Question about 2001 Saturn SC
My 98 saturn SC2 will drive but once it goes it will go up to 5-6 RPM before going into 2nd and also it will not go into reverse, when you put it in reverse it goes into drive. is it the linkage??
Sure sounds like a valve body issue to me, have you done any work yourself on it to get the reverse to go on drive?
Here is an article about valve body removal:

An easy fix would be to go tothe Junk Yard and pull off the parts you need .......in order to do this though I would advise getting a Haynes Manual (VERY VERY HELPFUL BOOK) for your car...Available at your local Auto parts Store (even if you dont do it yourself you should still get the book...it can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to knowing and working on your vehicle)

if you have high resistance in secondary ign. system (plug wires, ign.coil) this will cause this code to set. make sure you are using a high quality spark plug wire set. not from autozone!!! and denso non platinum tipped spark plugs. also use a diaelectric grease on plug wires to keep moisture out.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

2nd gear & reverse share the same clutch.You probally have a loose Input shaft nut that needs retorqued.Located in the endcover of trans.You will need a gasket,fluid & a manual.Re-Torque to 110ft lbs
