Default 2002 redline Vue starts but stalls if gas given

So I have a 2002 Saturn Vue V6 that has new coil packs and is in overall good condition. It starts and idles fine, but if you press on the gas it stalls. Any ideas?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Need more info. It's either getting too much air or not enough fuel. A shot in the dark guess would be weak fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, or bad MAF sensor.

Is your check engine light on? If so have you retrieved any troublecodes? Have you replaced any other parts recently?

Please confirm which Vue & engine you have. The thread title says you have a 2002 Red Line Vue, but there wasn't a Red Line Vue until 2004 which uses a completely different V6 (Honda 3.5L) engine. A 2002 Vue V6 would have a 3.0L engine.

Hey thanks for trying. It turns out this is the standard 3.0 Saturn motor not the Honda. The guy I got it from just let me know that he thought the key was going to break so he did the following: 1) he put in a new key mechanism and 2) he had a non computer chipped plane metal key cut. He tried both. This is when the problem started. He went to his local shop and they told him it was the coil packs most likely....they changed the coil packs and of course it did not fix it. I was thinking that this could be part of the security function that turns off the fuel if you try to steal the car. Am I on the right track?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You're describing two different issues. The engine starting up means Passlock security isn't the issue. GMs Passlock anti theft system disables injector operation when security detects a theft attempt. The security symbol (car with an oversize padlock on it) flashes during starting - the starter will turn over the engine but the engine will never fire up when injectors are disabled. The engine running means security is disabled. Passlock doesn't require a chipped key. A standard key is used.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
