2003 Saturn Vue 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles
Can anyone tell me if it states in the Saturn official repair manual that when replacing the origional transmission in the 03 Vue with the re-engineered transmission built for that vehicle (due to problems it had) that you must also replace 2 tranmisssion coolant hoses as well? I had my transmission replaced a month ago by a local garage who got the factory replacement transmission from the dealer (re-engineered) but did not replace the 2 coolant hoses that I understand Saturn instructs they do as well because they are also re-engineered and need to work together. This month (one month later) the new tranmission failed and I am trying to determine if it is due to the hoses not being replaced as the dealer is telling me. Obviously, the first garage is saying that is not the cause. Who has info on this?
