Question about Saturn Vue

1 Answer

I want to try to get my wif's 2003 Saturn Vue operatii onal. The vehicle died while I was driving down a county lane. The vehicle was towed to a local mechanic and his diagnosis is a failed transmission. We have no monies to pay for repairing or replacing the transmission. I am knowledgeable about mechanics but would appreciate any "tricks" that may offer some guidance since I am not fsmilisr with the CVT trandmisshelp to get the vehicle to shift into gears. The vehicle has 79,000 miles and has a 2.2 CVT transmission. The dealer seems to think that the vehicle wont qualify for the $5,000 incentive that could be used towards another GM "New" auto. FYI - I read GM's letter andI read the letter tomrsn say the dealershp wil the 5,ooo. Er live 5h rt4 now will nitstreet and will not engage into any yease,

Can a 2006 saturn VUE 4cyl, 2.2l front wheel drive be flat towed?

if it is an automatic transmission it will need to towed with the front wheels off the ground
Short distance towing with any automatic transmission is ok but it has to be remembered that the gears/bearings will be without lubricating oil
the user manual for all automatic cars states to remove the drive shaft before towing and as that is impracticable with a front wheel drive car , best to tow with the wheels of the ground
consider putting it on a car trailer behind you MH as an alternative operation

Can I pull a Jayco camper trailer with my 2003 saturn vue 4 cylinder

Any vehicle can tow a trailer, but you have to think about the ability of it to brake hard if you need it to. In your case I would say no problem. A braked trailer helps.

Have you tried charging or replacing the battery? If the battery is fully charged you may have a dead cell in the spark plug.

I have a 03 saturn vue and the security light comes on and off the dash lights do the same what could this be? and driving home tonight it died on me.

This is a common problem on GM vehicles. This security light indicates a failure in the antitheft system that comes standard on your vehicle. It miscommunicates with itself and then shuts down the vehicle as a protective measure. There is no recal on this. The dealer wont help you. Go to this link for info and possible ways to beat this problem.

Disconnect the battery and reconnect.
