Question about 2002 Saturn VUE
Periodic trany slipping in lower gears. ok when gets up to speed. turn off and sit for a while and prob goes away. autozone troub. code says could be a short or wiring prob. or control solenoid valve assembly ... what and how to check these ... what first?
Could be many things, but once a transmission
slips,even a few times, one day & you continue
to drive it, you ruin it & the clutches burn
Only a complete rebuild along with the electrical,
solenoids or whatever the current issues are, will
be the solution or fix
Wasting your time at auto zone or any parts store
checking for codes. Codes don't tell you what is wrong
or what to do.
You can't work on the car,has to be diagnosed by experience
techs, that have the skills needed & proper test equipment
Do you change trans & power steering fluids on all your vehicles
every 3 years. NO-- Then keep your check book handy

SOURCE: Misfire error on cylinder 1.
How many miles is on the odometer?
Does this happen when the engine is cold (during start up)?
A intake manifold leak will progressively get worst when the engine get to operating temperature (195-210F).
Carbon built up (on the underside) and inside the EGR passage tube can reduce performance at low rpm (1200 to 1800 rpm).
Cleaning up EGR + passage tube carbon built up is a dirty and time consuming task.
Please post the odometer reading on reply.

A little or a lot, if it slips it is done and must be overhauled.
