Question about Cars & Trucks
Now be carefull here as if iam not mistaken this saturn is a opel/vauxhall/holden built in one of the southern states and it uses the same software and hardware as the astra/vectra/zafira/ range of GM built motors regardless of the name and these vehicles do suffer from the computer which is bolted to the inlet manifold right side and the heat damages them in the end .The codes to look for are cam sensor ,cylinder no ?? misfire and crank sensor ,changing all the parts makes no difference its still a new computer needed at the end of the day

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.

the scan tool that you are using will not read codes from all of the modules. take the car to a gm dealer to have it checked with a tech2

Check your plugs, check the ign module, test the injectors,take a fuel sample and make sure there isnt water in your fuel, if all these test good perform a compression test. if the compression test fails replace the head. if the compression test is good. check the timing

When I see all these codes i instantly think of two things. Vacuum leak especially intake manifold gaskets and Mass air flow sensors. Spray the engine with carb cleaner when its running and see if you get it to rev up,run rough or run different. Next unplug the MAF and drive the car, see if it runs normal.
