Re: Better braking??

Like goaliemo already stated, it's not worth the work to convert them. I'd just install new shoes, drums, & hardware & properly adjust them once. At that point, the new rear brakes will probably...

Re: Better braking??

There's no need to do a brake upgrade. Any good quality brake parts will work fine. The Ion's brakes are more than adequate for the car. You just need to make sure everything is in good working...

Re: 06 Saturn Ion 3 Sunroof Track Rear Guide Broken

The parts were never available separately. Surprisingly, the assembly (p/n 15912442 - same for all 2003-2007 Ions) is still available. You might get one cheaper from a junkyard, but it's somewhat of...

Re: 2004 Saturn Ion 2.2 constant p0442 code

It's not likely a false positive. Either you have a leak that hasn't been found yet or one of the parts is faulty.

The only part I don't see in your list is the fuel tank pressure sensor, which is...

Re: Manual Trans "Push-start" question

FWIW I recall my 2007 Ion (2.2L) being very difficult to push start when I had it. I only tried a few times, but I could only get it to pop off once at my parents' place which had a long hill to let...

Re: Ion battery died and now no radio

After scouring through my attachments on this forum, I found a TSB that I uploaded on 7/21/2009 (link here (www.saturnfans.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=15564&d=1248215513)) which states the...

Re: Ion battery died and now no radio

As I already said before, these radios can't be locked because they don't have any anti-theft measures built into them (unlike the older ones that do). I'm sure the message saying it will come locked...

Re: Ion battery died and now no radio

XM Theftlock is only applicable to the external XM satellite radio tuner (if equipped, it was optional) which communicates with the BCM. These radios actually don't have any anti-theft measures built...

Re: Ion battery died and now no radio

The BCM and interior fuse panel are one in the same part. The radio's switched +12V power is sourced from output of the ACC relay before it is routed through the Radio (ACC) fuse. That relay is...

Re: 2005 Saturn Ion Moonroof

Unfortunately, if the parts have been discontinued your only option is to buy used parts off ebay or from a junkyard. The good news is that these motors don't fail very often and the Chevrolet Cobalt...

Re: Ion battery died and now no radio

Check your other accessories. Is there anything else that doesn't work? I'm just trying to rule out a larger fuse upstream from the radio fuse. The radio may have just went bad, but they're generally...

Re: 2001 L200 Audio Issues

That particular radio is a POS, but it's probably not the source of your problem. The best factory radio IMO is the double-din CD/Tape unit. Any radio from any 2000-2003 Saturn would be a direct plug...

Re: Wheel Bearing Repair Cost Range?

You're reviving a 10-year old thread so I wouldn't expect a response.

To answer your question, the SKF is a better option than a Timken or Moog bearing IMO. I wouldn't go as far as to say a...

Re: Flange leak

The flex pipes often fail on the Ion/Cobalt/G5/HHR. Many exhaust companies make replacements specifically because of this. The exhaust pipe needs to be cut and welded on the downstream side to...

Re: Coolant Temp Sensor

If the temp gauge works, the coolant temp sensor is fine. Does the engine run fine until it's warmed up? Have you already replaced both oxygen sensors?

Re: 2007 ion overheating

A lot of unanswered questions...

Which engine does your car have? A 2.6L wasn't an option for the Ion.
How do you know the engine is actually overheating?
What does the temp gauge say?
Are you...

Re: What resistor for power UNlock wire to aftermarket alarm?

The resistor doesn't have to be huge. The electrical load of the power locks doesn't go through the switch like in older vehicles. It's literally just a switch that tells the BCM when the lock/unlock...

Re: What resistor for power UNlock wire to aftermarket alarm?

The wiring diagram indicates a 1.5K ohm resistor is used on the unlock side of the circuit.

Re: 2006 ION cannister vent solenoid..P0449

Need more info for the correct diagram.

Which engine does your Ion have? Does it have federal (NT7) or California emissions (NU1)? If you're unsure what emissions your car has, look at the option...

Yes, EVAP system checks for leaks as fdryer explained.
