When changing out my RPM goes up an once I take my foot off gas it eases into gear. This only happens sometimes.Any suggestion on what I need to do?
The light came a couple weeks ago. A mechanic ran out of diagnostic codes to check, so I took it to a Chevie dealership. They insist it's an "oil change," light and re-set it TWICE. It's still on. The service guy said to turn on key and pump the gas pedal three times-it went off...
I also have oxygen sensor codes and catalytic conv. codes but I want to reset it first to have it tested and see if these other codes disappear.
2002 Saturn Vue Recalls
These vehicles are being recalled because it may be possible for the key to be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position. If this were to occur the vehicle could roll away unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the vehicle to see if the key can be pulled out when the ignition is off. If it can, dealers will replace the ignition cylinder and keys to correct this concern. Note: Until a vehicle has been remedied, owners and operators are advised that when exiting, to be sure that the vehicle is in "Park," or in the case of a manual transmission, that the vehicle is in the "Reverse" position and the parking brake is engaged.
