Default P0351 07 Ion 2.2l

Car was running fine then got up to go to work and it wouldn't stay running. It starts and runs for a few seconds and dies. Randomly starts and runs fine for a few minutes. I can't find any chaffing or corrosion on the wires. Changed the coil but still getting P0351

Can you list background history of this car? Mileage, maintenance performed parts replaced, modifications done to electronics, engine, xmission, suspension? More info helps paint a picture for anyone not standing next to your car with zero perspective of your situation.

Replacing parts is easy. Figuring out parts replacement didn't fix the problem is a little more difficult.

I've only had it a couple of months so I don't know how well it's been maintained. It has 164,000 miles was wrecked in the front but no frame damage radiator was busted and the front bumper was torn off. There is water intrusion in the trunk from the seal being dry rotted. No corrosion that I can see. I drove the car on a 3 hour drive the day before it started acting up but didn't have any problems. I am now getting P0352, P0353, and P0354. I replaced the battery when I bought the car. It starts fine when it's cool outside but the hotter it is the worse it seems to run.

Here's an explanation from a search for P0351; P0351 is a generic OBD II trouble code, which means that it means the same thing for the Saturn Ion as it would any other vehicle. It indicates that ignition coil A is malfunctioning. It is typically caused by a bad coil pack or wiring harness issue, although there can be other causes as well.
