It looks like the slave is buried in the trans housing. Does the transmission have to be removed to get to it and if so what type of dificulty level could an amatuer mechanic expect.
Thanks

I've had the throttlebody cleaned twice in a 6-month period. Should I replace it at $12-1500? Or should I buy a new car?

2002 Saturn Vue Reviews

When I first purchased my vehicle it had a oil leak they had to replace the valve cover. Later my front lights went out and had to be replaced. Now at 140,000 miles the front end of my vehicle is making a loud rubbing noise i think its the tie rod because it didnt start happening until Firestone replaced my front tires now i can't drive my car. I love it. Its stylish, dependable . I recommend if you have the money purchase it brand new that way your not taking on previous owners problems

I bought this car brand new. It has a 5 speed manual transmission. After putting on 369,000 miles, the major problems have been with the A/C, which I had to replace 3 times. Outside of that, I have only had routine problems. The best car overall that I have ever owned.
