Well,it needs trans work but no you do not need a new trans,either the end nut on the input shatf on the trans is loose or the valve body is bad,,,,either can cause the same concern,,,the end nut we usually do first cause it cost about $500 where the valve body is about $1000 so we do the cheaper one first and hope thats all it is,sometimes its a combo of both the loose nut and the faulty valve body,,where then your talking about $1500 give or take a few hundred depending on shop..but usually if it does it hot and cold its the nut loose and or both,but usually if it only does it hot its the valve body only,,,usually,,,,hope that helps,

more than likely you will need a valve body rebuild. you are probably looking around $500+. don't let them try to sell you a transmission. you could search ebay and see if you can find a "rebuilt valve body" but make sure it is for a '00 to '02 SL2

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.

Got in my 2000 Saturn sl2 after going in to get my son. Got in the car started. Made a terrible bucking noise and hesitated to go in reverse but when it did it bucked the whole car and then on the way home...


This car is known to have a couple problems with the automatic transmission. One possibility is that the differential pin has come loose and his hitting on the inside of the transmission. This requires an overhaul, however it doesn't sound like your problem. This transmission is also known for having the valve body in the transmission wear out and cause erratic shifting. This could be your problem. It is still a fairly expensive repair, but does not require the transmission to be removed or overhauled. Hope this helps.
