2005 Saturn Vue AWD 6 cylinder whistle

After driving late night on a mountain road , I noticed that my Vue ( 36,000 miles) started to whistle after it warmed up and was at speeds of 30 mph or higher. Whilse sound liek its coming from the back half of the vehicle. Inspection showed no holes no loose parts. Can't find out what is causing it. Any suggestions?

Hi all,
I currently own a 2005 saturn vue and also a 2002 saturn vue. My 2005 began making the same whistling sound around 36000 miles, I let it go and let it go. Finally it got so bad I could not deal with it any longer, I have a great mechanic and he automatically point out the carrier bareing I had it replaced and my car is very very peaceful...... :) Hope this helps.

There is a bearing that supports the dive shaft to the rear wheels. This bearing dries out with road grime and under car washes. Greasing the bearing eliminated the whistling

I have a 2006 with the same symptoms. I've been spraying mine with penetrating oil
and it makes it stop for a while. How did you grease the bearing. Did it need to be
removed first?

    I also added a sheild to protect the bearing from splash and debrishttp://www.impact3d.com/center_support_b...

Battery light followed by total failure on freeway. Autozone tested altenator and replaced battery earlier that day.


change alternator and maybe battery. Since the battery is pretty new, draining it like you say only took a year or two off its lifespan. Remember how your car acted this time, as most newer cars do the same exact thing when the charging system or battery needs service. In the future, you will recognize the symptom and know where to look before you get stranded.

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue XE AWD 6 cylinder that is only getting about 19mpg highway miles. Does anyone have similar problems and wondering if it is something that can be done to improve this. Thanks!


You can change the spark plugs and coils, wires for a little better gas mileage. I would say 60,000-70,000 miles. If you are under that, probably still ok. You can try fuel injector cleaner in the tank. Check your tires and make sure they are properly filled up. If the vehicle is out of alignment, it will cause bad gas mileage. Make sure you have no vacuum leaks and make sure your air filter is clear. If you have any questions, just let me know.

Is your driving primarily city?
You may want to check to see if the clutch master cylinder reservoir is full. If it is not full you may have a leak or the clutch friction disk is worn. If the fluid is at the correct level, you might consider having the fluid flushed and refilled.

You should still be under warranty, unless you have more than 36,000 miles. Take it in and tell them the ignition cylinder is binding. There is a technical service bulletin for this issue that says they need to remove the cylinder, clean it, and lubricate it with a special lubricant. If this still doesn't fix it they will need to replace the ignition cylinder and probably the ignition cylinder housing too. The bulletin number is 06-02-35-016c, this should help who ever gets to fix this.
