Question about Saturn Ion
My stick shift was getting hard to shift then i checked and saw the fluid was low.After adding fluid it still wasn't shifting right and the pedal was soft.I also had to press the pedal to the floor and it would shift but it feel like whatever( piston) it should press in wasn't going all the way in as it should and now my stick shift will not shift into gear at all and if i put it into gear berfore starting the car it pops out of gear or the car drops(clunk)but it want shift into any other gear(it stays stuck).

I also have a 1999 sl2 saturn . I was having about the same problem but mine also did not want to go into reverse somtimes as well . Ichanged my fluid and filter and put in a good trans conditioner and just about all my trouble went away. The trans filter is just like a oil filter it just screws on the outside of the transmission . It is located down under the air filter housing, and the fluid plug is right on the bottom of the trans.

If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

add fluid then bleed the system by slackening of bleed screw at slave cylinder.Push pedal down close the bleed screw with the pedal down.and do so until the air as stoped coming out.If its been done before she has a leak at one of the cylinders

I am dealing with a very similar issue on my 03 Spec V , So far i noticed the clevis pin was loose and the locking hitch pin that slips thru it had fallen out . this caused the gears to not wanna engage due to the bolt behind the clevis which runs to the master cylinder was not getting pressed in when i pushed the clutch pedal in because the clevis pin was slippin on n off giving me no pressure up top .. I had to remove my lower dash panel in order to get visual n hand access to this pin , it is a tight spot to work in as well . May be easist to remove the 4 14mm bolts that hold yur driver seat in to give ya more room to work n stretch out ur arms
