Question about 2003 Saturn ION

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Saturn ION Quad Coop and it has issues sometimes when you brake hard when coming up to a traffic light. Sometimes you have to brake hard like it or not, but the car acts like something is either sticking or slipping when you take off again from the hard stop. It is really jerky when you press the eccelerator and feels like something (brakes) are sticking or something else (transmission) is slipping. It jerks three or four times then accelerates normally. Has actually gotten to a point that you have to baby the car when stopping to avoid the noise and feel of sticking or slipping. Saturn dealership cannot tell me what it is unless I let them dig into the car to resolve it. The car is out of warranty and not worth enough to spend 1000 dollars for diagnostics that may or may not tell them what the issue is. Has anyone expeienced anything like this with the make and model of Saturn?

Well i can explain this and hopefully it helps solve some ideas, my brothers saturn has a system that works like a traction control and it applies the brake to either front wheel when the oposite wheel is spinning or slipping. so there is a sensor that detects the wheels loss of traction and it sends a message to computer that tells the other brake to apply. so if you can find out what controls this applying of brakes i bet you will fix this problem and i'm very sorry i cant help any more than this. but ask alot of questions and go to some shops and ask questions, this is also how you meet new people with experience for future problems.
