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

SOURCE: I need to find the fuel filter on a 2004 saturn

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

SOURCE: check engine light on,running rough code P0172

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.

SOURCE: Rough Idle/Runs Rough and low power

I would take it in and have them do a diagnostic on it, sounds like the cam shaft sensor to me.

Saturn Ion running loud and rough


Check for other loose heat shields.
The shield you removed would allow more noise to enter the cabin too.

My 2005 saturn ion key is stuck in the run positon. car won't shut off any clues as to why or how to fix


the ignition cylinders fall apart and the small plat that holds the tumblers in the cylinder falls out of place you might get lucky and insert a allen wrench into the release hole and pull the cylinder out the hole is about 3/16ths you can get a cylinder coded at a chev or saturn dealer bring your tittle and photo id if you can't remove the cylinder you will need the whole housing

2005 saturn ion 141k miles on it. when you start car it runs real rough, put on a code reader and it read miss fires all cylinders.


Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

2005 saturn ion that seems to be running fine...The engine symbol light is on? What can cause this?


You'll need to find out what code has been stored. Some auto parts stores will have a scanner that you can use. It could be an evaporative emission code that will turn on the light but the engine will still run fine. If fumes are escaping from a leaking evap system the light will come on. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap.

Check engine light on 2007 saturn ion


Your best bet there, is to run in to one of the big autoparts stores (Autozone, Pep Boys etc) and get a free code scan done. If the code doesn't point you in direction of fix, get back to us with that code(s) and we will be happy to assist you further.
Much cheaper and faster this way.

Reduced power light/check engine runs very rough 2005 ion


usually when it gets colder outside the car will misfire and run rough because the ignition module/coil pack goes bad and makes it misfire,youre gonna have to replace the coil and module,,its the black long piece that sits on top of the spark plugs,1 wire connector and 4 10mm bolts remove them and pull up hard to pop the plug boots off the spark plugs,then install the new parts and you should be ok
