Re: New Recall and it affects us!

I actually have both scenarios where I can take the key out from run position but also the cylinder randomly doesn't want to let go of the key when in off position! Fortunately it's not a frequent...

Re: Service wrench light

Was getting the wrench light on again after seeing it a year ago and fixing with new gas cap at the time. In this newer case it was not a totally continuous issue, It would usually come on when...

Re: 2003 3.0L rebuild

Wasn't that the Honda engine where Saturn would just pull it if under warranty and send to Honda? I'd think if they were doing it with the Ellesmere 3.0 it'd only be a way to charge more cash!

Re: Stereo Swap-2002 SC1 to 2003 VUE

I'm preparing to swap out my factory head-unit for an aftermarket one and picked up a Metra harness adaptor/convertor #70-2002. According to the small slip of paper that came with it the Saturn...

Re: GM dealerships finally accept saturns!!

I saw in the news that GM is supposedly considering dumping several brands (remember Oldsmobile?) including Saturn to try to help stem their financial bloodletting. If/when this happens GM will be...

Re: '03 Vue Daytime Running lamps

I'd pull the relay and see what happens. If it's a bad relay or if the relay has a bad connection you should see the little cluster light flash when you start the Vue (as noted above) but the...

Re: Not very happy

I wasn't talking about the rebadged Chryslers or other low end models. My point is that if the poster was making the comments about a high end MB rather than the Vue then some of us might be able to...

Re: pros & cons of putting an Optima battery in a Vue

My understanding is that the cover is supposed to control the acidic vapors produced by typical lead-acid batteries. Vapors are not an issue with the Optima. As far as problems with jump starting, I...

Re: Not very happy

Actually I've seen many more posts where those with Honda engines tell potential buyers to avoid the Ellesmere/Vauxhall (3.0) V6 because they are oh so much less in comparison...

Any way, the...

Re: '03 Vue V6 Stripped Oil Pan

The moral to this story is: Stay away from Jiffy Lube!

My mother had the same problem a while back with those hacks. Ended up costing her big bucks for a new pan at Saturn. Of course JL wouldn't...

Re: Interested in buying a Vue

Umm, if you are talking limited funds you might want to consider the pre-Honda V6 (circa 2003). There really is nothing wrong with it despite what the Honda partisans say! Not as modern or efficient...

Re: Transmission cooler?

AFAIK most, if not all cars equipped with automatic transmissions make use of an oil cooler integrated into the radiator as part of the package. These are generally considered adequate though less...

Re: 04 Vue Antenna Sheered right off!

I would suggest for Plan B you could try an undersize drill and EZ out approach before going the retap (presumably followed by helical coil) approach. This is assuming there is something there worth...

Re: Oxygen Sensor Replacement

Well, something to consider is that the fault could be from a bad harness while the existing sensor could still be good! (One way to determine that would be to swap the stuff around and see how the...

Re: Low resale value?

I'm none too thrilled that the EPA came out with revised gas milage numbers a month after I bought my Greenline. The new numbers say I can expect 23mpg in the city, not 27. I wish someone had...

Re: Correct Air Pressure in Tires

There is really no definitive "one size fits all" answer regarding tire pressure. It always involves trade offs between wear characteristics, road hazard vulnerability, fuel economy, handling and...

Don't know your mileage & history but you might consider replacing water pump & timing belt at the same time.

Re: 2003 Vue ???

To add to my previous post here, there is a thread in these forums dated back several months where the relative merits of the L81 were fairly thoroughly hashed. Some posters claimed the engine was...

Re: 2003 Vue ???

From what I understand Honda needed small diesel engines for the European market which GM-Isuzu provided in trade for the 3.5L. Considering the L81 V6 was made in a British plant where nothing else...

Re: Electric steering lockup

I've never run into it in any vehicle I've ever drove, even when squeezing into spaces that are so small most people won't attempt it! I should add that this includes Arizona summer heat!

Re: Over-weight in 08'

Ummm, I hate to get back on topic here, But if the GM 3.6L uses an iron block (does it?) then maybe that and the xtra transmission mechanism could explain part of the extra weight.

Re: Tread Depth and stopping distances in the rain

What's also a very large factor in the rain (as well as in snow BTW) is the sipes which open sideways across the grooves of the tread. These give water (and liquified snow) someplace to go instead of...

Re: Geez, Another Tire Pressure Thread!

I think most people should be looking at running with between 32-35 psi. All other things being equal, higher values improve fuel economy a bit but increase likelihood of road hazard damage, wear in...

Re: Twitchy steering

It's not unusual for different size and (especially) different brand tires to feel different. Tread, sidewall, and ply designs and construction can vary, affecting how the tire acts. Also, the...
