Re: Replacing Water Pump

Wow, I forgot all about this thread! The tool worked beautifully, but changing that water pump is a beast. You can find that Lisle tool about anywhere now, including Amazon and Ebay, for cheap. I...

Re: 2004 Saturn Vue Brake line/hose replacement

Do you have anti-lock brakes? If so, it's best not to let the system run dry. Parts stores sell plastic caps you can use to plug the steel lines while you swap out the hoses. When you're done...

Re: 07 VUE Rear Power Outlet in center floor console

I've removed the console without pulling the seats in my 2002. If I remember correctly, there might be a screw under the rubber cup holder insert, the rest are along the side of the console's lower...

Re: Saturn Vue sudden disappointment: water pump leak?

You'll need one of these:

The pump itself isn't very expensive, you'll also want to replace the thermostat while you're...

Re: 08 Vue Won't start

Side terminal batteries are known to leak on occasion and corrode the cables. Disconnect both leads from the battery and bend them around a bit. They should flex easily; if they're brittle or...

Re: Too many brakes to choose from

+1 on the brake fluid flushing. I failed to do that on an old Mazda and when I did the rear brakes I found the pistons were corroded solid to the wheel cylinders. The rear brakes weren't even...

Re: Too many brakes to choose from

The More You Know! I thought the V6 came with discs out back, I guess it's a trim level thing instead.

Re: Too many brakes to choose from

You have the V6 which means you have discs back there, but it's the thought that counts!

Re: Too many brakes to choose from

I second the online option, I always hit up Rockauto if I don't need the parts right away.
Brand wise, I'm a big fan of Raybestos for brake stuff... OEM grade ceramics are perfect for a daily...

Re: 2004 saturn vue 2.2L fwd cyl missfire

A flashing CEL is bad news, I wouldn't recommend driving the car until you're getting it fixed. As already mentioned, you've got a misfire allowing unburned fuel into the catalytic converter, which...

Re: 2004 Saturn Vue 2.2L manual - Check engine light back on and no codes

The typical consumer-level code reader (like mine) is often considered unworthy by many Saturn products :ugh:. Try a place that does free, or at least cheap, scans with a high-end reader.
As far...

Re: Hello! New guy and "low engine power" light

Saturns are notoriously fussy about giving up the goods to retail-quality scanners. I'd recommend going to a well equipped mom/pop shop to see if they can pull a code with a professional scanner. ...

Re: Lift gate struts

I recommend recruiting an assistant; that door is heavy and will need to be held open while you swap out the struts. A little grease in the new parts' mount sockets isn't a bad idea. As already...

Re: Floor heat vents no worky.

I guess I should have mentioned that during my previous search I did find the reprogramming procedure. It took several tries before I finally got it to take, but it didn't fix my problem.

Floor heat vents no worky.

I searched this forum and the interwebs itself, but I couldn't find anyone with my particular problem. My HVAC works fine, except when I switch to the floor vents...nothing happens, air keeps coming...

Re: Replace first: Speakers vs Receiver?

I'm with Team Speaker on this one, but to be sure I'd recommend popping a door panel off and check the condition of your stock units. As previously mentioned, the factory speakers are weak - mine...

Re: What is this???

Here's the OP's leak. I'm thinking it might be seeping from the valve cover. What's the committee's opinion?

Re: The case for less expensive bearings

I understand your reasoning. There's a similar train of thought involving oil changes; use cheap dino oil and a low-end filter every 10k miles and total up the money saved over more frequent $$$...

Re: 2004 Vue 2.2L manual- where is the starter relay?

You might also want to take a good look at the heavy cable running from the battery's positive terminal down to the starter. Side-post batteries like ours have a tendency to leak down the cables,...
