My coolant warning came on in my 2004 Saturn Ion

I got stuck in the snow, I revved the engine a bit while being pushed out and now my coolant warning came on, did I blow a head gasket?

Not unless you have steam coming out of your tail pipe or when you check your oil it has the color of a milky solution. You just may need fluid.

First thing you need to do is check the level, and add as necessary, then monitor it to see of it goes down again.

No u didn't blow a gasket. Wut I should ask u is ihow long u ran ur engine when ur collant warning came on? There is a possibility that ur engine overheated or something. Blown head gasket can also cause overheating, but then again it depends on the circumstance. But y do u think ur head gasket is blown?

Why does my 2004 Saturn Ion turn off when I change into the driving gear?


is it turning off? or is it being restrained?
turning off is when it seems just as though you turned off the key
restrained is , like there were a brake on the engine that just stopped it? if it goes off with a big jerk you may have a stuck valve in the transmission
I may be able to help you better with a bit more info

My Saturn ion 04 coolant warning lights keeps coming on but there is the right amount of coolant. how to fix this problem?


You have a sensor in the engine that reads the coolant level. Try to unplug it and hook it back up to reset it. You could also take the hot side battery terminal off to reset it as well. If it remains on, it might need replaced. It will not hurt anything by staying on.

Keys Stuck in the Ignition , preventing turning off the engine.


Is the key stuck because you have an automatic transmission and you are unable to shift it into P (park)?

2004 saturn ion does not start on a regular basis. After trying to start it and you try it again after awile..it starts. The battery is fine and all electrical works.


We were having problems with my son's 2004 Saturn Ion. The first thing that started flashing was the power steering warning, so fixed that by replacing the fuses. It kept flashing and then the coolant light came on and it wouldn't start. The battery was fine and well charged. We finally asked a friend who manages a vehicle service center for assistance. The Ion has a standard transmission and that was the problem. After only 15 minutes, they found the clutch switch was just a little loose. So they tightened it and the car popped right off and all the flashing warning lights disappeared. An easy fix but the car sat in our garage for 6 weeks as we couldn't find the solution!

Coolant light 2004 saturn ion 4 cylinder


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.

Steering


It is an electric assist steering. On very heavy use the motor can become overheated and goes into "safe mode" only partial assist until it cools down. Repeated attempts at parrallel parking have been know to cause this.
