2001 Saturn Transmission Won't Engage

I mistakenly lifted the clutch before putting it in neutral, and instead of stalling, I heard a loud bang and the engine kept running. With the engine on, I can put it in 1st 2nd and 3rd without the clutch, but must depress the clutch to for into 4th, 5th or reverse. However, the reverse still isn't engaged when I lift the clutch and apply gas.

SOURCE: cannot shift properly

My Saturn did the same thing - twice. Where the clutch cables connects to the shifter box(??) there is a little clip that had fallen off. The first time this happened, the mechanic told me that I needed to replace the whole shifter box - costing me $400 dollars. The second time - about two years later a different mechanic charged me $15 for the clip and labor.

SOURCE: after new clutch installed, shifter

Your shifter cables have gona bad, i had the same problem and its not your clutch thats causing the problem. Your shifter cables are just worn out and you need to replace them

SOURCE: I cannot engage the 1st and 2nd gear while i can

Ok I see a manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch.
Get some fluid in that reservoir before you burn up the synchronizers.
Basically your clutch isnt disengaging because you are out of fluid. Next you need to find where the fluid is going. Likely the clutch slave cylinder is leaking and needs replaced. Pretty easy actually if you are handy with a wrench.

if it is a cable clutch ,replace the cable as it is not allowing the clutch to engage
If it is hydraulic operation , replace the clutch master cylinder

When i change gears without going into neutral it makes a terrible sound. Is my transmission going?


Hi there:
If its only heard when its in reverse gear then further checks will need to be made to the gearbox,driveshafts,Gear linkages,clutch operation etc.

My 2001 saturn won't go into reverse, it engine is on but nothing happens


take to any repair shop which has a lift. ask them to check the transmission linkage. they do this by moving the the linkage while someone watches from underneath. if the linkage is good, then you need to go to a transmission shop and get an estimate.

So we took our 2003 Chevy S-10 truck into a local shop to get new seals as we had transmission fluid leaking. The truck was working properly when we took it in. When we went to pick it up they told us that...


a transmission that has wear tends to leak and a fluid change may not help instead make matters worst and the loud sound is bad news yes the transmission build pressure and blew it it's not common to blow fusses that unless is the fuse for the transmission or they disturbed any wire harness.

I have a '99 Saturn SL1 5 speed manual transmission. i was teaching my son to drive. he was at a stop sign and put it in first and when he tried to go, there was a bang, the shifter shot back into...


With an assistant check to see if the shifting cables are moving the arms on the transaxel, if not then it may be a broken cable. The most likley is there is something broken in the drive line, [ clutch, input shaft to Trans, final drive gear[s] in Trans, Axel shaft, etc.] First look to see if the the axels are bad. Then you can check the final drive by jacking up one front wheel [ making sure the other is firmly on the ground ] and try to rotate the lifted one, it shouldn't spin. You can see if the clutch or the input shaft is bad by putting the car in gear and seeing if you can push the car with out the engine rotating. Any of the problems will be costly to repair, axel and cable the least.

Making loud banging sound when gas pedel pushed


This sounds like a broken motor or transmission mount.  Try to isolate the location of the banging noise to give you or a mechanic an idea of which mounts to check first.  Some motor and transmission mounts can be tricky, so you may have to remove them to see that they are worn or broken.
