stalling feeling and slow to accelerate
 
Hi SaturnFans!

I was wondering if anyone experienced a similar problem like the one below:

I have a 2008 saturn vue 4-Cyl, 2.4 Liter V6 with 90,000 miles.
I started up my car this morning and there was a slight vibrating feel. I kind of dismissed it and went on my way. A few miles later, I came to a stop light and the car started to vibrate slightly, made a quiet putt putt noise and felt like it was going to stall out. When the light changed, I accelerated and there was a little hesitation but then it was fine for the next few miles. Then I slowed down to turn a corner it felt like it was going to stall out again and there was another hesitation when accelerating.

Any thoughts?

Thank you,
Nessie

So many choices. Bad gas or fuel filter?

Something to consider? Take a look at the following at YouTube:

/watch?v=XZpTtxBa4OMwatch - or search for "2008 saturn vue p0300"...

The title of the video is "443-2008 Saturn Vue XR AWD-P0300, P0024 TSB Camshaft Thrust Washers & Change Timing Chains"

I have a V6 with a similar hesitation...

I was having misfires and hesitations for quite a while, for example when trying to maintain speed on an incline. I assumed it was clogged fuel filter, but the FF on this model is not user-serviceable. Then I changed my spark plugs per the maintenance schedule, and to my surprise, the problem went away. The old plugs were pretty wasted. Maybe this is happening to you.
