Default Re: 2003 Saturn vue fwd trans issue

Update your personal profile to reflect model and engine. Without any more background info about your issues, this can be a guessing game from anyone to muddy any public diagnosing/troubleshooting. Is this a problem with awd engaging/disengaging, failure of the xmission in fwd mode to shift correctly or an engine problem? As you may or may not know, electronics governs the engine and electronic xmission and a problem with the engine can affect xmission operation. Very few if any have ecm or tcm issues on these forums. Valve bodies or the pressure control solenoids are more likely prone to wear and tear and can be difficult to diagnose without expertise and decoding stored error messages as either high number P codes or other codes (U, B, C). Many older generic readers may not decode high numbered P codes, making it more difficult to diagnose problems. Either an up to date personal reader or auto store reader like Autozone or Advance Auto may decode the hidden errors.

Some basic vehicle info such as mileage, maintenance performed, mods if any, and descriptions of symptoms (as detailed as necessary) may help draw a picture for anyone not standing or riding along with you to see/hear what's going on.

An 03 auto trans varies if it is a v6 motor or 4cyl.

V6? Try a certified used TCM first. Feel free to give more info on your model and problem.
