Question about 2008 Saturn VUE
Check engine light came on. Had it tested at a Jiffy Lube who told me that it is coming up that something is wrong with the VVT (Variable Valve Timing) or VTC. They told me that this has to do with the cooling system for the oil. I would like to buy part and fix myself.
Jiffy Lube is not a diagnostic shop
Take to a local repair shop that has been
in some place for 25 years
That is not something you can to yourself
The codes are used to diagnose the faults
I would suggest you never use a Jiffy lube or
other quick lube places,they could ruin your vehicle
& all of them have for decades ,been subject to many

did you check if the cooling fans are working? this is very important, because they lower the pressure of the freon before passing throughout the expansion valve and getting into the evaporator,more pressure means highter temperature, , of course when you are driving the air flow throughout out the condenser lowering the freon temperature in the condenser and lowering the freon pressure at the high side, tha's way the temperature inside the car is lower ... you can have a similar problem if the condenser is partially plugged..hope this was very helpful...

The car computer has detected a malfunction. You need a tester that wiil give you the OBD2 code corresponding to the malfunction.

Too, make sure to repost what code it is before buying anything.
