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.

Do you
have the same problem?

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
