    Mine is a 2006 Saturn ION. Mine has been going out repeatedly while I am driving. I had the fuse checked (and I looked too). The fuse was fine.



    I had another electrical problem before this with the emissions system. It seemed to resolve itself.



    I have also had a problem with the passlock system in cold weather.



    It seems that the ION (at least this model) has several issues with respect to electrical/sensor systems.



    Anyone know what the problem is with the power steering for certain? I dread taking the car in for someone to look at because I can afford to have someone charge me to look at it and fix things that don't need to be fixed trying to figure it out. I MIGHT be able to afford the repair to the actual problem depending on what it really is.



    Any good/reliable info is appreciated.

    I was driving tonight and then the car clicked and the power steering signal came on the dash and there is no power steering at all. I looked to check the fluid and couldn't even find that! When I turn it off and back on it works for about 50 feet then does it again. Do I have a major problem?

    I have a2005 Ion and I have the same problem, it seems to work fine until I hit a bump or go over speed bumps. The same thing happened with other GM products like Mailbu and were recalled, someone needs to recall the Saturns

    I have the same problem. This just happened to my car last night. Warranty just went out a few months ago. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? How can it be reported as a "recall"?

I have a 2006 Saturn ION as well and the PWR STR light came on and the power steering went out. When i turn off the car and turn back on it's fine for a while but goes out again in a day or so. I called Saturn and they said it is the power steering which is electric and to fix it i would have to replace the whole steering column! If it is not the fuses which i haven't checked yet then it will cost me $850.00 to replace. that's not counting whatever else they find and charge me for. I was looking under 2004 Saturn Ion and they have a lot of the same issues. I don't know where to look for the fuses at though I'm thinking under the steering wheel if anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks

Mom!

My 92 tempo gl smokes like crazy when i first start it and some times runs rouhg for the first mile then clears up and then drives fine???


The valve stem seals are probably shot, if it is blue smoke-oil burning. What happens is when you shut the car off, oil slips down past the bad seals and pools around the valve seat. Soon as car is started, that pooled oil goes into the cylinder. When you shut the engine off, oil under the valve cover will do the same thing again-it will pool around the valves because of the bad stem seals. A repair manual can tell you how to replace the seals without pulling the head off. An air compressor is necessary to keep pressure in the cylinder, so the valve won't fall down into the cylinder.

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9L, Automatic Transmission, 171,000 miles. Vehicle will stop running, just shut off, after about 10 minutes of driving. Then after 5 minutes of waiting it will start again...


the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.
