Question ATTN:AWD V-6 owners

Hey everyone,
I have my 6 cylinder vue for about 1400 miles and about a month,
There is a serious problem with the engine.
When the car is in park rev the engine fairly quickly to
1500-2000 RPMS . The ENGINE BACKFIRES!!
It sounds serious .It was just doing it in park.
Pop your hood have someone rev your engine with the hood up.
NowI hear it when driving at low rpms with the torque converter locked and in 5th gear.

Took it back to the dealer and they said that they checked
another AWD 6 VUE and it did the same thing.They wrote
it off as normal sound as stated on the service invoice.No
serive engine light but you guys should hear this sound.
Just can't be right. Any help appreciated.
I am beyond the return period. I have a 2000 LS2 6
and no noise. Could someone out there check their Vue
and let me know.
Thanks
Jude

Dude... take it back immediately and get a new one before the 1500 mile/30 day period is up....
Don't let them fix it for you... it should not have an issue like this so early in it's life. Use the buyback policy... that's what it's there for.

I agree with AWF's post. Something is WRONG. If I were you, I would call the Saturn Customer Assistance Center (800-553-6000) and tell them about your experience with the service department at your retail facility. Get the SCAC involved and they will make sure it gets fixed.

The Vue V6s have intake runner valves that at the right RPM close. If the engine is revved up very quickly when you're not driving these valves will pop closed and make a hell of a noise. This IS normal. It could sound like a back fire.
