When in traffic cause by road construction . Have clutch and brake pressed go to take foot up off brake and car will start moving fast, like pressing gas but not and gear shift is froze wont let me move gears or get out of 1st gear. Clutch is to the floor but will take off if brake is let out. But crazier yet if I shut engine off then restart car fast it will become normal , gears shift, clutch works normal. Ive had manal cars before and NEVER had this happen. Doesnt make sence gears freezing, clutch to floor, brake being pressed to stop, but when letting up on brake car wants to take off , without revving engine, engine is at idle. It scares me .just had car for 2 months. And now I hear about all recalls on this car . Can ignition switch problems cause this cause how if car is shut off then restarted problem goes away.does it control the transmission in anyway, like computer . This is newest car ive owned.

When you start the car noisey for a few second and then it quiet with lots of power. But I don't use it because it's not pumping any oil

does the tank need to be removed ?

there was a strong smell of gas after filling the tank so i looked under the car and saw fuel running out on the ground. {/4 tank in 10 min} it stopped after jacking up the right rear of the car

My daughter Saturn ion timing went out the car turns over but does not fire

Put in a new cd player. Had my key in the ignition for bout an hour and the car just shut off and went into passlock mode and now the car wont start or anything.

When I put my car into reverse it will only backup about 6 inches and if I try to backup any further the front drivers side by the tire starts to raise up and not go back down. I can put the car into drive and drive forward to make it go back down but cannot backup far enough to get the car out of the garage.

My ion is driving rough,pretty much like a truck, now. When I go over slightest bump, even going slowly, the font end makes loud clunking noise, more so on front left of car?

MyIon shakes in front end, left, frnt tire, wobbles,& feels like its falling off, when I go 50-55MPH.It pulls too, & if I turn slightly opposite way,it calms abit, but is still progressively worsening.Plus, I went thru pair of new tires,in 10mth, both wore fast, & unevenly. (w/all rotations & 1align done).I assume i need an align, via pulling & tire wearing, (prob from crappy pothole ridden roads, from winter).Im told other issue is from bent rims.I got new tires, but haven't mounted or done wheel align yet, BC if in I'll have to pay again, to mount tires to new rims. I cant afford new rims, & haven't found used ones off Saturn, but did find 4rims from kia sport age, 4 reasonable price, w/ same rim size as mine (15x6 4x100).I also saw same size from a Honda accord & from a Honda civic, up 4sale. Will any of them fit my car,& can I use, to replace ones I've got on now?

I bought my 2nd 04 Ion 1yr ago, w/ 96,000miles on it. Since 1st day, the car shakes horribly when u go 55 or more. I had it aligned, put new tires on, & tierodd replaced, but its now worse than ever. My new tires, bout in July,2014, wore unevenly& now, so bady, they need replacing. My front left tire feels & sounds like its ready to fall off, & no deems 2 know why. Please help.

rims are bent on my 04 ion, & I want to buy used set, to replace them. The size I need is 15x6 4x100, & though I've found plenty in this size, they've come off of Honda accords/civics, Chevy cobalts, kia sport ages, sect. Would any other make vehicle's rims be compatible w/Saturn?

Within the last few months have noticed that when my car is idling, there is a ticking noise coming from the front end. Something to be concerned with? Old age? I know I have to take it in and get it looked at, but it's nice to have some idea of what I'm facing before I go. Thanks.

My Saturn will not start. When you try to start it all it does is make a loud clicking noise. Ive replaced the ignition switch, the ignition cylinder, starter, and battery. I also cut the white wire for the passlock security and nothing. The alternator and fuel pump are fine. The fuses have been checked...I am at complete loss with this one. I cant get it to a dealership to have it hooked up to the diagnostics mach. Anyone have any suggestions?
Btw, I used to have a problem with it starting in the cold. Before I could wait about 10 mins and then it would start...not anymore!

I have had several things done since last August, when the check engine light came on but the last couple of things where the ignition coil pack and module, the cat. converter. The car does have 225,000 miles on it, not sure when the transmission or engine has or ever been changed could it be any one of those?

I had my car diagnosed and some of the codes that came up where the 400 and the 300 should I have the whole cat. convertor be replaced or should I try the O2 sensor first?

is there a recall for a fuel leak on the 2005 saturn ion?

My door sensor isn't working. I can lock my door but the alarm will eventually go off and my lights turn on, like my door is open. I don't know what to do. Can someone help?

the satur is a 2.2 as well as the safir

When I turn the wheel or make a light turn I hear this creaking or scraping I wish I can try to describe the noise but can't! :( my mechanic had my car on his hoist to do something else and noticed they looked a lil shot also said it not a safety issue? I took my car to a shop jus around the corner from his shop to have another opinion I mentioned wut he said thinks its the Same thing. I jus gotta be sure I'm hopin they can hold out till Thursday at most till I get my money cause I do want to take care of this thnkx in advance

it also had a code po171

How do I open the Rear View Mirror housing assembly so that I can install the wires back in?

I have seen thousands of messages on the web begging for answers. All they get is huge charges from the service departments and a run-around from GM. Where is a maintenance bulletin? Anything to resolve this issue?

I have 2003 Saturn Ion. airbag light stays on. dealership says module needs replaced and gonna cost me $1000 to have them fix it. Gonna do it myself. Where is module located and how do I reset airbag light on cluster? I have purchased my own module for little of nothing compared to their price.

Thanks

My original key broke off into my ignition, I had a locksmith come out and remove it and make a new key, but now it doesn't start the car just turns it on and has the anti-thief lock on. I brought a new switch and everything and it still wont start. I don't know what to do anymore I am a single mother working so I need my car and I don't have a lot of money to go to the dealership.

I'm about to replace the ignition control module and coil for the second time. It had this problem about 100,000 miles ago. This time however, the digital display for odometer will read ' COOLANT'. The reservoir is full, and the engine temp gauge never even gets up to half. ???

This all started when my check engine light came on. The oil was down by a quart. Since it was time for an oil change, that was done. Now it has only been 200 miles since that, and the check engine light came on again and it is down a 1/2 quart.

I also have had the knock sensor replaced twice. That is also still showing a problem.

My fuel gauge is also showing some problems.

I was advised to take it to the dealer to see what they can find.

My car has now 102,000 miles on it.

Replaced bulbs and verified fuse is good. Is there a switch on the shift stick? Anywhere in the wiring harness where an interlock or connector may be loose?

Was told U Joints on both front & Rear driveshaft are serviced as an assembly with the driveshafts there are no
U Joints or service procedures for U Joint replacement

The car is not overheating. when this occurs. Other times when the temperature gauge works so does the air conditioner

I have disconnected the negative battery terminal several times,and it stay's on.
