Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Saturn Ion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 114000 miles
I have checked codes and there are no codes present. I checked fuel pressure and it is 55 PSI The check engine light was on but I cleared it and it has not come back on. The passlock light was on and I reset it. The car will start and run for about 4 seconds then die. It runs smooth then begins to run rough and dies.
Hi Roverboy74, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation
When it dies after that 4 secs, does it start back up with no problem or you have to wait-let me know

The car will start right up with no waiting period and will run fine for 3 of the 4 seconds then runs rough and dies.

Hook up a fuel pressure tester and monitor the pressure before it dies, if okay-test the powertrain relay and the run/crank relay in the underhood fuse block
