Won't go above an idle

Started to leave a friends house tonight and my Vue would not go above an idle. Will idle in gear and move along slowly. Engine light is also on.
Thanks,

All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.

Hi, This sounds like the fork which is just inside the top of the gearbox has either bent or part of it is broken but it is catching the gears hence the wait until it works! if you are happy & know about gearbox layouts you can look yourself, otherwise recommend you take it to the garage as it will only get worse & one day it will not work at all. Please leave me feedback, best wishes, Malcolm Campbell.

My 2002 saturn vue won't go into gear


Sir ,
Kindly tell us whether your engine starts up properly to idle . If yes , then your problem is with the transmission system or with the clutch plates . If the clutch plates are too empty , the gear would be almost stuck . If the car is in N-neutral , try pushing it and while moving slightly try to change the gear . Engine oil and transmission oil should be checked up regularly .
At present situation you will have to have your gear system unjammed or opened up by a professional and have your gear box replaced or checked for jammed gears which is pretty time consuming and difficult job . Else you will have to replace the clutch plates and youre ready to fly again .
Thanking you , Dixon Dominic

If the shifter moves but does not feel like it is trying to put car in gear the cable that goes from the shifter to the transmition could have broke or came loose. If that happened while driving the gears may have tried to shift when tension was released from the cable.

Need the torque value and pattern for an oil pan replacement on a 2003 Saturn Vue 4 cyclinder?


There no exact procedure.
What you always want to do with something like this is to work diagonally in small increments.
So hold the pan up while you get 2 opposite bolts started, then start all of them. Then slowly tighten until resistance.
What you do not want to do is move sequentually along the bolts because that will push a bulge in the gasket.
You want to work at least in quarters, and in at least 3 increments of tightening.
The last tightening should actually be the next day, if you want to do it perfectly, because gaskets will give over time. But will break or crush if you move to quickly. The ideal with some like cork, used to be to presoak them. But that is not usually recommended any more.
A torque wrench is not really that much of a help because it encourages people to move too quickly, or crush the gasket if they move too slowly. You are better off simply getting a feel for it.
If you are just learning on your own car, just check it a week later. If some came loose, you did not tighten enough.

Vw polo 1997 999cc often idles eratically


First- lets change engine coolant sensor/ECT/ and you will be very surprised.Black head with four pins.Be very carefull when change it because there is pressure into coolant system.First-open slowly the cap of engine coolant tank.Then tighten again to safe coolant.Unplug the sensor,remove the pin and pull out the sensor.If the "O"ring/old one/ is still inside-take it out.

Will it idle normally? Will it move in gear slowly? If it is only affected when you try to move faster it could be a plugged catalytic converter. Or a bad throttle position sensor. Not sure.
