It's most likely the clutch slave cylinder. Something has to be leaking somewhere -- maybe you just can't see it or it isn't dripping onto the ground yet.

2003 Saturn Vue with 151000 miles on it, leaking clutch fluid and won't shift.


The leaking component must be found and replaced or repaired. I dont know how a "garage" could have bled the line with a leak in the system. Take it back, get your money refunded or make them find the leak and fix it.

I crunk my car and then the gears want go into gear. The clutch went all the way to the floor. What could be the problem?


If you have low miles its most likely the slave cylinder. Its kinda like a master brake cylinder but its a smaller unit that is used for the clutch. Make sure the reservoir is full as they can leak. If its full it may be shot. If its empty its also shot and is leaking. Fill it up if its empty just to see if the clutch works so so. If it gets better then repalce the slave cylinder.

Is your driving primarily city?
You may want to check to see if the clutch master cylinder reservoir is full. If it is not full you may have a leak or the clutch friction disk is worn. If the fluid is at the correct level, you might consider having the fluid flushed and refilled.

The slave cylinder will have to be replaced and air bled from the system to make this repair.

2004 Saturn Vue shifting problem


You should probably check the shifter cable. I had the same thing happen and then I couldn't shift into 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears. Then the cable snapped and I had to replace it. Be careful "man-handling" the shifter. If you break the shift linkage at the base of the shifter it's about $45 from the dealership. It's cheap plastic and doesn't take much to break. If you really want to know if it's the shift cable and not the gearbox crank the engine, have someone hold the clutch, disconnect the shift cables from the box, and manually shift the gears. If they move smooth, it's probably your cable which would mean there's a kink in it somewhere. You can't fix that. Depending on the VIN you're looking at anywhere from $189 (what mine cost with tax) to a little over $200 (from the dealership brand new). Talk to the parts desk at a Saturn dealership and they can tell you which one you need. Hope this helps
