SOURCE: transmission problem

Two possibilities, one the valve body needs to be replaced. This is very common, and the usual symptoms are delay into reverse, and sometimes second also. The other is a loose input shaft nut. This has become more common on the 2000 to 2002 models, im not sure why though. The nut can be accessed by removing the transmission end cover. The input shaft is the one on the left, it uses a thin wall 23mm socket. The old nut should be removed and discarded, install a new nut and torque to spec (yes this is very important) then reinstall the end cover which is actually harder than it sounds. In the case of the valve body you need to drive normally up to 20 miles to reset the transmission adaptive settings. The input shaft nut does not require this, but it is a good idea. To clear the adaptives you will need to disconnect the battery for about 10 min.

My 2003 L300 Saturn is shutting off while I am driving. It will eventually start but usually I have to wait anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours before the car will start. I have had many problems - so far...


I've read that these symptoms can be caused by a bad crank position sensor. It is right by the oil filter housing. Maybe it was damaged during the oil change.

I have an 03 saturn vue, 2wd with auto trans. When driving, usually at less than 2 miles the engine shuts down at about 500 rpm like when stopping for a red light. Have to disconnect battery to reset...


sounds like a throttle sensor fault do to the fact that the saturn vue doesnt idle at 500 normally its uaually between 600-800. i suggest getting it hooked to a diagnostic machine to find wat the codes are cause im sure it will be several.

Car stopped running, engine light on the dash was on about 200 mi


there is no way to know for sure without some troubleshooting and since your engine light is lit which im assuming is the check engine light you can have someone with an obd scanner pull the codes and go from there that is pretty much your only option at this point
