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.

repair like the one seen in this video please use the proper safety
equipment, take your time and do the job right.
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 Ion Redline @ Driftwater 6/5/11, part II
Driftwater 6/5/11 Moyock, NC
These are my second set of runs after the rain stopped and the track
started to dry off.
2004 Saturn Ion Redline making ~ 260hp, 240 lb-ft on 18 lbs of Boost and supporting mods. Suspension is
stock, brakes are Hawk HP pads and front cross drilled and slotted rotors,
tires are Kelly HP Fierce in front (came with recently acquired track
wheels) and Nitto Neogens in the rear.
The track conditions improved greatly throughout the day so look for my
other videos which are much more consistent and faster.

waste spark ignition system. The engine that is in this Saturn Ion is a
Chevy 2.2L Ecotec and is the same engine used in the Chevy Cavalier.

Instrument Cluster Light and Domelight Replacement/ LED Conversion on 98 Saturn SL2
This video was a fun one to do. You can use this as a video on replacing
the standard bulb that goes into the socket, or you can replace them with
LED's! Recently ran across a few threads on a popular forum for Saturns
about putting in LED's. Thought this was a good idea. I got my bulbs from
superbrightleds.com. Below are the part numbers:
74-CWHP3 Mini Wedge Base - for the instrument cluster
RL4410-CWHP9 Rigid Loop Festoon - Domelight
I kind of skipped over the removal because there was another video already
made. Props to Richpin06a for a great instructional that helped me. link
