I had the same problem. My 2004 Ion had 85000 miles on it. It was a bad sensor. The whole coolant reservoir tank needs to be replaced to fix the problem. This was covered under the extended warranty that we had. If you are doing this repair yourself, a hose clamp tool is recommended for simplicity.

2004 saturn ion coolant light Keeps appearing


If you are saying that it comes on now and then, and goes off, your may just need to add Anti-freeze/boil to the overflow tank. Does it come on when you're coming to a stop or going up or down a hill, if yes, add coolant to the overflow tank to bring it up to the correct level, not the radiator.

A small loss over a long period of time is acceptable, but constant refilling, indicates a leak either internally, with the coolant exiting through the exhaust, or one that you should see under your car occasionally. Sometimes you'll find your coolant leak in the floorboards if the heater core or hose leaks.

If your sensor comes on after driving a while & goes off as a result of adding coolant, then you'll probably need to pressure test the cooling system to identify where the coolant is going. Bad hose, seal, headgasket, head, etc.

Good luck !

The word "coolant' comes on on the odometer screen


Check the collant level in the coolant bottle. If low add coolant. If it is O.K, then you must have a bad coolant level sensor. It is located inside the bottle and is not serviceable, so you need another Coolant Bootle, and it cost about $60. Before replacing, I would try to remoce the coolant bottle and give it a good cleaning with hot water. You can replace it witha new one, or try the luck in a junk yard.

2004 Saturn Ion oil change


Oil drain plug is its on the back passenger side of the engine out of sight unless you under the car itself .

It's a cartridge filter that goes into a canister.You'll need a 32mm oil filter canister socket to remove the cover to access the filter. You can find it at PepBoys for less than $10 by the other oil change supplies.

Does anyone know if I have to put a certain kind of coolant in my 2003 saturn ion?? ive already put coolant in the car but the coolant light keeps going on


full is full. doesnt matter what fluid is in it but you should never mix the green stuff with dexcool (orange stuff). If the lights is still on then the sensor in the coolant bottle is defective or contaminated or your not full yet.
