Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 2008 saturn vue which I still owe money
on. Never had any problems . All of a sudden has a
major problem  when you try to drive it. Its goes
really slow when you take off and the engine light
came on.it is also humming when you put your
foot on the gas. Hooked it up the a diagnosis
machine and it said it was a senor. Got that fixed.
Now it barley starts and it wont shift gears. Im very
disappointed in gmc... i used to love my car but
now i feel ripped off. How can I contact  gmc  for

your oxygen sensor is no longer doing it's job...possibly causing the catalytic converter to get ruined~ https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=FODonoytob0

there is a recall...here's a list~ http://www.cars.com/recalls/saturn/vue/2008/


wish that everything works out happy...here's a sunflower painting to hopefully lessen the problems....until you're able to sell and buy a Toyota~


Transmission warranty was extended, so go to a GM dealer and they will repair at no cost to you. Like Buick, Chevy, Cadillac or GMC.


I just had my transmission replaced by GM of a 2008 Saturn view now my engine light will not go off I had to have the alternator and serpentine belt replaced. Is there an electrical wire maybe that was not put back on the transmission that cause my alternator to go bad I never had any problems before my transmission was replaced

gas cap is loose...oxygen sensor needs replacement~ other sensors such as Intake sensor and thermo-time may need inspection as well~


with a code reader...we can see why's it's Bellyachin'.....then CLEAR the codes and make the light go off~ 29.95 FREE SHIPPING http://www.autelobd2.com/wholesale/autel-autolink-al301-obdii- can-diy-code-reader.html?gclid=CjwKEAjwrOO3BRCX55- L9_WojHoSJAAPxcSPBCjqnCOhLit1XYfDG3YteDQ- TbWGTSlo29DAidlu6hoCSlfw_wcB


might just be a Loose Gas Cap...or missing 'cause it was stolen..you may check that...for FREE!~


I just had a code reader put on it and it fixed it for about two miles and the engine light came on again


and was it P002 >? what was it?


I assume your gas cap is new or flawless....they can dry out and leak...check that~
