The part is about seven dollars. The labor time should be less than an hour. Mechanics charge differently depending on the cost of living. A guess would be around $50 or less.

2003 Saturn Vue with 151000 miles on it, leaking clutch fluid and won't shift.

The leaking component must be found and replaced or repaired. I dont know how a "garage" could have bled the line with a leak in the system. Take it back, get your money refunded or make them find the leak and fix it.

Transmission repair cost

You need to get several worst case estimates.

Most likely you will get a remanufactured one.

$1,400 to $1,600

My dad needs to change the thermostat in my 2003 saturn vue AWD

Check "maintenance" Or other headings that are similar. Using a Haynes manual? Sometimes their stuff is all over the book and not where you'd expect it to be. To relieve fuel pressure find if you have a schrade valve (looks like a tire valve) under a cap on the fuel rail. Put a rag under it and cover the top so it does not spray.
Generally to keep system from becoming air bound, fill with engine running and heater on high, allow for thermostat to open and top off when level drops.

I have a 2003 saturn vue 6 cylinder. my service engine soon light came on and my friend had a diagnostic tool and checked my computer and this code showed up, my friend reset it. it came back on after 12...

From the looks of it this is a very common problem with the 2002-2003 saturn vue. There was a Technical Service Bulletin from saturn about the problem, which means it happens alot but not quite enough to warrant a recall.

You need to replace your thermostat and it is a pain to do, the dealership will charge you about 2 hours flat rate to put it in.

Its not a huge deal to get it replaced right away, but the computer depends on the vehicle being a certain temperature and if it isn't then your performance/emissions will suffer.

Please Help me

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!
