Re: Sometimes it hates me other times it doesn't

Actually, this should be covered by the standard warranty. I'm not sure if you bought the car used or new but the warranty is fully transferrable and you shouldn't have to pay a penny on this issue....

Re: What do you think of my gauges?

Just had to bump this thread. Both BryanK and crazycage's setup looks really cool. I've been wondering how this could be done. Thanks for the ideas!:D

Re: Sometimes it hates me other times it doesn't

Does the odomoter/status display show "Service Engine" on it and the "Car Lock" icon stays lit? If so, it'll probably be your ignition switch. It started happening to me again after it had gone away....

Re: ion redline mods?

Apart from powertrain mods, there's also suspension mods. Like BWoody's stuff. You can go to their site: http://www.bwoodyperformance.com/. I just got their traction bars and they got rid of the...

Re: Red Line any Issues??

Definitely, I'd have him check out the redlineforums. It's where I've gotten most of my info about this car. I have an '04 RL with 18k miles on it and so far so good. I love driving this car.

I...

Re: New to the ION

Glad to hear there's another happy Ion owner. Welcome!

About your trunk release, before checking the fuse, check that the trunk child safety release is not engaged. There's a switch by the safety...

Re: Rough idle.

I'm definitely a novice and I'm pretty sure you won't damage the car in anyway byt doing this. Just be careful not to let anything get inside of the throttle body. You can clean it without taking it...

Re: Saturn Ion Overheating problem

I'd check that the thermostat isn't stuck first.

Re: Rough idle.

Try cleaning the throttle body with some throttle body cleaner also make sure the IAT sensor that's on the CAI is not dirty. That can be cleaned with those electrical cleaners. Checking your plugs...

Re: How do you change the air filter?

Man, I did this this past weekend. Like mytdawg said, it was a pain to take out. I unfastened the engine breather hose from the elbow and then took out the elbow. Then I removed the screws from the...

Re: Low Fuel Warning

On another note about this low fuel warning. I hate the fact that if I park the car on a street that is not built flat and have probably around 3 gallons of fuel left which has shifted to one side of...

Re: Power steering problem

I'd suggest checking your power steering fuse. Might've blown out.

Re: Hard Shifting With 2003 Automatic

Does it happen when you put it into "I" or lower as well? I used to drive around town on the Intermediate setting and never experienced the flare. I would shift into Drive only when travelling on the...

Re: Astra Redline

I like the looks. I think the possibility of them slapping on the current Turbo'ed Ecotec is good. I've heard some here don't like GM bringing in the Opel's down here. I think it's a good thing.

Re: so im trying to find an RL

Definitely, these engines were built for taking beatings so I agree with Super. An RL with less than 20k should be ok! Just get the facts you need from the dealer as far as the service logs. Make...

Re: 2007 Saturn Vue - Now available

I agree, close mindedness has gotten the best of some. All I can say is that I'm pretty sure that the bigwigs in GM have been scrutinizing these same thoughts brought up here to which we have no...

Re: 2007 Saturn Vue - Now available

Actually if this were true and there was lag, I don't think they would be putting electronic throttle control on performance engines such as the Ion Redline's LSJ engine don't you think or any other...

Re: 06RedLine repair manual

So far I've seen none. The closest to a manual would be the info found on LSJowners.com and insight from people on redlineforums.com.

Re: so im trying to find an RL

I 2nd that! I bought my '04 this past Feb and so far *knocks on wood* I'd say it was a good buy. It had low miles (10k) and looked new, plus since it was cheap enough I got the Saturn Extended...

Re: so im trying to find an RL

It does seem odd that a sales guy would state that 07 RL's don't exist. Either they are not well informed, which would've made me go to another dealer instead, or they did in fact lie. And if they...

Re: so im trying to find an RL

That sucks.

If you do end up getting an RL check out redlineforums.com if you haven't already done so. You'll find tons of info and help on that site.

Re: Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

I can go on and on on this. I'm not a perfect driver either but come on. I feel like I'm dodging bullets everyday with drivers like these.
