Those had an issue with the coolant temp sensor reading incorrectly, thus causing the ECM to think it's colder than it really is. This will richen the mixture just like pulling a choke closed.

Saturn in '96 wasn't fuel injected? Along those lines starter brushes or did that go away in the 70's. Not sure if he got it hot before restarting.

it was a diagnostic test to find the nerves that carry the pain signal. They hit them with lidocaine to temporarily numb it. Since it didn't do jack it was a fail. They did a lumbar medial branch block on L3 down to S1.

All this discussion about a nearly 30 year old car and taking it to a mechanic. SMH. Should take it to the dealer for NCD!

All GM cars and trucks were injected after 1987 with a couple exceptions. He seemed to think it was cranking ok. I don't know if that car has an external fuel pressure regulator but that could cause a long crank time/start and stall thing.

CHOMP would get a bunch that end in ?ATCH. Or WHIMP. Just suggestions.

I misread the OP and LAJ 's comment.

I paid NFL.com a dollar to watch the Superbowl. Today they offered me the whole season free. As a member of the international community. I haven't watched regular season football in many years, but this year could be different. They say the AFC is loaded with top notch qbs.

I wish GCN+ would do that.

Hey donít exaggerate! Itís only 24 years old. Barely middle aged by Saturn standards.

The joke was insensitive, but did not justify hitting or cursing like he did. There was a much more appropriate way to handle the situation.

I doubt there will be any charges. It looked like a pretty weak slap.

I saw a movie recently(don't remember the name of it) where the car did just that. On the second try though, it blew up. Denzel Washington and Julia Roberts

This is why I would be really leery of those cars where the engine shuts off when you are sitting at a light, then starts up again when you're ready to go. When I grew up, if a car's engine stopped at a light, we called it 'stalling' and it was A BAD THING!!!!

I still occasionally look over at a car at the light to see who stalled. Maybe by the end of this year I'll finally stop that. :)

I had a similar experience, and even attempted a pass, which is not my norm. I think the drugs given may have had something to do with it. Well, that's my story anyways...

I drove it to the mechanic and will ask him to look at it tomorrow, and it may have simply been some water in the fuel line, but any of the car guys have ideas??

It has never had this problem before.

fuel pump? Has it ever had one replaced?

Replaced about 8 years ago.

It is. The playoffs (post Wild Card Weekend) were better than the Super Bowl. Watch KC-Buffalo.

The night before I often think of the word I am going to start with the next day. I settled on a word but then changed my mind this morning. Had I gone with what I had originally chosen I would have likely gotten a 3. A friend and I usually text back and forth our starting words ideas. She went with what I had originally chosen and got 3.

I have 3 starting words that I rotate based on how many letters I get off of the bar the day before. Since yesterday was 4/5- I wasnít going to use that word again today
