Re: I give up!

When do you hear this thumping noise? How often do you hear it? What makes you say that it is from the suspension? Also, when you replaced the transmission fluid, what type of fluid did you use?

Re: 2004 Ion-3 Won't Start

Put a brand new air filter in, and the check engine light cleared itself. It might have to do with the fact that the old filter was about 10-12 months old, and got left out in the elements,...
