2007 Saturn Outlook Problems
Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.
Vehicles with certain V6 engines may illuminate the Check Engine Light one or more of the following codes: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, or P0391. Our technicians tell us that some vehicles may require a powertrain control module (PCM) software update to correct this issue. Other vehicles may have excess camshaft end play on one or both cylinder heads which will need to be corrected using special procedures outlined by GM.
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The heated washer module under the hood could overheat due to excessive current draw. Under certain conditions, this could result in an under hood fire.

This recall is expected to begin on June 20, 2010.
If a buildup of snow were to occur on the windshield, the movement of the wipers may be restricted. This could result in the wiper linkage becoming detached from the wiper motor, rendering the wipers inoperable. Visibility could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a new wiper crank arm, driver's side link, and crank arm nut to correct this problem. This recall is expected to begin on October 13, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08091.

My Outlook has had power steering issues. At 30k miles the boot was leaking power steering fluid. The steering wheel winds and the power steering fluid is full.
