Question about 2005 Saturn VUE
I have a 2005 Saturn Vue manual trans. The check engine light came on but there are no codes it says" passed no codes found", however it is not running right. It feels like it is stumbling upon acceleration, I thought maybe it was the gas so I put in a gas treatment and a carb/fuel injector cleaner but that has not helped. I have not used up a full tank of gas since this problem started. I now notice a very strong toxic smell and brownish smoke coming from the exhaust. Any ideas??
Stop running this vehicle immediately it sounds as if someone or something has contaminated your fuel either a bad person or a service station that seriously needs to have their gas tanks replaced under ground as they do sometimes leak and water and dirt can be the bi product of what you are experiencing.
I would take the car to a reputable shop and have them analyse the fuel if it is contaminated or if you mistakedly recieved a few gallons of diesel fuel at the last gas station you visited, have them save a fuel sample have them drop the fuel tank and have it flushed completely out, also have the fuel injectors serviced using a high detergent injector cleaner along with flushing the fuel lines.
If all this seems to have happened right after your last gas station filling event I would contact the statios area Rep. and present them with the entire bill for repair, this is not a unique problem to only your vehicle it has been seen time and time again for years.
Hope this helps.
