The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

SOURCE: i can't add transmission fluid to my 2004 saturn vue

I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.

the dipstick is located behind the front transmission mount and its held in by a 12mm bolt. you may need to remove the transmission mount to check the fluid. the color of the dipstick is yellow, make sure the car is in park and fully warmed up to operating temerature and on a level surface before checking the fluid.

The cylinder that activates the throw out bearing is inside the housing for the transmission. You have to pull it anyway.

My 2004 saturn vue is slowly dripping oil only when the car is running from the middle of the engine

this sounds to me like it could be a relatively severe leak from the rear main seal. this is the seal that holds the oil back from leaking out of where the engine block meets the crank shaft. best to have a local technician look at it.

Leaking tranny fluid by the torque converter is this my rear seal?

It is most likely the front seal on the Tranny, or a leaking tranny pan gasket.
The rear seal on the engine would leak motor oil

We have an engine oil leak that the Dealer says he needs to pull the engine to fix it - They estimate upto $ 3000 to fix it. Do you have any information about this.

your first mistake is going to a dealer to have work done. they always charge a buttload for work, to make up for lost revenue throughout the year.
but yes, replacing some gaskets can get costly. oil pan gaskets, head gaskets, main seals. and sometimes you need to remove the engine to fix it

No its internal meaning that its in the bell housing.The bell housing is bolted to the gearbox to hous the clutch befor being bolted to the engine.It has no seal on it.So when your slave cylinder leaks,The fluid drips from the bell housing.And the only way to get at it is to remove the gearbox.

Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.
