There should be a dipstick. it may be small and hard to see. search for anything comming from the trans. unless its a standard trans then there will be a fill plug and a drain plug. sitting level the fluid should come to the fill plug

SOURCE: saturn 2001 transmission

this vehicle has no dipstick, supposed to be maintained by professional only. there is the fill cap on the drivers side, between the fuse box and engine. it is red and more towards the bottom. i imagine you can atleast see the fluid status.

SOURCE: radio locked on 2001 saturn sl2

Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down, press & hold the am/fm button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down, then call 1-800-537-5140 and enter 202108 (this is a dealer code - you can use one of the others below, too) followed by the # key, then enter the numbers that you wrote down, followed by the * key.
The call will give you a 3 or 4 digit override code. Write this code down so you have it if you ever need it again. Enter this number into your radio following the instructions in your owners manual.

Note: If you get an override code that starts with 0, you drop the 0 when entering the code into your radio.

If you don't have an owners manual, then press & hold the hour button until the first 2 digits of your code come up, then press & hold the minute button until the last 2 digits show. Then press the am/fm button.
Repeat step #5 twice in a row it will disable the Theftlock and you will see "---". You will then be able to change to a new lock code.

IMPORTANT - Other dealer codes: 139010, 206053 and 620529 - these may be inactive by now; GM will remove them from time to time if they feel that they are "compromised".

Also - there are 2 modes to the TheftLock - "LOC" or "SEC" and "INOP". Once the anti-theft is activated, the radio display will show "LOC" or "SEC" - you then have 8 attempts to enter your code. If after 8 attempts you don't enter the correct code, the display will change to "INOP". It is only at this time that you will need to wait one hour, with the ignition ON; before you can retry. After that - you will have only 3 attempts before the radio enters "INOP" mode again.

SOURCE: how to drain transmission fluid in 1993 saturn sl2?

About the only way to drain transmission fluid is to take off the oil pan on the bottom of the tranny. There is no drain plug on transmissions.

Good luck

SOURCE: how do u tell how much transmission fluid goes

It depends on which tranny you have. You either have an MP6, an MP7 or a 4T40E.

The MP6 and MP7 were used on the 1.9L engine.
The 4T40E was used on the 2.2L and the 3.0L

If it's being drained and refilled, the MP6/MP7 holds 4.2 quarts.
The 4T40E holds 7 quarts.

If it's been rebuilt and it's COMPLETELY empty (including torque converter) they hold:
MP6/MP7 = 7.4 quarts
4T40E = 12.9 quarts

If you're just trying to check the level and don't know how much to add, the procedure is to remove the drail plug. The fluid should be level with the bottom of the plug. If no fluid drips out, add fluid until it starts to slowly run out of the drain hole, the tightent the drain hole plug before any more runs out. The fluid will now be at the bottom of the drain hole plug. Keep in mind, this must be done when the transmission is up to at least 104 degrees. Things under there are HOT, so be careful.

SOURCE: 1999 saturn sl2 transmission wont shift from 1st gear

Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.

You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

Where does the transmission fluid go


The transmission should have a dip stick. It may be hard to find but its there. With the car running check the fluid level. If it is low than you will need a skinny funnal and remove the dip stick and install your fluid there.

TCC solenoid is located in the valve body on top of the transmission. Once you have the valve body top removed, the TCC solenoid is the third one from the left.

Hope this helps.

Check manual transmission fluids in saturn slf2. How?


Most manual transmissions don't have a dipstick. They have a drain plug and a fill plug. When the oil reaches the fill plug then it is full. Unless it leaks, the level never goes down. It just has to be replaced after some mileage like 100,000.

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.
