Question about 2004 Saturn ION
Make sure your car is off and cool (cannot have been running for the last hour as the oil will burn)
Owner's manual will say exactly what oil and oil filter to use. Most stores have cross reference sheets as well
You'll need a socket wrench with an adapter for the oil filter and an adapter for the drain plug
You could get an oil filter strap as well instead of the adapter.
Remove the filler cap on the top of the engine....
Put a drain tray under the drain pan and remove the drain plug (it will leak oil out as you're loosening it). Do not lose the drain plug as you'll be using it still. Check plug to see if there's any extra metal on it (ie. engine parts are grinding) Let drain and then repeat for oil filter.
Once completely drained, put the plug back in and then poor a bit of oil into the oil filter and then reinstall the filter. Pour the required amount of oil in through the top of the engine and close the cap....

SOURCE: 2004 Saturn Ion oil change
Oil drain plug is its
on the back passenger side of the engine out of sight unless you under
the car itself
It's a cartridge filter that goes into a canister.You'll need a 32mm oil filter canister socket to remove the cover to access the filter. You can find it at PepBoys for less than $10 by the other oil change supplies.

Tips for a great answer:
Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position. There is no need to start the car.
Press the button located in the center of the instrument cluster ONCE. The display should now read "OIL LIFE" instead of vehicle mileage.
