Issue 1.) The wonderful thing about Saturns is they were build with a spin on type Transmission filter. Its located under the battery tray on the drivers side. Replacing it and putting new fluid in is a great way to help remove some of the sludge that builds up in the tranny valve body and causes it to stick.
Issue 2.) Your cooling system is a delicately balanced critter. The fan is electric and has a sensor on the radiator to detect high temps. Your AC bypasses the circuit and will run the fan as you've discovered. Replacing the sensor, and getting the Coolant system flushed, while installing a new radiator cap is a start. The original factory coolant left a buildup in the system on mine and led to a complete blockage of my heater core. If your car's issues are left unserviced you will probably warp the cylinder head.

Golf FSI 2.0 (2005 Model) Automatic golf. The Car stats Jerking when changing gears especially from second to third gear whats the problem?


You may need a tune up . When was the last time you changed plug wires and had a decent tune up that will cause a vehicle to jerk when reaching higher gears the more strain on the engine the more it will jerk!!!
