2003 Saturn Vue 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles
I recently had my origional transmission on my '03 Vue AWD replaced with a factory replacement transmission and the aftermarket garage did not replace some coolant hoses that I understand are specified in the dealer's manual to be replaced with this replacement transmission due to re-engineering as well as did not flush the system (fluid was black). Can you tell me if the Saturn repair manual instructs that 2 transmission coolant hoses also be replaced when replacing the transmission with the re-engineered model for '03 and that flushing the system needs to be done when completing the job in order for the new transmission to function properly? My issue is that only one month and 2000 miles later, the replacement transmission failed and the dealer I took it to at that time tells me it is because the first garage did not replace those hoses as stated in the repair manual and the new transmission and old hoses did not work properly together. Is this true? Thank you.
have the same problem?
