'97 saturn sl2 engine problem, can anyone help??!!?
I have a '97 saturn sl2 twin cam engine, automatic, about 100K mi, on it
and when i went to start my car today, it started fine, but when i put it
into gear reverse or drive it would start to sputter and then stall. i
tried allowing it run in idle thinking it would allow it gain power or
clear engine, but no help. it runs fine, yet slightly shaky in park. when
i rev engine in park, it emits smoke, checked engine oil, plenty in it and
just had oil change a month ago. i have no idea what it may be and when i
take it into service i was hoping i would maybe have an idea what could be
wrong. also when it i put it into drive/reverse before stalling it shakes
horribly and i when i opened the hood i saw the engine appear to be rocking
somewhat. can any help me!!!!!
i would appreciate any input!!!

I had a problem like that with my saturn and it turned out that it was the
ignition wires in my car, they were in the wrong order. its the 4 rubber
wires that go in your engine. at the other end of the wires they go into 4
nubs. i don't know what they're called. anywayz, there's a firing order
that ur engine does, and it could be in the wrong order. try goin to
autozone and ask them for the firing order, that could help.
