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!!!!!!

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.
missing cyl 2 and 4 replaced ign module 2 times and come back with same problem

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
3rd cylinder misfire, sputters down the road and kicks its horrible. Its in the shop now getting fixed again This is round 2 with the coil

Thought problem of check engine light on and car bucking and even cut off while driving, when ignition coil was changed. Good for a few miles then back to same problem! What's going on!!

Started by stalling and idling. Got coil pack and spark plugs changed. Ran great for a couple miles then engine light started blinking and the exhaust sounded loud while accelerating. Misfire in cylinder 4. Brought back and said it needed a new coil pack which I just did. Ran great for a couple miles and misfires again. I'm so upset. I can't afford this.
