Front of engine, right side as you're facing engine. It's about a foot down and sits upright in a black case with a spin-on top. You'll need a big socket to remove the top and the old filter will pull out.
The type of oil you put in a 2006 Saturn Ion should be 5w30synthetic oil. However, it's always best to check the owner'smanual for the preferred oil.

You need a 32mm short well socket (Advanced Auto Parts) and at least a 6 inch extension. Do not use pliers, you will get a hairline crack in the cap and the oil will flow out like melted butter.
the car will let you know every 7500km.. but i do mine every 5000k just to be safe and the engine works better with new oil
If you look at the intake manifold, it is to the immediate right of the manifold. You will see a nut on a cap. That cap covers the oil filter housing.

When the oil life message comes on does that mean that an oil change is needed or does is need more oil?
On GM vehicle the oil life monitoring system is designed to look at several factors like usage and air temperature and tell you when the oil quality is compromised. It is merely asking for an oil change.
I have a 2007 and I have to push the trip button until the oil life indicator shows. Once it does I have to push and hold the button until it says reset.
Your oil isn't yellow, its a light brown/gold color as such with almost all new (unused/not dirty) oil. It just looks yellow because of the light.
When you see the Change Oil light on, push and hold the button just like you would to reset the trip counter
turn on your key..hold in the milage reset button..keep it held in and roll engine over..keep it held in till it disappears..if that doesnt work..push milage reset button till "oil life" appears..then hold it in for few seconds till it disappears
No. Saturn is made mostly of hydrogen and helium. It does not havethe composition or environment needed for the formation ofpetroleum oil.
Either the cap is cracked, which you will need a new one from the dealer. Or you forgot the o ring when installing the new filter
If it's the same as the '05, then you should be able to drain the oil from the oil pan on the bottom of the vehicle. The filter is in a casing mounted on the engine. It should still be on the left side, and it's right on top. Five bolts maybe?
Saturn Ion from 03-07 has a electric power steering motor located under the steering wheel. . The solution would be : . 1. Check your fuse boxes for any bad fuses mini fuses inside your car ( panel is next to your right leg on the driver side under the radio) and or your maxi fuse under your hood …( where the red tab is on the black box). . 2. If you checked your fuse boxes then the next thing you might need is Calipers for both sides on the front wheels even more so if you hear a grinding noise. Because you might have a brake drag ( when brake pads don't open all the way up) throwing your sensors off (check your brakes for uneven wear). . 3. Last you just might need a new power steering motor. (MORE)
Why does the check oil light and warning noise continue to come on after the oil has been changed a new oil filter and oil level is full on a 2004 Saturn ion?
That means the mechanic who change the oil didn't reset the change oil light,. HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM: when change oil is displayed on the screen just hold the button in until the message is gone, this resets it for another 5000kms, its just a reminder.
You mix one qt 530 synthetic oil with four qts 530 regular oil for oil change in my 2007 Saturn Ion Is this procedure good for engine?
you should never mix regular oil with synthetic. it will harm your engine over time. i would go get everything flushed out then add either one or the other.
Place a drip pan below of the oil filter. Attach an oil filterwrench to the filter. Turn the wrench to the left. When the oilfilter is loose turn with your hand until it comes off.
Bad oil pressure switch - $10 Clogged intake screen - $?? Bad oil pump - $1000 Worn bearings in engine - $a lot
The bottom part of the engine is the oil pan. There will be a drain plug on it, remove drain plug and oil will come out; properly dispose of oil.
Saturn Ions use a cartridge oil filter. Looking at the engine its to the right, there is a black plactic cylinder about three inches in dyamiter with a plastic bolt head on it. Just use an adjustable wench to remove the black cap. The filter will be attached and it just pops off and the new one will… pop in. (MORE)

Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain the oil and replace the filter. Add 4 quarts of the correct weight oil. Start the engine and run for 1 minute. Shut off and wait 30 minutes.

Turn the key to the "on" position without starting the car. After the dash light test completes (all the lights go off except what should be on) fully press the accelerator pedal to the floor three times. The oil life light should start flashing, indicating that it is reset.
You don't. There is no place for the average consumer to either check the transmission fluid (no dip stick) nor add transmission fluid. A mechanic told me it has to be brought to the dealership. There's no radiator cap either.
Turn key on (engine off) and press and release gas pedal 3-5 times until oil life message resets.
Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain the oil and change the filter. Pour in 4.5 quarts of the correct weight oil and start the engine. Let it run for 1 minute and then shut down. Wait 30 minutes and check the oil level. Add enough oil to reach the full mark on the dip stick. Do not overfill. Y…ou now know the capacity. In addition on almost every vehicle I recommend 5,000 mile oil change intervals. But on your Ion, I recommend you change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles. There is a design flaw in this engine that requires that you make sure the oil never ever gets very dirty. So no your vehicle change the oil/filter every 3,000 miles religiously. (MORE)
If the low coolant message is on and you are certain that the coolant level is up, then you probably have a faulty sensor or sensor connector. The low coolant indicator should turn itself off as soon as the coolant is filled.
A 32mm socket with a long extention. Make sure the O ring on the cap is good.
Oil life on a 2006 hhr means the period that the oil is required tobe changed.
