Re: 2003 vue 3.0 brakes and guage cluster

Re: First ever time owning a Saturn

All you can do is a drain and fill. Pretty sure there is no trans pan to drop. Use Honda fluid. Lots of videos showing steps. My vue has toyo trans and it likes drain/fills.

Re: First ever time owning a Saturn

Does it have a v6 or 4 cyl motor.
V6 has Honda motor and trans
4 cyl has a Chevy trans. 4t45e.
So you did or did not have a trans fluid change?

Re: Steering rattle

Yes, I drove the 08 10 years ago and it had 30k miles and rattled. Sis never did anything about it. Even when it had warranty.
