You need to replace either your high pressure line or your return line before you go and replace the entire power steering pump which could have a leak in it too. somehow you are losing fluid presure somewhere due to a leak .

    There is no fluid in the 2005 Saturn Ion. This is an electrical system. Please know what you are talking about before you give advice to others!

2007 SATURN ION POWER STEERING MESSAGE. MESSAGE FALSHES AND STEERING IS TOUGH TO TURN. i TURN CAR OFF AND TURN IT BACK ON AND IT'S FINE UNTIL MESSAGE COMES ON AGAIN. IT MAKES NO NOISE.


  • You have an electronic power steering system.

  • Your power steering module, steering assist motor and the steering sensor could all be problems. You will have to have a scan performed to see what the exact problem is. There is no other way.

  • The power steering aides you in turning the wheel. When the light comes on there is a malfunction and this is why it is hard to turn the wheel, because the steering assistance of the power steering is gone at that time. Turning the car off just temporarily resets the PCM.

I have a 2007 Saturn Ion with a power steering issue. The car only has 31,000 miles, but fell short by 14 days of the warranty. We contacted the dealer, they ran the vin # and said the vehicle was sold on...


you can now buy just the power steering motor for $150 instead of the complete column for $600,,the motor overheats and cuts out,thats all you need,easy to install or about $150 ish laborat dealer,that will fix the cutting out and no power steering issue,,,,common,,,,,checvy has a recall on the cobalt for this concern but saturn does not even thou its the same exact part,,,,because when GM went bankrupt they are NO longer responsibile for any saturn issue,,,,,,hence,,no recall

I can't even find where the power steering fluid goes and the owner's manual is no help at all.


There is NO power steering fluid,,,your car DOES NOT have a fluid hydraulic system,,,its all electrical on the steering column,,,,the motor goes bad on the cloumn and causes it to cut out,,,,,if thats your issue,youre gonna need a new steering clomun

2005 ion power steering problem


remove electronic power steering (EPS) motor. remove the 4 bolts that hold on the motor housing. remove the housing. using a tooth brush, clean out the 'brush' dust from between the commutators. don't use cleaner spray as you might degrease the bearings. don't use anything metal to clean out the dust you might scratch or nick the commutators.

this solution has worked for over 500 miles for me. I'll keep you posted.

2004 Saturn Ion - Power Steering Problem


The motor on the power steering is overheating which causes the thermal overloads to trip.

go tho the junk yard and buy a motor for a 2004 thru 206 ion or a 2004 thru 2008 chevy colbalt.

they are all the same. You may have to buy the wholle steering colum but you can remove the motor with 2 - 12mm bolts and a quick dissconnect pulg. Replace just the motor as the whole steering colum is a bit more complicated. the dealerships want you to replace the whoe steering colum, in fact that is the only way they sell the parts. It is a scam. Just the motor needs to be replaced.
I have done it on 4 different ions. try to get a motor with few as possible miles and as new as possible. I have paid between $50 and $125 for these. The dealer wants $900 fnad about $500 to install. It is very simple to do. Only 2 bolts.
