SOURCE: checking fluid level 2008 saturn vue transmission

  • Step 1 Check the outside temperature. Start the vehicle. Drive at a normal pace for 15 minutes if the outside temperature is above 50 degrees. If the outside temperature is below 50 degrees, drive for an addition 10 minutes.
  • Step 2
  • Park the vehicle in a safe location on a level surface. Place the gear selector in the Park position. Apply the parking brake. Leave the engine running.
  • Step 3 Place your foot on the brake pedal and apply pressure. Move the gear shift lever through each gear pausing 3-4 seconds at each location. Return the gear shift lever to the Park position.
  • Step 4 Allow the engine to run at idle for 3-5 minutes. With the engine still running, pull back on the hood release lever located under the dash to the left of the driver’s side. Lift the hood to its fully opened position.
  • Step 5 Locate the Automatic Transaxle fluid dipstick near the back of the engine. It will have a red loop handle. Grasp the red loop handle and pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 6

  • Hello, a sidenote on how new your car is I would not worry about checking your transaxle fluid at the current time. You do the above following information to check your fluid and a good rule of thumb is to not work under a car while it's running. You can check the level by the old forefinger or pinky trick and if you can feel the fluid in the transaxle with your finger the level is fine. I would highly recommend however to check your fluid with your dipstick. If your vehicle does not have one you will have to run through the steps above and check the fluid with a mirror so you do not burn your fingers. I hopes this information solves your problem. Also a sidenote, dealerships have recalled your vehicle for a transaxle leak if yours is leaking do the check above and tighten the fill plug to a torque specification which can be found in a Haynes or Chilton Auto Repair Manual. If your vehicle is under warranty I would have your dealership correct this maintenance issue for you.
    Wipe the dipstick clean with the rag or paper towel. Insert the dipstick back into the reservoir. Wait 3-5 seconds. Pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 7 Observe both sides of the dipstick. Read the side with the lower level of fluid on the dipstick. If the fluid is in the crosshatched area the level is acceptable. Reinsert the dipstick into the reservoir and close the hood. If the level is below the crosshatched area, more fluid should be added to the automatic transaxle.

    SOURCE: Change spark plugs on 3.0 2003 Saturn Vue

    This is a outstanding question!!! The plugs or wires are not visible from the top or sides of the moter. You just can't see em'!!! You have to remove the large black plastic air intake. Then remove the intake manafold(not too hard to do) to access the spark plugs and wires. Also: After removing all the black plastic air intake stuff, you'll have to remove the coil pack (long black plastic thing that says "Ecotek" on top). The coil pack is removed by disconnecting the wire connector on the driver's side end and then removing four bolts. To lift off the coil pack, you'll have to pull upwards firmly and evenly from both sides, because the spark plug boots or wires are holding onto the spark plugs as well as the coil. With the coil pack removed, look down into the silver channels - there's the plugs. To remove, you'll need a plug socket head and a socket wrench with long extension. To replace the plugs, I use an extra or old spark plug boot to hold the plug and get it started turning into the engine threads. Good Luck!

    Under the intake manifold,  it will need to be removed.  Not too hard to do for the average diy but recommend buying a repair manual as a guide.  you will need a 1/4" drive T30 torx socket with a long extension one of the bolts is hidden but the others are under the black cover on the top of the intake.  you will also need to remove the coil pack held on with torx bolts.  8 or 10 inverted torx socket needed for that.

    Have you tried charging or replacing the battery? If the battery is fully charged you may have a dead cell in the spark plug.

    I have a 2008 Saturn Vue XE AWD 6 cylinder that is only getting about 19mpg highway miles. Does anyone have similar problems and wondering if it is something that can be done to improve this. Thanks!


    You can change the spark plugs and coils, wires for a little better gas mileage. I would say 60,000-70,000 miles. If you are under that, probably still ok. You can try fuel injector cleaner in the tank. Check your tires and make sure they are properly filled up. If the vehicle is out of alignment, it will cause bad gas mileage. Make sure you have no vacuum leaks and make sure your air filter is clear. If you have any questions, just let me know.

    Where are the spark plugs on a 2007 saturn vue 3.5 v6


    This is not correct spark plug replacement for the 3.5 liter Honda engine in the 2004 and newer Saturn Vues. The spark plugs are simply underneath the coil packs right on the the top of the valve covers. You do not need to take off the intake manifold to change the spark plugs on the 3.5 liter v6

    Poor gas mileage in a 2008 Saturn Hybrid Vue


    You are always going to get worse gas mileage with E85 than regualr gasoline.  My sister has a colbalt and she mixes 1/2 gas and 1/2 e85.  The dealer told her she could do this to improve mileage.  I would not try it in your car unless you check with the dealer first, it could mess your engine up if you do it.  If you are getting that mileage with gasoline, then i would change spark plugs to bosch platnium 2 or something that allows more spark.

    How do i change out the spark plugs


    I dont want to seem disrespectful at all, but if you were to crossthread the spark plugs when installing them it would be a very expensive mistake. but if you work on vehicles a little bit it isnt a bad job to do. I guess what I am trying to say if you havent ever done something like that just be careful.
