SOURCE: My 2001 Saturn SL1 no longer goes in reverse, it

Sounds like this is an automatic s-series. Sounds like you previously had a reverse slam in the car. Meaning when you put it in reverse it would delay then slam. As this gets worse it begins to untorque what is known as the input shaft nut. Eventually this nut will get so loose that you lose reverse completely.

The transmission itself is fine and does not need replacement. $1,600-$2,200 is probably not even what the car is worth. The valve body needs to be changed out with a rebuilt one and the input shaft nut needs to be replaced and torqued down properly. Both of these are easily done by any backyard mechanic. Roughly 3 hours will have your transmission shifting like new.

I rebuild Saturn valve bodies (check my ad for more information) and provide instructions on how to do the repair. It costs much less than what any shop will tell you and they'll tell you the transmission is toast...IT IS NOT!

Any questions, just let me know.

SOURCE: 1996 saturn sl1 transmission slips in 3 and 4 gears.

The fluid and speed sensor did not really do anything to solve your slipping problem. If it slipped before it could be that there are chips/breaks in the teeth on the gears or it could be that the clutch is not connecting when it gets into higher gears. May need a new tranny or clutch.

Fault code po 736 reverse incorect ratio 1996 dodge caravan


DTC P0736 - Reverse incorrect gear ratio

The clutch pressure control (PC) solenoid 2 flows fluid to the 3-5-R clutch when commanded OFF and exhausts fluid when commanded ON. The clutch PC solenoid 2 regulates the transmission fluid pressure to the 3-5-R clutch. The transmission fluid pressure (TFP) switch 1 Opens (High) under fluid pressure and closes (Low) when no pressure is present. The transmission control module (TCM) calculates gear ratio based on data from the automatic transmission input speed sensor (ISS) and the output speed sensor (OSS). The TCM compares the known transmission gear ratio to a calculated gear ratio for each commanded gear.

Circuit/System Verification:
Operate the vehicle to induce a shift from second to third gear while observing TFP Switch 1. Perform this action 2 times. The TFP Switch 1 should change states from Low to High. If the TFP Switch does not change states and no other DTCs set, replace the control solenoid (w/body and TCM) valve assembly. If any other DTCs set, diagnose that DTC first.
Operate the vehicle to obtain sixth gear 2 times and then check for DTCs other than DTC P0736.If any other DTCs set, diagnose that DTC first. If no other DTC sets, continue on with diagnostics.
Operate the vehicle by shifting from Park to Reverse, then while in reverse, operate the vehicle with the calculated throttle position greater than 8% for 5 seconds, perform this maneuver a minimum of 3 times. If the DTC P0736 resets, go to Component Testing.

Component Testing:
Perform the line test procedure.
Inspect the check ball 5 for possible sticking or damage. If you found a concern with this check ball, repair the concern.
Inspect the shift select valve 3 for sticking or damage. If you found a concern with the shift select valve 3, repair or replace the valve or valve body.
Inspect the R-1 (Low and Reverse clutch) assembly for wear or damage. If you found a R-1 assembly concern, repair or replace the R-1 assembly as necessary.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day and Happy New Year.

HI i Scanned my Ford Explorer to a computer and i got codes P0732 and P0735 can i get a little info about the codes and how to fix the problem


P0735 FORD - Automatic Transmission Incorrect Fifth Gear Ratio Incorrect Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0732 FORD - Automatic Transmission Incorrect Second Gear Ratio Incorrect All - causes would be the same as above with ALSO Probable bad valve body - and or pressure solenoids. Probable bad clutch band. If the fluid is ok and if you have tried changing the fluid and filter to no aval. Is it time to think about a transmission repair at a local transmission shop. Sorry.

My 2000 Saturn sl1 recently showed codes po733 and po734.What exactly does this imply and where would I start if I wanted to try fixing the problem myself?


po733- gear 3 ratio incorrect, po734- gear 4 ratio incorrect. this is how to fix. You can try replacing the shift solenoids inside the transmission as long as the trans fluid is nice and clean looking. If the trans fluid is dark or burnt looking, it time for a new tranny if you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. Thanks, Midwest-Tek

What this code means is the trans is slipping, the most likely cause is internal parts failure or shift solenoid issue for 2nd gear, but based on what I know of this code you will end up getting the trans overhauled.
