2004 Saturn Vue Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Saturn Vue Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Vue’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Saturn Vue transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Saturn Vue transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Vue isn’t working at all.

2004 Saturn Vue Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saturn's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn Vue? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Vue transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Saturn Vue transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Saturn's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
