Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

2003 Vue won't start after running perfectly

I have a 2003 Vue 6cyl AWD with almost 75,000 miles on it. It seems to be running perfect when lately I would shut it off while shopping, etc. and when I get back in it it will do nothing but turn over. We just put a new battery in about 3 weeks ago. The first time it did it, it started after the 4th time of trying, but this last time it took several minutes and 2 shots of starting fluid in the air cleaner to get it to start. It ran perfectly all the way home after that. I have not driven it since as I don't want to get stranded somewhere. What could be the problem????

2003 saturn vue AWD seems like the awd kicks in all the time for no reason any thoughts on this issue?


You could have a bad wheel speed sensor going bad for the ABS where the AWD gets it's signal from.

75,000 mile service


You don't need a service of any kind at this mileage, u do need to have this diagnosed for worn front end parts and a full electronic engine control diagnostic, but i will say this the fuel and air filter needs to be changed every 30,000 miles, it this hasn't been done do so, also the transmission needs a fluid and filter change every 60,000 miles, check tire pressure once a month, all these maintainence items affect performance.

Take to a shop they have special equipment to do operation. Special procedures for bleeding air from the system and they can recycle the old coolant. Very toxic for the enviroment.

2005 Saturn Vue AWD 6 cylinder whistle


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.
