What do i need to chang oil in a 2004 saturn vue


if you have access to a car ramp the oil plug is located on edge of the oil pan and while under your car you will see the oil filter it all depends on what kind of oil you want sometimes it boils down to budget but remember you get what you pay for

It appears that i have oil dripping from my oil pan area. is there a gasket on the oil pan i need to replace?


oil leaking anywhere on the engine runs down and gets caught on the oil pan lip, builds up runs over and then looks to be an oil pan leak. so what you do is take the thing to a shop with a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, and ask them to put it up on the lift so the rest of the engine can be easily examined for leaks. if there is no other place above the oil pan with a thin layer of oil on it, then most likely the pan gasket is leaking. before you buy the gasket take a good look at any suspension hardware which could obstruct easy removal of the oil pan. it may require lifting the engine up out of its mounts to get the gasket replaced, so simply snugging up the bolts holding the pan on and living with a small leak may be the way to go.

Hello and welcome. here is the instructions for removing the trans filter. you will need to drop the bottom trans pan off to gain access to the filter.


  • Remove the oil pan bolts from only the front and the sides.
  • Loosen the rear oil pan bolts about 4 turns.
  • Lightly tap the oil pan with a rubber mallet or pry in order to allow the fluid to drain.
  • Remove the remaining oil pan bolts.
  • Remove the oil pan.
    Install the oil pan attaching bolts.

    Tighten the bolts to 12 N·m (106 lb in).

    Oil leaking into cooling system but no coolant in crankcase, also oil leaking from engine as it is all over frame and oil pan. engine starts and runs but heater does not get warm...??? 2003 saturn vue with...


    Looks like a head gasket failure. Oil is escaping out of the engine and within the engine into the coolant passageways. The oil pressure system is run at higher pressure than the coolant pressure and fortunately this has so far kept the water from entering the oil and crankcase. I have no faith at all in any after-market product that claims it can repair leaks by simply adding it to the coolant or oil and taking a head off is not a trivial task. It may also be that the head has warped (this would also cause the leak) and this in turn will require it to be re-machined. Head gaskets are not expensive but due to the work involved this could be one occasion when a visit to a machine shop is the best option.

    We have an engine oil leak that the Dealer says he needs to pull the engine to fix it - They estimate upto $ 3000 to fix it. Do you have any information about this.


    your first mistake is going to a dealer to have work done. they always charge a buttload for work, to make up for lost revenue throughout the year.
    but yes, replacing some gaskets can get costly. oil pan gaskets, head gaskets, main seals. and sometimes you need to remove the engine to fix it

    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
