My friend I just paid $510 bucks (diagnostic, tow, and labor) and problem has not been fixed as yet......It sound like you have an overheating ECM and will not run or even start until it cools down.
My friend who just raped me....says to prove that is the problem, pour Ice water directly onto the ECM unit....it wont hurt it as it is a sealed unit.....cost to find out? $0 ha ha try...you never know.
If it starts after a few minutes of pouring water on it ...then you know what to do.......The new ECM...cost $979.00 plus labor of around $200....HOWEVER, you can send your old ECM in and in three days they will repair it, re-flash it and pay shipping and handling both ways for a total of..... get this...$225.00 and that includes 1 year warrantee.

GM's have issues with fuel pumps. Try spraying quick start or brake cleaner into the throttly body when it doesn't start. If it now starts then you will know its a fuel issue. If it still does not start then you have an ignition issue. The crank sensor, the ignition modules and possibly a temperature sensor could be the problem.

Saturn vue will start but will only stay runnuing about twenty minutes then stalls wont start


Does the car loose power before stalling or does it simply die without warning? If it loses power first, you're likely looking at a fuel pump or fuel system problem. If it just dies, you probably have an ignition problem. Does the check engine light come on before it dies?

Bad idle on 2002 Saturn Vue


make sure you have no hoses on the engine that fell off listen for a hissing at idle. If all ok and you checked for codes which should be done before any parts are replaced then the most likely cause is the Idle Air Control Valve. (IAC). IAC's usually wont set a code.

Where can I get a wiring diagram for a 2003 saturn vue? After turning the air off, and the knob setting to zero, then turning the car off, I can hear the fan running for some time (like 10 minutes)...


That is the normal if your taking about the radiator ran, as long as the engine is hot, the radiator fan will run till the engine cools down enough for the temperature sensor to turn off the radiator fans. Your Saturn is 2003 and if you have not serviced the cooling system it may be time. The orange antifreeze has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles and the green antifreeze has a life of 1 year or 30,000 miles. If the antifreeze has not been replaced, it may be a good thing to have the system flushed out with Preston radiator flush and then the antifreeze replaced with a 50/50 mix (water/antifreeze). If your not sure how to mix the antifreeze, you can buy them 50/50 premixed, With then new coolant, your engine can transfer the heat much better and will cool down faster. Note, too much water will boil over and too much antifreeze will gel up causing over heating. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.
