Did you use the recommended plugs or did you use a new style like E-3 or Bosch +4 or something similar. Sometimes using a plug other than the original type can cause problems. Check and make sure all the wires or plug connections to the plugs are secure. Check to see if a spark plug has a cracked insulator. If you used antiseize on the threads make sure none of it got on the spark plug electrode or it will missfire.

Hope these ideas help.

code p 2176 refers to throttle actuator control(TAC) system--idle position not learned ===causes basic setting not carried out
code p 1795 is CAN bus--throttle body position
code p 1780 is park/neutral position (PNP) switch circuit engine torque signal circuit
code p 1779 is engine torque delivered to TCM signal
go google and type in cadillac fault codes and find a site that has all the codes listed

Engine code p1780


p1780 code indicates a problem in the transmission or the communication lines between the body control module and the engine control module...If the transmission had a true fault of this type in it, it would not cause the engine to shut down.
The most likely cause is that there was a glitch. Unfortunately this will be a reoccurring problem until it is fixed. If the engine check light starts to flash that means it is in limp mode and you will probably only be running about 10 miles per hour. I would say take it to Saturn dealer unfortunately they no longer exist. Best thing to do is have a transmission shop check it out. Or automotive shop sorry I don't have better news.

My Saturn 2003 Vue has 146,000 miles and all of sudden will not go into gear. No warning lights or engine lights came on.This is a 4 cylinger 2.4 engine front wheel drive. What could be the problem?


DOES THE VEHICLE SEEM TO GO INTO LIMP MODE AROUND 20 MILES BEFORE IT DOES THIS. IF THIS OCCURS THEN THERE IS A SENSOR ON THE TRANSMISSION WHICH CAUSES THIS PROBLEM CHECK WITH YOUR DEALERSHIP AND THEY WILL GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION

Reduced power light came on


reduced power messge is not caused by oil pressure. i assume this a 3.0L v6. this engine has a electronic throttle body which is a electric motor that operates the throttle plate that takes the place of a throttle cable. in cold weather the pcv (positive crankcase venelation) system accumulates moisture that will form on the throttle plate, in cold weather the water freezes and causes throttle plate to stick. when the ecm detects any malfunction whithin the throttle control circuit it is put in to reduced power mode that limits throttle position. usually resets after ign. is cycled. there is a service bullitin to re-position pcv hose behind throttle plate to reduce moisture bulid-up on throttle plate. your saturn dealer can perform this service.

2002 Saturn Vue V6 Loss of Power


Yup. The throttle body connectors have a history of failing on these cars. Replace the throttle body and the wire connectors that go to it, and you're back in business. Not terribly difficult and you can get the parts from any dealer. Saturn actually has a bulletin out on this problem but they won't cover it unless you're under warranty - no recall for this.
