Replace the transmission and sell it...These vues 2003 and 2004 with the varitrack trannies were junk you may be eligible for a class action lawsuit if you live in a state where they have filled it.

If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.

How have you arrived at your conclusion? Have you manually switched the gears by hand at the shifter control on the linkage where it connects to the transmission? If it is still stiff, your problem may be in your hand(so to speak), at the linkage Lubricate it. Another place is below shifter knob a $45 dollar part may be worn. If you have eliminated low fluid levels and do not detect any leaks in your hydraulic clutch fluids you may be looking at another more expensive repair.

DTC P0708 - Transmission Range Sensor Circuit High
Check your transmission range sensor. There is a connector located where the cable attaches to the tranny on the back (firewall side). Be sure its connected and seated properly.
From what I understand the "range sensor" is basically the Input Turbine Speed Sensor. Be sure the connector for this is also clean. This code is also set by the Nuetral Safety switch. Check the switch with a multi meter to be sure its working properly.
Also, check your Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. This sensor is used by the PCM to help control tranny operations.
Also, can check this additional information for 1998 Saturn SL1...
The PCM determines which gear is selected by a combination of opens and grounds in circuits 771, 772, and 773 at the transaxle park/neutral
position switch. Each combination indicates a specific selection on the
manual shift quadrant, P, R, N, D, 2, or 3. Circuit 776 is either open
or grounded to produce an even number of grounded circuits, 771, 772,
773, and 776. Invalid data indicates that the sum of the grounded
circuits 771, 772, 773, and 776, in 1 of the manual shift quadrants is
equal to an odd number.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
DTC P0706 is set when the PCM has detected an invalid bit pattern for
more than 3.5 seconds, twice per ignition cycle.
The difference between DTC P0706 and DTC P0705 is that a possible bit pattern error due to misadjustment could set a DTC P0706.
1. This step verifies the conditions for DTC P0706 still exist.
2. If the shift cable or switch is misadjusted, a DTC P0706 may set
while in certain gear shift positions.
3. DTC P0706 may set due to 1 or more circuits being shorted to
ground. By disconnecting the switch, the PCM should read all circuits as high and the scan tool should display OPEN.
4. This step will isolate an open circuit. As each individual circuit
is grounded, the PCM/TCM should see the low signal and the tool should display INVALID.
5. The PCM/TCM supplies a 12 volt signal to each transaxle park/neutral position switch circuit. This step tests for that voltage.
6. DTC P0706 may have been set due to 1 of the circuits being shorted
to voltage. This step verifies if a short to voltage exists.
Monitor DTC menu Code Status for Pass Since Code Clear and Pass This Ignition Cycle. When both have passed, the repair is verified.
Criteria for pass:
* No active DTC set.
* Two valid selector positions are decoded. You must move the
shifter to obtain a pass.
When the PCM detects a fault in the circuit, an open, ground, or short,
the PCM will open the circuit internally to protect the circuit.
If no circuit problems can be detected, check the shift cable and switch
Refer to the chart from DTC P0705.
This DTC will cause the transaxle to start out in 2nd gear.
Hope helps (remember rated this).
