Why is Your 2002 Vue’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2002 Saturn Vue transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Saturn Vue transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Vue isn’t working at all.

2002 Saturn Vue Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saturn? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Vue's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Vue’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saturn. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
