Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

Open Question

DEX-CVT additive According to 2003 Vue maintenence schedule, I need to add DEX-CVT additive to transmission oil. Does anybody know how to do it? as you know there is no transmission oil level stick for this car. Somebody mentioned doing it from transmission oil breather cap. I do not know where it is either.

All Transmissions get the fluid changed at 30,000 miles

I really am not familliar with Hybrids,but if the Dealer
told you 70,000 miles,you can be rest assured that, that
is at the high end,mileage wise,as they usually tell you
that it never gets changed or changed at 100,000 miles

Both of which most trans fail long before ,along with
steering racks ,because of no fluid changes.

I'm guessing it takes special fluid

There are plenty of web sites to answer all
those questions any way you want.

Notice:
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of

How to check tranny fluid in a 03 Saturn vue 4 cylinder 2.2 liter


if you cannot find a dip stick near the engine or the transmission then it will not be an open system. transmission dip sticks are coloured red/yellow and have trn on the handle. If it is a closed system then there is no way of checking unless there is a oil change done in which case the pan is removed and refitted and the correct amount of fluid is sucked back into the transmission.

Does anybody know if or where the transmission dipstick is located at. 2003 saturn VUE 2.2L 4-cylinders


If you do not see it in the usual location between engine & transmission,out of the transmission, it is a sealed system. You need to go to a dealer or shop to have it checked. It has a special procedure to check & refill it.

How do you put Transmission fluid in a 2004 6 cyl vue


First, you MUST verify if this has the CVT (continuously variable transmission) installed. If so, it requires special fluid along with anti-foam additive. Probably stocked only by the dealer. DO NOT add other transmission fluid to a CVT.

Mileage for next scheduled maintenance 2003 Acura 3.2 TL


id say that when the car hits around 55,000 miles giving it around 10,000 to use the oil to the fullest also change the filters,sparkplugs and wires, and add some kind of gas tank cleaner to keep the car running strong :)

My engine make a sound like there is no oil in the car but after a few minutes it stops. Do i need a heavier oil


No, check the oil level and you can add Lucas engine oil additive. The Lucas oil will add fluid retention to your oil and will keep the piston slap to a minimal. It's common on newer cars with high tolerance engines like yours, and if the engine was not warmed up prior to driving it hard will cause the engine to have piston slap much worst throughout it's life. You can do a search on GM piston slap problems to give you some more information to the noise your describing. There are a few things that can help, add Restor engine oil additives and Lucas engine oil to your regular engine oil service maintenance time. This will help with the waring up the engine before you go for your drive, good rule is the engine is warm enough when you start getting some heat from the heater. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know this helps your Saturn. It has for many on here with the same problem.

The maintenance light on my accord 1991 turned red does this mean i need a tune up oil change which has been more that 7000 miles or am i looking at something that will cost me alot


THE LIGHT COMES ON TO LET YOU KNOW WHEN MAINTENENCE IS COMING DUE OTHER THAN OIL CHANGES. SUCH AS, TIRE ROTATIONS, TRANSMISSION SERVICE, ETC. ROUTINE MAINTENCE ACCORDING TO APPROXIMATED MILAGE. IT SHOULD HAVE A BUTTON ON THE DASH TO THE LEFT OF THIS LIGHT THAT CAN BE PUSHED IN WITH A PEN TO RESET. REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL FOR SCHEDULED ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ACCORDING TO YOUR OVERALL MILEAGE
