You might need a major tune-up...
and all the oil changes...
change the transmission and check if that works...
if after doing everything that i told you doesn't work...
then you might have a transmission problem!
so good luck!
saturns always break down a lot :(

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 .

My saturn ion is having trouble starting and just stalled out on me yesterday. I was wantdering if there was a recall on something about that. I thought i herad there was.


Depending on where you live, there is fuel line/pump/filter issues with these cars. Do you smell gas when you shouldn't? You should get the computer read to see if there are any issues. Is the check engine light on?

Hello, i have a 2004 saturn ion quad coupe, and i shiped it overseas to use it. saturn doesnt exist in the middle east so there is no parts, i asked alot n people say that SATURN has the same OPEL parts....


Good question, the answer is "yes", "no", and "maybe". GM shares a lot of parts internationaly with Opel, Saturn, GM, Chevy, Pontiac, etc. Especialy engine parts. Chassis and body is a different story. You may find tie rods, struts, etc the same, but a headlight won't fit from one to the other. If you've got a 2004 Saturn Ion, you likely have a 2.2 EcoTec. Pretty much all EcoTec parts will fit in one form or another, from one to another. Alternators, starters, etc. You may need to swap plug locations or types, but the actual hard part should "fit". You would need to go dumpster diving to compare or contrast. I guess it all depends on what you need? the Stick

could be a vacuum leak. When rpms are up, it has enough vac to operate properly. Check all vacuum hoses and make sure they are all on, and look for splits or cracks in the hoses
