Question about Saturn Vue

1 Answer

12fixlouie here. Have problem with "06" Saturn Vue FWD L61 2.2ll4 engine. 109kmiles This unit starts fine and runs fine for 18 - 22 min. After that you need to "two foot" brake and gas, shift to neutral to keep engine running, because idle drops off to less than 500 to 300 rpm. Measured (engine off) terminal battery voltage equals 12.4v w/lights, blower, radio, brake lights all on. Charging voltage 14.4-14.6 running!! Saturn did diagnostic??? will put new alternator, sparkplugs,battery for $1000!!! Can you give me a few things to check and or change out to fix the low idle problem. 12fixlouie on fixya lmistyrel on aim.

My first question is. Why do they want to replace an alternator, that
puts out 14+ volts? Back to the idle problem, check throttle possition
sensor. It sounds like it's working when the car is cold, but when it
warms up. The temp. sensor tell's the pcm to idle down,the pcm tells
the throttle pos. sensor to idle down. The throttle pos. sensor may be
bringing the idle to far down. The best way to be sure is to get the car
scanned for trouble codes, any autozone/cap or napa will scan it for
free. If the throttle pos. code comes up, replace it and you should be
all set. If you have any questions about this problem. Or another one
you can find me here. Hope I was of some help. Good luck.

Where is the oil filter on the 2007 saturn vue


Hello,

The 2007 saturn VUE FWD 4 uses a cartridge type oil filter instead of the traditional canister.
The location of the oil filter varies, but for your car it is laying horizontally in the front of the engine next to the exhaust manifold.

Take care and good luck

How do i reset the oil light on a 03 saturn vue? i did the turn the key and press the gas peddle 3 times and that didn't work.


The procedure you used is for the 2006 > Vue, and will not work on your 2003. For the 2002-2005 Saturn Vue V4 or V6 - Under the hood you will see a black fuse box behind the battery. Open it up and you will see a red button, it is small and looks like a fuse but on the top it will say Oil-Res. Turn on the ignition & press and hold that button for about 10 seconds. You may want to have a friend sit in the driver's seat and watch for the indicator to start flashing, which indicates you've activated the reset. Turn off the ignition and that will reset the Oil light.
