Starting issues with my 2001 Saturn ion sc2 series


Crank and cam position sensors are probably at fault, but test the fuel pump and change the fuel filter.A diagnostic test will tell you what it is.

What would cause my 2004 saturn ion to bog down at 25 to 30 mph


Almost certainly a sensor is faulty somewhere. Take it to a garage and ask them to put it on an error code reader.

Misfiring and now won't start


Hi: First I would check to see if the plugs are firing. They have a cheap little tool at the local parts place for this. if there is no ignition, I would check the codes again. It should store the last code before it quit. If you have fire, I would check fuel and compression next. Does a little fuel in the intake make it fire? I believe there are three fuses for the ECM on this car. Are they all good? and is there voltage there?
Let us know what you find for further help.

2004 Saturn Ion wont start from time to time when it is cold outside.. Like this morning my daughter went outside and the car started right up with the temp outside 7 degrees. She warmed it up for awhile...


LOL repeating questions. Its your ignition switch. its a common problem with ions ( I myself have a 04 ion and had it replaced twice in 3 years) repair is around 400 dollars with labor. Just google "ion not starting in cold weather" and youll get TONS of threads. No recall either its stupid

2006 Saturn ION2 won't start. Happens every few


This is a very common problem with the Saturn. It's a bad ignition switch. You need to replace it.

Google on common saturn problems and you'll see that hundred of Saturn owners have had this very problem.

It's really amusing how each dealer prances around it and doesn't tell their customers that it's a common problem. If you bring it to them they will know right away what the problem is but they may pretend not to know right away...EVERY Saturn dealer has fixed this on dozens and dozens of their vehicles...

Try checking the fuel filter or the fuel pump. Sometimes if you run the fuel until it is almost empty, it pulls debri off the bottom of the fuel tank and it gets stuck in the fuel filter. It them starves your engine for fuel. Sometimes if you bang on the fuel pump, it will loosen some of this debri, and the vehicle may start, or you may just need to replace the whole fuel pump.
