You could have a leaking water pump gasket. Did you put sealant on it when you replaced it? were ALL surfaces totally clean?

    That indicates either a blown head gasket or a cracked block.

What is the average labor time to do the head gaskets, water pump, and timing belt set on a 2003 Sarurn Vue v6?


I have to say head gaskets on a 3.0L VUE is very uncommon. Perhaps you could have the shop who is working on it explain it better and you could follow up because I have seen exactly 1 VUE 3.0L head gasket leak.

Labor to do the water pump and timing belt should be around 4 hours. Maybe a little more if the water pump leaked and made a mess they need to clean up.
