#3766 of 3783 Directional signals
May 12, 2010 (5:22 pm)
Not much activity on this site so I am not sure how many people look at it.
I have a 2007 Saturn Vue with 17,000 miles on it. The warrantee expired last month and now I have my first problem. The directional signals will not cancel in either direction. The signals work fine but must be cancelled manually.
Does anyone know why this is happening and any suggestions on repair?

I will check the Factory Service manual and post what I find...

You need to replace the turn signal lever - apparently there's a spring in it that tends to work its way out.
the part is cheap and you do the repair in your driveway without taking off the steering wheel, you just have to remove the top & bottom trim covers on the column and there are 2 bolts and a wiring connector that holds it in. The part is under $ 30 at rock auto.

Thank you for your help. I have ordered the part from Rock Auto and will replace the part as soon as it arrives.
#3770 of 3783 AUtomatic Fluid refill Saturn Vue 2004 2.2
Sep 06, 2010 (12:57 pm)
I was changing engine oil, but instead unplugged the Automatic fluid bolt, brownish color.
Good that smelled it , and it was different from normal oil.
That fluid is saved almost all of it, except little spill,
Car was in Park gear, engine off.
Is it Ok to just refill the old liquid back trough the plug located in the engine compartment.
What to do when first time will start engine?Just drive or must follow some steps.
But know I know where is the correct oil plug is located.(in oil pan corner, vertical to ground!)

Don't reuse the old fluid...Buy new fluid and add exactly what was drained out. Your Vue has a VTi transmission and there's an entire page of a procedure in the factory service manual on how to refill the trans which calls for adding fluid based upon transaxle temperatures...not for amateurs. This is not a "regular" automatic transmission...
My opinion: Put back in exactly what you took out and then drive it to a shop or dealer that is familiar with the VTi trans and have them make sure that the fluid is at the correct level...The VTi is one of the most tempermental transmissions ever - last thing you want to do is refill it with fluid that was just in your oil change pan...
#3772 of 3783 2005 Saturn Vue 3.5 L6 Reliability?
Apr 10, 2011 (5:05 pm)
I'm considering purchasing a 2005 Saturn Vue with a 3.5 L6. The car currently has 122,360 miles on it. I'm pretty sure it's a Honda engine.
Assuming the car was well cared for, how long can I expect this engine to last?

It is a Honda Engine. It is my understand, 05 thru 07- V6 are all Honda.
I have an 05 Vue V6 with appox 100k miles.. I have only did the timing belt per maint. requirement. Have replace front struts and rear shocks..and of course, brakes.
I expect to get over 200K. on this auto.
It gets good MPG for a V6.
Hopes this help.

The Honda engine won't be a problem, but the Vues do have problems with their suspension (bearings, shocks, struts, engine mounts, bushings are all plagued with problems) and transmissions problems -in 2009 GM issued a soft recall and giving $5000 in credit for transmission replacement. The converter also has problems.

Is that soft recall still valid?
