Re: 2004 Saturn vue

There is a reason for those bent valves. Saturns are known to jump timing and in some cases the timing chain breaks. My 04 jumped timing and wasn't worth fixing. Took care of it changed the oil...

Re: '02 Vue 2.2L Timing Chain Failure, Please Read!

After the timing jumped on my 04 Vue 4 cylinder last week and it went to the junk yard, reading the other timing threads in here, and a quick google search on Saturn and timing I'm done with GM. I...

Re: fuel pump cost

I just got the news that the chain jumped timing and the engine is pretty much shot. No compression in 2 and 4. Not worth fixing a car with a value of maybe 1500 bucks when it needs ball joints,...

2004 4 cyl fwd manual 170k. This car owes me nothing after 12 years and has never failed me. I get ready for work and it cranks but no start. Came home from work last night no problem. I don't...

Re: 04 clutch

For 650 if that is the total price for a new clutch installed I would certainly fix it. How much is a new car payment going to be per month?

Re: Type of lube for Shift cables on 06 Vue 2.2L FWD

I replaced my cables last fall at 150k. When winter comes it was impossible to get into first gear. It made a world of difference. Worst part is taking the console apart. Might as well get the...

Re: 2005 Saturn Vue A/C and rad fan not working

Holy crap. Kevlar95, try and put a charge in and see if the compressor kicks on. If it's below 15 pounds the compressor won't kick in. Once you raise the pressure it will come on so when you start...

Re: 2005 Saturn Vue A/C and rad fan not working

First of all does the vehicle get hot to the point the fan should be coming on? I'm thinking a bad switch or bad ground, and ac, does it have enough charge?

Re: 2003 2wd clutch slave cylinder

I'm not having any problems. I'm just curious. As the miles pile up on my 04 I tend to be more aware of any little sounds just to be on the safe side. Nothing worse than being stuck on the side of...

Re: 2003 2wd clutch slave cylinder

I'm at 162k on my 04 and no problems other than an oxygen sensor and crossing my fingers that I get a couple more years out of it. What are the sypmtoms of the slave going bad? I've always been...

Re: It's dead, help!

VTI's are still on the road? GM should of had a class action suit against them on that one, or did they? I never heard about it. I had a 03 and I got rid of it within the first 6 months.

Re: Saturn Vue shift cables

Is that a question or a statement? I changed my manual tranny fluid at 155k just because I plan to run it into the ground. The book says the manual is a sealed unit and doesn't need it. I caught...

Re: 2004 Vue 2.2L 5spd - Clutch Safety Switch

I have 160 thousand miles now and never had an issue but I have had other Chevy vehicles over the years where I just jumpered the wire harness with a paper clip. I guess I'll have to check this in...

Re: Saturn Vue shift cables

Re: Shift cables

Cables finally came. I operate Wednesday morning. I assume they just pry off the tranny side? With temps in the low 30's I can't even drive it now. Hope this fixes it for winter.

Is this part number 21996492 for both cables? On the website it just says "cable". I assume they come as a set? I need to change these out and change the fluid and be done with this. It's plagued...
