Question about 1998 Saturn SC

2 Answers

My 98 SC1 has problems shifting. After 30 min of driving, reverse won't engage. Sticks in 2nd and 3rd on the freeway. I have to stop and turn the car off, give it 5 and then everythings fine! Valve body replacement? whole transmission, relays. What is the problem?

Hello,most likely your Input shaft nut inside the first clutch housing needs re-torqued.Trans doesn't need to come out for this but you will have to remove the end cover assy & re-torque nut to 110Ft Lbs Torque.You will need to drain fluid & need a new end cover gasket!! That's probally a 90% chance of that being the prob.Good Luck

What kind of Mileage on the Trans? sounds like it is going into "limp mode" the computer will force limp mode when it sees a fault. It is designed that way to get you to safety without causing further damage to itself. The best thing to do is to take it to a repair shop to have the computer scanned for codes. I try to keep people away from the checker and auto zone free Diagnostic because they can be really miss leading if the scann data is not properly interpreted.

I have a 98 chevy silverado. My transmission only has 2nd,3rd and reverse if you manually put it into 1st it still has 2nd gear in 1st&2nd gear and 3rd gear works in 3rd and drive only. Nothing higher


Remove trans pan and inspect shift solenoids. These are prone to come apart and visual inspection often finds the problem. Replacement units include a bracket to keep this from happening again.

Drops out of OD.


Fluid Change has nothing at all to do with a fix
Nothing at all & on a worn trans can cause slipping
In your case I assume a shop gave it a try
The hard shifts tell you the valve body needs cleaning
I would first look at all body data related to the trans,whatever
your truck has TCM Module whatever
I would check all bulletins at a repair shop in their data base
I would have a mechanic ride with you to look at the trans
with the scan tool on it & watch the speed sensor & any
external sensors you may have for correct data
No also check the brake switch
Does it go into Lock-up in most gears (brake sw )

P1776 is the only code you need to be concerned with it a problem with the solenoid back (not the transmission valve body) Also did you recieve the transmission reflash that the dealer are supposed to do?
