Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Noticing increased difficulty shifting gears.
Every gear is sticking and almost impossible to shift in.
1st gear seems to be the worst.
The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.

1. check the clutch fluid level, and that it is clean, and the clutch itsself.
2. check the transmission fluid itsself (yes, there is fluid even though it's a manual)
