I have a 2004 Vue with a 3.5 engine. The engine misses alot under a load between 1200 and 2000 RPM. the computor print out shows all cylenders missing. Could the traction control thing be causing this or what?? I tried putting fuel injection cleaner in mamy times but no difference. Thank You, Phil

You need to plug it in to an engine diagnostic computer, it is probably a sensor that needs to be replaced. (Coolant temperature sensor is a probable cause) but you should plug in to engine diagnostic computer.
I have the same problem with my 04 v6 awd vue. The issue i see is with the transmission torque converter going in and out of lockup consistently. I have noticed when i engage cruise control this problem goes away for the most part. Today i turned on cruise at 30 miles per hour after noticing the rpm fluctuation about 400 rpm. change to only about 100 rpm. This has been an issue scene day one from the dealer. no codes, the transmission has not failed nor the torque converter. I think it is an issue with the drive by wire system. when you engage cruise control the foot throttle position sensor is out of the equation. This is my best guess, you can take it with a grain of salt.
this is your...man what was that called...it is next to your fire wall..it regulates the high and low side.. any way it is costly and it is a ***** to get to. sorry may have to rev the engine for a while..
Orifice Tube that is what it is called.. man thought i would never forget that.
It's either a carbon tracked spark plug & boot or a faulty fuel injector.They have alot of issues with the ecotec engine with idle concerns due to injectors.If it misses under a load it's more than likely a saprk plug & boot concern
I had the same problem with my 2004 VUE 2wd. There were also some electrical issues like the turn signals randomly not working. I replaced the battery and now the tranny shifts smoothly and the acceleration is much improved. Also, no more electrical problems.
