Adjust your idle on the throttle body! Should be a set of two nuts on throttle cables

One is front of the cat, and one after the cat of the exhaust.
The OBD Scanner should tell you which bank is producing the error.
Bank one is the front one.

SOURCE: 98 Isuzu Trooper stalls on cold start, idle issues..

I had the same issue on my 99 Trooper.

It would usually start when completely cold, but idle around 2k RPM.
It would drive fine. But if I shut it down, ran into a store, and came back out, it would start but immediately idle.
Had to ride the gas a little to get it into gear.
The Check Engine light has been going on and off for 6 months or so.

I took this to my local trusted repair shop (no Isuzu dealers within 200 miles).
The diagnosed the light, and found that the Intake Gaskets were bad or leaking.
The idling problem was related to the car not being able to control the amount of air coming in.

They replaced the Intake gaskets by the next day, and I haven't had a problem since. And no more check engine light, which has been on half a year.

Here's some details from my bill:
(1) Intake Gasket set $107.95
Misc materials $21.00
2.1 hours of Labor

The total cost to me was $345.00, and I definately don't feel gipped.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Saturn Ion 2. My check engine light

Remove the housing that covers the engine block and look behind the engine block, up against the firewall towards the bottom of the block there are some vaccum hoses(this is easier to get too if the car is up in the air, or lifted on jack stands) get yourself a aerosall can of brake cleaner and lightly spay around all the hoses til you find your leak( the vehicle must be running) be very careful cause the fluid you spray can catch fire if it hits the exhaust manifold when it gets hot. good luck

My 2003 Saturn Ion has an issue where at low speeds, such as stopping at a red light or stop sign, it will shutter like its about to stall. Once I accelerate, it seems to be fine and drive properly u


The coolant light is a bad thing. You need to check the coolant to see if it is low. That would cause the light to come on. IF it is low you could over heat the engine and that would cause a major problem.

I HAVE A 2003 SATURN ION. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. I HAD THE CAR HOOKED UP TO AN ANALYZER AND IT COMES UP WITH A MAP SENSOR CODE. I REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR AND THE PROBLEM DID NOT GO AWAY....


On your vehicle when the Check engine light comes on and a code is store, the driver can retrieve the codes themselves with the onboard diagnostics. Put the key in the on position and watch for the light.The light will blink in a code .FOR EXAMPLE:
If the light blinks 4 flashes then a pause then 3 flashes then .......yep code 43. Easy enough.
Oh yea, by the way A bad intake manifold gasket would be a constant problem which would cause a vacuum leak. ( That's if it effected engine performance) A vacuum leak would be sensed at the Oxygen sensor as a lean condition. Code 44

Try the codes yourself

Why does my 2005 saturn stall when i am driving


The air filter, fuel filter and oxygen sensor are definitely things to look at but the 2005 ION doesn't have a distributor it has an ignition module. Not the cheapest part. I own a 2005 ION and had a similar problem. It was idling at a low RPM and would stall when I had the clutch in long enough to let the engine idle. I simply cleaned the throttle body and the problem was solved. The throttle body gets a nasty build up on it and needs to be cleaned regularly. It's fine when the throttle is open but as soon as you allow the throttle to close to the idle position the engine is choked because of the build-up. My wife's car is an '06 Ion automatic and it was doing the same thing when she had the brake on at a light or a stop sign. Same solution worked just fine.

Also her car had a problem with stalling when she went over bumps and around corners. These cars have really bad ignition switches and key tumblers and it turns out after we had a dealer look at it that the weight of her key ring (it had way too many things on it) slowly caused the ignition to wear out and it would shut off the power when it jiggled the wrong way.

Not sure if these describe your solution but I hope that it helps.

2005 Saturn Ion manual transmission. Has had tune up and fluids changed. stalls at stop in cold weather.


do the following, it fixes these kinds of problems, follow the instructions exactly.
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

My saturn ion stalls when making left hand turn and hasatates this is a 2005 ion 3 already replaced map sensor still stalls


Sounds like a fuel issue to me. Maybe the fuel is sloshing to the right of the tank and causing air to be drawn into the fuel line. Just a guess but something to think about.
