Re: 2006 Saturn Ion with Cobalt Engine

The 2.2L intake manifolds are identical for all 2003-2006 GM Delta cars (Ion, Cobalt, G5, HHR). Sames goes for all mechanical parts, ignition coil pack, and ignition module. Swapping any of these...

Re: Cooling Fans Run After Engine Swap

What are the exact code numbers you are/were getting?

I don't think there's a fault in the cooling fan wiring at all.

I suspect that a ground connection for the ECM is weak or missing which is...

Re: P0420 Issue

An exhaust leak in the flex pipe between the exhaust manifold and the downpipe is very possible. They have a very high failure rate in all the Ion, Cobalt, HHR, and G5 cars.

I can tell you from...

Re: No start no crank

Temporarily remove the upstream oxygen sensor as fdryer suggested and go for a drive. If it runs better, you know it's the catcon. If not, the problem is elsewhere.

When it starts running rough,...

Re: Intermittent Humming Noise

I'm assuming the noise you're referring to is between the :07-:12 second mark.

Quad coupe or sedan?

Are any parts of the front fascia or any of the underlying plastic panels/shields around the...

Re: Possible to open and replace components of BCM?

If you have the ability to confirm exactly which components are bad and the proper tools to replace them I don't see why you couldn't do this. However, I think it's a lot easier said than done.

Re: gas leak

It could be because of the leak, but it's also possible that the pressure regulator inside the fuel filter is failing. That filter looks like it's really old and probably needs to be replaced.

Re: 07 Ion A/C problem: only one vent is cold. Bad recirc door actuator?

All Ions have manual climate controls. The air inlet door actuator is the only actuator in the HVAC system. It's only function is to open and close the fresh air inlet gate. The temperature and vent...

Re: 2005 Saturn ION dies while driving and after its little colder it starts again

I feel that the coil pack is more likely to be bad than the crankshaft position sensor, but the symptoms could stem from either one. Also, check the wiring harness near the oil filter housing for...

No additives are necessary. Just use Toyota T-IV fluid from a Toyota dealership.

Re: 2007 Ion, buying advice please

I'd consider buying it if the price is right, but there's some key information missing.

What's the asking price and approximate odometer reading?
Clean title (not salvage)? Owner has title in...

Re: 05 Ion3 Transmission Issues

We first need to figure out what you really have. The VTi/CVT transmission wasn't installed in any 2005 Ions. The VTi was only installed in 2003-2004 quad coupes and it's use was stopped midway...

Re: How trustworthy is it a junkerd instument panel cluster?

From what I understand, convincing the dealership to reprogram a used cluster is the hard part. :)

What's wrong with the cluster you have now?

Re: Finally the proud owner of a REDLINE

OK, so it sounds like it's pretty much like the No-Lift Shift feature on the HHR SS (LNF/2.0L turbo). I figured that's what it was, but the term "skip shift" doesn't correctly describe what it does...

Re: An SC driver in Raleigh, NC likes to haul ass!

When I had my 2000 SC2, I thought it felt surprisingly solid at 100+ MPH. It was lowered with H&R Sport springs & KYB Struts, an AEM cold air intake, and a Hot Shot header.

I had it over 110 MPH...

Re: Finally the proud owner of a REDLINE

What purpose does the skip shift set up serve? Does the factory setup not let you skip gears when you shift (i.e 1-3, 1-4, etc.)?

Re: Finally the proud owner of a REDLINE

Are you sure it's a 2004? The Competition Package wasn't made available until January 2005. If it's highly modified, the car was probably retro-fitted with the Comp Package equipment. It should have...

Re: Rear deck and adding speaker

Those are child car seat anchors.



That's not a regular stereo speaker. It's a subwoofer. Your car appears to be equipped with the Advanced Audio System (or AAS for short) option which includes...

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Re: SC1 To Ion compatible parts?

Yup. As I said in posts 5 & 7, they only work with third gen S-Series (2000-2002).



None of the 2003 Ion radios will play MP3 files from CD. Only the 2004-2005 radios that have "MP3" printed on...
