Does this car run properly, motor wise. Any hesitations ? I have 2 of these cars one auto, and one 5 sp. I had the same problem and it was a sensor in the motor, not transmisson. You may want to have the car's code read. That would be the cheapest way to pinpoint it

SOURCE: transmission shifts hard when the trac off light comes on

youll need to scan for transmission codes. the trac off light is a default of the trans going into a default safety mode. Bad speed sensors and simple little bolt on items like that can cause the condition but only way to really nail it is with a computer.

I had a similar problem which turned out to be caused by a leaking vacuum line.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy HHR Traction Control Light and Check engine

i fixed mine by pulling each and every fuse in all the fuse boxes and replacing them with new ones. the hhr fuses have a tendency to work loose and cause all kinds of little problems. i searched the forums for the answer to the traction control light problem and never found an answer that worked until i talked to a "shade tree" mechanic in my area and he told me to do the fuse thing. been a month now and no more problems.

Testimonial: "The comments I left are the solution. The fuse thing does not do anything. It's a red herring. I replaced only the one that's associated with P0010 and It's been months."

SOURCE: My saturn was running fine. Then it would shift very hard

well if it shifts very hard into every gear that means the pressure control solenoid in the trans went bad and it causing the trans to go to max line pressure thats why it shifts so hard,,,it does that so you can still drive it even thou it broken,anyhow the PC solenoid is under the trans pan which is on the TOP of the trans under the battery,,,,not too hard a job to do, the parts are about $100 labor might be about $200,,,easy fix,,could be alot more,,,and if you dont fix it ,it will break other stuff in the trans and cost alot more,,,

Wrench light mean


Next time it does that, do not shut off the car and go to an auto zone or similar and ask to borrow a code scanner. Plug it into the obd2 port above your gas pedal and check the codes.

My 2001 saturn won't go into reverse, it engine is on but nothing happens


take to any repair shop which has a lift. ask them to check the transmission linkage. they do this by moving the the linkage while someone watches from underneath. if the linkage is good, then you need to go to a transmission shop and get an estimate.

That fuse powers shift soledoid 2 and the TCC solenoid. One of those 2 solenoids is probably shorted. The transmission will have to be repaired.

When in reverse before it goes it jumps and also at 3 rpm's it jumps then goes


What you're describing is hard shift-shock. Its a symptom of old transmission fluid, or a transmission fluid leak, causing an empty transmission. Don't drive your car til you check the transmission fluid level, and change it if it's dark-looking.

I have a 2001 Saturn LS with the 2.2 Liter engine. The problem is the transmission shifting very hard, and also when shifted from parking to either reverse or drive it kiks in very hard.


Trying changing your transmission fluid and filter. The fluid gets gummed up and causes very rough shifting. It may also be low as well. I would suggest a full back flush where all fluid is pulled out of the system including the torque converter whereas a simple fluid and filter change will not do that. Also, there is a transmission fluid filter on the transmission lines, it looks very much like an oil filter. I believe that will greatly help your problem.
