Saturn Ion key ignition stuck, part 1. Repair part 2 link below
Please Deactivate Adblock, because it removes on screen instructions to this part 1. A more important part 2 was added ( How to fix it permanently) just click on the following link http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo 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. ( this switch will also causes the doors to lock inadvertenly if you climb out of the car and leave it running on its own). On this video, watch How to MANUALLY OVERIDE IGNITION SWITCH SOLENOID and troubleshooting, in my case , it lead to the automatic transmission SHIFTER PARK MICROSWITCH, it failed frequently. As I got closer to the microswitch, loosing daylight , 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 but a permanent fix is required , it is best to replace it. So, watch part 2 you will see better how to fix it. http://youtu.be/gSXk5LQDflo ( new update 23dec 2014, I just received a GM RECALL for this exact problem)

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!

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





How to change the oil in a saturn.
* * * PLEASE READ * * * In this video I show how to drain and refill the engine oil as well as replace the engine oil filter. The car in the video is a 2007 ion with a 2.2L inline 4-cylinder engine. The engine holds 5 quarts of oil. The owners manual recommends a torque of no more than 18ft.-lbs to hold the filter in place. The owners manual also says to reset the oil life meter after an oil change by first turning the key to the on position. Then, press the button on the trip meter until it reads 'oil life'. Hold the button until it beeps 5 times. That should reset it. I am not responsible for anything. For more visit krkvideos.mezoka.com

Regular Car Reviews: 2000 Saturn L-Series
Take me back to 1999's cherry topping. The year 2000 was perfect. The music was payola-fueled and I had a 56k PCI modem. The Saturn L-Series was the last bare-palmed handy before it was time to go to work forever. Thank you to powerofktulu for bringing his Saturn wagon out on a beautiful Sunday. I hope your indie film goes well. Here is his youtube page. http://www.youtube.com/user/powerofktulu Take me back to the 90's. I want to wait thirty minuets to burn a cd. I want to wait for mom and dad to go to sleep so I can go online without tying up the phone. My Game Gear doesn't work anymore.





Saturn SL2 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement (DOHC)
This is a long one, Sorry, but it pretty much goes through the step by step and shows some of my mistakes so you don't make them. Also, verify that the gasket fits. If you have the time then I would suggest bringing the valve cover in with you(assuming you bought it from a local parts store) and make sure it fits before leaving. I must have gotten one from a bad batch because the first one was too big. You will see that in the video. The second try was the right(ish) one. apparently it is a known problem that the molding process is incorrect for these gaskets but luckily they are rubber so you can just remold it to fit. Also a word of caution: at some point you may see me use carburetor cleaner on the plastic valve cover. DO NOT use carburetor cleaner on the plastic. The main ingredient is Acetone(which I also use to clean) and it has the ability to melt the plastic. Use another solvent that is friendly to plastics like mineral spirits. Good Luck and Hope this helps you save some money. Spent about $60 total doing this in tools and parts. Note: I am not a mechanic, these videos are meant to be for informational purposes only. Should you follow the steps shown you do so at your own risk.
