My saturn started acting up the other day, I thought it was just the cold but now its doing it still in the warm. I go to start and it kind of strains then starts up. The engine doesn't make the starting over and over sound when I turn the key and the initial normal sound then quiet then it starts after a few seconds (if that makes any sense). If it sits for awhile, for example overnight, it takes even longer to actually start. I haven't had to turn the key twice to start it but it takes longer and seems like its straining. Could this just be the battery? Once its started its fine, no odd noises or anything. I'm going to call them in the morning and make an appointment but I'm just wondering what you all think? I had a dead battery in my old car in college, and its kinda like what this is feeling like, but in my old car I new it was close to dead because I got in one morning and the clock and all the radio stations reset themselves. Hopefully this won't be expensive.
