2008 Ion Redlines don't exist.

But to answer your question, white smoke is coolant. It's likely one of 2 things:

- Blown head gasket
- Cracked sleeve

Any coolant in the oil? Loosing any coolant from the reservoir?

Agree with rebel if it's that much smoke it's most likely coolant. It could be oil but it takes a fair amount of oil for the amount of smoke you are describing. Check your fluid lvls whatever is low is probably the cause.

Agreed, I can't believe that GM never built a successor to the 2010 Cobalt SS Turbo.

All we got was the lame Cruze!

they say it's the 2.0 L 4-cylinder 250 HP turbocharged buick verano that is the successor to the IRL

or just what they think is most like the IRL today

they also have chevy mailbu which think comes with a turbo option


every car manufacturer seems to be going turbo
