Sorry. Not enough info here. Will it not start? Starts and will not run? Does starter turn the engine over?

Testimonial: "Yes. It sounds like it wants to start but just won't spark. It's almost like it's not getting enough gas. I replaced the battery, alternator, thermostat, and crank shaft sensor. Just had time up & oil change too."

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: changing spark plug in a saturn vue 2004

I'm not technical but I changed them :) I removed the element attached to the airfilter coming over the top of the engine. I used a srew driver and a 10mm ratchet -- The three in the back are a pain in the arse so... but not hard.

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.

I have a 2004 Saturn Vue 3.5 AWD V6,compression is good on all 6 cylinders ,I had a little oil on 2 spark plugs in the back head cleaned them and it is running good but I have a lot of white smoke coming...


If you are getting a lot of white smoke it would indicate antifreeze is getting into the cylinders. Overheating would indicate that you may have a thermostat problem, check your radiator for fluid level and how the fluid looks. If the car has been severely overheated them likely the head gaskets are bad.

Rough running and sounding 2006 saturn vue


Have you tried charging or replacing the battery? If the battery is fully charged you may have a dead cell in the spark plug.

I can't locate where the spark plugs are for a 2006 saturn vue,4cy.Could you tell me where they are located?


They are located in the head.To gain access you need to remove the cover on top of the engine and unplug the ignition module once these are removed the plugs are in the cylinder head and accessible with a 5/8 spark plug socket and extension. Some ecotechs have an additional plastic cover that need removed before you can access the coil cover and ignition module.

97 saturn sl2 died while driving , pulled first spark plug boot and found filled with oil


The head gasket needs replaced. This particular Saturn is known for having this exact problem, and 9 out of 10 times, replacing the head gasket fixes it. I just did it myself for $35.

Go to checker/autozone and get a head gasket (should just need the gasket and not the entire kit) and a tube of RTV silicon grease to help make the seal.

Unhook everything from the engine (plugs, wires, etc, and unscrew the head. There should be about 10 or so screws surrounding the black plastic head cover. You'll find things a mess in here, but clean it up best you can. Remove the old gasket and clean the entire gasket area completely and make sure its dry. Put down your RTV grease, the new gasket, some more RTV, and screw the head back on. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SCREW IT TOO TIGHT. The screws only need to be snug. Tighten it like you would a spark plug. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. Might run like **** the first half mile or so.

How to preform a tune-up on my 2009 Saturn Vue


It has a maintenance recomendation from the manufacturer for replacement of the spark-plugs at 100,000 miles. You don't list mileage or V6 or L4 cylinder. Make sure engine is cold because the cylinder heads are aluminum and can be damaged if plugs are removed hot or overtightened upon reassembly. Remove spark-plug wires and replace spark-plugs. Sometimes the wires break when you remove them and will require replacement. If you coat the inside of the wires where they connect with the plugs with dielectric grease it will help prevent the wires from breaking upon future disassembly.

What would cause my1999 Saturn sl1 not to start after a new head gasket was put on? Ok so today we replaced the head gasket on my 1999 Saturn Sl1 single cam. We made sure the timing chain was put back on...


Check the cam/crank sensors. Also, if the car happens to have a distributor, make sure it is not 180 degrees off. If this does not help, then do a compression check. Remember, and engine only needs three things to run. Fuel, Spark, and Compression. (in order of course.) The firing order for your engine is 1,4,3,2.
