Question about 2006 Saturn Vue

1 Answer

Sometimes when accelerating, the transmission on my 2006 Saturn Vue shutters and shakes the vehicle pretty hard. I can't seem to replicate the problem at will, but it happens at least once per day. Any ideas? I attempted to check the fluid level, but there doesn't seem to be a dipstick. The closest Saturn dealer is an hour away.

You dont need a saturn dealer, you need a transmission shop. the bands on your transmission are loose and need to be tightened.

My 2008 Saturn Vue has been 'stuttering' during acceleration and sometimes while just sitting still. Spark plugs have been changed and transmission fluid added but neither one helped. Sometimes it happens...


Leave the vehicle at the a repair shop with
a though understanding of why your there,
& what you want resolved
I see a thousand questions a week here, where
people either can't find a shop that knows why they
are there,can't fix much,never road test to confirm a repair,
or the owner takes the vehicle & then complains on a web site
You want it fixed,everything,spend time at the shop,go there
during repairs,ask questions, take notes & go for a 25 mile ride,
before you pay & come home with the car.

If I give my vehicle hard acceleration the transmission seems to slip and the whole car shakes until I let go of the gas and then just do gradual aceleration


sounds like the bands are going out if it is a sealed transmission you may need to have it serviced, and sealed transmissions have to be pumped out fluid and pumped back in

My 2003 Saturn Vue cuts off during acceleration


I am having the same problem with my Saturn Vue 2006. I have been told by a mechanic that the same engine in my vue is used in a Saab vehicle and the Saab vehicle has been recalled for this same problem.
I am very concerned about the safety of driving Saturns with this problem. I have found blog after blog with people reporting the exact same issue in their Saturns.
We need to unite and get GMC to recall these vehicles before someone is killed. Please share this with anyone who has something to add.
Thank you!

Where do i put transmission fluid in my 2006 Saturn Vue?


If you have no leaks dont worry about it. Just get it serviced if its time. Alot of cars are this way now. You need to be under the car to drain and fill. My BMW is this way

2006 Saturn Vue Transmission Fluid Check


Here you go..

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). Models with 2.2L engine: To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

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.
