From previous threads, I know there are quite a few knowledgeable CPF car mechanics so I'll post here what I posted in a Saturn car forum.
When leaving work tonight, my Saturn 2002 SL1 automatic cranked over longer then it should before starting then immediately stalled. Started it up again and left work. Drove into supermarket parking lot about three or four miles away and when I slowed down because the car in front of me stopped it stalled again. Started it up again and drove the rest of the way home about 15 miles, without incident including a bit of stop and go traffic at a couple of lights.
Any guesses what might have caused this? Do you think I might have gotten lucky and it was some stuck dirt in the fuel line or do you think it maybe signs of a fuel pump starting to go, or something else. When I got home, I had about a third of a tank of gas left but filled the remainder up with premium. Do failing fuel pumps tend to die at once or experience intermittentcy.
