I have a 2003 saturn vue 2.2l 4cylinder with the vti

Customer Question

i have a 2003 saturn vue 2.2l 4cylinder with the vti transmission I am doing a fluid change and cannot find the information I need. i dont know how much fluid to use or exactly how to refill the transmission. Also I cannot remove the center plug from the main plug, it was stripped out when the transmission was replaced 5 years ago so if you know the actual part name and a site to purchase one it would be a great help. Thanks!
JA: When was your transmission fluid last checked?
Customer: Probably when they had to replace the transmission in 2011.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am, all i want to do is change the fluid and see iff her trans stops slipping. I drained it last night and fluid smells burnt and is almost black.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I just need to know fluid capacity, how to fill it and a replacement part name/number for the drain plug assembly.
