20004 Saturn i am having shifting problems will not go into gear smoothly,if at all . 5th gear in nearly impossible to find with out grinding . Is it the shifter ,clutch or clutch pedal not engaging?


Possible causes are: The clutch is going out, the hydraulic clutch system is low on fluid, or the transmission input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing. 1. Is the pedal firm and does it feel like it used to? (low fluid). 2. Once in gear and moving push on clutch and notice when the transmission disengages. If it does not disengage until the pedal is almost at the top then the clutch is getting thin and will need replacing. 3. With vehicle on a smooth flat surface, depress clutch and try to shift into any and all gears. Notice if vehicle tries to lurch forward as shifter goes into gear. This may be a subtle lurch but should be noticeable. This checks for a binding pilot bushing. Let me know what you find. Thanks and please rate.

When shifting into 3rd gear on my 1999 SL it grinds going in but stays in gear it does not pop out. Is this common and how costly to fix?


Not common. Being that it only happens in third, it is possible that the clutch is funtioning normally but your syncronizers might be shot. Or close to shot. Try double clutching to relieve some of the grinding. That means to shft from 2nd or 4th to neutral, let out the clutch then push the clutch again and shift to third. That was how old transmissions had to be shifted before we had syncronized transmissions. Not a very fast way to move. Or you might be able to skip 3rd whenever possible. I'm not sure abou tthe price of the tranny repair.

PO732 - Gear 2 incorrect ratio. PO33 - Turbo/supercharge Bypass Valve control circuit/open. PO741 - Torque converter clutch solinoid stuck off. PO783 - 3-4 shift. You have a big problem with your trany.

I have a 1994 saturn sl 1.9L with a 5spd that won't go into 1st gear. Everything goes smooth exept 1st gear. It doesn't even begin to go into gear.


Does it go easy into gear when the car is off? Sounds like your hydraulics are shot or it's time to replace the clutch because the pressure plate fingers are too worn to disengage the clutch completely.

As an alternative diagnostic. Shift into 2nd first and then bring it into neutral then let off the clutch, then press the clutch again and try first. Essential double clutch to see if you can go into first. If it still doesn't work then it's hydraulics or clutch. This was a check to see if the synchros are shot.

Shifting problem, automatic transmission


Does your check engine light come on when this happens? It's probably when your tranny goes into limp home mode. You should have 1st gear ( only if you shift it there manually) 3rd and reverse. You are probably experiencing the 3rd gear thing and are probably burning up all of the clutches when you accelerate and should probably take it into the shop before something worse happens. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
