Question about Saturn Ion

2 Answers

My 2004 Ion has an engine surge when I stop and idle. RPM's shoot up then it almost dies. Also the power windows and locks will not work except the passenger side will go up and down. I replaced the switch unit but it didn't fix it. Thanks for any help!

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes should narrow down the cause of the problem with the engine surge. I would suspect a faulty throttle position sensor, but getting the codes should help narrow down the cause.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

may need to check your vacuum lines. Your car probably has a MAP senor (Manifold absolute pressure) so if you have some sort of leak into your intake manifold it will raise engine rpm to compinsate for the extra air.

Check your vacuum lines, make sure there is no leaks, and go from there, then all you electrical connection in the engine compartment.
I have a 1996 Jetta Trek Edition, the hoses, and wire harness, are so brittle, any movement can cause hoses and wire insulation to crack.
