First of all, check the fuel pump relay to see if it is going bad. if it is ok! also try this, Have a person turn key to on,, and put your hand on bottom of fuel tank. if the pump is turning on, you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. the pump only turns on for a few seconds to pressurize system, or to get fuel to the engine. just keep turning key on and off to recycle fuel pump. Good-Day! Hope this helps! relay for pump may be bad.< Check this first.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter on a 2004 saturn vue

It is part of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank, all the cars are starting to use this type of setup, the filter is only serviced when the fuel pump fails.

If your check engine light is on use DB2 monitor to check code, replace sensor indicated. Check fuel filter if more than 30,000 miles, Could be ignition problem or weak fuel pump

Engine needs to crank over strong and steady to have a chance of starting. Youi said it has a poor crank. Battery may be low or bad. If you get the engine to crank over corrrectly and it srill does not start check fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse.

2002 vue v6...starts and runs well however when I stop , shut off the engine, then try to start after half hour , it wont start


Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

Rather then replacing a bunch of parts because someone suggested it could be this or that , your best bet , take it to a qualified diagnostic technician . One that has the knowledge an testing equipment . Could be any number of thing's . guessing doesn't work .

Saturn vue 2006 honda v6 only runs for 2 seconds starts right up and runs 2 seconds still wont run in street for 2 days now padlock shows when motor shuts off


It sounds like the GM Passlock system is activating and shutting the fuel pump off. Are you using the original key or a copy? A copy will likely not start this car, because it lacks the GM Passlock chip.
If you're using an original, try another key if you have one. Otherwise you'll need a tow to the dealership as the Passlock module probably has a fault.
