Question about 2000 Saturn SL

1 Answer

My saturn 2001 SL2 seems to make a loud clunking noise when it shifts gears and it slips so i'm assuming it might be transmission related. is this a serious problem? what could it be?

    01 sl1 shift kicks going up in all gears. Had the problem before and took it to the dealership. My problem was the CB's slipping but it could also be the engine mounts or even the transmission slipping. Hope this helps

I have the same exact problem as a previous post, so I'll just repost it after saying what I've done so far. I've changed the engine mounts and had a diagnostic run on my car as well. I had the trans fluid...


it sounds like differential problem which is the transmission these models burn bearnings inside the trans and causes damage interior check with scrap yards to see if you can find a good one probably not as well call a dealer near by it is a gm car and talk to tech advisor in shop to see if there is a miracle but before all that have the cv joints checked for loose or worn but i am going for the trans more because i did 4 in 6 month period the people were discouraged and junked the cars

2001 Dodge Grand Caravan. has been making a loud whining noise for about a week. started slipping last night. seems to get worse when going from a complete stop and when shifting into gears. other than...


MOST LIKELY HAS A PLUGGED TRANSMISSION FILTER.
TORQUE CONVERTOR CLUTCH FAILURE COMMON.
CHANGE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND ROAD TEST.
IF NOISE IS GONE AND RUNS NORMALLY, CHANGE TORQUE CONVERTOR AND RESEAL TRANSMISSION.

2002 Volvo v70-Transmission is shifting hard in lower gears


Find a transmission servicer that is not afraid of tackling a Volvo problem. This is probably why the car was for sale in the first place. Good luck!

Clunking when car shifts!!


Take the car to a transmission specialist and check the engine mounts and then the transmission. It sounds very much like you have a transmission fault. if the trans requires rebuilding it could be as much as $1500.00 lets hope its external to the trans, but do not leave it get it checked.
