Sounds like you have a lost, or weak cylinder in the engine. A compression test and, or a leak down test with confirm the condition of the engine.

First do a compression test to be sure the engine is producing the required internal pressure to run properly remove the spark plugs buy a compression tester screw in and turn the motor over for 5 seconds on each cylinder write down each reading the engine should produce 120 psi - 160 psi if there is a cylider that is 15 - 20 psi lower than the others the motor is unbalanced and a valve job should be considered. if the compression is ok be sure that the spark plugs are new and the plug wires are in good shape.

Possible broken motor mount or torque strut. Your engine is probably rocking too far when it is put into gear. The torque strut will prevent that. The rubber bushing n the strut is probably bad.

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
