My 2003 Saturn VUE is saying that I'm over-heating (both the warning light stays on, and the gauge stay pegged hot) even after my car has been sitting in the driveway for 2-3 days (or longer). There is not...


i'd change the engine temperature sender unit , or just disconnect it for a while and see if the gauge symptoms disappear , if they do then change the temp sender unit,if the symptoms remain i'd say get the OBD codes read as may have a faulty dash component

I HAVE A 2003 SATURN ION. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. I HAD THE CAR HOOKED UP TO AN ANALYZER AND IT COMES UP WITH A MAP SENSOR CODE. I REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR AND THE PROBLEM DID NOT GO AWAY....


On your vehicle when the Check engine light comes on and a code is store, the driver can retrieve the codes themselves with the onboard diagnostics. Put the key in the on position and watch for the light.The light will blink in a code .FOR EXAMPLE:
If the light blinks 4 flashes then a pause then 3 flashes then .......yep code 43. Easy enough.
Oh yea, by the way A bad intake manifold gasket would be a constant problem which would cause a vacuum leak. ( That's if it effected engine performance) A vacuum leak would be sensed at the Oxygen sensor as a lean condition. Code 44

Try the codes yourself

VW Polo GTI V Reg - Warning Light


Hi!  I believe that is the check engine light.  It means that there is some part of the engine that needs attention.  It can range from routine maintenance (a dirty filter for instance) to a serious problem.  You will have to take it to a dealer for them to diagnose the specific error using their diagnostic computer.
I'm not sure about the Polo but for several VW models the Check Engine Light goes on when the gas cap isn't on tight (there is a sensor that monitors tank pressure).  You may want to check that first.

Hope this helps.
