Now the car starts right up but only runs on 2 cylinders. can anyone tell me what is wrong now? the owner of the car does not have the money to take it to a shop and spend huge amounts fixing the car.

    You say you replaced the coil pack? How many coil packs did you replace 1 or both? They have two packs and each runs 2 cylinders. 1 pack for 1/4 and 1 for 2/3.

    the 2004 saturn with the 2.2 eco engine has the coil packs sealed and right on top of the head so you replace both at the same time.

    You are talking about the coils themselves. You have an IC control for cyliders (coils) 2/3 and another IC control for (coils) 1/4 these are circuits 406 and 423. Also check the ignition control module ground to ensure clean and tight.
