Check the transmission fluid level and condition. Make sure the level is correct, if it is then it may be time for the transmission for service. The transmission service time is every 30,000 miles, and if it has not been serviced the Transmission line pressure solenoid could be gummed up with dirt. Have the transmission fluid flush and the transmission oil filter replaced and hope that helps. Hard shifting is a sign of fluid restriction in the valve body in the transmission and will lead to a costly transmission failure. Good luck and keep me posted, the other thing to that would give you a hard shift is a bad throttle position sensor. But that should have given a check engine or service engine light on.

Not sure why you went after the mounts. Sounds like shift solenoids or something more serious with the transmission.

I have a Saturn 1999 its a 5 speed stick shift the bushing on the end off the cable attached to the stick is broken. should i buy the cable or change the bushing ?


You can't get the bushing. Cable only. and there are two cables to replace. Not that hard, but you will have to jack the front of the car up to access the cable plate that bolts to the fire wall.

My 1999 saturn sl1 will not shift into 2nd or reverse, but works ok for 1st and 3rd. what can the problem be?


manual transmission correct? 1,3,5 work by pulling on a cable attached to the transmission. 2,4,R work by pushing on a cable attached to the transmission. you have a shift cable problem. whatever is supposed to push the shifter cable is not working. it also could be a problem where the shift cable mounts to the levers on the transmission. do a good visual inspection of the cables where they attach to the transmission while somebody attempts to shift into 2 or 4.
