Question about 1993 Saturn SC2
My 1994 Saturn SC1 will slam into reverse just once in awhile mostly when its cold. After running the car to get it warm, the reverse slam goes away but once in a while the transmission slips on an up shift or when I floor the gas peddle. It then slams up. Most of the time it shifts without a problem. One diagnosis says its a valve regulator (I could not find anything about a valve regulator - maybe they meant a valve body) another says its the computer. The level was low by a quart of trans fluid but after filling it the problem still occurs.
I had a 1994 saturn sl2 that did the same thing what you need to do is change the transmission filter and fluid and you should not have this problem any more if you can afford it go get the transmission flushed.

I have a 1999 gm saturn with only 83000 km's.It works great,but,after i have been driving for awhile when I shift into reverse it still goes forward slowly until I gun the acceleration then it lurches backwards.Sometimes it won't go backwards even when I gun it.I flushed the tranny,and changed the fluid,and filter,but,same ****.Any ideas?.Thanks.

This can be one of two problems pressure regulater valve worn or pressure control valve inop either way replacing valve body will solve it . there might be one other thing you can do to ensure that the slipping will not happen that is to tighten up your input and output shaft nuts on trans the torque should be 110 ft lbs. if the fluid has a burnt smell to it then the trans needs to be torn apart to the fluid pressure being low caused the clutches to be wear you waited to long to repair if that happened . good luck
