1994 Saturn SL2 - Wont Accelerate/Shift, Overheats

I have a 1994 Saturn SL2. It seems when I am driving long distances or at a higher speed, the check engine light comes on, the temperature gauge goes up, the RMPs go up to about 5 and it wont accelerate or shift into gear on its own (its an automatic). Also, I don't know if this has to do with the ptoblem, but when I put it in reverse, sometimes I need to tap the gas a couple times to get it to go...and it jolts into reverse, this tends to happen more frequently when the car is "warmed up".

Saturn sl2 sputters when i accelerate and check engine light came on when i kicked it down into passing gear,seems to idle a little low now seems to be getting worse


You'll need to get the trouble codes to see what is the problem. Many auto parts stores will pull the codes for free - I'd start there.

1999 saturn sl2 transmission wont shift from 1st gear


Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.

You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

1998 Saturn SL2 fails to accelerate under load


Have you checked the fuel pressure at the rail ?
if I remember right it should be somewhere around 45-50 lbs. if it is lower check the pressure before the fuel filter by the left rear door under the car front of wheel well, if the pressure is higher (70 psi ) then your fuel filter is bad.
Good Luck

Blower motor wont work


Disconnect connector at blower under pass side of dash.Check for power & ground with the blower switch in the #4 speed (High).Most Likely a blower motor if all 4 speeds are out.If high works but no other speeds,you need a blower resistor.Blower easy to change 3 screws & one connector.hope this helps

1993 Saturn SL2 will not shift into highway gear


Saturn says and I quote

there transmission fluid is not to be changed after the first change at 6000 miles.

Now I say it should be changed at every 30000 miles. If changing out the fluid doesn't work then you need to go to a transmission repair shop.
