While the hood is open. Rn the engine with a helper operating the gas pedal and e-brake locked. Place the car in D and then R while you are watching the engine from the side. Have the helper step on the gas in each of the gears and watch what happens to the engine. If the engine jumps around,, then you have other mounts that are broken and need replacing.

I have a 2000 Saturn sl2 and The right front motor mount was broke right down the middle and I replaced with oem part and it seemed to help quit a bit but still shifting hard what is wrong you think .


most engines have 3 or 4 engine mounts and if one had failed the others will be close behind. Misalignment of the engine to the shifting operation will lock levers or jam cables.

There are 4 motor mounts on the engine. You found the top mount. The bottom mount on that side is a dog bone and is right under the crankshaft pulley. The bottom mount is on the other side in about the same place. The drivers side top mount is another dog bone and is under the battery box. For best results, change all four of them at once, and make sure to buy a GM original mount for the top one. The knockoff mounts just aren't as smooth and durable as the real thing. Believe me on this one, the huge difference is well worth the few extra bucks. 25315433-zejmo41uy3tce5x43qikgza0-5-0.jpg

Transmission shifting very hard


Unfortunatly my transmission does the same thing. I had it repaired for about $800 only to have the same thinig happen again about 4 months down the road. It seems that there are alot of horror stories about these saturn transmissions. My trans has been slamming for about 3 years now and it still works...per say. Id say either replace it or just drive it until it breaks.

2002 saturn vue, manual shifting problems


You have a slave cylinder for this trans. Pump the clutch pedal 25 times with the engine OFF. Then start it and try shifting it into each gear while parked. If this make it work your slave cylinder needs to be replaced

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

99 saturn sl2 has lost reverse


Reverse & 2nd gear share the same clutch pack.Usually when reverse goes out you will get wierd shifting into 2nd or 3rd.Most likey the Input shaft retaining nut has come loose inside the first clutch housing.It can be accessed from the trans end cover but it will take some disassembly.The trans doesn't have to come out to correct this problem.I repaired many saturns with this problem.The only parts you will have to buy is an end cover gasket(paper gasket) & 41/2 qts Trans fluid.Decent mechanice could do this in about 2-3 hrs or less.The service engine light is probally on due to trouble codes from the trans controller most likey DTC P0723 No 2nd gear.hope this helps

Transmission shifting funny.


sounds like either your transmission is having problems with the valves...might want to have that looked at before your transmission dies completely......also have them check vacuum lines as i believe that car uses vacuum pressure to shift.
