The filter should be a cartridge type located underneath the enginecover plastic.it is usually on the right side of engine bay near the front of car.It will have a black plastic hex on the housing it is 1"and a quarter big and probably has a torque spec written on it something like 18 n-m or something.Hope it helps.

Tools for oil change


You only need a few. You need a wrench or socket that fits the oil pan drain plug. Car makers have used all sizes of drain plugs, don't know Saturn's, anywhere from 13 millimeter to 19 millimeter size wrench or socket. One of them will fit yours.
So one wrench (when you find the right one) and you will need a drain pan to catch the oil. Next you will need an oil filter wrench or tool. There are several types and sizes-when you buy the new oil filter you can get the filter remover that fits your filter . A parts person should be able to help you select the right one. Also buy a small funnel to pour new oil into the engine .And don't forget to have a few rags handy to clean up spills and wipe off areas. That's about all that is normally required.

    Press the button located in the center of the instrument cluster ONCE. The display should now read "OIL LIFE" instead of vehicleicon1.png mileage.

    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.

    I want to look and change my trnsmission fluid on


    Take the driver's side tire off and look straight over the rotor to the trans and there's a plug bolt that needs a hex socket to get it out.

    Dealer says it uses Dextron III trans fluid, not gear oil or motor oil like in some smaller cars.

    Want to change our own oil in 2004 Saturn Ion and cannot find how to do it and what tools we will need?


    Make sure your car is off and cool (cannot have been running for the last hour as the oil will burn)

    Owner's manual will say exactly what oil and oil filter to use. Most stores have cross reference sheets as well

    You'll need a socket wrench with an adapter for the oil filter and an adapter for the drain plug
    You could get an oil filter strap as well instead of the adapter.

    Remove the filler cap on the top of the engine....

    Put a drain tray under the drain pan and remove the drain plug (it will leak oil out as you're loosening it). Do not lose the drain plug as you'll be using it still. Check plug to see if there's any extra metal on it (ie. engine parts are grinding) Let drain and then repeat for oil filter.

    Once completely drained, put the plug back in and then poor a bit of oil into the oil filter and then reinstall the filter. Pour the required amount of oil in through the top of the engine and close the cap....
