Re: H&R Sport springs

I have the FE5 swap frankensteined with Cobalt top hats mixed with the 04 Ion mount, took some work, but it looks great and handles even better

Re: Front Brakes Change

Grease the sliders of the pads as well as the backs for smooth, silent operation

Hmm....I found 155lb/ft or 1860in/lb for the studs, oh well. I'll post the how to now:

Front Brakes Change

Looking for torque specs on the front wheel studs, and the large nut on the axle for the front rotors. Search function is down but I would like to post a step-by-step-thread with pictures and specs...

Re: 2006 Ion 2.2

Maybe it's just the video but it sounds like a misfire. Maybe also check your exhaust manifold gasket and all exhaust gaskets beyond that.

Re: replace my 2004 ion radio for at 2006 ion radio

Basically impossible unless you want to swap out the dash. Best bet just go for an aftermarket double DIN. So much easier, so much better.

Re: No power to a 07 ion

Short inside the head unit itself? Maybe try a junkyard stereo and see if it does anything when hooked up

Re: 03 Ion-3 Rattling While Driving

Just making sure...you are pressing the concave button of the cruise control buttons? The cruise control signals (if they haven't worn off) aren't exactly self-explanatory...just checking :P

Re: 2007 Ion - Cylinder Head Replacement (pictures)

True, but also has a nice aesthetic touch with shiny parts on newly painted ones, really completes the look!

Re: cobalt SS spoiler on ion

Very much so! To each their own, but yeah I've definitely liked my SRI over the maintenance pain a CAI would be, and all things considered a CAI doesn't give enough of a benefit in these cars to...

Re: cobalt SS spoiler on ion

Just a tip about a CAI on our cars: it runs through the hole in the fender and anytime you want to take off and clean the filter the whole front end has to be taken off, just making sure you knew...

Re: Looking for a 2003 Saturn ion transmission-cvt

Check the threads on here about the CVT->auto transmission swap. Much has been discussed about the CVT and it's as good as junk and replacing it with another CVT will just lead to headaches again...

Re: cobalt SS spoiler on ion

Everything is controlled by the BCM, and you'd have to swap transmissions, wiring harnesses, all sorts of crazy stuff. It's been hashed over several times by hopefuls with 03-04's but I believe only...

Re: New to the forum, new to saturn! Trying to diagnose brake sound

You can, the friction should scrape the rust off, but if after about a week of routine driving and braking the feeling doesn't go away, your rotors are warped

Re: 2007 Ion - Cylinder Head Replacement (pictures)

Are all the components of the head steel/aluminum? The oil has stained some parts a really pretty brass color, I'm diggin it :)

Re: New to the forum, new to saturn! Trying to diagnose brake sound

You definitely won't be able to eyeball a warped rotor, especially at the low level of vibration you're feeling. Most likely a very slightly warped rotor, but your best bet is a new set of rotors AND...

Re: cobalt SS spoiler on ion

Unfortunately a supercharger or turbocharger on an 03-04 would be prohibitively expensive to do, 05+ cars can be done because they can be tuned for it, but 03-04 the amount of things that would have...

For as long as you have tires (50+K mi) why get a set that aren't suited for the car and make it run incorrectly? A deal for however much it is better be nearly free to be making a change in your car...
