Question about Saturn Ion
Stalls out every once in a while, then just needs a jump to the battery ti start. took it in for an oil change, they said they couldnt change it because of broken head gasket. Where can I go from here?
Head Gasket has nothing to do with changing the oil
If you have a bad head gasket the motor would over heat
& you would be using coolant
Best to go to a local shop & have a talk there
& get your questions answered

turn the lights on and off then try starting the car. some how it restarts the system and you can drive off. my car does the same thing and when i do that i can always start the car

i don't think so.
with a broken gasket, you have to have it repair immediately because it would create more problems and more $$$ to spend.
you might end up with a broken engine if you would continue to use it.
tnx 4 using fixya,

Unfortunately there are too many things that could be wrong Most mechanics will not be tied to a price because the head gasket alone is probably not the only fault.Generaly the head itself is the culprit for the symptom your giving.It may be corroded or cracked and may not be repairable.Then theres all the other bits and pieces like hoses,thermostat etc.Once its all apart and can be inspected you will get your quote,head is usualy sent to machine shop to be inspected and a price for repair/replacement is given by them.Usualy takes a couple of days to get a full quote unless your mechanic has all the nessecary tools and equipment to do it on site.Good luck and hope it all works out ok

these cars go through coil packs regularly as the packs overheat due to their position on the end of the engine. I have 3 lanos and have replaced all coil packs at around 90,000 k's.
Hope this helps.

posibly starter is failing or timing may be off . . see if you are getting spark and check for fuel delivery
