Looks like you have aftermarket wheels on this vehicle. I would make sure the front wheels were balanced at a garage that has an up to date wheel balancer. ususally this type of wheel will have to have stick on weights on 2 planes of the wheel. ask your shop if they rotated the tires when they pulled the trans.... if they did, rotate them back. also, they should have centering rings on each wheel to center the aftermarket wheel to the hub. these are called hub centric rings. be sure none of these were taken off... lastly, the drive shaft could also be an issue. was this replaced? was it balanced? are the u joints tight?

SOURCE: transmission 2003 saturn vue 4cyh cvt trans

If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.

SOURCE: Shaking at highway speeds.

As for your shaking at highway speeds, providing your tires have been balanced properly, it's probably a u-joint. If you let off the gas when it's vibrating, and the vibration quits immediatly, it's a u-joint. If it doesn't, it's a tire or wheel.
The squeak is probably a shock, but that would be a guess.

SOURCE: front end and steering wheel shakes

Most common problem would be tires are out a balance. Or, the tires are out of round ( meaning the tires have a hop to it; not completely round ).

If you replaced the fuel pump then there is a possibility that during the job then some debris from the tank and/or filter got loose somewhere into the fuel system and is in your lines. It could even be a very tiny speck of gasket material, old or new.

Shaking while driving


The shaking can be the brakes, rotors, tires, poss alignment or wheel balance. It may also be connected to that CV boot that is torn and leaking which affected the axle. It has to be lifted & checked out. Good luck

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.


Hi:
Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!

Sudden release of power while driving at 65 miles


at that high a mileage it could be very likely the trans is starting to fail, have the computer tested for transmission trouble code's (trans is fully electronically shifted and controlled), also it is very unlikely the alignment check is related.
