Question about 1999 Saturn SL
It stop on me, the car starts but want go to any gear to drive
Sometimes pens, coins, etc... fall down through the shifter seal and get lodged in the park lock cable not allowing it to release the shifter. When you step on the brake pedal the cable unlocks the shifter allowing it to move (safety thing). Remove the shifter console and inspect for foreign objects in the shift linkage. While inspecting with the key on (not running) keep stepping on the brake pedal to see the action of the cables under the shifter. Then remove object causing the cable not to function. If this turns out not to be the problem, then pop your hood and locate the top of the transmission. Find the shift linkage and see if the jamb is there. I sincerely hope that this suggestion helps you to locate the problem. Best wishes.

Check your transmission fluid. If it is bright almost pinkish-red then it is not the transmission. If it is dark red or brown then you need to either get a flush done or replace your transmission depending on the severity.

the speed sensor is located on the passenger side of the transmission , it has a 2 wire connector and is held down by 10mm bolt and clamp , sometimes the sensor will get stuck in the transmission when trying to remove it . persistence and a little WD-40 will help !
