Re: CV Axle replacement: transmission fluid replacement question

Real quick...not sure if anyone else saw this, but the 2002 and 2003 V6 Vue's with the Aisin 5 speed transmission DO NOT use Dexron VI.

They use ATF T-IV. GM dealers sell T-IV in a relabeled...

Re: 2003 Ion engine cradle interchangability

I would say it's a safe bet that if your vehicle has a manual transmission, you can more than likely use a subframe from any year ION or Cobalt. Throughout the ION's run, as well as the Cobalt's run,...

Re: 3.0 v6 timing

Just so we're all clear, there are two sets of timing marks when setting the timing on the 3.0 V6. There are the "fixed" marks on the cam/crank sprockets/rear timing cover, and the timing marks on...

Re: 2006 Redline

The parts you are looking for are called the "Fog Lamp Bezels". The right part number is 15869765 and the left part number is 15869764.

These parts were discontinued by GM several years ago. When...

Re: transmission fluid

To actually answer your question, the '02/'03 Vue's with the 3.0 has an Aisin transmission that uses ATF T-IV. It's usually tough to find regular T-IV at a normal auto parts store. The cheapest place...

Re: ECU fried

FYI...the '08/'09 Vues used the very common E67 ECM that was used across MANY GM models from Cobalts to Cadi's. With that said, there are lots of used replacements available for very cheap if you're...

Re: DEAD 2008 Vue XR, HELP ME!?!?!?!?!?

The timing chains on the 3.6 are definitely a weak point on these engines. The chains on these engines are thinner than some bicycle chains. They are great at being quiet, but they are notorious for...

Re: 3.5L timing belt cover bolt options

Glad to hear you got your Vue back together. For someone who only wants to use OEM parts, I'm surprised you'd be asking for an alternative to the factory bolts.

Overall I was really pleased with...

Re: 3.5L timing belt cover bolt options

I had a similar issue when I went to do my Redline's second timing belt change at 200K.

I found that not all of my timing cover bolts were bad, just the ones that are most exposed to water, salt,...

Re: Airbag Lamp on

It could absolutely be a humidity issue based on that TSB above. Temperature seems less likely, although if it's on it's way out, I could see temperature being an issue.

Re: 06-07 rear differential, is it the same 4cyl and 6cyl?

Couple of things. First, the last year for the VTi AWD 4 cylinder Vue was 2005. The CVT was eliminated from the FWD automatic 4 cylinder models starting in 2005, replaced with 4 speed Hydromatic, but...

Re: 2007 wheels.. going from 16 to 17-18

Wheels from a GMC Terrain WILL NOT fit any Saturn Vue.

Both the GMC Terrain ('10-17) and second generation Chevy Equinox ('10-17) use a 5x120 bolt pattern. They are both second generation Theta...

Re: 2007 wheels.. going from 16 to 17-18

No issues at all with spacing or offset. All Vue wheels of any size are interchangeable. The running gear on all Vues was more or less the same (knuckles, hubs, brakes, etc.) from '02-'07.

In...

Re: 2008 Vue Redline, Needing New Head Gasket

Re: Anyone to critique my Ebay ad?

The Aisin transmissions used in the 3.0 V6 Vue's and early ION's are extremely stout and reliable, but they can definitely be sensitive to worn out fluid. GM actually changed their fluid change...

Re: 04-07 Vue - 3.5 Multiple Cylinder Misfire
