The oil filter is on the left hand backside of the engine (on the passenger side), just below the alternator and a little to the inside. It isn't an ideal place to get to since there isn't much clearance underneath the SC-1. I would suggest wheel stands or jacking the front of the car up and putting jackstands underneath if you are going to change the oil yourself, otherwise there is always JiffyLube.

2002 saturn ignition coil overheating

Only thing I could think of is the coil rack may have some bad wiring going to that coil. Could a bad ignition module cause a heat problem like that? Heck, I should be learning from you, rather than offering bum advice. Excellent post, Paul. You might check our search feature for this problem and find something helpful. Good luck.

Where is the oil filter on the 2007 saturn vue


The 2007 saturn VUE FWD 4 uses a cartridge type oil filter instead of the traditional canister.
The location of the oil filter varies, but for your car it is laying horizontally in the front of the engine next to the exhaust manifold.

Take care and good luck

Where's the oil filter on a 2002 l series saturn

4 cylinder is located in front of the engine compartment.

You will need a 15/16" socket to remove the cover and the filter (it is attached to the cover).

Now, standing at the front of the vue, with the hood open, look just to the left of the battery box and down. You should see the large socket cap. There is a notch in one of the intake hoses for you to get an extension on the socket. Unscrew that cap and remove the old filter. replace with the aftermarket filter CH9018(Fram) or equivilant.

Make sure to change oil also, unless you are running extended service synthetic and only changing the filter.

How do i change oil in 2002 saturn sc2

you will need approx. 5 quarts of Oil 10W 30
you will need an oil pan, rags an oil filter wrench(walmart--very cheap). New oil filter obviously. 14mm wrench or socket for the drain plug.

Procedure: let car warm up (this will help drain all oil out faster and more efficiently)

take drain plug out first,
let that drain while you place a little oil in the new filter (if it is a horizontal mounting filter then there is no need to put any in)
use your oil filter puller and take off the old filter. that may have a little residual drainage; after that place the new filter in and then replace the drain plug(once all the oil has stopped running out. a little bit left in there won't hurt) place at least three quarts in to the filler hole. then start the engine for aproxx 30 sec. This will allow the oil to fill the oil filter and also heat it up a bit. let it sit for a minute then check the level. It may take a little over 4 quarts, you will have to check the dip stick as you pour more in. take it for a test drive then park on the level, let it sit for a minute, then check it again. if it is way over then you must drain some back out. over filling can damage your engine.

2007 saturn vue 4 cylinder - change oil

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
Good Luck

I am trying to change my oil in my saturn sl1 its a 2000... the engine has been replaced with a larger 2.2 engine and we are having troubles finding the oil filter for it

This is a canister oil filter system.
It's located up front of the engine on the right side. It's half way down and it has a Black Plastic Cap. It's takes a big socket to unscrew. I can't remember what size, maybe 1 1/4.
Fram filter# CH9018
