I have a 2006 Saturn Ion...the check engine light comes on and off from time to time. It does it pretty regularly, but I can't tell any difference in the car's operation. The check engine light came on one day and I had AutoZone hook it up to find the problem. Yet, it read no faulty codes. Does anyone have any diagnosis and/or solutions?


You have an intermitten problem, and 10 to one it's in the evap emissions system. With the light coming on and off the computor doesn't have time to store a code. When the light comes on and stays on, then go back to autozone and get the code. ... 2006 Saturn ION

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion that I just changed the Spark Plugs with E plugs. Now the check engine light has came on. I took it to Auto Zone and the codes came up P0340/P0341. Its not running bad but when I start it over cranks. Anything I can check myself before taking it in?

You might need a major tune-up...and all the oil changes...change the transmission and check if that works...if after doing everything that i told you doesn't work...then you might have a transmission problem!so good luc ... Saturn Ion

I was told to have my oil changed every 3000 miles. Then I read on the internet you can wait almost 10000 miles before you get your oil changed. I am now 7000 miles over. This morning my car would not start, so I thought it needed more oil. Put a liter of oil in it. Then turned the car on, it started to knock and the check engine light came on. Did I ruin my 2006 Saturn ION 2's engine?


Well, longer oil change intervals all insist on enough oil. you cannot just keep going without checking it ROUTINELY.\012I am not sure about the "thought I needed more oil" either it measured low or it did not....However, situations like you de ... 2006 Saturn ION

I have a 2007 Saturn Ion-2. The engine light came on last week. The most noticable driving symptom is that when you start the car, it revs up to anywhere from 1500-3000 rpm before coming down to an idle. When driving and shifting - it's a 5 speed - when you come off the accelerator, and push in the clutch, the engine rpm usually increases, and if you leave the clutch in and coast, the rpm may or may not come back down. Also, the cruise control does not work. I had the codes checked yesterday


For P0102 replace MAF 'cos what cause the maf to fail is, over the year \012the oil contaminate the mass air sensor. THere is psb for the v-6, clean the oil \012separator hose, and replace maf. and make sure you don't add more than 4.3L of \012 ... 2007 Saturn ION-2 Quad Coupe

I have a 2007 Saturn ION, been wonderful so far, I have a little over 90,000 mi on it, now my "check engine" light appears then disappears, I'm getting the p0300 error, something about it misfiring, It idles poorly and when the "check engine" light is lit up, it tends to "kick" as I accelerate, but seems to run well when the "engine" light is NOT lit up, any "idears"


I've had the same problem before. Autozone had a code reader and said that it was/had misfired on cylinder #3, which will trigger the check engine light. Start with the cheapest and easiest fix first, install new spark plugs. If that works, great! ... 2007 Saturn ION-2 Quad Coupe

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion 2. My check engine light is on whit codes P0171 and P0106. My car is running rough, and likes to stall at lights, stop signs, traffic jams etc. (anytime it's idling). There is an audible hissing sound coming from the engine, leading me to believe that there is a vacuum leak. I can not find a leak and I don't have any money to take this to the dealer or a shop. Anyone know alikely spot to check for a vacuum leak?


Remove the housing that covers the engine block and look behind the engine block, up against the firewall towards the bottom of the block there are some vaccum hoses(this is easier to get too if the car is up in the air, or lifted on jack stands) get ... 2006 Saturn ION

My 2002 Isuzu Troopers Check Engine light and Reduced power light came on and the engine ran very slow and sluggish. Checked the next day and check engine light came on and Reduced power light was no longer there. Had computor diagnoses and codes P1295 and P1515 showed up. After computor check, check engine light went off and I've had no more problems, but don't trust it to drive very far. What would be the most ovious problem?


1295 simply indicates that you were in "get you home" mode. 1515 has to do with throttle position sensor fault. Since it was intermittant I'd check for chafed or broken wiring and loose connections ... 2002 Isuzu Trooper

My check engine light came on. I had it checked with a scanner. I was told the code came up that it was the gas cap is not sealing and to buy a new gas cap. I did. The check engine light came back on two weeks later. Had it checked again and was told the same thing. I then asked a friend who is a mechanic, he said the problem was thr fuel purging sensor in the gas tank. To fix it I had to remove the fuel tank, or the just ignore the check engine light.


Best not to ignore the check engine light because it also can indicate a serious running problem just as it is indicating a pollution problem now. I don't trust folks that have 'snap' answers for a given problem without any kind of testing (the fuel ... 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country with almost 100,000 miles. The check engine light came on about 2 months ago and the code said the O2 sensors needed to be replaced. About a month later, the check engine light came on and the code said the catalytic converter needed to be replaced. Now a month later again, the check engine light came on, the exhaust smells rotten, we are getting about 1/2 the miles per gallon and the code says to check the Mass Air Flow Sensor. Does this all make sense?


There are no codes that say replace O2 sensors,or remove converter,Thats just somebody's guessing,When it says O2 sensor that tells the mechanic to look for trouble in that area,wiring or faulty readings,And there are four O2 sensors. ... 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

Thank you for your suggestions and I did find out that the check engine light is on. I don't know if my daughter's 2004 4-door Saturn Ion is a lemon are what. Since the engine light is on ; in addition to the car slowing down and coming to a stop- waiting 5 -15 minutes and the car starts up again only to do the same process over again: any other suggestion of what the issue may be and what's my best option to take?
