Question about 2002 Saturn VUE
2003 Saturn LW300. My wife was running errands with no problems. She stated the car and tried to accelorate and there was no power and she could not exceed 10 MPH with the accelorator to the floor. Took it to a mechanic and he states that he is getting numerious nonsence messsage from the Control unit and is not sure what the problem is. The engine check light is on and has been for a while.
The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. However, as you are facing power issue, it can be due to bad plug, bad fuel injector or a bad EGR valve. The EGR Valve is an integral part of engine’s emission and ignition systems. Now your car will be running on a predetermined program which causes more emissions and low mileage. All 1996 and newer vehicles use a "D" style plug-in connector that connects to the code reader. On most vehicles the connector is located at the driver's compartment. Once the code reader is plugged in you can retrieve trouble codes. These codes are used to diagnose and repair the vehicle, as well as clearing the trouble codes. An engine trouble code reader is an easy to use tool and is a worth for investment for future repairs as well.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
