I had an oil change last month and there were no leaks. Now I take it back there and they look and say its the pan gasket... Then 5 minutes later come back and say it's coming from higher up so it's the head gasket. That's a very big price jump between the two. Is there anything I can...

2003 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.

At 100,000 miles, am now addressing the sway bar...
