2002 Saturn Vue Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 072005

Vue 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 53,239 miles


In the morning my wife attempted to start the car and it did not start. When I got home from work I started the car, but the idle was very rough. I drove the car around the block (standard transmission) and it was very difficult getting the car to accelerate in first gear. As I drove the car to the dealership, the "service engine soon" light was flashing. The idle was rough, the engine was underpowered, and when I came to a complete stop, the engine would stall. The parts replaced were #12587426: Coil asm, #12580215: Module as, #12569190: Spark plug. I do not know if the parts are available. The repairs were done at Saturn of national city in san diego county. This vehicle is a 2002 Saturn Vue. It has the 2.2L (L4) engine. The parts and the engine are the same ones found in the Saturn L-series sedan, which had a recall for the ignition control module. I believe that recall is 03-C-06. I called Saturn's national customer service line and they said that the recall does not affect my vehicle, even though it has the same engine and same part numbers that were subject to recall for the L-series sedan.
