It does not sound like it. a worn out clutch will let the engine rev under load without the vehicle accelerating. does the clutch work properly taking off in 1st gear? if yes the clutch is not the problem

2003 Saturn Vue is not shifting properly


Look under the hood beside your brake reservoir You will see another small reservoir for the hydraulic clutch fluid. At this very point, look to see if the rubber cap is on this reservoir tightly, not lifted on any sides. If it is low, than top it up. If it is not low, you may have air in the system. These cars also have a slave cylinder in the transmission that could be wearing as well, but I'd look at fluids first .Hope this is helpful to you. If not let me know and we can delve into it deeper There is a bleeder screw down from the reservoir if you need to bleed it. Just open bleeder a bit and watch fluid coming out. Watch for air blowing out too as it's not supposed to

Take out your middle console and watch your shift cables as your shifting, you may have something stuck or maybe your shift cable bushing has broken. So i would just take the console out, and try shifting in all your gears. And then you will most likely find out what your problem is. :)) Good luck. Hope this helps. I have a saturn too and I LOVE IT!!! Good choice of a car!!! James Booth

I have a 02 Saturn and my clutch is giving me some problems..when the car is on the clutch pedal won't allow me to engage in any gears, but when turned off it allows me to shift no problem. Checked all the...


You have one of these two things going on....Either the clutch master cylinder is internally bypassing or the clutch itself has gone bad. If you can pump the clutch and sometimes be able to shift, the master is bad. If the clutch pedal feels normal, then I'd suspect the actual clutch disc is worn out.
Your clutch has little to do with shifting with the engine off as nothing is turning and engaging the gears is not a problem. Have an experienced tech take a look at it if in doubt ...should take all of five minutes to determine what's wrong.

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue and will not shift into gears. We have bleed the clutch hydraulic system as the repair manuel states, but I still cannot shift gears.


there could be a few reasons as to why you have this problem. one reason could be is that your shifter cables have gone out, reason could be your syncros have gone bad which synchronizes gear shifting, take your shifter tower off and see if theres any indication of breakage into the transmission or if the tower just slipped over one of the gear shifters and caused it to bind, if theres no indication of any of those i would pull the tranny and see if your clutch is binding, warped fly wheel, or if you need a new clutch job

1998 Saturn SC1 manuel stick is hard to shift into 1st & 2nd gear


Try to double clutch the clutch pedal. How to double clutch; push the clutch in moving the stick to neutral, then release the clutch and then push it back in and shift into first or second gear. If it works then it is not the shift linkage and could be a clutch adjustment. First how far do you have to release the clutch pedal until the clutch plate starts to engage? If only an inch or so the clutch pedal needs to be adjusted, which is an easy fix (this is more common). The other possible problems could be the clutch plate, throwout bearing of syncros could be bad. If it is one of the previous problems double clutching should buy you some time.

Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse


Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

I have a 03 Saturn Ion 5spd when shifting it doesn't want to go into gear sometimes and feels like it is meeting resistance what would this be?


Check your clutch throwout adjustment is correct.
It may be that the clutch is not releasing completely between gearshifts,
Check clutch hydraulics are not faulty, causing insufficient clutch throwout travel,
Check gearbox oil level is ok and of correct oil grade.

2004 Saturn Vue shifting problem


You should probably check the shifter cable. I had the same thing happen and then I couldn't shift into 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears. Then the cable snapped and I had to replace it. Be careful "man-handling" the shifter. If you break the shift linkage at the base of the shifter it's about $45 from the dealership. It's cheap plastic and doesn't take much to break. If you really want to know if it's the shift cable and not the gearbox crank the engine, have someone hold the clutch, disconnect the shift cables from the box, and manually shift the gears. If they move smooth, it's probably your cable which would mean there's a kink in it somewhere. You can't fix that. Depending on the VIN you're looking at anywhere from $189 (what mine cost with tax) to a little over $200 (from the dealership brand new). Talk to the parts desk at a Saturn dealership and they can tell you which one you need. Hope this helps
