    You could have a defective sending or it could be getting stuck, as far as P0128 how is the temperature is it all ways the same after warm up...does the heater work correctly?

The codes p0452 and p0463 refer to the fuel sender unit. There may be a wiring problem and the gauge is not working properly.
p0128 indicates that the engine is running too cold. Possible stuck thermostat in open position. This would cause the engine to run a richer fuel mixture.

    The problem may be the fuel sensor it self giving the PCM faulty readings. Hook up a scanner will give you father information. The open Tstate would actually keep the engine cooler. If you always have heat in the vents, you may have a door problem or a heater control valve problem.

  • Joe Russell Nov 17, 2018

    when you say Hook up a scanner do you mean to check for live data?

SOURCE: Can someone help with this

It means there is a problem in the fuel sending unit circuit. The PCM uses a 5v reference on this system to calculate fuel level. There is either a problem in the sending unit or related wires.

that is your 'check engine' light.if it stays on, one or more sensors on your engine has sent a 'trouble code' to the on-board computer.a diagnostic code reader needs to be connected to it to determine the cause.

SOURCE: What causes gas smell from 2006 Saturn Ion--no gas puddles, or loss of gas mileage. Seems to happen after car is turned off and fuel level in gas tank does not seem to be a factor.

This is often caused by corrosion on top of the gas tank. Mud, dirt and water get thrown on top of it and causes the metal to perforate. You can smell it on the move because the fumes dissipate at the rear of the vehicle.

What does code PO446 mean how do i fix this code problem?


You have an Evap System problem and yes, this can cause poor gas mileage. Possible causes are:
  • Plugged vapor canister
  • Faulty vent solenoid
  • Pinched or blocked EVAP hose
  • Faulty FTP sensor

2000 saturn sl2 getting code PO452


I don't have a definition of the code for a Saturn.
The generic definition is for a low pressure reading from the EVAP system. The computer pressurizes the fuel tank and evap system every few minutes to check for vapor leaks. The code means the pressure sensor is showing the tank is not holding pressure which usually means there is a leak somewhere.
If this is happening to your car, it could be the gas cap, a hose from the tank to the vapor canister, a faulty valve, or a leak in the tank.
I doubt it would cause the car to run rough.

Can my 2005 Saturn ion 2 automatic handle e10 fuel?


Yes you can use E10 fuel in your Saturn Ion. A lot of gas these days has about 10% ethanol in it, the only thing you want to watch for is that the E10 fuel meets the minimum octane for your vehicle which is 87.

Engine codes po452, po440,po122. electrical problem?


You should have 3 grounds 1 from the battery to the engine one from the engine to the body and then from the engine to the frame. Look for these grounds they look like braided flat wire. I think you also may have a loose plug or a cut in the main harness from the rear of the vehicle. Look along the frame as the harness runs from back to front. Looking at your codes I do not think they are related to your electrical problem. I gave up trying to fix my gear indicator, I had to replace the fuel tank sensor to get my gas gage working right.
