Try a shot of starting fluid or gas into the intake through a vacuum line.Keep the throttle closed and if it starts you may need a fuel pump.

SOURCE: my 2004 saturn vue will

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I'm having the same problem, so far what i can come up with is the IAC system ( intake air control) either the IAC valve or the stepper motor that the IAC valve sits on. I have already replaced valve and it is comming up code 35 IAC system. I'm thinking now i have to replace the stepper motor.

they might have not put the proper gap on the plugs..and might have over filled the engine with too much oil..

SOURCE: Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.

This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

SOURCE: I have a problem with my 2004 impala 3.8 V6 I will drive down the road and it will randomly die and won't start back up. It will turn over and everything but won't start. But if you let it

Possibly a crankshaft position sensor had the same problem with one of my former vehicles. Be careful buying a new one though it is an electronic part and it is not returnable at most part stores. That is what it sounds like to me though.

Ran 03 saturn vue into mud hole and it died and when i tried to crank it back up it wouldnt start the motor turned over but it felt like the starter didnt have enough juice to crank it


you may be hydro locked. pull your air filter and see if it's full of water. then pull your spark plugs and turn the engine over. see if you blow any water out of the cylinders. if you didn't damage it, you should be able to get it started with a new filter and spark plugs.

When I try to start my 2003 saturn vue the key is hard to turn unless I push brake very hard and turn the steering wheel. What's the problem?


My 2004 Saturn Vue had the same problem. I thought the ignition had to be changed and I drove the Vue a long time with the key hard to turn and pushing it in before turning it. I mentioned it to a Saturn Dealer mechanic while having warranty work done. He told me a new key had to be made using the key code (located on the inside panel on the driver door). They made it and it totally fixed the problem. I think any GM dealer can do that for you.

Ran out of gas in saturn vue, now it appears that the battery disconnected and the car wont start?


the battery does not just disconnect by itself .likely the battery conection is loose if you ran out of gas and it is fuel injected put the gas pedal to the floor and turn the key do not let your foot off the gas until it starts or you will flood it you have to get the gas to the injectors or else tow it to a shop

Jeep won;t start..new fuel pump installed


try the fuel filter and make sure you have proper oil pressure!! Remeber if you have tried craking to many bad times then the plugs are going to be fouled out!! Means that they are going to be drowned with gas and need replacing!! Also make sure your fuel pump is coming on!! You should hear a hissin or a hummin noise back from the fuel tank!

'03' Vue has trouble starting


Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. By the way the power steering is electric in Saturn, so it does not require the engine to be running.
