Question about 2006 Saturn ION

1 Answer

TROUBLE STARTING SOMETIMES WHEN I GET GAS, THE CAR WILL NOT START. I HAVE TO START IT ABOUT 3 TIMES BEFORE IT WILL START, AND THEN WHEN YOU TRY TO PULL AWAY IT WILL DIE AGAIN. AFTER YOU GET GOING THE CAR SEEMS TO STRAIGHTEN OUT. IT ACTS LIKE THE OLD CARS DID WHEN YOU FLOODED THE CARBURATOR. SOMETIMES YOU CAN EVEN SMELL GAS.

Having starting issues


Sounds like a bad connection on your ignition switch or wiring in the fuel pump circuit.

My car is not starting


So it is turning the motor over but dont start ?. Make sure it has gas in it. Not by the gas guage it may be bad. Add 2 gallons of gas and cycle the ingnition seitch on till the dash lights come on and then wait 3 seconds. Do this 3-4 times to prime fuel up to engine and then try to start it. Remember you need fuel air and spark for a engine to run.

2004 gmc sonoma why does it take 2-3 times cranking before it starts and only does it sometimes?


install pressure gauge and watch when key is turned off to see if pressure drops to zero if so bad drain back valve in fuel pump replace it or deal with it or could be cheap aftermarket pump and has hard time building unnecessary pressure to open poppet valves between before fuel injectors

Our car starts right up in the morning just fine. The rest of the day in and out of car it has trouble starting. What could it be?


If battery and connections are good (it's a big draw,different then other components).Because a bad connection or old battery can sometimes work the starter after it sits,doesn't make it .Some times a starter has a bad spot,thats whe you see some one get under and directly jump it.If buying a battery get at least recommended cranking amp size battery,Larger auto stores check battery no charge (bad joke). Its free google /bing who does a free battery test.Auto zons,pep boys,sears.May even be running a sale.Most switch out battery for fee (no charge*),*Hopefully you will laugh later.

I have a 2006 Cadillac STS 3.6 V6. When I purchased it from the dealer on 8/8/11, there was virtually no oil in the engine. I put in 3 quarts of Mobile 1 synthetic and I only fill up with premium unleaded...


Probably a crankshaft position sensor problem. Is the check engine light on, and if not, does it EVER come on? People sometimes do remove trouble lights to sell troubled vehicles!

My 2005 pontiac grand am is having trouble starting sometimes. When I turn the key, I hear a humming noise and I know it will start, but when i dont hear it the car wont start. The security light comes on...


my guess is that your fuel pump is giving up on you. try hitting your gas tank on those days that wont start, best if you have somebody help you do it while the other try starting it

Trouble starting


Your starter contacts are bad. You have 2 options: Replace the starter assembly, or remove the starter & replace the internal solenoid contacts & the solenoid plunger. This is a common problem with Toyota starters; I replace contacts 3-4 times a week.
