Question about 2005 Saturn ION

Car cuts out and looses power while driving

I would be driving down the highway at 55 mph with the rpm running at 2000. All of a sudden it will start chugging and the rpm's will be at 3500-4000 and struggle to keep at 55 mph. Is there a solution or something that i can do that can solve this?

I can give you an Idea where to look for first check the cranchaft positoner sensor for proroer resistance it is a maagnets that picks up magnetic inductions and sense them the the E.C.U.and also check tha Air velocity sensor right by the INtake rubber tube thats sens the speed of air if is broken the filament will do what you car is doing and last t.c.s. throtle control sensor which is not likely to cause that problem but you never know chech for proper resistance rmkmechanic@hotmail.com look for my web site 2mechanicsonwheels.com

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour


If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

High rpm at highway speed


No idea why you would drive that fast,
but 2800 is about right at that speed

Did you just get the car & never own one that
went to 2800 at that speed

Tap the brake around 55 & see if the rpm goes up,
indicating that torque converter lock-up is working

Don't do that at 70 mph

Automatic, V-6, ideal RPM at 70 MPH?


Sounds like the transmission is not shifting into a higher gear. 2,500 to 3,000 rpm would be more realistic for a highway cruising speed. The higher rpm may not be a big deal as far as the engine is concerned but it will hit you pocket book pretty good when you loose the mpg that you should get. I would personally either limit your driving until it can be checked or at least slow down so that the RPMs are in the range listed above. Let me know what they find, my curiosity is peaked!

Transmission problem


car out of cruise control flutters or runs rough from 45 mph to 55 mph and once over 55 mph runs smooth. I notice from 45 to 55 the rpm guage moves with flutter or rough running engine. when i put in cruise control it smooths out.
