Found out that it was a cracked fuel line. Somehow it was flooding the engine and turned out to be pretty serious, $$$ because I waited too long trying things like new fuel caps and other quick fixes. Take it in and have them check the fuel

Unfortunately, it was worse than what we thought. We jump started the car to take it to our mechanic. Found out that they only hand tightened the battery!!! I was pretty happy...UNTIL...the mechanic informed me that the car I just bought as a first car for my son needs a new exhaust system, and the oil keeps dripping into the anti-freeze (of course, this was after paying $200 to have them flush it just to find out it was "muddy" due to the oil.) So, that requires some welding. Total bill....$1700! Exactly what I paid for the VUE. Wish I could just cut my losses, but I couldn't do to someone what the guy I bought it from did to me -- just push my problems off onto someone else.

IF its any consolation... You really can't get much of a car for $ 3400.00 so you're probably going to wind up with a pretty good car once the repairs are done.

I have an 03 saturn vue that I just replaced the spark plugs, and valve cover gasket on. Now before I did all of this there was no smoke or gas smell, but after the replacements, there is now thick white smoke and a strong gas smell coming from the exaust. Is there something I could have plugged in wrong or messed up in the process?
