Question about 2003 Saturn ION

1 Answer

We have a 2003 LW200 with app 123,000 miles. Recently it will be running well but then will lose thrust and the engine will hesitate and the engine will sound like a plugged vacuum cleaner. Then everything will go back to normal. Do you have an idea of what I should be looking for? Thanks

Could be a faulty sensor. Is your check engine light on? If not, then it could be bad voltage regulator in altenator, leaky vacuum hose, or bad throttle position sensor. A sensor would have to be check with a sensor tester. THe check engine light usually will be on if a sensor is bad. A faulty camshaft position sensor will also do this just like a windstar I once had.

How many miles does it have on the odometer ? The reduce engine power has to do with the ETC electronic throttle control . May have TPS - throttle position sensor problem or the APP sensor . 04 Silverado REDUCED ENGINE POWER Case Study Part 1

Car lost power uphill with air on and was hard to start once. blue exhaust smoke when reved up otherwise runs good


Blue smoke is not good!! Piston rings are bad or valves. On a Mercedes it will cost you more than the car is worth at this point. Unless you have a sentimental attachment to the car and really really want to keep it., I would get rid of it. 123,000 mile is a great life for a 1989.

Flashing check engine light subaru forester


If there is a lot of ice then I would think that the coolant was iced up and the engine overheated as stated . The engine light is there to let you know that something drastic is about to happen to the engine and you should stop immediately , check the oil level and coolant level before driving any distance.
