Question about 2004 Saturn ION

Open Question

Average cost to replace u joint on 2004 Saturn Ion. Not sure if this is the problem yet, I've got it in the shop, just want to know average cost if it comes back as the problem. Car is riding rough, I can feel a slight vibration on the gas pedal and I'm hearing a sound over and above the engine. You can't hear anything outside and it seems to get louder between 40 and 60 mph.

SOURCE: average repair cost for cv joint or axle replacement

Average time should be around 2-3 hours. Every shop charges different hourly rates. Dealerships will be around at least 80 an hour, smaller shops will run lower.

CV joints if you notice a difference when cornering, poping like noice is wheel bearings. Check CV boot to see if there is any separation in the boot that would allow the grease to get contaminated.

SOURCE: Manual 2003 Saturn Ion: clutch, brake, and shaking issues

It sounds like your parking brakes are seized and are on. This is what may be causing your wheels to vibrate badly, the brake rotors may be warped and needs to be replaced and may be the brake calipers too, due to the excessive heat built up by the brakes dragging. As soon as you can, have a shop like speed muffler shop inspect the brake system for you, I believe they do this free of charge, unless you are good with tools or know someone. You can go to Auto Zone and buy the replacement parts, Brake pads, rotors and may be brake caliper. The calipers may be fine, so your parts cost so far is under $100.00 and Auto Zone can give you the Step by step instructions and will have loner tools, like the rear brake caliper parking brake reset tool. Good luck, keep me posted and try not to drive the car for too long of a distance. Don't need to damage any more parts like the wheel bearings.

There is a clicking noise whenever I turn my steering wheel and I was wondering what it was and if I can fix it myself. It's a 2004 Saturn Ion?

My guess is bad cv joints and since ur asking I'm guessing it might be a challenge for u to fix. Check out for 2004 Saturn cv joint replacement.

What caus upon acceleratione my 2004 saturn ion occasionally slip out of gear at a stop then it will jump back in gear upon acceleration

Check your transmission fluid level. It may not be possible for the average owner to do this, as Saturn transmissions are made to he used for 100,000 miles, then serviced for another 100,000.
So they don't have a dipstick .
If you have had any leaks under it, it most likely is low .

Cost tie rod


If you buy the parts online at like Amazon about $20-50 each piece.
If you use a local auto parts store about the same perhaps a little more. If you have the ball joints done at a shop several hundred plus you pay double for parts. Some shops will install parts that you buy thus you pay for the labor.

I hope this helps.

My 2004 Saturn Ion is making a grinding noise when I turn left, only left and only the first left turn of the day. I just had bearings replace, front brakes replaced and rotors replaced. This grindi

CV joint on the left side is going out. It will grind once or twice "sometimes" when first starting to drive. Best to have both CV joints replaced. Roughly 400.00 to 450.00 parts and labor. Don't take it to a dealer. Dealer shop rates run 90.00 an hour. It will instantly become a 700.00 to 800.00 dollar job. A good reputable mechanic can order replacements and have it done in a day!

Average cost of repair for o2 sensor and secondary air injection valve for a 2007 saturn ion

ONE O2 sensor could cost anywhere from $40 to $100, and the injector valve is another 50-$60, labor for both should be about an hour to and hour and a quarter, so I would think your total for both should be somewhere in the area of $135 to $225, figure something like $175. A private garage is going to be less expensive than a dealership, and neither item is real difficult to do for a good backyard mechanic.
