    I have a 96 sl1, when the car is running at norm rpms, it stalls. When I
    rev it up, it runs okay. But after it runs for a little bit, the engine
    stalls again. If I let it sit for a bit, the car will start up again and
    run okay for a little bit and stall again. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like fuel delivery problem. Possibly the fuel pump. You need to
    check fuel line pressure at the injector rail when it has stalled or won't
    start. Could also be a sensor, but then I'd expect the Check/Service
    Engine Light to be illuminated and have some diagnostic code(s) set.

    Why not read the stored trouble codes before speculating or guessing? If
    the car is a 1995 or older, you can do it yourself with the instructions
    Refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code Information, and Diagnostic Trouble Code
    Chart for 1st Gen Saturns.

    Or, you can stop by any Autozone and they will read them for you for no

    Even if you spring for the diagnostic fee at the dealer, you will come out
    ahead if it saves you from replacing a "could be" part that it wasn't.
