Sounds like you could have a vaccuum leak. you could spray carb cleaner around your lines and see if the engine's rpm increases or starts running like ****. That would be an easy test to indicate leak or not.

I have a 03. 2.2 Saturn vue automatic awd it only goes to 30 miles And the engine rpm goes all the way up any ideas


I would have the transmission checked, it sounds like it is not shifting. The transmission is controlled by computer and it can sense problems and return fault codes for what it finds on the test and in its memory.

For some time the rpms will jump about 200 rpm while I'm driving at highway speed. It doesn't feel like the trans is slipping but the revs constantly jump even with cruise control on. My mechanic couldn't...


Had the same problem. In my case, the wiring harness was scraping against the vibrating motor and wore through the insulation. This caused the computer to think the throttle position sensor was bad and the RPMs were erratic. The engine light came on and indicated TPS. A short time later, more of the wires became damaged and the engine started missing cylinders. My problem was at the top rear of the engine where the harness runs over a metal stud (right behind the valve cover). Check your wiring harness. Not an easy find until you actually look for it specifically.

2003 saturn vue


Hate to be the bearer of bad news but mine failed at 29K and became undriveable at 31K and after years of hard handling, I treated that car like it was Christmas tree ornaments, fully expecting it to last until I am dead; the engine failed at 57,600. It's gone and I'm still breathing. It was the last GM anything I will ever own.
