  1. I have a 95 Saturn SL1, and it died a week ago. When I turn the ignition
    key it doesn't start, but yet all the belts are turning in the
    also makes a high pitched sound like a dentist drill. The spark plugs
    still spark and the fuel is going through cuz I can smell it after
    attempting to start car. Please help...ASAP!! Thank you..any/all replies
    greatly appreciated!!

    This is just a guess, but the timing chain could be broken. The
    catalytic converter could be blocked, preventing exhaust from escaping.
