Of course it could be somethng else, but I have seen starters do this. I had a vehicle that the starter was apparently about to go out. When it was warm it would kinda seize up and not start. Another reason is if the battery is not strong enough it will cause a click sound and not start. It will still have enough amps to run other electric, but not enough amp to start. As the vehicle cools just enough power is going back to the battery to start it. This is either a battery problem or the alternator is causing this by not fully charging. A good auto store can check the start and charging systeme for you for free. Usually you dont have to take anything off the car wither. Well, I hope this helps you. Good luck.


+1 on a bad battery or alternator. Get both checked at your local autoparts store.

look at your belt with the engine running (keep your fingers out) the pully on a little arm that bounces is your tensioner.

To start a Saturn after running out of gas, a little ether sprayed in the carburetor might help. Another way to start a vehicle after running out of gas is to pump the gas until it gets enough to start.

Engine vibration can be an indication of a misfire, but more often it's just the AC compressor causing a little shaking.

Operation Little Saturn happened on 1942-12-12.

put a little bit on gas in the carb and start it up

stop by local parts store they should have a little ob sensor that would reset it

On Saturn, none at all. Round Saturn, one big one and a lot of little ones, plus billions of little rocks that form the rings.

Add more, this can cause internal damage to the engine to the point where is destroyed. A little extra will cause rougher running, and extra smoke, but is better than not enough.

It is normal for a little vibration with the air conditioning on due to the compressor working , fans on , and engine running a little warmer. On at least 92-96 Toyota's the fans automatically come on when the ac is turned on

The heater has a little radiator in it and it may be enough to cool a engine that is running hot

there is a little CPU chip which is smaller than your hand, the CPU chip is a computer it revs the car to warm up the engine, if you live in a cold place that is most likely cause

Your statement is a little inconclusive. Will the transmission shift when the engine is turned off, but not shift when the engine is running? If it is jammed and refusing to move even with the engine off, the problem will be inside the gearbox and usually related to the selector forks and or rods. If the the problem is there only when the engine is running the problem will be related to the clutch assembly, which is failing to disengage the gearbox from the engine

the symbol of Saturn is like a little cross connected with a Ear or question mark not a H.

Saturn is a gas giant planet, with little or no rocky core.

A little, the ac pump will put a draw on the engine more than without the ac on.

Yes, although there are some differences. The 96 is OBDII so you will have to keep the ignition and throttle body from the 95. The 95 also has two temp sensors where the 96 only has one so you will have to do a little splicing there.

yes driving at a speed where the engine is running with a slower RPM then a speed where it is running at faster RPM will save a little fuel.

I think Saturn has pure darkness and a little lightness because it is far away from the sun

Is it a 4 cylinder? Sometimes a 4 cylinder engine will shake a little extra when the AC is running and it's at an idle. You might be able to step up the idle a little extra but 4 cylinder engines are notorious for shaking when the AC is running.

saturn has 7 rings and they unique because they are made up of tiny little ice cubes and then they are mixed with little pieses of rock and dust
