Re: 3.5l engine cooling fluid temperature

1saxman, Well, maybe the reason I haven't got service light for the low temp is that it is supposed to be that low, which I do not know for sure. I think that the temperature sensor is right on the...

Re: lease up.. buy back?

In fact, it might be a good deal for Canadians that Penske is not taking over Saturn in Canada. According to a recent GM news release, they will be taking over Saturn in Canada for all warranty and...

Re: Owner Story: Vacationing with the Vue and a RV Trailer

I would be interested to know what the fuel consumption was with this Vue pulling a 3000# trailer. I have a 2007 Vue AWD, 3.5 l engine and started pulling a 2150# dry weight 17’ ultralite trailer,...

Re: Steering Wheel: Shudder, Loose, Play...Resolution

Well, one thing is for sure, the way the clamp was tightened up, it had some free play that could have been causing a bit of a clunk. I managed to tighten it up by about 1/3 of a turn, which got rid...

Re: Adding a transmission cooler- is this what I need to disconnect?

I kind of need to disagree with your statement that Vue shouldn’t need a transmission cooler when pulling 3500# trailer. In fact, I am fairly certain that even with lighter trailers, say around...

Re: Noise from the front end
