I purchased a cabin air filter at Autozone that is supposed to be for a 2008 Saturn XR AWD, but when I looked behind the glove box, there is no cover that releases with latches. Instead, the "cover" is held in place with screws. Before I go to the effort of trying to pull this apart (the screws are very unhandy to take out), is there anything behind this cover?

Can't find the battery.

it wil not turn over

My vehicle cut off in the middle of driving due to low oil no smoke or leakages

I got this car about 5 months ago and I told the man who sold us it the car need to be service to have the rotors done I noticed a clicking noise when you started the engine I asked him to have it serviced I was driving home today and I could not put the car in Drive reverse the bad part about it as was I have a newborn in the car only 3 weeks old and was stranded on the highway for over 3 hours and then there was a recall on the vehicle will be never got the Carfax on this vehicle from the dealership what would be the best suggestion to do

The transmission is stuck in 2nd gear and they are going to fix it and they also recommend a transmission flush. Is it good for the transmission cause they said the fluid was burnt or should I just get a transmission change?

2007 Saturn Outlook XR V6 121,010 miles stabiltrack/traction control warning indicator posted after driving 5 miles on expressway. Shortly after, low oil pressure posted also. Chevrolet dealer service dept. says these particular indicators all post together if one detects abnormal operation. Changed oil & filter & inspected old oil for sludge/metal shavings. No contaminants found. Oil pressure normal until engine gets hot then drops to 5 psi consistently, then cam actuators start knocking. If engine cools down, warning indicators clear & engine runs fine. Service rep says likely cause oil pick up tube restricted or bad oil pump estimate @ $2000-2500 mostly labor to pull engine. Could the oil pressure switch be the culprit? Note, transmission is shifting from drive to reverse with hesitation & clunking but performs ok in drive & reverse.

The car has 155500 miles on it and the oil is saying 18% however they are recommending an oil change first even though its pulling a cam sensor overload code. The service traction control and stabilitrace errors on the dash and making a whining noise usually when turning or acceleration. It is showing the P011 code.

Googled this and someone said replace filter. but just got new on with the oil change. How much should we pay for repair

P0717 and P0716 codes so I bought sensor. Need to know where it is located to replace. Mechanic coming over to night unfamiliar with this make.

oil in intake tube low oil pressure and metal tube leaking oil into spark plug


Car shifts into drive, reverse and low with no issues. While driving and during acceleration the transmission will shift from 1st to 2nd, but from 2nd to 3rd it doesn't shift and the engine races upwards of 4500 rpm.

Dealer replaced speed sensor but error msgs still appear.

I just brought in my '08 Outlook at 100k miles to replace the power steering pump as it was making noise and I received the letter about the extended replacement until 150K.

After diagnostics the dealer is saying that the pump will be replaced for free but ..... That's not the only issue.
They claim the all power steering is leaking and they need to change the power steering gears (rack and pinions) and that's about $1600.
In addition they claim the timing cover is leaking and they need to be replacing the oil gasket. If they do both at the same time they can save money and only charge me $2300.


First of all, is it even possible that the leaking power steering requires a complete replacement? They say if I do not do it the pump will fail again.
And does it really take another bill to change the timing cover gasket?

Can I do just one side or do I need to do both?
