Question about Saturn Vue

1 Answer

2002 Saturn VUE. Just had catalytic converter and 02 sensor replaced 10/4. Now car does not want to go when in drive,will only move in low. Worse after stopping for light. This does not happen all the time occasionally. Was told it was a transmisson problem and no one wants to touch it since it is a complicated engine. Is there anything else that it could be.

    CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK. FLUID LEVEL SHOULD BE ON FULL MARK. TRANSMISSION DIP STICK LOCATED NEXT TO THE IGNITION COIL. AND TRY FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE FIRST.SEE IF HELPS IF NOT TRANSMISSION WORN OUT.

    Could it be the transxale sensor? How hard are these to replace and how much does it usually cost???

  • Jonah Oneal Oct 08, 2010

    COULD BE TRANSMISSION FLUID PRESSURE SOLENOID OR THE 1 - 2 SHIFT SOLENOID. YOU HAVE TO GET VECHICLE SCANNED SHIFT SOLENOIDS CAN COST AT LEAST 80.00 OR LITTLE MORE. GETTING VECHICLE SCANNED ABOUT $100.00.DEALERSHIP HAS TO HOOK A SPECIAL SCANNER TO TRANSMISSION THAT CAN DIAGNOSIS ALL SHIFT CONTROLS SOLENOIDS CIRCUITS.

I have a 2002 chevy impala I changed the 02 sensor and my check engine light is still on and reading the same 02 sensor


You should have a primary and secondary O2 sensor, upstream and downstream. Pre-Catalytic converter and Post-Catalytic converter.
Which one did you replace?

I have a 2002 Saturn vue an sometime it wont pick up speed


Is it a 4 cylinder engine with automatic? Could be that cvt transmission. They are problematic. Or could be a partially plugged catalytic converter in your exhaust.

2002 saturn vue cylinder 1,3,5 misfiring when swapped coil pack it went away now cyl 2,6 misfiring.


having PO 304 = Misfire cylinder 4,PO 306 = Misfire cylinder 6, as I read above you have done the most. The thing that you have missed is to check whether the Catalytic Converter is faulty or not. To get an idea check whether you have a smell like rotten eggs at the end of the exhaust,you start having problems with cat and needs replacement. My advice before you go for a cat replacement is good to visit an MOT center and check your emissions and then you decide,

I have a 2007 saturn 4 cyl awd vue. When I come to a stop, the engine idles down and sometimes stops...


First I would check the air filter, if it's real dirty replace it. To check and see if it is the filter. remove it and drive the car. it your problem stops. replace it, you don't want to drive without it for to long. If it persists, try cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor. And if it still persists, have the catalytic converters checked. All of these things are pointing to air reduction for the engine. if there isn't enough air flow threw the engine it starts with the symptoms you have now and gets progressively worse.

What does a CO2 sensor look like on a 2003 4 Cylinder Saturn Vue and how do you replace it?


I think you are looking for an O2 (oxygen) sensor. It looks sort of like a spark plug, but it has a low voltage wire permanently attached to it, often with a latching-type connector with a few inches. It's mounted on the exhaust pipe between the manifold and the catalytic converter, or right on the exhaust manifold. Some models have another one at the outlet of the catalytic converter.

When I need to replace one, I soak the threads with Liquid Wrench the day before, and I take the car for a drive to heat up the Liquid Wrench (your regular commute or an errand run will do the trick). When I return, I add some more Liquid Wrench. The old sensor generally comes out without a lot of trouble with this treatment. The hardest part may be getting a wrench (metric) on it with enough space to turn. Before you remove the sensor, study the connector to see how the plastic latch unlocks. If you use an after-market replacement designed to splice into the original wire, be sure to use a crimp-type splice rated for high temperature environments. "Twist and tape" is not reliable enough for this task.
