Why have a BMW?
A friend had one and had a problem that took BMW dealership 5minutes to fix, after they told him to take it to the closest dealer as his dealer had relinquished the franchise. The closest Dealer was now about 800km away
Yes its both, your ignition in that year had problems they had to reposition the ECM and it had alot of ICM failure, with a key in igition problem, There no saturn dealer, so GM dealer are your only source, 2004 Saturn was declared a lemon due to transmission failure, and ICM failures rates
Something is wrong, but usually not six failures. Typically one failure causes other items to become out of spec, but not actually be malfunctioning....Yes, you may need another mechanic, or <<shudder>> the dealer.
One option is to have the dealer just diagnose the issue, and get your mechanic to fix the issue.
My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.
is it a vti trans,,,if so dont mess with it take it to the dealer, if its not drop the pan(messy) change the filter and put the pan up and fill it from the top plug, 7qts,the only way to drain the fluid is to drop the pan,,but if its vti dont do it, doesnt take regular fluid
Hi, I too own a Saturn, "VUE". This is probably useless information but I'll tell you what happened to me. I was taking an exit ramp on the way home from work one day and when I had stopped at the traffic light the radiator was smoking and boiling over. "THERMOSTAT RIGHT?" Yes that was the problem. I took the VUE into the repair shop and the manager said "This will be my first Saturn". I said how long will it take, he replied "Oh you can have it back by 5 o'clock today! I said Great! Well I got a phone call at 3:30 pm saying The parts man delivered the wrong part. But here's the best part, AND TRUELY HOPE THIS IS NOT YOUR SITUATION TOO! The thermostat is underneath the intake manifold! Can you believe it. He initally told me the repair would be approx. $130 to $150.................Not so when all was said and done the final bill was $324.00. Wheew what an assinine place to put a thermostat. When I was a kid the cost about $10 bucks and a 9/16" box wrench and about a 1/2 an hour!
