USE HEADPHONES if you can, filmed it with my iPhone so not the best audio quality. Compilation of some good sounding accelerations in my 2005 Saturn Ion Redline with the Supercharger screaming in the background. Filmed with both a windshield mount and Miveu-X chest mount. 2.0L Ecotec LSJ Supercharged engine 2.5" pulley, K&N air filter. Also has Sprint lowering springs, Hurst short throw shifter, and K40 dual radar detectors.

2006 Saturn Ion Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2006 Saturn Ion. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2004 Saturn Ion Coupe 2.2L Start Up & Rev
2004 Saturn Ion Coupe
This 1 has a 2.2L 4 Cyl making 140 HP while paired to a CVT.
This is a Coupe but it has 2 small doors that open for rear set passenger. Typical Low Rent Saturn Interior of 2004. Very Creaky & Squeaky plastics everywhere. It is not a small car & can accommodate 4 passengers Rater well, but execution of the car was done poorly.
Ecotec LSJ powered 95 Saturn SC2
My 95 Saturn SC2 with a 2005 Saturn Ion redline engine and trans swap. Current mods are ZZP front mount heat exchanger, ZZP dual pass endplate, ZZP stage 1 pcm, Cobalt addictions shorty header with 3 inch down pipe and 2.5 inch full Exhaust. None of this would have been possible without the help of my best friend Lee Alt. He is the owner of Lees garage and a master fabricator and welder. This guy could build his own space shuttle from scrap parts.
2007 Saturn ION Starting Problems
Since we drove the car off the lot it would periodically not start on demand only to start some time later (usually 15 minutes or so). Because this problem cannot be replicated on demand we have filmed an instance when the car would not start.
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!
