SOURCE: random multiple misfirings

Here is a list of possible causes. You should not drive the vehicle if the check engine light is flashing all the time, you can cause even more damage. It could pay to have a professional find the real cause.

Spark plugs that are incorrect for the application, cracked, improperly gaped or worn can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An IC module that failed to correctly control the ignition coil(s) will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
Poor connections, broken wiring or wiring that has shorts to ground can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times. NOTE: Check connectors that might be pulled apart as the engine flexes or wires that short to ground as they pass near brackets or shorts to ground on the exhaust manifold.
Fuel injector(s) that are shorted, plugged or partially restricted can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An ignition coil(s) that has low output, corrosion on the coil tower(s), is carbon tracked or arcs to ground will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
A PCM that failed to properly control the injector or ignition timing will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.

I am not a mechanic and have had no problems with my 2005 Ion-2 but at msn/autos I see that these can exhibit a starting problem because of the ignition switch which they recommend replacing. The part is around $40 & the labor is 1 hr.

SOURCE: My 2005 Saturn ION will not start once in a while.

My 2005 did the same thing. It was the ignition switch. Happened mostly when it was a cold morning. Seems to be a common problem.

2005 Saturn vue wants to fire but won't. Battery reads 12.2.volts prior to starting and drops to 9 volts when trying to start. replaced cap and it started on first try. it had a rough idle before...


Unfortunately the answers you have given for replacing a cap is too vague. Is it a gas cap, radiator cap, air conditioning service port cap.... Look the battery needs charged that is why the battery drops to 9 volts, a good charged battery should drop to 10 volts. Check your battery terminals or cables for corrosion. Do a voltage drop tests on both positive and ground cables. As far as not starting any more...do you mean not cranking as in no starter eengagement or cranking but not running? If it is not running listen to hear in the first 10 seconds to the fuel pump relay if it engages or listen for fuel pump...is the car getting spark?

2006 saturn ion .car started idling really rough and had no power. Almost stalled out. Had it tested and it said small vacuum leak and misfire. So I replaced the gas cap with an OEM cap and it is still...


Not to sound rude, but when it says "vacuum leak", it means from the intake manifold. Get a can or two of Ether, and start the engine. Have someone run it at a steady RPM. Spray the ether around the manifold, and any hoses under the hood, until you hear the engine rev up. Spray along said section until you find the issue. Replace the offending part. As for the misfire, this should cure that, and if not, try simple things, IE, spark plug replacement, etc.

When I lock my 2004 Saturn ION with the remote, the Passlock light comes on for about 10 seconds then starts blinking. When I do it manually from the door and then shut the door, it does not do that. I...


Passlock is the anti theft that is built into your car from GM. If the car is not stalling while driving or having starting issues, it is probably not a problem. It might just be an informative light. If it ends up making your car die or not start, it is a passlock failure which can be expensive.

2005 saturn ion 141k miles on it. when you start car it runs real rough, put on a code reader and it read miss fires all cylinders.


Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

My check engine light came on and when i pushed my onstar button it said something about my gas cap. do you know what it may be? i did just put a locking one on my car


Your fuel system is a sealed system and part of the emission system also.If the gas cap is not tight or the seal has gone bad on the cap it will set a light.
