Question about 2004 Saturn VUE
Just driving down the street and my car died. I am told it might be the fuel pump. Could this be correct?
If your fuel pump is electrical yes it could be the same thing happened to me some years ago in a ford falcon

It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.

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.

Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

we have a 2003 saturn vue which we installed new tires on and we noticed a noise about 6 months afterwards. it sounded to my wife and i to be loud road noise from the tires. the car was driven for 6 months and we decided the noise was annoing. had the tires checked only to find it was the left front wheel bearing which was replaced and stopped the noise.

SOURCE: How often should I get
you should never need a brake flush, possibly get the brakes bled if you have brake work or replace brake cylinders, master cyl ,brake lines replace, or a brake job. you also dont need power steering flush. If you have work done on the rack and pinion or the pump replaced they will add fluid as needed and bleed air from the system but you shouldnt need a flush on those items. Now for the fuel injection, our so called high tech fuel is suppose to have all those goodies in it, but if you think you need to you can go to the local auto parts store and buy fuel injector cleaner and add it to your tank of fuel every 6-8 fill ups or every two months. I personally would change my fuel filter more often rather than add injector cleaner. Gas is a great grease and grime cleaner in itself as long as it does not sit stagnant for a period of time where it will "tarnish" The idea of a fuel system is to keep it clean from debris with a filter so the spray of the injector does not get clogged or damaged. Injector cleaner only helps clean carbon and varnish deposits, it will not remove a small pin head size rock or other foreign debris,that is the filters job. So the filter is much more important.
