Saturn Ion Check Engine Light Due to Engine Misfire

(44 reports)

The ignition module or an ignition coil may fail causing an engine misfire, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Diagnoses will be required to determine the cause and needed repair.

My oil pan got broken so I had and oil leek and then my engine blew there was alot of smoke and now it keeps making a clicking noise but it won't start!!! -
While driving, I can feel my car "putter", I step on the gas pedal and all the gauges drop down. It takes about 3 times of turning my car back on & pressing the gas pedal before the car will stay on and move. We took it to a mechanic and the engine light was reading a misfire. they changed the spark plugs, and the car is still doing it. they said their only other thought was the coil packs. If other people are having this problem, maybe this should be added to the long list of RECALLS!!!!!! -

Same problem, many trips to dealer and unsuccessful repair. Went to junkyard and purchased used ignition coils and installed myself and it fixed the problem for a time. Eventually, the problem returned -
Parked it for the night, it was fine...woke up the next morning to it misfiring. Put in injector cleaner, chaned boots, plugs, and coil. Also chaned out fuel filter. Next step is ignition coil. Only code coming up is a random misfire code. Still in the process of repairs. I have a 2006 Saturn ion 2 with 71350 miles. -

engine misfire #3 -
Took car in to have it smogged. When technician hooked it up to test, the engine light came on. He checked it out on the diagnostic and said one cylinder was misfiring and it would cost about $2,000 just to get into the engine not to mention fixing it. What a shame. We had just had both recalls done. We've maintained the car meticulously since we bought it new. -

No.3 Cy misfire, and the engine light is on, i've changed the filter and cleaned the oil pipe, but it doesn't work. Sometimes, when the engine light is on, there is a light smell of gas. -
check engine light came on, diagnostics states it as a random misfire. after replacing plugs, boot, and flushing, we were able to determine it was the ignition coil causing the problem. -
I had this problem first at 80,000 and again at 195,000 and last at 205,000. It ended up bending the valves and ruined the engine. -
