Since your "check engine" light is on you can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys. They can sell you a part and may have a diagram about where it fits. Just speculating it may be a coolant temperature sensor.

It sounds like you are not getting into the Cold Start mode.

Red battery light illuminated on the dash of my 2006 Saturn ion3 4 cylinder 2.4l

The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled . The ECM - engine computer turn's on the battery light if it think's there is a problem . Sends a message to the instrument cluster over the class 2 serial data network . Have you had the vehicle checked for DTC's diagnostic trouble code's ?

The car was hestitating so I changed the fuel filter and now the check engine light is on. Why is the check engine light on?

Bad gas isn't too likely

Sea Foam is a waste of your money

You don't diagnose & make repairs by adding
a Genie in a bottle

You have an OBD Check Light on,so why have you
not retrieved the codes & diagnosed from there?

If you run the fuel pump dry you can ruin that
It depends on fuel to cool & lube it

Fuel filters don't fix a thing either,they filter fuel & last 3 to
6 years with todays plastic fuel tanks that have little debris
vs the old steel tanks of 30 years ago

Once you get the codes you will find you have cylinder misfires,
bad ignition coils
The oxygen sensors get replaced at 100,000 miles,that is another
Have to clean the MAF Senser at least once a year

Need to do some studying

Hestitation on start, takes second time two start. also hestitation on take-off.

Check the fuel filter to see if the fuel filter is restricted,then have the fuel pressure checked to make sure it is enough.If there is a code in the computer then there will be a check engine light on,have the codes read,this will help diagnose the problem.

Can't get check engine light off

Take your car to Auto Zone and have then run a FREE SCAN to your computer in your car. If something comes up that is wrong they will tell you what is needed. If nothing comes up have them clear the codes from your cars computer

Check Engine Light '07 Saturn ION3

well with a check engine light on you really should have it brought somewhere to read the codes stored in your computer it dont make sense to guess at what the code or problem is,since there are several,several may be a 02 sensor,a evap code,i think a few of the auto parts places have code readers and read for free.

Check egine light

the transmision range sensor is the problem basically when it is faulty it sends false gear signals to the ecu the ecu gets the trouble code from the trans ecu and you r trans goes into fail safe mode causing it to only operate in third gear which would cause the very slow acceleration where it seems like its in nuetral basically you need to replace your trans range sensor
