Engine noise that makes my 2002 Saturn Vue V6 AWD sound like a diesel. Could it be a rocker arm that needs adjustment? If so, what repair cost am I looking at?


it could be a rocher arm, or it could be the timing chain tensioner, mostly it the rocker on those they make it sound like the motor is going to blow, to have the rocker checked and adjusted i beleive is about $180.00. good luck.

2002 Saturn Vue V6 AWD sounds like an F1 car when i drive it. Very loud constant noise. Checked trans fluid and it was fine.


I have a 2002 saturn vue. Same thing..sounded like a jet engine ...loud humming as I accelerated . It got increasingly worse. It turned out to be the front wheel bearings. Replace them, now the noise is half as loud...have to do the rears also! 93,000 miles on it. Also, don't forget to replace the timing belt. It it goes too long and breaks, it will trash the engine...

I am replacing a timing belt on Saturn vue 2002 awd v6..which pulley is the tensioner pulley? Does the crank pulley come off or do I need a puller?


only the outside pulley needs to coime off not the cam belt sprocket ,from the sound of it ?? i feel you should entrust this job to the local garage because if you make a mistake you will crunch the valves into the pistons

2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 has a harsh grinding sound in front wheels


Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Whirring noise - Saturn VUE


Greg,
Sounds like wheel bearing issues. I've had my front wheel bearings replaced twice on an 02 Vue AWD V-6. The 02-07 Vues use the same wheel bearings and they are a known issue with these
cars. Another problem with these cars is the rear support bearing for the drive shaft in the AWD models. I recommend having the wheel bearings and rear carrier bearing checked out. Good luck.
