Sounds like a fuel issue to me. Maybe the fuel is sloshing to the right of the tank and causing air to be drawn into the fuel line. Just a guess but something to think about.

2004 Saturn Ion with M75 automatic transmission

I believe this is almost the same engine and transmission as my 2002 Saturn LW200. We had problems with lurching, jerky shifting and occasional stalling. I was worried that the transmission was going out. Got a transmission service for $150 which they need after 125k miles anyway. Turned out to be the throttle position sensor (TPS). I was able to fix it by cleaning the TPS with WD-40 but your engine has drive-by-wire if I'm not mistaken which makes it more complicated. What this means is that your gas pedal is not directly connected to the throttle body with a cable. it works something similar to a volume knob and tells the computer how much to open the throttle body butterfly. A drive-by-wire throttle system is best left to someone with skills in that area. A shop should be able to read the codes and determine if your drive-by-wire system is working well. That will be much less expensive that a transmission rebuild.

Why does my 2005 saturn stall when i am driving

The air filter, fuel filter and oxygen sensor are definitely things to look at but the 2005 ION doesn't have a distributor it has an ignition module. Not the cheapest part. I own a 2005 ION and had a similar problem. It was idling at a low RPM and would stall when I had the clutch in long enough to let the engine idle. I simply cleaned the throttle body and the problem was solved. The throttle body gets a nasty build up on it and needs to be cleaned regularly. It's fine when the throttle is open but as soon as you allow the throttle to close to the idle position the engine is choked because of the build-up. My wife's car is an '06 Ion automatic and it was doing the same thing when she had the brake on at a light or a stop sign. Same solution worked just fine.

Also her car had a problem with stalling when she went over bumps and around corners. These cars have really bad ignition switches and key tumblers and it turns out after we had a dealer look at it that the weight of her key ring (it had way too many things on it) slowly caused the ignition to wear out and it would shut off the power when it jiggled the wrong way.

Not sure if these describe your solution but I hope that it helps.

Where is the IAT sensor on a 2005 saturn ion

Your IAT is a sensor located on the left(looking from the front) of your air cleaner box.
If your going to install a mod chip, Throw away the 5 cent mod chip. Its going to make the engine run even more rich that it already does. You'll be bogging down the engine with extra unburnt fuel and loosing performance and shorting the life of your O2 sensor and the cat.
The IAT sensor "mod" works on some cars (ford), but not the Saturn. Sorry to say.

It may feel real good for a few miles, but your computer is going to BURY that thing, richen up that mix until the thing gets all loaded up on unburned fuel and you you toast your catalytic converter ($400.00).

Thank you for using fixya and good luck.
