Re: Saturn vue engine swap help

Do you have the correct ECM for the manual transmission??

Is the ECM grounded. There is a ground wire under one of the ECM bolts.

Crankshaft sensor, I believe its located under the starter.

Re: 2003 Saturn Vue 4-cyl Manual Transmission 204k miles

With this many miles, I suspect you may have timing chain issue on the horizon. One item you might consider is an upgrade to the timing chain tensioner.

Re: 2003 Saturn Vue 4-cyl Manual Transmission 204k miles

Check codes. What codes are set.

Flashing SES usually indicates some type of fuel burn issue that will destroy the cat converter.

Re: Crank, no start to locked up?

One way to tell if you have bent valves. Remove the timing chain and cams, all valves should now be closed. then do a compression test. if you have good compression, then you lucked out.

Re: Crank, no start to locked up?

The four banger is an interference engine, if the chain is broke, piston hit valves and bent them and possibly punched a hole through the piston, etc. Sometimes, if the chain only jumped by one...

Re: How reliable are the 05 Vues?

I's say once you get past the 2004s, rust will be the number one killer.

Front engine cradle mounts, rear suspension mounts, fuel lines.
