Question about 2003 Saturn ION
Me and my family were on our way to families house for Thanksgiving when the car turned off and started to shake like it did not have enough "juice" (my explanation). When we got to the side of the road, my husband tried to crank it again and it started and then shortly after began to shake and then cut off again. The only lights that came on during this ordeal was the battery light and oil. We checked oil it was fine. While we waited for family to rescue us, we listened to the radio (so there was nothing wrong with electrical connections). Could this be the alternator or battery or something worse. I have also maintained all scheduled maintenance and oil changes, there are only 80,000 miles on this vehicle. Any help is welcomed.
Hi, You might check both Battery and alternator. If the engine doesn't get power it will not run. Good luck

Have the fuel pump checked. It does sound like it isnt getting enough "Juice" as you put it, which means the pump is going out. Or its something in the fuel injection somewhere. Have it checked out by a mechanic. Good luck.

The car has had regular services with Ford and on the whole has been
6 months ago the car has developed an intermittent fault, i.e.,
whilst driving, regardless of which gear I was in or what speed I was doing, the engine completely cut out.
If I was travelling fast enough or going down hill, the engine would kick in
again. On level roads or driving in traffic, this was a severe problem and
highly dangerous, as I had to use the key ingition to restart.
The Ford garages in our area are not very familiar with the Probe and
are unable to cure the problem despite the following:
Replacing exhaust sensors
Fuel pump replacement
Fuses and relays checked
Any suggestions or ideas you may have to remedy this problem will be most welcome
