SOURCE: 2000 Saturn SL2 - replaced ignition then BCM failed. Related?

the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

SOURCE: 1994 Saturn SL2 stuck in 3rd gear.

If the torque converter was locked up as snafu86 said, then you would be stalling when you stopped.

The Saturn TAAT Transmission will place itself in hydraulic backup mode when there is a mechanical issue with the transmission. This hydraulic backup mode consists of placing itself in 3rd gear and staying there. This is to prevent any damage to it. It is possible you have a bad clutch pack or another internal problem.

There is no "pan" or "side pan". The Saturn transmission isn't like any other, for one there is an external filter on it unlike most if not all other transmissions. There is simply a drain plug on the bottom and the valve body is on the top under the valve body pan.

Time to get the transmission looked at. It could be internal and not the usual valve body fix scenario.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my 2000 saturn (auto) transmission, why does it

Sounds like you have a shift solenoid that is dead or you have a booster valve that is not supplying enough pressure to shift.

Your check engine light is most likely on, have it checked to see what gear it is actually "missing".

Replacing the solenoid inside the valve body would fix this or an entire swap of the valve body is necessary depending on the cause. This is relatively easy and an hour job. The valve body is right on the top of the transmission underneath the battery tray. This is my absolute expertise so ask any questions you have.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with


I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

2000 saturn sl2 stalled and wont start , it just ticks battery is fully charged belt wont move at all it seems that the engine has locked due to oil leak. what can i do


try turning the engine with a bar on the crankshaft ot with a screwdriver on the ring gear, and remove the spark plugs, if water comes out of the plug holes then you probably have a blown head or gasket, if you still can't turn the engine over tear down is the next step

There might be a torque converter lock up sensor or solenoid. When it quits working you have a problem like your having. Some times the side pan can be removed and solenoid can be replaced. I have never replaced one in a saturn, but I have in a chevy cavalier. I'm not sure but I think that is a GM made transmission.

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.

Sounds like an output shaft bearing. In the trans. If it is you should hear it mostly in 3rd and 4th gear. Not a cheap repair, but really needs to be fixed.
