Question about 2004 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

Oil pressure gauge

I have a 2004 Saturn vue (3.5L V6 Awd). Just had oil change at Saturn dealer and noticed the oil pressure gauge does not start to register for about 3-4 minutes after a cold start. Saturn service says that is normal, especially when the weather is cold. It's been low teen at night and mid 20's during day recently. I'm not convinced they told me right? My Ford Ranger registers almost immed. after a cold start. What is you opinion?
Thanks for the reply.

They are full of it, u should show oil pressure as soon as the engine starts, this may be a sticky guage or a sender but that advice they gave u is bull, that is for sure, I am a GM technician.

I have a 2004 Saturn Vue 3.5 AWD V6,compression is good on all 6 cylinders ,I had a little oil on 2 spark plugs in the back head cleaned them and it is running good but I have a lot of white smoke coming...


If you are getting a lot of white smoke it would indicate antifreeze is getting into the cylinders. Overheating would indicate that you may have a thermostat problem, check your radiator for fluid level and how the fluid looks. If the car has been severely overheated them likely the head gaskets are bad.

2009 Saturn Vue message flashing "low oil


The obvious answer is the engine has low oil pressure.
Assuming the engine oil level is ok, someone would need to check engine oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to find out if the problem is the engine or the oil pressure switch.

2004 saturn vue at low speed engine rpm up and down


I have the same problem with my 04 v6 awd vue.
The issue i see is with the transmission torque converter going in and out of lockup consistently. I have noticed when i engage cruise control this problem goes away for the most part. Today i turned on cruise at 30 miles per hour after noticing the rpm fluctuation about 400 rpm. change to only about 100 rpm. This has been an issue scene day one from the dealer. no codes, the transmission has not failed nor the torque converter. I think it is an issue with the drive by wire system. when you engage cruise control the foot throttle position sensor is out of the equation. This is my best guess, you can take it with a grain of salt.

Spark plugs on 2002 Saturn vue


just completed a plug removal and install on my '02 awd v6. if you have the time and patience it's straight forward; common sense was most helpful. to gain access to the plugs, both fore and aft, you must remove, in short, everything near to, associated with, the air intake system. common tools plus a 1/4 socket, with 8 inch extension to hold a #10 star bit. these star bolts are under the rectangular plastic plate atop the intake. once you have those out, disconnect all the wiring, carefully. lift the intake out, look for plug covers, fore and aft, ignition assembly lays atop each row of three plugs. with the hands of a surgeon, remove the ignition assembly, and by golly ye shall see your reward. easy from then on.
replaced my plugs with the iridium 'honeys'; marked improvement in starting, acceleration, smoothnes, noise, and gas mileage to the value of + 3.0%. changed out the oil with mobile1 extended performance, changed transmission fluid. took a shower. time involved, 7.0 hrs. dealer be damned,,priceless!
