Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

    I own a 2007 Ion and have the same issue, Saturn Corp says only certain vehicles were recalled "mine wasn't one of them" but my car has a faulty line in the same spot. Please join me in reporting this safety issue and hopefully GM will add all ION's with this part recalled before someones car explodes! Call NTSB at 888-327-4236 and report your issues to GM and Saturn and let them know that they need to fix this safety issue by recalling all the vehicles with this poor made plastic part handling fuel.

Looks like Saturn has a recall for the fuel delivery system. I just scheduled my 2006 ion for repair 11.27.

My wife called GM yeterday to see if she could "get scheduled" to have the fuel pump in her 2006 Ion with 25K miles!!! repaired. The GM rep knew all about it and told she had to call the Saturn division, The Saturn rep told her that Satrun knows nothing about any recall for fuel pump problems! Wife attempted to direct her to the NHTSA web site where the recall is clearly posted, and the rep told her they don't recognize that body, or some souch nonsense.
Maybe she dialed the wrong number??? This is outrageous.
Can you enlighten me as to how you got "scheduled" ?

Had to replace fuel pump in 2006 Saturn Ion... it's only THREE!


i just had the same issue . . .I have been having starting problems with my car (2006 Saturn Ion) and smelling gasoline. It turns out the hose connected to the fuel pump was cracked and leaking gas. The mechanic said that this is a safety issue and should be recalled. He feels that the one hose is not connected and harnessed properly and the vibration to the hose eventually caused the crack. I googled "Saturn 2006 Ion fuel leak" and several other people have had the same issue. What is also the major problem here is that the hose is configured with the fuel pump itself. So, the entire mechanism had to be replaced. It cost me 700.00 for a cracked hose because the fuel pump had to be replaced and my car only is 46,000 miles. This is a major safety issue. I drove for 2 weeks with a car that was leaking fuel. Saturn must know about this and is waiting for the same situtation to happen, but for the car to blow up instead. PLEASE IF YOU ARE READING THIS CAUSE YOU HAVE THE SAME ISSUE . . . . contact the office of defects and the NHTSA . . .This is a saftey issue and a recall needs to be in affect . . .
