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!

Concept S-Class Coupé: An outlook on the new top-of-the-line model -
Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury
Traditionally the top of the Mercedes-Benz product range is occupied by the
grand coupé. With the Concept S-Class Coupé the company will provide a
concrete vision of the next model generation at the International Motor
Show (IAA) in Frankfurt: with its gorgeous appearance and self-assured
style it embodies the design philosophy of sensual clarity. In the interior
with its spectacular architecture and truly exclusive appointments the
four-seater defines the state of the art of modern luxury.
"The new S-Class Saloon was received enthusiastically in the market and
perfectly lives up to its role as a representative of the power of
innovation of Mercedes-Benz", says Dr Joachim Schmidt, Member of the
Management Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales & Marketing. "On the S-Class
Coupé as the traditional top of our product range the designers take
advantage of their additional freedom and thus create an automotive
Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design at Daimler AG, adds: "The Concept
S‑Class Coupé combines tradition and emotion, and is a symbol for the
embodiment of our design style of sensual clarity. The perfected design
with self-assured style and the highly exclusive appointments make the
coupé a true design icon and an expression of modern luxury".
Design: sensual clarity at its most beguiling
Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury -- this was the focus for
the designers, and is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. The aim is to
create clear contours and smooth surfaces that stage high tech while
exuding emotional appeal. The sensual clarity is reflected in the core
design values of tradition, emotion and progressivism. These are the
guiding star, and are accentuated differently depending on the model.
Mercedes-Benz creates a bridge between modernity and the avant-garde,
between tradition and progressivism. Each model series has an assigned role
and a very specific character, depending on the attributes on which the
design focusses. And yet a Mercedes-Benz is always recognisable as a
Mercedes-Benz. Because in addition to incorporating new stylistic
developments, and in the interests of keeping tradition alive, the
designers draw from a gene-pool of styling features typical of the brand.
"Design needs the sublime! Because design is the best brand ambassador. At
the centre of our work is sensual clarity as an expression of modern
luxury, because this is precisely what gets to the heart of our brand
philosophy -- the bipolarity of intelligence and emotion", says Wagener.
The exterior: flowing profile of perfect proportions
The flowing profile of the Concept S-Class Coupé embodies sensual clarity
in a modern way. It is characterised by typical rear-wheel drive
proportions, which are emphasised by the Mercedes-typical signature, the
dropping line. The long bonnet with distinctive lines and powerdomes, the
cowering greenhouse with high beltline, the accentuated wheel arches as
well as the 21-inch wheels (tyres at front 265/35 R 21, at rear 295/35 R
21) and the visually broad rear substantiate the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé as a masterpiece of automotive refinement. With a wheelbase
of 2945 mm the coupé measures 5050 mm in length, 1958 mm in width and 1409
mm in height.
Positively arched surfaces give the Concept S-Class Coupé a sensual
character. The sculpted appearance lends it classic elegance that forms a
perfect symbiosis with the modern-progressive design idiom.
The view from the side is marked by the dropping line in keeping with the
emotional character of the vehicle. It underscores the brand-typical
proportions like a signature. The lines are deliberately reduced to the
basics. This creates a timeless clarity.
The creative interaction of various design elements lend the Concept
S-Class Coupé a superior and self-assured front: at the centre of the
vehicle front is the three-dimensional and further evolved diamond radiator
grille, whose structure is defined in this case by rectangular, dark
chrome-plated elements. It bears the central Mercedes star and one blade.

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 0-60 MPH Drive & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Think of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe as a
Korean Muscle car. It has the classic American muscle car layout. A big
and powerful engine in the front that powers the rear wheels. But unlike
American muscle cars of old, the new 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe cam also
go around a corner. In fact the Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a razor blade on
the track...carving corners and tearing up the race track. In another fun
and informative TFLcar review, we not only see how fast the 2013 Hyundai
Genesis Coupe is from 0-60 MPH at a mile above sea level, but we also rate
the car on the TFL recommendation scale of Buy it, Lease it, Rent it or
