Why won’t my car stay running?
I’ve got a 2001 Saturn SL. At first, I was only having a problem with rough idling and occasionally, it wouldn’t start. My dad has been trying to fix it but right now, it’s got all of us stumped. We replaced so many parts on it. It runs really great while it’s running but now that’s the problem, it wont stay running! Before, it wasn’t starting at all, it had too much fuel pressure, and was giving us P0172 and P0133 codes so we replaced the fuel filter and O2 sensor. Now, it will start for a couple seconds and then immediately die. It isn’t giving us any codes when we can get it to stay running. It’s also confusing because it isn’t being consistent. Sometimes it’ll stay running and sometimes it won’t. The check engine and service lights are both on and have been for a while so we figured it was because the fuel filter but they still stay on. Could it be an ignition problem or something with the fuel injectors?
