97 Saturn sl1 car stays in one gear except for park

Driving along the car wont go over 20mph,then when i stopped i found out the car wont go in any other gear except for park, then when i put it in reverse or neautral the car stays in drive possible 1st gear? As this may be the reason i cant go over 20 mph? There's no serive engine soon or any trouble codes lights that light up on the dash. I'am unable to select '97 as my choices are 91-93?

    I belive the Transmission is fine because the tranny has never sliped before I belive it's the shift silinoid or a Modual?

    a tranny can go out just like that but you can find out by taking it to a shop and let them tell you happy new year

Saturn sl1 2001 one stay running when put in gear


The first thing that comes to mind is the IAC idle air control. this adjusts the throttle minimum position based on block temp, transmission gear, AC on/off etc. It may be indicating "check engine" Many local parts stores will read these error codes for free. It will help diagnose the problem. There are other conditions that can cause this but start there.

I have a 98 saturn sl1 and when shifting gears(park -drive) its jerks a bit. what does this means?


That can be a mount, but you would of said it jerks at all time from park to drive and when your driving. and also reverse.Going from park to drive is there a pause and do you hear a buzz noise then a gear change. If you did that would be the solenoid. So here it is from park to drive and the RPM is in range this is known also as a harsh up shift, it is mechanical in nature the clutch pack is taking more pressure than it need to achieve a gear change. In other word your transmission is mechanically worn

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.

I have a 97 SL2 and it has the typical slam into reverse, but also after a couple minutes of driving it downshifts... It stays there for like 3-5 minutes then runs fine afterwards... What is the problem?

SL1 won't start, just single click, electronics work


Try charging the battery or jumping the car, your alternator could be shot and not charging the battery.
