If you have to ask it's way over your head. Rod bearings are about as deep into an engine as it gets. Best bet is to pull the engine and take it to a machine shop.

SOURCE: replacement of wheel bearing 2004 saturn ion

Put the car's front on jackstands(front suspension hanging down) and chock the rear wheels.Remove the tire/wheel.Remove the bolt/nut for the lower balljoint.Remove the cotter pin on the large spindle nut.Remove the nut(you'll need a 1/2 or larger impact gun with the correct impact socket).Dislodge the ball joint from the knuckle(a large punch rapped on the sides of the knuckle hole will help to break it loose).Lower the control arm and pull the knuckle outward(the axle shaft should now slide out).Now you should be able to remove the bolts that retain the bearing assembly.Reassemble in reverse order,thread locking compound on the bolts for the bearing is probably a good idea.

How hard is it to replace heater core in 2005 Saturn ion


Not fun, that is for sure. If you cannot get to the core through the area behind the glove box, it will be a bear of a job.

I have a 2003 Saturn Ion with an Ecotec 2.2 engine. i had a loss of power when trying to accelerate. Now it is spitting and sputtering and will not hardly move.


You checked for OBD Codes? What are they?
Did you look up your codes?

What about preventative maintenance-ever do any?

What's been tested-how & the results?

Fuel Pressure?
Clogged Exhaust Converter?

Hello, i have a 2004 saturn ion quad coupe, and i shiped it overseas to use it. saturn doesnt exist in the middle east so there is no parts, i asked alot n people say that SATURN has the same OPEL parts....


Good question, the answer is "yes", "no", and "maybe". GM shares a lot of parts internationaly with Opel, Saturn, GM, Chevy, Pontiac, etc. Especialy engine parts. Chassis and body is a different story. You may find tie rods, struts, etc the same, but a headlight won't fit from one to the other. If you've got a 2004 Saturn Ion, you likely have a 2.2 EcoTec. Pretty much all EcoTec parts will fit in one form or another, from one to another. Alternators, starters, etc. You may need to swap plug locations or types, but the actual hard part should "fit". You would need to go dumpster diving to compare or contrast. I guess it all depends on what you need? the Stick
