Re: 06 Ion Clutch Pedal Travel Varies

I still have a squeaky clutch pedal, which is stupid and annoying. When everything is working it's a nice car. Unfortunately, keeping everything working at the same time is turning into a real...

Re: 06 Ion Clutch Pedal Travel Varies

OK, Saturn tried bleeding the line. Twice. The problem remained. They finally replaced the clutch master cylinder as a best guess since the problem wasn't a solid failure. After several days it...

Re: 06 Ion Clutch Pedal Travel Varies

Hmmm. I hadn't noticed that but then again I wasn't paying attention! That sounds very likely. Is the vaccum system the same one that services the brakes by any chance?

06 Ion Clutch Pedal Travel Varies

I brought the car back to Saturn 2 weeks ago. DOing at still. Here is the story. Normally there is a good bit of free travel at the end of the clutch pedal throw. You know - about an inch or two...

Can't get 2006 Ion manual trans into gear

The shift lever just wouldn't go into ANY gear. This happened at a light and it took a lot of fiddling around to get it into gear. After driving a block, the trans seemed normal. What the heck is...

Re: Occasional misfire

I took the car in to Saturn yesterday and they scanned it, finding a misfire code. They didn't tell me what the actual code was, but I guess it was a single misfire. The tech could not find a...

Re: Occasional misfire

Really? I thought it was just 3 years 36,000 miles? When did they lengthen the warranty?

Re: Occasional misfire

Is there something I can check with a meter on the coils? What does a good one look like?

Re: Occasional misfire

Would one of those things cause the occasional misfire? It's weird. No, the car is out of warranty (of course).

A while back I had a P0171, and Saturn "recalibrated" the MAS. Whatever that...

Occasional misfire

I have a weird one. 2006 Ion-2 with the 2.2L. I am driving along at maybe 65-70mph. Tach at about 2300. I will get a buck or misfire. No SES lights, it does it once and not again for a few days. ...

Re: UN-Modded :) 2006 Ion-2 throwing P0171

P0171 according to the Autozone printout means;

Definition; Fuel Trim bank one condition

The computer has recognized a rich or lean condition on one engine bank only.

What is an engine bank?...

UN-Modded :) 2006 Ion-2 throwing P0171

Started last night and today the car bucked as I tried to pass on the freeway. Not too happy with that! The car is out of warranty (50K miles, although 2 years old). Had it scanned and P0171 came...

Re: New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

Well, OK - now it's $377 later. The control rod bushings - both - had "collapsed". No idea what that means, other than I needed to pay $377 to the dealer :xeye: So, since it happened pretty...

Re: New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

I got Goodyear Touring. They were reasonably inexpensive and may be part of it. The dealer actually recommended them over more expensive tires.

I am not a car expert by any means.

Re: New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

I did and it seemed as though the problem applied to older models? Pre-2006? I'm just an owner, not much of a mechanic. With the stabilizer bar cause the car to wander? How much will Saturn...

Re: New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

I just went down and played around a bit. I bounced the front end on both the passenger and driver sides. No clunks or noise.

I started the car and had my daughter move the steering wheel the...

Re: New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

Kind of a clunky noise, particularly over bumps. The noise while driving may just be road noise from the new tires - they sound a lot different from the stock tires. The noise seems a bit louder...

New guy with a possible front end problem on his '06 Ion 2!

OK, got a question. I have a 2006 Ion-2 with about 50K miles on it. The car suddenly seems to be unstable whenever I hit small stuff like tar strips or small ridges. And the front end seems noisy....
