SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: oil filter

The oil filter on these models is a by-pass model. If I remember correctly, it is a Purolator 9018. It does not "look like an ordinary oil filter. If you are facing the front of your engine. it is just to the right of center, and down. It has a 32mm lug on top of the container that hold the filter. Use a 12-24" socket extension with a socket wrench to get it started. Once it is started, (remember, lefty loosey, righty, tighty) then you can undo the rest of it by hand.

Pull the top completely off, the filter will still be attached. Pull (yank) the old filer off the top housing, and install the new one. Start the threads by hand, and tighten to 20"lbs (just past hand tight).

SOURCE: 2007 saturn vue 4 cylinder - change oil

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
Good Luck

SOURCE: Where is the transmission filter on 2004 saturn

If you have the 3.5L engine the transmission filter is not serviceable unless you remove the trans and take it apart. All you can really do is change the fluid about every 60k.

How do you remove a oil filter cap when its stuck?

First make sure you have the right tool to remove it and try again and make sure you turn counterclockwise (yeah.. it happens), then if it is a plastic oil filter cap you can try to heat it with a hair dryer , it should do the job. Plastic cap are not supposed to get stuck ; or it was dirty when put back, or the O ring broke and the cap got stuck, if you can't take it off at all have a quick run to the garage they'll remove it for you.

How do i get to the thermostat on my 2002 saturn vue v6 3.0 ltr

First you will need to remove the intake plenum, then the lower intake.

Remove the hose from the thermostat inlet housing.

Remove the bolt that holds the extension housing to the head near the oil dipstick.

Carefully jack up the passenger side of the engine and remove the t-stat extension housing.

Remove the thermostat housing bolts and remove the housing.

These are a real pain in the captain s quarters!

Where's the oil filter on a 2002 l series saturn

4 cylinder is located in front of the engine compartment.

You will need a 15/16" socket to remove the cover and the filter (it is attached to the cover).

Now, standing at the front of the vue, with the hood open, look just to the left of the battery box and down. You should see the large socket cap. There is a notch in one of the intake hoses for you to get an extension on the socket. Unscrew that cap and remove the old filter. replace with the aftermarket filter CH9018(Fram) or equivilant.

Make sure to change oil also, unless you are running extended service synthetic and only changing the filter.

Oil Filter

First which engine do you have? If you have the Ecotec 2.4 4 cylinder you should be able to use a 32 millimeter socket with an extension. Some oil will run off of the filter but should not be real hot. Drain all of the oil from the engine first. Chilton's is a good manuel to use.
