2003 Saturn VUE CVT Transmission Problems, 4Cyl Engine. Few days ago my wife was driving it and suddenly stop working. Once home i started and car was fine, right after i drove it around and the same problem came back on, stop working, i just turned off and turned back on again after 5 seconds and i drove back home perfect. Two days with the same situation, but now it does not do anything at all and try to go reverse but with no power. Any suggestions? It had plenty of oil. Now i opened the transmission to see anything wrong, any idea what could be, please?
Well yes, there was a P1758 or P1752, and P0800.
I have to way until i get home from work in the afternoon, ask a friend of my for his scanner and check it out...
Hi, i am back, I checked the computer for any fault codes and nothing on it. No codes at all.
Also, i forgot to mention that right after i turned the car on the fan from the radiator started working too and the lines from the transmission were really hot. What can I do?
Yes, i scanned the PCM or ECM and nothing came up. There is no codes now, but i remember that before the codes were P1758 and P0800. Also, i wanted to mention that right after i start the car, the cooling fan turns on too because the transmission oil was hot. I check the lines, that why i know.
Hum, well when i put it in Drive it goes from 1000 to 3000 rpm, and it does not move at all, all i hear is a regular noise like trying to engage.
Now, when i put in reverse, the car try to go back but without power, because it just move 1 to 2 inches and the rpms will not go over 2000. Actually if i push it, it will go, hardly but will move back.
So i do not think is the chain or the torque converter, (again I think).
Question, do you have or could you send me a picture or diagram, to make sure i do check or replace the right switch, Please?
I don't have an exact picture of this switch here on your vehicle or a diagram available to post.I do have a picture of a general range switch for most vehicles yours should look similar.Thanks Pete.
(I have to log off for the night as it is getting late here where I am but will be online off and on tommorow if you still need help)
Ok, i talk to you tomorrow how it goes. Thanks and good night.
