Question about Saturn SL1

2 Answers

I just bought a used 1997 Saturn SL1 and they didn't have a customer manual or anything for it. When we got home we noticed the horn didn't work & that it looked like the transmission reserve tank was empty. OH on the way home we noticed a light blinking that looked like water & temperature. We have no idea of what kind of transmission fluid should go in it or were it goes. Along with the type of oil? I think right now we need help with these questions, and then help on where we can find a manual, even a customers manual. Please help Thank you

As far as oil goes, you should be using 5-30 and any good quality brand that you preffer(i like castrol- but that's just me) Manuals can normally be picked up at the dealer for a min charge. I am glad you are getting a manual, most don't get read or are thrown away after the first some what of a read, this will help you maintain your vehicle, and keep it in top notch condition for a long time. According to the info that I have you need to use dexron III in your transmission. Now I will be honest with you , I have never worked on a saturn before, so as far as refilling goes I will tell you from my common sense of things as I know them to be on most cars. As far as A reserve tank for an automatic goes, I have never seen one, but if you are sure its for the transmission fluid I would say to fill it at the tank. Other than that I have always filled the transmission at the dipstick tube with the trans warmed up and in park. The markings have always been on the dipstick. It is most important not to over fill an automatic transmission.

Water temp light may be due to faulty thermostat or low coolant.
Horn not working would either be bad fuse or faulty horn switch in steering wheel or the wire came off the horn.
5w 30 oil

97 Saturn SL1 horn fuse keeps blowing when installed.


Sounds like you have short to ground somewhere, I would check the wires near the horn itself and if they are ok check the clock spring.

see if you can find the horn itself (often behind the grill) and test it by applying 12v and ground directly to the two terminals (you can use jumper wires to the battery terminals or a portable jump starter). if it blows it rules out the horn. if it doesn't it is the switch, fuse/relay or wiring.

Airbag light on, horn doesn't work


There is a fuse for the airbag. If there is an owners manual for the car, look in that, it will show where the fuse is. On some cars it is in the fuse box under the hood.
