Question about 2008 Saturn Vue Hybrid

1 Answer

Oil Filter I have a 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid and I think I located the black housing where the filter is inside. How do I remove the housing and is this going to be a real messy job? Won't the oil be hot even after I drained the oil from the oil pan? What tools do I need if any to remove the filter? Also, do you know where I can find a good repair manual for this vehicle? Thanks

First which engine do you have? If you have the Ecotec 2.4 4 cylinder you should be able to use a 32 millimeter socket with an extension. Some oil will run off of the filter but should not be real hot. Drain all of the oil from the engine first. Chilton's is a good manuel to use.

Where is the oil filter on the 2007 saturn vue


The 2007 saturn VUE FWD 4 uses a cartridge type oil filter instead of the traditional canister.
The location of the oil filter varies, but for your car it is laying horizontally in the front of the engine next to the exhaust manifold.

Take care and good luck

Changing the tramission filter on a 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid

Hello and welcome. here is the instructions for removing the trans filter. you will need to drop the bottom trans pan off to gain access to the filter.

  • Remove the oil pan bolts from only the front and the sides.
  • Loosen the rear oil pan bolts about 4 turns.
  • Lightly tap the oil pan with a rubber mallet or pry in order to allow the fluid to drain.
  • Remove the remaining oil pan bolts.
  • Remove the oil pan.
    Install the oil pan attaching bolts.
    Tighten the bolts to 12 N·m (106 lb in).

    2007 saturn vue 4 cylinder - change oil

    if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
    P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
    Good Luck

    Cannot locate oil drain plug on 2004 Saturn Vue

    It is probably a bit different on the 4-cyl engines than the V6 engines. I'll assume you have the V6 for the moment since those seemed to be more popular.

    On the 3.5L V6, the drain plug is behind the passenger side wheel well and I believe takes a 17mm socket/wrench to remove.

    Finding oil filter on 2007 toyota highlander hybrid

    The filter access door is located under vehicle to the right near the front (about 24 inches forward of the oil drain plug). By removing two 10-mm hex nuts, you will see a cap that is removed using a ratchet extension. You will need a pair of Channel Lock pliers that is able to spread to at least 4 inches across to unscrew the filter housing. If it is similar to the 2008 you will need to keep the old housing and just replace the paper filter and "o" rings.

    Good Luck
