SOURCE: 2004 Saturn Ion transmission

It should be on the drivers side and it looks like the oil dipstick. Usually the top of the handle is shaped like a " T ". Most of the time it will be yellow and say trans on it. It may be lower than the oil dipstick. Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

What does a battery symbol with an arrow pointing downward mean?and why did my 2006 saturn ion not want to exelerate after it came on?

There is most likely a problem with your charging system. Modern cars are very dependent on proper electrical power flow. If your charging system is not working correctly your engine will not run well, and eventually will stop altogether.

I changed the belt to my 03 ion and now the car sounds. Like it is struggling to turn over almost as if the tension pulley is to tight and won't let the car crank what should. I try next

Did you drive it after changing the belt? If so, it might not be tight enough ( not tight enough to run the alternator to charge the battery) or it is routed improperly. I've never seen an engine that couldn't crank because the belt was too tight.

The Serpentine belt broke on my 2006 Saturn Ion and am trying to replace but cant find the belt diagram?

You don't need a belt diagram. Just thread the belt with the back 'smooth' part to the smooth pulleys, and the 'grooved' part of the belt to the grooved pulleys until the last pulley you have is the tensioner pulley that is turned using a breaker bar in most cases.

2004 saturn ion does not start on a regular basis. After trying to start it and you try it again after starts. The battery is fine and all electrical works.

We were having problems with my son's 2004 Saturn Ion. The first thing that started flashing was the power steering warning, so fixed that by replacing the fuses. It kept flashing and then the coolant light came on and it wouldn't start. The battery was fine and well charged. We finally asked a friend who manages a vehicle service center for assistance. The Ion has a standard transmission and that was the problem. After only 15 minutes, they found the clutch switch was just a little loose. So they tightened it and the car popped right off and all the flashing warning lights disappeared. An easy fix but the car sat in our garage for 6 weeks as we couldn't find the solution!

I have a 2003 saturn ion and the battery light is on, does this mean the alternator is going and the car is running on battery power?, the lights, radio,wipers etc are working.

yes if its on when the car is running your alternator may not be charging. You can check with a voltmeter at the alternator when the car runs if you have about 14 volts it works if its only 12.6 and less it doesn't
