Soo many mechanical possibilities if you started a frozen motor..do you plug vehicle in with a water heater at night to keep it from freezing where you live?...you'll need to have a compression test to determine if a ring or valve train component didnt break from starting it when frozen..

Hello, looking for starter location for a 2006 saturn vue 2.2l 4 cylinder.


If it's like every other 2.2 front wheel drive Saturn, it should be at the bottom front of the engine, away from the serpentine belt side.
Look under the car, right side. It should be fairly obvious .
Please disconnect the battery before attempting any removal.

My 03 saturn vue starts but does not go forward or reverse


Is this the 4 cylinder or the 6 cylinder model? The 4 cylinder has a notoriously troublesome Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). These mischievous little skamps like to cause mischief at just the wrong times, such as when you are on your way to work on Monday morning, or when you are in the path of a train.

Since you have no engagement into forward or reverse the drive belt has likely failed you. Replace the case half and filter, and all of your dreams will be realized.... probably..

I have an 03 Saturn Vue with a 3.0 car has been running fine until Friday wife drove it to the store car started running rough then died now car will not start and has a poor crank anyone have any ideas of...


Engine needs to crank over strong and steady to have a chance of starting. Youi said it has a poor crank. Battery may be low or bad. If you get the engine to crank over corrrectly and it srill does not start check fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse.

03 saturn view cranks but wont start


first of all, check the fuel pump relay to see if it is going bad. if it is ok! also try this, Have a person turn key to on,, and put your hand on bottom of fuel tank. if the pump is turning on, you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. the pump only turns on for a few seconds to pressurize system, or to get fuel to the engine. just keep turning key on and off to recycle fuel pump. Good-Day! Hope this helps! relay for pump may be bad.< Check this first.

Ran 03 saturn vue into mud hole and it died and when i tried to crank it back up it wouldnt start the motor turned over but it felt like the starter didnt have enough juice to crank it


you may be hydro locked. pull your air filter and see if it's full of water. then pull your spark plugs and turn the engine over. see if you blow any water out of the cylinders. if you didn't damage it, you should be able to get it started with a new filter and spark plugs.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

'03' Vue has trouble starting


Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. By the way the power steering is electric in Saturn, so it does not require the engine to be running.
