Check you transmission fluid. It is probably low. If that don't work maybe the filter is dirty, and its time to change it. The worst scenario is that you transmission is getting old, and it is a sign that it will retire soon. So get perpared for that day to come, and start saving while your car is still drivable. good luck

    Oh if it goes on reverse when you push the gas, no need to be alarmed in any way. This is usually a normal thing. There is nothing wrong with your car. My car I really have to rev up the engine to go in reverse, and I have been using it like that for over a year. I thought it wont go in reverse at all. Just check your transmission fluid regularly. The idle up system may not be working at all, and this cause the engine to idle low when its cold, in fact I don't think you have a transmission.problem, at all.

    My car does the same thing. It will go into reverse fine if I do it while the car is cold but once it's warm, I have to puch th gas and it slams into reverse!

1993 Saturn SC2 will not crank, but tries to turn over?

You are saying the engine cranks but does not start, right ?
Does it sound like it has compression ? If not could be a broken timing belt.

My 1995 sl1 saturn only has reverse when it is cold. When i start the car in the morning, it has reverse once. It does not have reverse again until it cools down like after a work day or in the morning...

Common problem with these transmissions.Wear in the boost valve assembly in the valve body causes low pressure and no or partial reverse issues.low fluid can also cause this issue.Make sure you check the fluid with the engine idling in park.The valve bodies are repairable with some expensive tools and knowledge.New valve bodies were availiable from saturn but not sure if gm still sevices the parts.Call Transtar @ 800 633 3340 ext 237 Tammy Mcheal and she can sell you a rebuilt valve body and I can walk you through instalation.

Try cleaning your throttle body with Seafoam throttle body cleaner and then run it. Let me know how it turns out. No check engine light correct?

Transmission is not junk. You need to replace the valve body with a rebuilt one. The cause of reverse not working is because the booster valve cannot create sufficient pressure to get into reverse (reverse requires the most pressure). The booster valve is worn down and the valve body needs to be replaced, rebuilt is the way to go. This is from not changing the fluid and filter every 20,000 -- 30,000 miles to keep gunk from building up and wearing down the valve.

The transmission is fine, don't let anyone talk you into putting another one in, especially for thousands of dollars, NOT THE PROBLEM.

2004 Saturn Ion wont start from time to time when it is cold outside.. Like this morning my daughter went outside and the car started right up with the temp outside 7 degrees. She warmed it up for awhile...

LOL repeating questions. Its your ignition switch. its a common problem with ions ( I myself have a 04 ion and had it replaced twice in 3 years) repair is around 400 dollars with labor. Just google "ion not starting in cold weather" and youll get TONS of threads. No recall either its stupid

97 saturn sc2

I had the same problem with a 97 sc2. The fix for my car was the temp sensor that controls the extra fuel when engine is cold it didn't sense that the engine was warmed up and added extra fuel flooding the engine.
