Where is the EGR Valve on a 1999 Saturn SL2?
The EGR Valve is located on top of the intake manifold. If you are standing in front of the car it would be on your right hand side. It is cylinder in shape and has wire harness that connects to the back of the engine!
What would cause a 1999 Saturn sl2 to sputter when you accelerate slowly when you punch it it will rev up then kick in and wont sputter but will when you accelerate normally?
What does error code 32 for your 1992 Saturn SL2 mean the car doesn't start What does the EGR do and can it prevent the car from starting?
A code 32 indicates a EGR system fault. The EGR valve takes some of the exhaust gases from the combustion cycle and returns them into the intake air system. This cuts down on the NOx emissions. A faulty EGR valve shouldn't keep a car from starting. The repair for a code 32 is to replace the EGR valve.
Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the EGR valve is directly behind the valve cover (right side). It has a wiring harness connected to it with multiple wires. It sits straight down on the engine and is attached with two bolts. ( Note: the front of the valve cover is next to the upper engine mount)
What could cause a 2000 Saturn sl2-p0404 egr flow insufficent-replaced fuel filter spark plugs engine coolant sensor also tested voltage on other sensors with multimeter-car cranks but will not run?
Why would 95 Saturn sl2 stall 3-6 times a week when slowing down -also sputters before stalling ongoing pbm for 3 mos. no ses light. all dash lites stay on after stall. restarts in under a minute.?
Answer I own a 1995 Saturn sl2, I just had the same problem you were having and yes, I had to replace the EGR valve. Now it runs like new. change the Fuel Filter!!!!!!! MOst likely your EGR valve is sticking open. This would cause the sputter stall condition. Have it removed and opened manually with a screwdriver. If it sticks open that's your problem
My son's 1999 Salvaged/total Saturn SL1 was rebuilt using many engine and body parts from 1995-1999 Saturn SL1 and SL2 cars, I believe it will work fine. I do not recommend before 1995 or 2000 or later models. I do not recommend SL2 either. I am not the expert but most of my son's engine is not 1999 SL1. Good luck!
Why does your 92 Saturn idle at 3000rpm when you are in park and drop to normal after 30 seconds also the car is warm?
I just had that problem with my Saturn. Check your vacume hose for cracks and make sure it is connected. If you don't find any cracks in your vacuum hoses, check the EGR valve. I just bought a 95 SL2 and had problems with the idle also. I was able to take the valve off and soak it in carb cleaner overnight and that did the trick.
