I bought one and someone has added an aftermarket air cleaner that seems to be causing difficulties (stalling, losing power and backfiring)
I have a 2005 Saturn Ion with less than 50km on it. In Nov 2009 for some reason the car would not start - it was winter and was late at night. We tried the next day and it started. This happened again during the winter but after a boost it started. We had the battery replaced in Feb 2010 and from time to time, the Saturn does not start and it's not during winter. We brought the car into the dealership and the said it may be a security feature that prevents the car from starting - that is we didn't insert the key in properly. I am no expert but I don't buy it. After all the years since we had the car, we don't know how to insert the key to start the car? Also, the dial on the speedometer goes crazy while driving as it sways back and forth. What is wrong with the car? How much wwould repairs cost us- best estimate appreciated without seeing the car. Winter is approaching and i would hate to have an unreliable car. Should we replace the car? Thanks for your input.

The heat/air cond. work, the defrost works, and the power windows work. Trying to determine if it's burned out bulbs or fuses. I'd like to correct the problem myself if possible.
