Re: Will a 2005 Ion engine fit in a 2004 Ion?

Great you're going for the save instead of scrapping it. So much waste out there.

My 05 still runs and looks like a late model.

Re: Will a 2005 Ion engine fit in a 2004 Ion?

What about the five speed automatic transmission ? Won't an adapter or something be needed for the engine to fit unless it's a manual ?

Re: 22 years!

Oh yeah, the 95 Saturn SL1 in 05 [116,000 miles, and the reason for the ION] I bought and gave to my brother about 10 years ago just returned from a trip to NC from Tucson with nearly 200,000 miles...

Re: Engine and Transmission Mounts

Thanks. It sounds about right. My 86 Olds Calais does exactly the same and has done it before so it's recognizable. Putting it in neutral at a stop light smooths everything out. Getting them done...

Re: Engine and Transmission Mounts

How many miles on your car ? Are you getting vibrations while stopped at a light or at any other time ? Any odd noises ?

Where is the sagging ? Any evidence provided ?

Did you have any...

Re: 2000 LS1 Dilemma

Ha! Just did the same thing to an 86 Olds Calais my brother gave me last year [I first bought it in 94 with 21,000 miles on it].

Took it on a trip to and from Salt Lake City this month. It turned...

Re: 06 Ion Roof Trim Molding Strip Replacement

If you are referring to the roof rails, no, they are not. They use a star like screw driver, one that comes in many computer tool kits.

Open the door. Above your head you can see the screws and...

Re: My 05 quad just hit 300k, want to keep running good!

Had to replace the entire filler neck assembly for the same problem. New gas cap [AC Delco] made the light go away for awhile, but it came back.

Only real problem I have had in 14 years. Well that...

Re: How good are 5 speed automatic transmission in 2004 Saturn ION

They have been used in many Toyotas as it is, IIRC a subsidiary of that company and providers of automatics for other car manufacturers as well.

Re: Your Transmission story

What have you been told already? Prices? New, used, rebuilt or
remanufactured [there's a difference] ? That would be very interesting for you to relate.

Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

Exactly. Rolling curiosity.

Part of the reason I scored the "blue bubble roof rails and interior trim for my ION.

Re: Will Saturns be classic cars?

There will always be a following.

There are still collectors of Studebakers, AMCs, Hudsons and Nashes. Even Yugos and Trabants have their fans.

Re: LED Headlights in Ion Housing

So funny. I just replaced my headlight units with the same units as you got from Amazon.

I used Sylvania Xtravision.

And I like the looks better, the headlight buckets are much better...

Re: Adding side curtain airbags to 2007 Ion 3

Re: clank in motor

I don't know, but I wouldn't drive it until it's diagnosed. It may be the timing chain from your description of the sound.

Re: 2004 ION 5 Speed Automatic

Used by other manufacturers as well.

Switched to GM 4 speed auto in 05 which worked a lot better.

Many complained about "shift flare" and feel. Many were re-programmed.

Other than that, it's...
