Re: 06 saturn hard to start

Yes, that's right. Although, IIRC the switch isn't very easy to access because it's fairly high up in the dash. There are two clutch switches on 2005-2007 Ions. The lower one disengages cruise...

Re: 06 saturn hard to start

The clutch switch is probably out of adjustment. The picture fdryer posted is also applicable to 2006-2007 Ions.

Re: Battery draining

I can't tell you how to get rid of the smell. I would try opening all the doors and the trunk lid for a few hours. The original battery would have had some small tubes connected to the acid caps for...

Re: Battery draining

To me it looks like the parts guy didn't know what he was doing. The ammeter clamp wasn't hooked up for the alternator test (picture on the left) because there is no amperage reading.

The battery...

Re: Ok to remove transmission fill plug 2006 awd 3.5 v6 vue?

This is not applicable to your transmission.

This is an advisory for the Aisin AF33-5 transmission used in the 2002-2003 Vue (V6). There is a big hex head bolt on top that keeps the 3rd gear band...

Re: Battery draining

The battery must be tested with a direct connection because of the sustained electrical load used during the test. Any weak connections could also compromise the accuracy of the test.

You can test...

Re: Airbag light

I don't know if I'd trust that (sarcasm intended). It shows the battery under the hood. The battery is in the trunk of all Ions. You'd think GM would get the details right, but unfortunately I...

Re: Airbag light

At the very least, I'd look for broken wires in the door jambs before taking the car somewhere to have it looked at.

I recently purchased the Zurich ZR13 from Harbor Freight a few months ago, and...

Re: Airbag light

I never said that airbag systems were simple. You said there was no such thing as a common airbag problem. I disagreed with this, and provided a good example.

However, troubleshooting an airbag...

Re: Airbag light

I disagree with this. A great example is the passenger presence sensor in the front passenger seat cushion.

GM in particular has used these in virtually all models since 2006. GM has only issued...

Re: 2005 Saturn Ion Redline

The sunroof leaking makes sense with regard to the carpet. I can relate to this because the sunroof drains were badly plugged in my old 2003 Ion when I bought it back in 2013. The carpet got soaking...

It doesn't look too bad, but 220,000 miles is a lot - especially for a Red Line. KBB says it might be worth closer to $4000...

I realized that we really didn't address your real issue.

Is the check engine light on?

If so, have you had it scanned for codes?

Re: 07 ion transmission fluid check

Only 2003-2004 Sedans and some late production 2004 Quad Coupes have the Aisin AF23 5-speed auto. This transaxle has a drain plug and a dipstick.

Re: charcoal canister

The part you have your hand on in that picture looks like it doesn't belong there. I don't see anything resembling it in any Cobalt or Ion parts diagrams I've looked at. It looks like an EVAP service...

Re: 03 Ion P0032 & P0135

Before you get a new fuse box, unplug the connectors at the ECM and fuse box to inspect them if you haven't done so already.

You can also take apart the fuse box and inspect it. This is much...

Re: Finding a decent Saturn is getting harder . It's seems

The Sebring JXi convertible is the 1995-2000 style that had the Mitsubishi 6G73 2.5L V6 (https://www.allpar.com/mopar/25V6.html). It didn't ever get the Chrysler 2.7L. Perhaps your female friend had...

Was the oxygen sensor you changed mounted in the exhaust manifold? That is the upstream sensor. I think you already knew this, but couldn't say beyond a reasonable doubt.

Re: New oil, old filter, can I replace the filter if there's oil in the car?

Yes, you can replace the filter after changing the oil. You'll lose very little oil - especially if you let the engine sit for a while beforehand.
