Having problems with your 2001 Saturn L-Series ?
Intermittently when I try to start the car, it won't start. If I wait 15 minutes and try again it will start. If I spray starter fluid in the carburetor it will run till the spray runs out. The car is a 2001 Saturn L series with a 2.2 litre engine
Sounds like your engine is not getting any fuel. check your fuel filter to see if it needs to be changed. Fuel lines are under pressure. Be careful because on some vehicles you need to turn the fuel pumb breaker off and crank the engine over for about 10 seconds to depressurize your fuel line before removing the fuel filter. (check motor manuel to see where your breaker is located. One of my cars has the breaker in the trunk of the car, while my other vehicle has it in the passenger side panel). A more serious problem is that it could be your fuel pump. The fuel pump is usually located in the gas tank. Regardless, of where the problem is you will need to replace you fuel filter anyway.
Check the fuel pump relay
