I have a 2003 Ion Quad Coupe with the 2.2 Eco engine. Taking a look at my dipstick the other day, I noticed that when I cleaned it off to check the oil, there was a lot of metal flakes in it. Also don't know how but the dipstick looks like its been chewed up a little. The engine is also running really rough, which has progressively been getting worse, at an idle or getting off the highway, it seems to convulse (for lack of a better term) and doesnt stop for the entire time its running. Also when off of a fresh start the car will shake, time to time it has stalled out on me.
I am at wits end with the car and am ready to trade it in, any ideas?
