How to Check the Fuel Lines and Fuel Pump on a Saturn VUE

62

Two things make an internal combustion engine function: fuel and fire. If the engine in a VUE isn’t working the way it should, then it’s because there’s a restriction on one or the other. If it’s fuel, then the two most common problems are a clogged fuel filter and a malfunctioning fuel pump. Check the filter for clogs, and then check the pump and fuel lines.

Tools Used: Tools, Floor jack, Jack stands, Replacement parts, Clean bucket, Adjustable wrench

Check the Fuel Lines and Fuel Pump

Raise the rear end of the VUE with a floor jack, and support it by the frame with jack stands. Slide under the back of the SUV, and locate the gas tank. It’s centered below the back seat, and the fuel lines run from the tank to the engine compartment.
