What about your power steering pump? Engine running, if you turn the wheels all the way right or left, check the fluid in power steering reservoir, is it churning? Do you ever check the power steering fluid?
If there is no circulation, maybe one of the power steering lines is blocked? There could be other issues.

SOURCE: When I drive and reach the speed of about 60 mph,

I would start by having the tires carefully inspected and balanced if needed. A tire that has a broken internal steel cord can develop a lump or wave in the tread face which will cause the steering wheel to shake as the vehicle speed increases. Usually a tire that is developing such a problem is very close to failing completely [flat or blow-out] so have them checked as soon as possible. An out of balance tire usually just causes a general vibration or shake but can cause bigger problems depending on how out of balance they might be. Worn tie rod ends or other suspension components can cause a similar shake so have those items checked at the same time. Worn struts usually won't cause the shake you are describing but can cause the car to handle quite poorly and bounce excessively on bumpy roads. Wheel bearings often [but not always] make a grumbling/growling kind of noise as they start to go bad but usually won't cause a shake. A good inspection should quickly pinpoint the cause of the problem

I have a 2003 Saturn Vue 2.2L. The cooling fan is not comomt on when the engine is hot.


Have the coolant temperature sensor checked or replace.
That sensor is tied in with the cooling fans. When the coolant temp increases it turns on the fan.
It is usually located around the thermostat housing or screwed into the engine block with a 2 or 3 wire connector on it.

Having trouble removing right front wheel bearing on my 04 vue i tried tapping, chisels, air chisel, penetrating oil nothing seems to work.


The Saturn Vue should have a bolt-on bearing with integrated wheel hub and ABS. It is held on with 3 bolts.

I assume that you got the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper off. You've removed the 3 bolts thru the knuckle to the bearing. And you have the axle nut off and the axle pushed out or at least lose from the bearing spline.

The bearing can get stuck in the aluminum knuckle pilot diameter. The galvanic corrosion between the bearing and knuckle can lock the bearing into the knuckle pretty tightly. It is not a press fit, it's just stuck. I had one GM bearing that had to be pushed out with a hydraulic press.

Keep soaking with penetrating oil and keep hitting it. Otherwise you'll need to remove the knuckle/bearing from the car and find a press.

Same Problem, warm air at low RPM's 2006 Saturn Vue


I agree with philip, i have not studied the electrical system. but to my best guess the electric fans are tied into the engine cooling system. when the engine is not requesting the fans to come on. then their is very little air passing threw the cooling package. When their is no cool air passing by the condenser this will not draw the heat out of the refrigerant leaving excess heat in the system and when the cab fan blows this is were the excess heat is getting dumped. then at higher speeds their is enough air passing threw the condenser and radiator to cool them both.

I have a 2003 vue and had similar problem. I took it to my garage, and it was wheel bearings. I've had to replace both sets since I bought the vehicle. I found out that they tend to wear through wheel bearings. I also found out that they have strut issues as well.
