I have had the same problem happen twice with my 2005 saturn ion. It ended up being the fuel injectors had gunk build up so I had to get my injectors and fuel system cleaned. I add a bottle fuel treatment every other oil change and have not had the problem since.

    I had the same problem on Tuesday. I ended up needing a battery, fuel injector cleaning and tune up. My car is now running better than before! I think it ended up costing me $400 for everything including a diagnostic at $99.00. I went to Firestone since it was the closest to where my car kept stalling out at.

Look into you MAF sensor...
Mass-Air-Flow sensor... it helps determine the right air/fuel mixture based on the incoming air temp and flow AFTER the air-filter.
So it gives bad readings and it stalls the car, particularly when coming to a stop from higher speeds... it should also be noticeable when bliping the engine.

Sometimes the sensor's get gunked up and you can clean it with brake cleaner... delicately with a pipe-cleaner... or a full on replacement of it.

It should be a simple straight forward job... the sensor is in the air intake tube between the intake manifold and the air filter.

Where can I find the adjustment screw on a 2006 ion Saturn

I am assuming that you are looking for the idle adjustment screw. Your car does not have one, the throttle is completely computer controlled via a motor that controls the throttle valve. If your car is idling fast, I would bet that you have a vacuum leak or less likely, a bad throttle body.

L300 Saturn 2003 trying to replace my throtter sensor. Can't figure out where to start from. Have no idea where's it located.

Your vehicle has electronic throttle control an the Throttle position sensor's are internal to the throttle body assembly ! Your vehicle has two throttle position sensors .
Throttle Body Assembly
The throttle assembly contains the following components:
?€¢ The throttle blade ?€¢ The throttle actuator motor ?€¢ The throttle position (TP) sensor 1 and 2 You have to replace the Throttle Body Assembly !
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the inlet hose assembly from the throttle body. Disconnect the throttle body electrical connection. Disconnect the hose clamps from the plenum-to-runner connector using theJ 43914 .
Remove the intake plenum bolts. Remove the EGR passage bolt. Rotate the plenum up and remove the throttle body coolant hoses, EVAP hose, and vacuum line from the throttle body.
Remove the throttle body nuts. Remove the throttle body.

Call your nearest automotive body shop and they can tell you. They might even have one on hand, or sell you one at a discounted price. But first make sure you have the VIN.

My 2004 saturn ion throttle sticks at between 1100 and 1500 rpms when i stop at redlights, etc. if i turn the key off and immediately back on, the idle returns to normal, (750-800 rpms), but may stick...

Actually, you will have to have the throttle body bore cleaned physically. There will be carbon build up preventing the TB plate from closing completely. Lucas gas additive used twice a year will prevent this from reoccurring. Mercury Marine gas additive is GREAT as well!
