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.

Inspect transmission/fluid every 30,000 miles

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.

2009 Saturn Vue Recalls

Potential Loss of Steering Ability

GM has recalled 2,149 vehicles that may have been assembled with an incorrect steering knuckle on one or both sides. As a result, the tie rod ball stud could pull out of or fracture the tie rod housing, causing it to separate from the steering knuckle. If this happens, loss of steering ability can occur, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the steering knuckle and replace the knuckle and tie rod as necessary. This recall is expected to begin by December 8, 2008. The General Motors recall number is 08389.

Power Steering Fluid Leak Could Result in a Fire

The power steering line connected to the power steering pump may have a nut that has loosened, possibly causing a power steering fluid leak. If the fluid contacts the hot exhaust components, a fire could start. Dealers will inspect the nut and tighten it. If a fluid leak is found, the fluid level will also be checked. The recall began September 26, 2008. The GM recall number is 08284.
