4 cylinder is located in front of the engine compartment.

You will need a 15/16" socket to remove the cover and the filter (it is attached to the cover).

Now, standing at the front of the vue, with the hood open, look just to the left of the battery box and down. You should see the large socket cap. There is a notch in one of the intake hoses for you to get an extension on the socket. Unscrew that cap and remove the old filter. replace with the aftermarket filter CH9018(Fram) or equivilant.

Make sure to change oil also, unless you are running extended service synthetic and only changing the filter.

Why is my 2002 L-Series Saturn transmission is slipping or jerking ?

If its an automatic trans check the fluid. If its black instead of red your trans is toast. If color is ok check oil level with engine running and trans in neutral (park)

That car doesn't have them. Anytime you need to find information on filters, Fram has a great parts finder; they also include where the part is located on the car.

2001acura cl trans slip third

Honda is known to have issues with the transmission on Acura and Honda Accord with cars build between 1999-2002.
The reason is that those transmissions does not have an internal transmission oil filter built in and as the clutches start to wear down the oil becomes contaminated.
The first step is to make a complete transmission oil change ( DO NOT FLUSH THE TRANSMISSION IT IS A BIG NO ).
Use only Acura ZF1 from Honda, I will strongly recommend to install an external transmission oil filter.

2002 saturn sl ohv - ticking noise coming from under valve cover.

Check to see the oil level in motor is adequate - if its due 4 an oil change use a light synthetic oil & see if this makes a difference - otherwise U will need the to have the valves shimed up - not that expensive.....

Where is the transmission filter located in a 2002 Saturn SL1 car?

It is actually on the outside of the transmission on top parallel to the ground. It is toward the front of the car and is a large oil filter looking spin on filter.

There is no pan on an S-series car, simply a dipstick, external filter, and drain plug. Pretty much like changing the oil on your engine, actually easier!

Oil change on Saturn L-Series, how to?

same as any car.. climb underneath.. you'll see a pan with a bolt either on the side or the corner, unskrew that and the oil drains, then you unscrew the oil filter( cylindrical) it will be either right behind the oil pan(thing thats draining oil or on the side of your block) dip your finger in oil and coat gasket around new oil filter, screw it in where the old filter was ****DONT FORGET TO PUT THE DRAINAGE PLUG(the bolt you unscrewed) BACK IN**** then add 5 quarts drive!!

The oil filter is most easy to get from under the vehicle. If you have a jack, lift the front passenger side of the car enough to crawl behind the front passenger tire. The oil filter will be on the back of the engine right above the drive axle.

ATTN: The oil filter can be easily mistaked for the transmission filter which is located on the front of the engine on the drivers side.

I am unsure the the exact specification of oil capacity. You can find it in the owners manual or ask the guy at the auto parts store they can look it up. I would put in 3.5,start it let it run for ten seconds then shut it off and check the oil level and add if needed. It wont take more than 4.5
