1998 Saturn SC1 transmission

Our Saturn SC1 has a huge leak somewhere. When the car idles, it doesn't seem to leak, but , when the car is driven it loses all of the transmission fluid, and stop leak that we put in it. I loses it all in 35 miles or less. We don't know what the problem is. Could you help us?Thanks

If there a small leak in the tank the faster you go the more pressure there is and that pressure opens up hta hole and lets that fluid out

When you first crank my Saturn SL1 it idles at 3000 rpm then drops down to 2000 rpm.I've changed the idle sensor & the throdle sensor but it does the same thing. joetaravella@aol.com


that is because the reason the vehicle is idling so high is because there is a vaccum leak somewhere and it is sucking in cold air

sounds like either you have 2 of the wires crossed.........one is loose....probably #1 or your #1 plug needs regapped or is not tight and losing seal....all will cause a misfire and set the check engine light

Low idle in 1998 saturn sc1


I had this problem. Its a sensor. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the sensor. When it gets a tiny litle crack in it, this is what happens. If you take it in to autozone, they will do a free sensor scan for you. You can replace it yourself. Its really no big deal. If you get the scan done you can contact me and I will give you further info.
