1995 SL1 Service Engine Soon Light

Discussion in 'Saturn S-series' started by Steve Christianson, Oct 11, 2004.

  1. X-No-Archive: yes

    This light went on in my Saturn earlier today, so I quickly rushed it to the
    dealer and am waiting to hear from them. Why: because about 2 weeks ago I
    had an ugly breakdown in my car which could have been avoided with some
    preventive maintenance, so now I'm paranoid since it was rather expensive to
    repair. Question: I've heard that sometimes the SES light goes on just for
    crap like dirty exhaust rather than anything really substantive. When the
    dealer calls me back, what should I consider to be "crap" and what should I
    take seriously? In other words, I'm looking to avoid any expensive dealer
    scams here. Christmas is coming up and my wallet is weakened already from
    the last problem. :)

    Please help.

    well steve my advice to you is, you should have check the engine code that
    the SES light was giving you. all you have to do is go to autozone and ask
    for a GM code key. that would have told you the exactly what your car is
    telling you whats wrong. that way you could have avoided the dealer
    telling you some code that was not a code at all. so next time when your
    SES light comes on get a GM code key and find out the truth for yourself.
