Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

2003 saturn vue V6 oil filter housing which it's attached to, rotates. Suggestions?

Tire /oilchange place said they tried to remove oil filter. Said housing was rotating, and they could get it off by holding a wrench and then loosening filter. They didn't want to change out filter because they didn't want to be responsible if it started to leak. Suggested I take it back to original place that installed it. Suggestions??

Something is very wrong here. If the shell of the filter housing is loose at the seat the filter WILL LEAK, and getting the filter off is NO PROBLEM. Somebody is BSing somebody here.

check your tire tread, it may be worn in a choppy pattern and causing the noise. if your tires are smooth, then you have a wheel bearing problem

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

Where is the air filter?


Hi, slide under your Vue forward of the driver-side front tire. You oil filter mounts on the lower side of the engine. It's about the same diameter as a coffee cup--without a handle. Around the bottom of the filter, you should see small dimples. You can remove the filter by turning it counterclockwise by hand. If the filter does not turn by hand, use an oil filter wrench to remove it. Drain the oil completely into a drain pan before you remove your Saturn Vue's oil filter.

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!

Change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles, rotate your tires every other oil change, keep tires including spare properly inflated, check and replace air filter when dirty, replace fuel filter every 12,000 miles. make sure your front end is aligned properly, Check and maintain fluid levels for brakes, radiator, transmission, windshield washer fluids check visually for brake pad and rotor wear and replace when needed. Check condition of windhield wiper blades periodically. Check the tension and condition of belts and hoses every oil change.

How do i change the drive belt on a 2003 saturn vue v-6 L81


well its fairlly involved, you must remove the air intake and air box bottom, remove the engine mount,and place a jack under the oil pan with a piece of wood inbetween,otherwise youll crack the very thin oil pan and it will leak,, the remove the bracket on the side of the engine that the mount attached to and then using a 15mm socket pull on the tensioner and the belt will come off,then reassemble
