How do you know if you have a bad fuel pump/filter on a 2007 Saturn Vue

My saturn is starting very hard, I have to push in the gas to get it to start. I have been told it may be the fuel filter or fuel pump. It does occassionally act like it's going to stall when I'm driving slower or stopped at a stoplight.

Replace the MAP sensor or check the vaccum and electrical wires to it or idel air control selinoid, if the feul rail near the injectors have a schrader valve like a tire valve stem turn the key all the way on and push it in and see how hard the feul spraycomes out and that will also bleed out the airbubblesif there is any thats if u ever ran out of gas before should do that ever time u run out a strong spray means its good low or no spray its bad

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.

SOURCE: 1997 Saturn SL1 very hard to start

jlwhelen,
I will suggest that perhaps the blue smoke is not purely oil. It sounds like you may have an ignition problem where the engine has a hard time firing until warmed. The blue smoke may be, at least in part, unspent fuel. I realize that a warm engine that uses oil will smoke blue, but excessively rich conditions on startup can result in a similar effect. If the choke circuit is delivering a little extra fuel from a dirty injector, the problem may be worse when starting from cold.
To remedy this, I would suggest a simple replacement of plugs and wires, as well as a fuel injector cleaner through the tank. I would bet money that these simple maintenance points would solve your problem.

Good luck!
Lucky

SOURCE: saturn ion fuel pump

Misnikie32 . .. I just had the same problem around the time you figured out your problem and I just got it fixed yesterday. For almost 3 weeks I had starting problems and I constantly smelled gas. The problem is a safety issue and the car needs to be recalled. The hose that is connected to the fuel pump is cracked. Since the hose is incorporated with the fuel pump, the entire mechanism needs to be changed. Look at spending about 700.00 . I informed saturn and told them my life was at danger. Please contact them on their website and goto your state's attorney general and launch a complaint, as well as the office of defective investigations and the NTSAB (google them). This needs to be brought to their attention and all owners of this car. I googled this and many other people are having this problem. Some are even on this forum. PLEASE DO THIS ! ! ! !

My 2003 Saturn Vue won't start if the engine is not cold. In the morning it starts but if I go out and try to drive a few hours later it won't start until I get off work


Without knowing if there are more things happening, noises, clicks, whirr sounds, or even how hard you drive it...

It typically sounds like a bad or clogged fuel filter... Although I've had some cars do this in the past, once they were heated up and had to wait an hour ow two to start again... that generally meant the fuel pump needed to be replaced.

This is called a Vapor Lock... and try as you might, they will not start

So, before you start going through quite a few external sensors, idle air control motors and egr valves and etc, etc at 85 dollars a pop...

Considering changing the FUEL filter and pour a bottle of gas drier in your fuel tank. You could have some condensation in your fuel and it may be as simple as that.

However if this dont help or the problem starts happening again, I would replace the fuel pump.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

Respectfully

Where is the fuel filter on a 2004 saturn vue 3.5L? The car quit running this morning, tried to start back up but stalled again. Starts with starter fluid, but stalls. Dealer said try the fuel filter...


It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.
