clogged filter) Bad timing belt/chain (I can't remember which one a '93 has).

There are several reasons that will cause an engine to crank over but not start. The most common cause is a lack of fuel.

It's either fuel, spark or compression. First you have to narrow it down, then figure out where to go from there.

You'll need to lift the car and reach over the starter,the crank sensor is mounted on the block. you won't be able to see it but you will feel the connector.

Have you checked for fuel and spark? Camshaft sensor and or crank sensor will cause that problem as well!

If the Saturn Sl2 will turn over but not start, check for ignition fire first. If there is no fire then look at the crank shaft sensor and coil pack as possible problem areas.

If you changed the battery on a Saturn S-Series 201 and the car will crank over, but won't start, the security system needs reset. Do this by inserting the key and turning it halfway. Leave it this way for 10 minutes before trying to start the car.

this can be cause by the crank position sensor if the fuel pump is running well then the only thing that cold cause the problem is crank position sensor

The most common problems that could cause this are corroded battery terminals, the battery being weak, or an alternator going bad. Luckily none of these are generally too expensive to fix.

Crank it over, should self prime.Crank it over, should self prime.

No. If it did crank over it wouldn't be seized.

When you say 'crank over' are you saying the engine won't do anything? First check your battery and then your starter or starter solenoid. You can turn the crank to check if the block is seized or not.

Saturn. Venus has none, Saturn has over 60 moons.

Yes if the outside drive belts are over tightened after doing the timing belt it will pull up on the crank causing extra stress on the front bearing.

Your going to have to prime the fuel rail a few times. Put the key in RUN then turn it off. Put the key again in RUN and turn it off. Id do this maybe 2-3 times so the the fuel pump can reach the right pressures at the fuel rail. Then crank it over.

problably your crank positioning sensor, on the front of motor, behind crank pulley. about a $40.00 dollar part. good luck
