Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

I have a 1997 saturn sw2 that stopped runnuing changed fuel pump wont idle error code #4 cylinder is miss fireing changed ignition module car starts runs ruff changed spark plugs & wire set


You need to make sure the cylinder is getting fuel and that it doesn't have a vacuum leak at the intake that is leaning it out and causing a misfire, if that checks ok then determine if the #4 cylinder has acceptable compression as compared to the other three, all cylinders should been within 5% of the cylinder with the highest pressure on test.

What does a censor module do on a saturn ion 2005


It senses the position of the camshaft to know when each cylinder is at top dead center to calculate when to give a spark. The engine will not run and the coil will not fire without this module

My 2005 saturn ion key is stuck in the run positon. car won't shut off any clues as to why or how to fix


the ignition cylinders fall apart and the small plat that holds the tumblers in the cylinder falls out of place you might get lucky and insert a allen wrench into the release hole and pull the cylinder out the hole is about 3/16ths you can get a cylinder coded at a chev or saturn dealer bring your tittle and photo id if you can't remove the cylinder you will need the whole housing

5.3 liter Chevy engine #1 Cylinder not firing at idle


My opinion...

Year? Miles?

There's no way I'd dive into a "HEAD GASKET"
diagnosis without pressure testing the cooling
system and (wet/dry) COMPRESSION testing
the whole engine...

Even if it is a "HEAD GASKET"... the entire engine
might be ready for a REFRESH... and tossing a new
Head gasket into a TIRED ENGINE not insubstantial
(a lot of wasted time & money)...

Come back with some compression numbers...

but don't bother with any of this if your engine oil has water in it.

changing plugs is not the answer
adding quality injector cleaner to the fuel is a far better option as misfires are from problem injectors / low fuel pressures and pump problems
have the fault codes read to get a close answer to the problem

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I need to know if i need to change spark plugs


Depends. How many miles are on the car? Is it idling or running rough? Are you getting poor gas mileage? Is your check engine light on? If so, take it to Autozone and ask them to plug their code reader into your car. They can tell you if you've got a mis-fire. If you do, then sure, go ahead and change the plugs. Make sure you gap them to the correct specification and torque to the correct spec.

You could also take one of the plugs out and look at the tip. If it has a light-brown color to it and isn't covered in oil or looks burnt or black, then that plug is fine.

Rough Idle/Runs Rough and low power


I would take it in and have them do a diagnostic on it, sounds like the cam shaft sensor to me.

Very Rough running engine


I think the auto-lite plugs are probably your problem. yes it sounds like mis-firing. That's one of the few times the check engine light flashes. I'd suggest changing the plugs to a NGK plug, that's the ONLY plug we use in our Audi's and VW's (work at a VW/Audi shop). Try that, and it should take care of the rough running, if not, it will probably need coils too.
