Saturn VUE, SUV
Oct 11, 2013 (3:50 pm)
Recently purchased a Saturn 2003 VUE. Excellent condition. I did my due diligence prior to purchasing and noticed the transmission had been rebuilt 1 year prior to purchase. I found the actual mechanic who rebuilt the transmission due to an acceleration problem I was having. He has suggested to replace the turbine speed sensor. I noticed from paperwork that 3 months after the transmission was rebuilt, the exact sensor was replaced. Here it is 9 months later and the same sensor needs (?) replaced. I am beginning to wonder if this is a supposed fix to a problem no one seems to know how to fix.
Has anyone had the problem with replacing output speed sensors or can anyone give me advice as to where to go from here?

I hope you can help me my name is Jeri I live in Illinois and I'm trying to find a mechanic to help me with the same issue you had. It's very frustrating! My truck is setting on a dealership lot because the price they want is to high and they are not sure of the problem. My truck just would not turn over and the key would not come out. I just would like to find a good mechanic that can assist me with finding out the real issue and get it fixed

Hi there. My daughter's 2008 Saturn Vue XE V6 went crazy yesterday when she was driving home. All of the instrument panel lights began to flash at once, the radio went in and out and the speedometer and tach stopped working. She made it home, but now the car won't even turn over. The lights and instrument panel light up, but the car doesn't crank. Battery is two years old and in good condition. I'm going to attempt to jump start after work, but I don't think the battery is the real problem. After looking around on the internet, it seems this is a somewhat common issue. There is even a TSB related to it (PIT-4697). My daughter also reported that engine was making an odd noise ("like someone sucking the last of a drink through a straw"). She also reported a few times that the power steering seems to go out when driving the car in the rain. It rained a bit yesterday, but that was hours before the incident with the instruments. Also, it's about 10 degrees here now (and was when this happened last night). Any ideas where to start with this?

Hi I took my Saturn to a Dealership that told me what they thought was wrong with the truck how much they wanted but would not guarantee that that was really the issue. So my son had me take it to his mechanic who advised us it was a electrical issue with the EMC in the dashboard the car is running fine I had one other issue and it was with the gear shifter it made the key stuck in the ignition hope the info is helpful

Using my remote start not only starts the car but makes the windshield washer solution run out the back window. It continues to pump out until the car is shut down. Now the pump for the washer also goes on when the rear defrost is turned on. the tire pressure light now goes on and off, the engine light comes on, then goes off......... the dash lights up like a christmas tree, but it all goes off after a couple minutes
