I would say with any Major vehicle service the transmission should have the fluid changed.

Many things can lead to the failure with the electronics. A slight trans leak can lead to big trouble..

What do you mean "went out"? The car doesn't move or what? Since it's a computer controlled transmission, many things could lead to a failure, so without having the car in front of me to check a few things, my best guess would be a failure of the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid (PCS). A service bulletin was issued for previous years. TSB 04-07-30-020

What could be causing my car to shudder or shake intermittently when it is in gear?


Have someone check your transmission fluid level. Probably low, so the shifting up and down is compromised.

I cant find the transmision dipstick and my


well you cant find the dipstick for the simple reason there is no dipstick,,,you have a VTI or CVT transmission,,with operates like a snowmobile transmission,,anyhow it takes special transmission fluid,,very expensive,,,,Saturn had alot of problems with these transmissions,,,,what i would try is take your car to the dealer and have them change the trans fluid and do the latest TCM update for the trans,,this can do wonders for these trans,,,,,and if that dont work youre gonna need a new trans,,,,,which is alot like $5000-$7000 installed,,,,there was a factory exteneded warranty to 150k miles but when GM went thru bankruptcy they ditched it,,so you will now have to incure costs to fix it,,,thanks GM..,the trans fluid change and tcm update ,, TCM trans control module,,will cost about $350,,hope this helps

Reduced power for real!!!!


There is a fault somewhere on the vehicle which has triggered the engine management system to limit engine power to minimize damage.If you have breakdown cover and live in the Uk then call them.You need a computerised diagnosis of the engine.If you live locally then mail me at heeman453@hotmail.com and I will assist you further.

Transmission 2003 saturn vue 4cyh cvt trans


If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.
