2009 Saturn Vue XE, ABS/TCS/Stabilitrak lights on.


The Wheel Hub Brg is 162.79 at Rock Auto.Com
The sensor 30 to $55.00


Start using Google,Rock Auto & You Tube Video-- to
educate yourself-- before approaching these repair shops

From what is see on Rock- the speed sensor is not part of
the bearing assy on any of the 4 motors

If you can't lay under there to replace your own sensor,
if that is the only problem,I don't have any more to say
You don't need a shop to do that

Have a neighbor or relative do it

There was a problem with 95-99 Saturn junction blocks. Loose fitting to pin connections in the actual connectors pulling loose which would create a similar symptom. Both under the instrument panel and in the engine compartment. You might be able to get a copy of the TSB from the Saturn dealer it is Bulletin No 03-08-45-001 issued May, 2003 Good luck.

1998 saturn 4 cyl. when the engine is cool it starts fine. but after running for a short time and turn it off i cannot start it right away. i have to wait for 20 minutes or so. the starter solenoid will...


The problem may not be the engine operating temp., but rather the starter solenoid. I have experienced the same problem with Chev. P.U.'s that have the solenoid mounted on the starter. By changing the contacts in the solenoid, the problem went away. If possible take the starter to a reputable auto electrical shop, and have them check it.

I changed the oil, how many quarts should i put back in. i have a 92 sl1 i believe. 4 door, sohc


With a filter change along with the changing of oil. I would start with four quarts, than start the engine let it run for a second. After that turn it of check the oil, and top off as necessary. Roughly guessing I would say it holds about 4 1/4 quarts. Or could take up to five, its safe to start engine after four quarts. BE SURE to start engine after four quarts for 10-20 seconds, and then turn off to recheck. Too much oil can be catastrophic. (if no oil is showing on the dipstick than it is more than one quart low. The lowest point on dipstick represents one quart low, the middle is half a quart, and full is full) :)

Form the saturn..........when starters age they tend to have problems when engine hot.You need to replace the starter.
As for the wagon it sounds like some sort of ignition problem if it's turning but not starting........I have seen o2 sensors cause this behavior. However to be sure you need to obtain an OBDII code reader to be positive of the issue.
Thanks for choosing FIX YA!

92 Saturn Coupe


Hi, the clunking sounds like a constant velocity joint (C V joint). It is usually better to replace the whole shaft (half shaft). Yes there are 2.

The check engine light can be checked at any Autozone or similar store. They will put an ODB2 scanner on it for free. Thier diagnostic machine will give them a code similar to code 34 or something like that. This is where they mess up. They don't know what that means. You may need to get the code and do a little searching yourself to get an acurate meaning. DO NOT BELIEVE THE AUTOZONE EMPLOYEE INTERPRETATION ON THE DIAGNOSTIC. Do the search yourself.
Good luck and let me know how it turns out. James
