There is a whole list of issues wrong with these cars, I know I have an 02 Cougar XR. According to the dealership it is a computer issue, they may claim its the IMRC, a ECM, and then a coil back...In all honesty get it fixed and get rid of the car before it becomes a drain, I have spent literally 3000 in the last three months fixing all of the formentioned parts and the car still has issues.

My car is in Drive but does not go above 2nd Gear? What is wrong with it. Saurn Sl '93


Who care about the Service soon light,since you stated you are a 1993 you are OBD 1,this is not a bad thing but if you pulled a code it would probable read 02 lean bank 1, The real problem is the whole transmission,Wont rev higher in other word its slipping,need to rev higher just to start moving ,well its slipping the solution is a rebuilt transmission,or a better car.

I drive a 2003 VW GTI. Theres a high rev sound after 3rd gear. Sounds like the engine is high reving and gets louder when the car gets faster even when shifting into a higher gear.


It needs rebuilding. The upper gear(s) are not locking in, so your likely wearing out your clutch when you drive fast. Get it rebuilt.

Body Sound..


What kind of noise? Humming? Screeching? Can you tell if it's coming from front? Left? Right? Does it get louder the faster it goes? Higher pitch?
