I am a GM mechanic at a dealership in Texas. I don't see much in the way of problems with this truck. If it has a 4.3 V6 then you have a good engine. The only real problem is intake gaskets leaking coolant. Keep the radiator flushed, and do the regular maintenance and it will serve you well. Good Luck

Why my key won't go into ingnition on my 2004 saturn vue

Hi there sorry for my english hope you will understand me.

About your key problem .. have you notice that you can remove the key while the engine is running ? I guess that you probably removed it too early while stopping the engine , get the tip of the key in it and move it both direction with one hand while shaking the steering wheel in both directions with the other hand. It sounds weird but it will probably unlock the key patient and try couple of times

If it don't work out it is stock and will need replacement , it is a common problem with saturn...

good luck !

Saturn S series runs rough

It is very common on ALL SATURN S series vehicle for ignition module failure. Usually the symptons are running rough and possibly a check engine light with misfire codes-P0300,P0301,P0302,P0303,P0304.
Some people have attampted replacing plugs and wires,even coils and continually have the problem reoccuring. What happens is the ignition module bolts(x4) stretch out through time and corrosion builds up underneath the module causing incorrect spark displacement. In turn this damages the plug wires and even at times the plugs. What needs to be done is replacing plug wires, plugs if needed, the ignition module bolts(saturn dealer item only)and the ignition module-NOT JUST THE COILS.
This should fix your problem.

2003 Saturn L200 Heater Core Part Number

The part number really means nothing as there is no more Saturn. Call a parts store and tell them what you want, or look it up on their website. They will have an inventory part number for it and the company that makes them will have their own part number also. It will be a common GM early 90s part.

My 2001 Saturn L-Series heater blows cold air. How do I troubleshoot the problem?

if the engine is otherwise running well, either your heater core is plugged or the temperature knob cool air flap is stuck open on the heater box. if your core has not already been replaced due to leaking, you might as well go ahead and do that to save yourself the cost of removing and shampooing the carpet when it does start leaking. it will

I started my car and heard a loud pop now a trac off light and my check engine light is on. I know i am about due for a tune up but the engine is shaking and making a loud noise.

sounds like eithor you blew a cylinder or a head gasket might have been a spark plug blow out
look under your hood when the car is running you will see the problem if it is one of theise

other wise 1 plug might have craped and the raw fuel was dumped down the exhaust and you got a backfire

Car won't start

There is a recall on this model for problems with the Engine Control Module/Coil Pack. This causes the engine to not start. Take it to the nearest Saturn dealer and get it repaired free of charge. This problem can eventually burn up your catyletic converter which will lead to much more costly repairs. There are actually 3 recalls on this vehicle. Take it to the dealer and get it taken care of. It will be like driving a new car once the repairs have been made!
