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: 2002 Saturn Vue won't start

Non-start situations basically boil down to two things: No Fuel, or no spark.

I you are looking to throw a part at it, start with the crank sensor. They are cheap and not too hard to replace.

A full diagnostic approach would be to determine if it was a fuel or a spark problem. Check fuel pressures with a fuel pressure test guage: Low fuel pressure indicates a bad fuel pump or a bad fuel presssure regulator. Lastly on the fuel side, check t see if the injectors are getting a signal to fire, usually done with something called a noid light, I believe.

Spark diagnosis begins with first determining the condition, then finding the cause. Bad coil, loose wires, even the crank sensor are all suspect. A good repair manual with a flow chart is probably the best procedure to follow.

In my case, my manual only had a passing reference to the crank sensor and no diagnostic procedure to test it or even lead me to it. I found the solution through extensive web searches. Once I replaced it, all was well.

Yup. The throttle body connectors have a history of failing on these cars. Replace the throttle body and the wire connectors that go to it, and you're back in business. Not terribly difficult and you can get the parts from any dealer. Saturn actually has a bulletin out on this problem but they won't cover it unless you're under warranty - no recall for this.

SOURCE: what are the steps in changing spark plugs on a

I think you bought the dreaded Opel v6 in your Saturn. If it has six rubber hoses on the intake tubes, thats the Opel. A couple of years later, Saturn started using Honda v6's. A royal pain to replace the plugs, suggest a repair shop because the intake has to come off.

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.

A2002 saturn vue shut off going 65 mph on hiway engine turns over but want crank

Hi Wayne:
2 possible problems.....
- No spark
- No fuel.
I'd suggest that you pull a plug lead and check for spark. No Spark, chase ignition problem like maybe failed CPS.
If you have spark then it has to be fuel. Injector signal not happening. TPS failure?
Just some ideas.
Hope they help.

The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2002 Saturn Vue V-6 stalls and taks afew minutes to restart.No check engine light. What is the cause

With no engine codes, there are a few things to check.
If your Saturn has over 50K a normal maintenance routine should include a fuel filter replacement, fuel injector cleaning and throttle body cleaning.
If that has been performed, you should have the fuel pump pressure checked. A good pressure reading should be 50 to 60 lbs. If it does not meet that specification, you need to determine if it is pressure regulator or fuel pump related.
Start at the beginning and let me know the status of the cleanings the engine you have and the mileage and we can go from there.

The code doesn't say that the O2 sensor needs to be replaced, it is telling you the O2 is showing that the fuel system is either to rich, (to much fuel) or to lean (not enough fuel), so the sensor is not the issue, most likely something is either wrong with the fuel injectors such as dirty nozzles or there is a vacuum leak or one of the fuel control sensors like the MAF has a problem, it can and is very difficult to sort this out, the Saturn dealer has the diagnostic equip to get the root cause of the problem, are they the ones who did the work? if not take it to Saturn and even though they cost more they won't spend as much time to find the problem, outside shops can't afford this special testing gear, cost is way to high, about $50,000 for the electronic service bay diagnostic systems Saturn has. One last point the computer or PCM as we call it is very rarely the problem, about 4% of the time in fact, very low failure rate.
