Question about 2008 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

How do I fix the Variable valve timing on 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
fraud investigations

    I've been all over the internet trying to determine if I can just do it myself. It is sounding like there is alot more diagnositc work involved than once thought. I figured if it was just replacing a fuse or a wire I could handle it. Am I hearing you say it's way more involved? Ugh... that means more $$ as well.

    I seriously doubt you can work on much of anything on todays hi-tech vehicles from 1996 obd2 systems without a 2 or 4 year college degree in automotive technology & a minimum of $15,000 in test equipment not counting the normal 30 to 80 thousand in hand tools

SOURCE: 2004 SATURN VUE HAS PROBLEM BLOWING COLD AIR WHEN

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...

ABS, TCS & SCS lights came on all together and won't go away on 2008 Saturn Vue


You have a wheel sensor failed. Likely on the left rear. I have an 08 Saturn Vue and mine has failed repeatedly. First time Jan 09, then again Jan 10.. and once again in Jan 11. Finally dealt with GM Customer Service, as dealer just keeps replacing the sensor. They claim corrosion. GM CS told them to investigate further, so they replaced a connector and sensor this time. Not holding my breath. Thank god for warranty. Will probably end up getting rid of the car.
