    I have a 2000 Saturn SL, this morning reverse worked fine to get out of the driveway, the commute to work was fine (hwy drive) and so was the drive home. Although, I did notice some hard shifting from 1st to 2nd. Tonight I can't back out of the driveway. I checked the transmission fluid and it is full and clean. The car has 206000k on it and I don't think it's work a $3000 transmission job. Is it safe to drive with forward gears only?

I'm not a car Expert but I think you need this looked at by a mechanic,  our family car lost the primary drive gear,  When we took it to a mechanic we found that it needed a new transmission, We paid $3000+/- for a new transmission.  I hope you can resolve this,

Where is the fuse for the windshield wipers on a 1999 Saturn SL?


It is located on the fuse panel on the Passenger side.
Look for the removable panel that is located below the radio/center bezel on the right side (passenger side). It's not part of the center shifter console, but just forward of it. Remove the panel marked "Fuses"! You will find the Wiper Fuse in this panel along with the fuses for the Radio, Accessory Power Plug/Lighter, Power Door Lock & Window Relays, Fuel Pump Relay, Cruise Control fuse, exc......
Hope this info helps!

I have a 2000 year saturn sl..it now has a 1996 single overhead cam..this 1996 motor is compatible with the 2000 saturn? the tranny seems to slip with the 1996 motor? maybe wire priblem to tranny?


When the engine was replaced the sensors off the 2000 should have gone on the 96. The engines are basically the same, but the sensors are what can cause all sorts of problems.

My 1999 saturn sl1 loses reverse once the transmission is hot all forward gears ok


DO A TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE.MORE LIKELY TRANSMISSION FILTER STOPPED UP.TRANSMISSION NEED MORE FLUID PRESSURE WHEN GOING IN REVERSE.STOPPED UP FILTER WILL RESTRICT FLUID PRESSURE.TRANSMISSION NEED GOOD FLUID PRESSURE TO OPERATE CORRECTLY.

The car will not go forward or reverse


I would say your trans is 10 years old
You don't change your fluid every 30,000
miles, and now you have to rebuild the trans

They don't make Saturns any more

So what to do? Your Call!!

What's the difference bteween a 99' saturn sl and a saturn sl1? My 99' saturn sl wont go in reverse, what might be wrong with it?


The SL2 is a DOHC 1.9L and the SL1 is a SOHC 1.9L. They have different transmissions, the DOHC uses a 15 inch wheel while the SOHC has a 14 inch wheel. So when you are shopping around for another transmission you must get one from the same type of engine. Saturn auto transmissions seem to be problematic, I stuck with the manual trannys and had very good luck.

All gears work except reverse won't work. Check


Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

NO REVERSE 2000 SATURN SL1OTHER GEARS FINE


with the code, I'd lean to the solenoid, but there is a large nut inside the transmission that loosens on these and when it does, you'll lose reverse.
