When I shift to drive and give it some gas the rpm's just race like it's in neutral or park- I move it to N. let it return to idle rpm shift back to D. and it usually begins to operate correctly.


First check transmission oil level.
If the oil level is normal, it is possible either the transmission pump pressure is low, transmission solenoid may be bad, or clutches are worn. Have someone check to see if there are any diagnostic codes with an OBD code checker.

Reduced engine power came on i'n my 00 chevy


Ok I would start by checking your shifter to make sure it adjusted right and you can do this by looking at your shift indicator if that is ok then might have a bad manual shift valve thats in the transmission, if that valve goes bad it would tell the pcm that your transmission is being shifted into another gear while your driving causing the Power control module (PCM) to out you vehicle into reduced engine mode

Warning stating reduce engine power and something about stability


Reduced power mode is when the electronic ignition is strategically is not firing all the cylinders to prevent catastrophic failure of your engine. The reason for the GM Engineers put the reduced power mode in the vehicle is so you can drive the vehicle under 50Mph for about 50 miles to a mechanic before the vehicle completely dies.

2003 Saturn L200. Car will turn over but will not


I have the same model. Congrats you made it over a 100,000 miles! Most of them failed after as little as 20,000 or around 78,000 miles becaue there was a design flaw in that the timing chain did not get any oil to it. I had the 78,000 mile engine. Mine failed while driving at 65 miles an hour on the expressway. Pretty much wrecked the engine. The problem with putting in a used engine is that no other type of engine will fit in this car and you can count on engine failure again at 20,000; 78,000 or from what you tell me after 100,000 miles. You would be better off investing in a down payment for a Toyota made here in America that gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I used to be an oldsmobile man and then reluctantly switched to Saturn but am fed up with GM completely now and all american car manufactures.

Road speed sensor


So the diagnostic code says the speed sensor is bad in the transmission? Make sure all the wires are tight to the transmission and in good shape. If they are you probably need to replace the sensor. If the transmission controller doesn't get the correct speed values it would cause some problems shifting. Wiring to a transmission can cause faults since the wires are subjected to heat and vibration. If you can't find any problems with the wiring or the wiring connectors it just might be the sensor is bad (stuff fails).
I do have to say that I am not sure what G-68 means. The diagnostic codes are usually five digit numbers with maybe a letter.
