1996 Saturn SC acceleration and chk engine lite
I'm hoping someone can help with some ideas because I'm up the proverbial creek. Like a lot of people these days, economically I'm in a pinch. I've been cut back to 3 days a week and I've tried to find a second job but not so easy these days. Particularly when you are concerned about getting from point a to b. Here are the symptoms.
The check engine light is on and you have to really feather or play with the gas pedal to get it from a stopped position to forward. Unless you play with the gas pedal it just dies. The first request in the morning to go from stopped to moving in first gear is perfect, no feathering the gas pedal required. But at subsequent stops, first being a block later, it starts. If I don't keep feathering the pedal, slowly, to get the RPM's up it just sits there or dies. It's a five speed and I don't have this problem in any other gears just first. In all other aspects it runs, or at least appears to me, fine.
Any ideas or help is appreciated.
