    What year VUE? What trim level? What engine size? I'm looking to see if I can find a shop manual online.

    Well...

    Car started right up.. still have the battery light. So, we know it is not the battery. The battery is not being charged. Thats the good news.

    Bad News? Ever opened the hood and looked inside a 2003 Saturn Vue? You can't see anything. I have no clue how to check what it is.

    I did check the connections to the battery and they look fine.

    2003 V6 AWD Saturn Vue.

    If you are coming in to fix this, we will drive to my storage unit, and I can assure you, the trip will be worth your while.....

    Ok, 3.0 liter V6.... I'll have to see if I can find a torque wrench, or cheater bar and deep sockets, and a belt puller.....

    I can't make it out your way this weekend, or next.... if you can't find someone in the interim I'll try and make it out your way the following weekend. Deal?

    If your not opposed I may drag my Judo Sensei along, he would appreciate the chance to meet you I'm sure, and it would make gas cheaper!

    The earliest I can get out there is the 27th, and that would be pushing it....

    I'd say if you need it done ASAP I would throw a post up on Craigslist, see if there are any backyard mechanics willing to work cheap.

    It was the alt; I had enough money to fix it, barely.

    There are still other problems, likely it needs new plugs and a tune up, but there are no funds for same.

    I feel this, I'm charging my battery from a wall plug every night, driving to work, then plugging it in to charge at work because my harmonic balancer is broke, which means no belt on the crank shaft, which means no alternator. Thank god the water pump is on a seperate belt... I'm stuck with this crap until at least middle of August. No AC, driving only to SUPER ESSENTIAL places. Sigh... And I have a job that pays decent money, having 6 or 7 emergencies in a row cleans anyone out.

    That being said, I wonder if we could justify starting a fund for M.Tripp similar to the UG vs BS fight fund? If a bunch of guys could spare 5$ (Even I could dig up a fiver) we could probably do a lot of good for one of the most awesome people around.

    Guys, I am flat broke. No job, selling plasma, you get the idea.

    I suspect it is either the battery (unlikely, new one year ago), the belt, or the alt. No idea how to make sure.

    Any bullies in the Grand Blanc, MI area with skills in this area?

    I have better things than cash to barter with.....

    What kind of car is it? I am a bit of a buff in this area. (check out sociocide)

    If i had seen this earlier, I would've just told you exactly what it was.

    Next time give me a call, 5598921701, don't worry it's my google voice number, i don't care who has it.
