Default Re: Replaced timing chain now it's a no crank no start

Another update

So after stating that issue with the airbag light going strobe light and my pwr str message kept popping on with complete loss of power steering I didnt have any time to address the issue and honestly it still hasn't come back since that one day. I've been very nervous and cautious as I dont enjoy "stiff arming" my car on the hiway. So far not one repeat. I also changed my aggresive driving style so my old beast isnt getting so hot with all my revving and fast speeds to abruptly stopping. It seems to have been the amount of heat generated by the engine working so hard to keep up with my heavy foot and thick head lol. So far its been great as always. Thanks for the help once again!
Wish I knew more to help others and not feel like a mooch on this great site.
Saturn Ions are amazing!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

So the car is still working great?

I just replaced the cylinder head on a 2.4L 2008 Vue, identical to my 2007 Ion really. I guess the 2.2L head on your 2006 Ion is about the same also.

It is interesting work, very easy to forget one step.

I am glad that you did the work and I thank you for the right-up.

At the moment no it's not. I have a p0300 random misfire code. Replaced air filter, spark plugs, coil pack, icm, fuel filter, fuel pump and still cant the beast to go more than 20kms an hour. I have a seperate thread going for that issue in the Ion tech category.

That sounds like a big job that an amateur like myself would mess up lol. Great job tho love seeing/reading about others success on Saturns.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
