Question about 2004 Saturn ION
Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.
Change the filter and look for metal deposits in both the fluid and the filter. Minute shavings like sand or smaller is normal as long as there is not a lot. If you see a lot or see big particles then gears have been ground and you are looking at trouble. Get fixed early. Otherwise if filter is clean and fluid is fine and tranny still does this they make additives for tranny's to help with slipping. I use tranny medic. Follow the directions as you will need to drain some of the fluid out. Also do not add to your tranny unless you have met or exceeded the mileage specs on the bottle of the tranny medic. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: shift knob problems
When I first bought my Redline the shift knob kept coming off in my hand. Actually it flew off and would end up on the floor somewhere.
When I complained about this, they fixed the problem, and they told me that they drilled a hole through the shifter shaft up to the knob end and inserted a long bolt. They said this was the procedure to resolve this issue.
If you are having a problem removing the knob, its probably because they repaired this issue before the dealer delivered the car. Judging by their remarks to me it was not an easy repair and I'm assuming to change the shift knob would be a very difficult task.

You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.
Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Transmissions have "filters." It may need to be changed as the fluid may be dirty and clogging some of the pressure valves in the ******.
