Both the 3.0 & 3.5 V6 engines in the Vue use a cam driven by a belt. Both are interference engines and the belt must be replaced at 100,000 miles. Warning: If the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. The water pump is driven by the same belt so I highly recommend you replace it at the same time to save labor cost later on.

When should the timing belt be changed


I want to say it is every 100,000 miles. At the same time you do the timing belt replace the water pump and belt tensioner as well. They may not seem bad but go ahead and do it while being in there. It will save you problems down the road

The manual says that the timing belt on my 2004 Saturn Vue V6 needs to be changed at 100,000 miles. Can I wait until it dies or is the Engine an interference fit with serious problems resulting if it...


I wouldn't,, recommended maintenance is in place for a reason,, and this repair is for a good reason, if the timing belt ( or chain) goes out,, damage can happen to the valves, and pushrods which mean added costs , leaving you stuck where ever it happens to go out,
