Check the vent solenoid.

I suspect the check engine light is on?

Even if it is not the vent solenoid is the usually suspect. To find it locate the charcoal canister. there will be a couple of larger tubes going to it. one will go back to the gas tank and the other will go to the vent solenoid. Disconnect the hose from the solenoid and try to blow through the solenoid. If you cannot than the vent solenoid is stuck shut. It should be open with the key off.

This is a pretty common problem with most gm vehicles.

If go from 89 grade gas *which I have used for ions* down to 87 grade for last 3-4 fill ups, can that screw up my fuel pump by chance??


No, because it is still 'gas'. The only difference is the octane rating, the volatile ingredient that goes 'bang'.

Like drinking 100' proof vodka and then going down to 70' vodka. It's still vodka right? :>)

I have a 2004 saturn ion and it won't start. I think it's gas related. Where and how do I replace gas sensors/filters or fuel pump? What do I try and replace first? How do I I tell which is bad?


If you haven't replaced the fuel filter in the last year or so, do it now-basic maintenance.
Check if the pump is working by turning key to ON (not crank), and listen for the pump in the tank to come on for a couple of seconds. Should hear a short hum or buzz verifying tank is working. If you don't hear it come on, either the pump is bad, or power is not reaching it. May have to pull the pump connector off at tank, and check for 12 volts on pump wire when someone cranks the car. If power there, the pump must be bad. If no power there at pump, check fuses for pump and fuel pump relay.

Saturn ion fuel pump


Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

I recently filled up the gas tank, started the car and drove home(about a mile). My wife got in 15 minutes later and the car would not start. I did find a 15 amp fuse burned out labeled fuel pump. I...


You can try a few things:
  • Remove the gas cap to relieve the fuel pressure and replace
  • Pump the gas repeatedly to force any air out of the fuel lines
  • Prime the system by spraying a little starting fluid into the intake while someone tries to start the car.
I hope this solves your problem. Best of luck.
