Powe stering belt (aka serpentine belt) is tightened with a belt tensioner. A new tensioner is needed if the belt is loose or a new belt
Under the hood fuse panel near the battery
Are the belt and belt tensioner in good condition? Are the tires properly inflated?
the tensionjer is a spring tensioner so if it is to low and not holding tension on the belt you need a new tensioner
Check your tensioner
It has a spring loaded tensioner. No adjustment is possible as the tensioner constantly adjusts tension. If tension is incorrect, the tensioner must be replaced.
u do not adjust belt tensioner if belt is loose, u need to replace belt as tensioner works automatically
There is no fluid on the 2004. They operate on electric power steering. you need to replace the two fuses on top of the battery that control your power steering. your owners manual will show you which ones are the right ones.
Its to adjust the angle of the steering wheel
To replace the power steering rack on a Saturn Ion, You must first dissmantle the current steering rack by accessing the main hood, and from there you can screw the new steering rack into place
The battery in the Saturn Vue is located under the hood on the driver's side, near the front of the car.
what does a low battery light look like on a 2001 Saturn
There probably is no power steering fluid in the 05 Saturn. Saturn employs an electric assisted power steering system that still has a rack and pinion, but is electrically operated. A much easier, more bulletproof design in my opinion.
This happened to me as well. Don't forget to re-charge the battery as well. Since the belt broke you probably can assume that the alternator stopped charging the battery at least for a moment.
The battery type foe a 2000 Saturn LS2 is a 12 volt side post. The group size of the battery is 75.
there is no fluid, they have electric power steering.
When the engine first starts, the alternator puts out a little extra current to recharge the battery. If the tensioner pulley is a little loose, the belt will slip on the alternator, making a terrible sound. Check/replace the tensioner. The spring is probably loose.
I have a 2006 Ion - the power steering went out. My dealer said that this was a common problem - Saturn was working on a recall. They took care of replacing the steering column - no charge.
No it will not.
in the trunk.
why dose the new battery and cables not seem to hold a charge in my 2004 saturn ion ?
There are a couple, one is adjacent to the battery; the lid manipulate the tabs on the sides and the lid pops off. The other is under the dash, by the steering column.
