Question about 2008 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

What does P0496 mean on a Saturn Vue?

Whenever putting gas into my car, it acts as though it is flooding & doesn't want to start. I sometimes pat the accelerater and it then starts. However, after it finally starts then it starts up fine every time after until the very next time I put gas in it. It does the same thing each time I refill the tank with gas. Please help enlighten me on what the problem may be. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Signed, With My Best Regards

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 2003 Saturn Vue WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID REFILL

If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps

Is this truck carbuerated or throttle-body injected? If carbuerated, I'd put in a new carb kit...and be sure to replace the accelerator pump. Ethanol in gas today wreaks all sorts of havoc with older vehicles because the rubber and plastic parts manufactured back then were not designed to deal with the problems caused by ethanol. After rebuilding your carb, buy a product called Seafoam and add it to your gas tank at the rate of 1oz per gallon of gas. It will partially offset the problems caused by ethanol.

have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

The car starts but dies as soon as you put your foot on the accelerater and then won't start again. The battery is fine and it's not the timing belt any suggestions please?


Sound like fuel problem,Vehicle needs a set amount of pressure to spay out of the injectors,this atomization ensure proper comustion,If it was MAF(mass air flow) obviously you would be able to restart,but would complain about hesitation,When you step on the gas you apply a load on the engine and a good working fuel pump ensure it meets that load3_17_2012_7_10_37_pm.jpg
