Lee,
The water pump seal is leaking. Replace the water pump before the seal ruptures. Use a quality antifreeze / coolant to keep the seal lubricated.

It is probably the water pump. Take it for warranty repair.

Could be the water pump, have it checked ASAP, you do not want to overheat the engine.

It sounds to me like your battery is down? Make sure the battery has a full charge. Take the serpentine belt off and see if it cranks any better. Make sure none of the accessory pulleys are frozen.

I have to replace serpentine belt


Generally you make sure you have a diagram of how the belt is routed around the pulleys, then move the spring loaded tensioner pulley away from the belt to remove it.

Bypass ac compressor 2006 saturn vue


I doubt it but I would have to see it in person to say for sure.
If nothing is in the way between the pulley before and the pulley after the compressor, you could use a shorter belt. How much shorter would be something you would have to try to measure.
On the rare occasions when a vehicle comes without ac, the factory puts a dummy pulley in the place of the compressor. I think all Saturn Vue cars had ac.
You say the compressor won't turn, but you really mean the clutch on the compressor ??

My serpentine belt keeps wearing within a few weeks. Also I have a substance leak, either oil or antifreeze, or both. Any ideas where to start?


Water pump bearing. This will cause coolant loss and rapid belt wear. Replace the water pump along with a new belt. Check idler pulleys too while belt is off.

How to replace serpentine belt on SAturn Vue


On the 4cly 2.2 engine you DO NOT need to remove the engine mount. If you remove the right front wheel, there is an access panel held in place by plastic push pins. If you remove this panel, it is very easy to remove the belt by attaching a serpentine belt removal tool to the 3/8" drive hole in the tensioner arm.

Saturn vue 2006 4cyl. when acelerating alternator light comes on and looses power steering assist for ashort period of time.


Your serpentine belt is slipping badly. When the engine speeds up, the accessories cannot be sped up due to insufficient belt friction, and the slip that takes place allows everything to slow down instead.

My 2003 saturn vue makes squealing sound at the steering even at a slight turn


Sounds like your serpentine belt. I would check the condition of your belt on the engine. It is possible that you could also have power steering pump issues. Check belt condition first, Second if the belt is not glazed and looks ok remove the belt and check movement on power steering pump pulley to see what what type of resistence is presen while turning pulley. If so, pump should be replaced. This could be causing belt to slip and make the squeeling that you are hearing. If no resistence on pump replace belt and varify repair. Good luck.....
