Fuel Pumps
Saturn (car)
Saturn S-Series

Why if you replaced the fuel pump in your 92 SL Saturn does it idle but when you give it gas it sputters and dies?

I found out the answer. When my husband replaced the fuel pump in the gas tank he cracked the plastic casing that the fuel pump goes into, we sent it to the shop and it work's fine now! Saturn fuel pump's are expensive it was like $250 just for the part. Thanks, MEL

sounds like you have a fuel pump issue. You forgot to mention the year of your car. it will depend if you have a mecanical or electric fuel pump.

If car is fuel injected check the injectors could be clogged. If car has carborator check to see if the butterfly is opening properly. Check all the wiring for battery and electrical system, too.

This might be an air or fuel problem at the most basic diagnostic level without looking at it or asking more questions.

Gas is not getting into the carburetor because no Saturn made ever had one.

Intake manifold air leak or you need to put some fuel injector cleaner in. Did you gap your plugs correctly?

Try the fuel pump, it may need to be replaced.

Give us more info like the year, make, model and engine info. Do you have a check engine light illuminated? If so what are the codes? Have you tested for fuel pressure and fuel flow? Have you replaced the fuel filter?

If your Ford Aerostar sputters at high speeds, you might have a problem with the fuel injection system or with the fuel filter. You could also have water in the fuel lines, bad gas, or even a spark plug fouling issue.

It Could Be A Bad Cataylic Converter. This sounds like a weak fuel pump which is the #1 problem with these cars. Have yours checked.

One can change the fuel pump in a 1998 Saturn SL2 by taking it to a local Saturn dealership for the original fuel pump part from the Saturn manufacturer.

Saturn uses an electric fuel pump that is mounted INSIDE the fuel tank.
