Question Ion trouble shooting


I just bought a 2004 Ion for my newest project. This will be my first time working on the 2.2 Ecotech. Former owner claims it had a head gasket diagnosed as blow and parked the car. It has been sitting for 3 months. When I arrived I inspected coolant and oil. Both fluids were at the correct level and without even a trace of foreign liquids present. I asked her for symptoms that lead her to have it serviced. I was surprised to learn that the issue was only that the car stalls from time to time and was becoming more frequent. So I asked for the key and it fired up immediately with now SES light present. Took on a small test drive of 7 miles and only just I was I returning it did it stall. It was at a light w foot on the brake and it instantly restarted and completed the trip. Her claim is, as well as my observation, that it never overheats. My code reader shows zero current or stored codes. Obviously I plan on doing a compression test as well as fuel pressure reading.

I'm just wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone else. Any ideas are welcome.

BTW, car has 170K and is an automatic. Routine maintenance shown by stack of receipts.

Thumbs up Don't trust EVERY reciept

I would double check -over things like the spark plugs and boots (one might be cracked or worn). Check over all the connections and groundings on the pack, could also be the ignition pack(or one of the coils), but you would need a scope to check for that. Look CAREFULLY at the throttle body for stripped mounting screws/bolts and for a soft/pliable mounting seal. Clean away (with carb spray) dirt/carbon on throttle.

Good luck, Robert
