Question about 2006 Saturn Vue
Last night my saturn vue started running rough and it sounded like it was trying to die. this morning when i turned on the defrost it died. it started back up but now it wont drive very well. i can not gain speed and the rpm's arent any different than before this problem. i had my oil changed about 1000 miles ago, i have never changed my spark plugs. does anyone know of a possible solution of what this may be and how to fix it?
Have you tried charging or replacing the battery? If the battery is fully charged you may have a dead cell in the spark plug.

It has a maintenance recomendation from the manufacturer for replacement of the spark-plugs at 100,000 miles. You don't list mileage or V6 or L4 cylinder. Make sure engine is cold because the cylinder heads are aluminum and can be damaged if plugs are removed hot or overtightened upon reassembly. Remove spark-plug wires and replace spark-plugs. Sometimes the wires break when you remove them and will require replacement. If you coat the inside of the wires where they connect with the plugs with dielectric grease it will help prevent the wires from breaking upon future disassembly.

SOURCE: 2002 Saturn Vue won't start
Non-start situations basically boil down to two things: No Fuel, or no spark.
I you are looking to throw a part at it, start with the crank sensor. They are cheap and not too hard to replace.
A full diagnostic approach would be to determine if it was a fuel or a spark problem. Check fuel pressures with a fuel pressure test guage: Low fuel pressure indicates a bad fuel pump or a bad fuel presssure regulator. Lastly on the fuel side, check t see if the injectors are getting a signal to fire, usually done with something called a noid light, I believe.
Spark diagnosis begins with first determining the condition, then finding the cause. Bad coil, loose wires, even the crank sensor are all suspect. A good repair manual with a flow chart is probably the best procedure to follow.
In my case, my manual only had a passing reference to the crank sensor and no diagnostic procedure to test it or even lead me to it. I found the solution through extensive web searches. Once I replaced it, all was well.

I currently own a 2005 saturn vue and also a 2002 saturn vue. My 2005 began making the same whistling sound around 36000 miles, I let it go and let it go. Finally it got so bad I could not deal with it any longer, I have a great mechanic and he automatically point out the carrier bareing I had it replaced and my car is very very peaceful...... :) Hope this helps.
