2004 Saturn Ion Redline vs 2006 Chevy Cobalt SS
My brothers 2006 cobalt SS vs my 2004 ion redline. The redline has intake
and just an aftermarket muffler & a bad clutch, other then that it's all
stock, the redline also has a full tank of gas, and the cobalts is almost
empty! The cobalt has intake, new clutch, no cats, and 3 inch straight
pipe! Both cars only have drivers. 50 mph in 3rd gear on both cars! The
only reason we did that Is cause the ion redline has a bad clutch, and if
we were in 1st or 2nd gear the ion will loose instantly, so 3rd gear was
the way to go! Both cars had stock Supercharger pulleys. Both running at 91 octane.

Stock Ion Redline to Stage 3 Ion Redline
I did a little side by side comparison of a video from my stock ion redline
20-60 acceleration time. Then I got stage 3... Had a really shitty tune and
now I got her tuned by Ryan at Flatline Performance! Pulls harder than ever
Saturn Ion key ignition stuck wont come out (solved) manual overide & troubleshoot
Deactivate Adblock to allow on screen instructions. I added a part 2 ( a
better view how to fix it ) click on the following link
The problem was on a 2005 saturn ion with automatic transmission. The key
refuse to return to OFF position and to come out of ignition slot .
Ignition only accept ACC ON START. Watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION
SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case ,lead to the automatic
transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it fails frequently. As I got
closer to the microswitch, daylight was running away , my cam focus was
acting out the shifter is totally black making it hard to shoot I had to
speed up and get it done. WATCH CLOSELY HOW I SLIGHTLY BEND THE MICROSWITCH
LEVER TO GIVE IT MORE STRENGHT, i used a needle nose plier . The
microswitch is held in place by a removable plastic clip ( it's got a green
line painted onto it as you can see on the still image just prior to click
on the play icon ) I removed with a small flat tip screwdriver pushing from
the Inside out , no need to unclip top shifter panel. So after all this, I
went for a test ride, the problem disappeared, yes! it works, so far so
good. ( in my case the problem was the microswitch & its lever Inside the
consol shifter assembly ). http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo
My Custom 2003 Saturn Ion Las Vegas style air brush paint job (unique just one in the world!!!)
I bought this car in August 2012. For many years it was a show room car in
some Las Vegas casinos it is why when I bought it it had just 7450 ml on
Я купил эту машину в августе 2012 года на
момент покупки на спидометре было только
7450 миль потому, что на протяжении многих
лет эта машина стояла как шоу кар в одном
из казино Лас Вегаса. Это уникальная
машина одна в своём роде.

Vid of my supercharged 2.2L Ion sedan. Ignore the couple of bounces off
the rev limiter. I hadn't adjusted my shift light for my new redline and
it was throwing me off lol.

The car just had an oil change, engine flush, fresh brake fluid, and an

2003 Saturn Ion that won't start in cold weather
Documenting my attempt to use a fix I found on the internet to resolve an
issue that plagues 2003-2004 Saturn Ions. The models in this year can have
difficulty starting in cold weather. At first it was pretty sporadic for
me but this year it was almost constant.
In the video I replace the ignition switch which actually ended up
resolving my problem. I guess there is a lubricant in this switch that
SHOULDN'T harden in cold weather but the ones that shipped in the cars of
these years do. Total cost $29.99 and about 30 minutes of time.
The specific symptoms you will see with this issue are (usually in cold
weather) you will try to start the car and it might crank a couple times
but then die. When you try to start it again you will hear a short fire
but then it stops. This is because the security system has kicked in and
shut off fuel to the vehicle for 10 minutes. After you wait 10 minutes you
can try to start it again. This cycle can happen multiple times (at its
worst I would have to go almost an hour of doing this).
Once you replace the part you may have to reset the security (passlock).
This is done by turning the key to start (but it won't) and then leaving it
in the run position until the lock light in the dash quits blinking (about
10 minutes). You then do this again (again waiting 10 minutes) and finally
a THIRD time (waiting another 10 minutes). After the third attempt you
turn the key to OFF and wait 30 seconds (this waiting is important I am
told!). It should then fire up.
Be sure to watch this on the Web if you can as I have a lot of in-video
comments to help!
Saturn Idle problem.mov
In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and
clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a
excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was
not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind
the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a
problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on
the same battery. Thanks for all the comments!
This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not
start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to
start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to
"fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking
of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :)
Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I
first heard about this solution.
Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed
it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while
the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started
fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this
week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running,
turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
