Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series
The car has around 82,000 miles on it, I havent had any problems with the trans at all until about 3 weeks ago, i pulled out of my parking space, started driving down the street and noticed the car started making a high pitched whining sound. I knew that meant it had low or no trans fluid, but i checked it a week before and it was full. Pulled over, sure enough no fluid, it was all over the bottom of the car, and there was a trail going from my house to where i drove. You could see the puddle in my parking spot, it seems it dumped the fluid when i put the car in reverse. I took it to the mechanic at my job, he said there was a hose that had come out, he reconnected it and changed the o-rings around the connection and it hasnt dumped the fluid like that since, however it still seems to leak when the engine is running, and its not a constant leak it only leaks here and there but only when running....also ive been noticing the trans starting to shift weird and maybe slip...not sure if its actually slipping but when im accelerating its not smooth at all, the rpms go up as normal then all of a sudden drop then come back up
