i have a saturn sl1…until recently it ran great, but now it hesitates like it doesnt want to accelerate…to the point it wont go over 45 mph..also the rpms shoot up to 4 before it wants to accelerate at all…it wont accelerate at all on any type of incline either…it also revs sounding like a bad muffler job lol…when i first start the car and go it is fine until i come to a stop or the engine warms up..if u could give me any insight it would be great …thanks

Starter turns over just fine. Car revs like it going to start but won’t fire up. Come back in a little bit, car does the same. I turn to start, starter kicks right it, car revs but won’t turn over. Come back, turn the key, car start right up. Car sits all night, try and start, starts right up. Two days later, starter turn, can won’t turn over. It’s been up and down like this for some time. Changed, fuel pump, filter, IAC valve, clean or replaced several other sensor, car does the exact same thing as above. Turn key, starter engauges and spin to start the car, car won’t start. Come back later, car starts right up. The one strange thing noticed is the car seem to start when the outside tempartur is pretty warm.

1998 Saturn sc2. got stuck in snow tried rocking car to get it out didn’t work had to be pushed out. after that check engine light on and when i get to about 40 mph wont go in to overdrive. ran diagnostics came back with code PO734 gear 4 incorrect ratio. what does that mean? do i need a new tranny or are there other things i can do first to try and fix without having to replace tranny?
