Although there are no set service intervals for brake fluid service, it should be done at regular intervals. Brake fluid is highly hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs moisture very well, even from the air. The moisture absorbed will lower the boiling point of the brake fluid and can give you that spongy feel when you depress the pedal. So getting back to your question, if this is normal service? The best answer is that it could be. Of all of the fluids in a vehicle, brake fluid is the most neglected but one of the most important. I cannot tell you what service interval to use but set it mentally and keep to that interval. I personally use 3 years or 36000 miles.
As for fuel induction service, this is not normal service.

Doesn't sound like you would know how to do a fuel pump pressure an flow testing , suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the proper diagnostic testing equipment .
Rather then guessing an replacing parts you don't need . (fuel injector's ) Could be low fuel pressure , a bad MAP or MAF sensor. What are the fuel trims showing ? short term an long term fuel trims . Are the O2 sensor's switching normally ?

A service garage stated that my Saturn Ion 2 which has 39,000 miles needs a brake system flush=$99.95 and a fuel induction service=$139.95. Is this standard operating maintenance service?


The brake system should be flushed, every 2 years or when brake service is needed. As for the Fuel Injection Service, NO.... just fill up your fuel tank and add a bottle of Chevron TECHRON fuel system cleaner in every 3 months.

Saturn ion fuel pump


Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !
