Question about 2004 Saturn ION
Only sometimes, when I come to a stop light, my car jerks and feels like it will die. My idle is at 1K but when it jerks it goes down to 500-700. The dash and radio lights inside also go very dim. (we have auto lights, so they are on during the day) Do I need a new battery? Maby up my idle to 1200? Maby something with my fuel filter?
I had that problem with another one of my vehicles. It ended up being the fuel pump. The problem was that I let the fuel level in my vehicle get to low, and that the fuel filter inside the pump had gotten debri from the bottom of the tank stuck in it and it was starving the vehicle for fuel. Eventually my vehicle wouldn't start. I had a tow truck driver tell me what the problem was. He banged the side of the fuel pump real hard and the vehicle started right up. I eventually had to replace the fuel pump.
Hope this helps.
