These are real cheap and shame on them for even thinking saving a few pennys was worth the hassle. Cheap nozzles made of nylon are pressed in and cause bad spray or come out completely. GET REPLACED IF UNDER WARRENTY!! I have 3 times and need to again. This will be an ongoing problem.
The engine valve cover gaskets may develop and engine oil leak. A burning smell may be noted from the engine area if the type of leak were to occur.

Saturn Vue RecallsIgnition Lock Cylinder Concern
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.
The painted outside door handles may stick or bind, meaning the door may not latch when closed. If this were to occur, an unlatched door could open unexpectedly and an occupant not wearing a seat belt could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will replace the painted door handles with chrome door handles free of charge. The recall began August 19, 2009. The GM recall number is 09066.
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.
