I would change the shift rod and go with the newer version. But I would suspect that the transmission, being an OBD I, is causing your problems. All the research I've done shows that the earliest tranmission you can use is a 1996. But I'm not a Saturn mechanic, I'm just going by an interchange guide. Alot of other models, OBD I and OBD II doesn't interchange.

Using the shifter off the 93 will help isolate the problem for sure. One thing is it takes 30 minutes to reset the computer so - before you change the shifter - remove the negative side of the battery for 45 minutes to an hour - an hour is better. Reattach the negative cable and see if the car shifts different for the first 30 minutes or so. If there is no change - install the 93 shifter and that should Fix Ya. Best of it.

    Since some time ago - The cars computer re fuel to transmission need is regulated through the onboard computer of the car. I think you will find in the end - you have a lousy replacement transmission.

1993 Saturn SC2 will not crank, but tries to turn over?


You are saying the engine cranks but does not start, right ?
Does it sound like it has compression ? If not could be a broken timing belt.

My 2000 Saturn sl1 recently showed codes po733 and po734.What exactly does this imply and where would I start if I wanted to try fixing the problem myself?


po733- gear 3 ratio incorrect, po734- gear 4 ratio incorrect. this is how to fix. You can try replacing the shift solenoids inside the transmission as long as the trans fluid is nice and clean looking. If the trans fluid is dark or burnt looking, it time for a new tranny if you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. Thanks, Midwest-Tek

What would cause my 97 saturn not to downshift


You are going to need to remove the transmission valve body. Check to make sure the valves all move in there bores. If one sticks remove it. Check using your finger nail if there is a scrach on it. If you fell your nail enter the scrach at all you will have to replace the valve body. This is not a D I Y If you screw it up then you might need a trans.

My car does switch gears, but before it goes to the next it jumps. Then it does every so often after that while I'm driving. Could it be that I need a new transmission or is it smaller then that. 98 Saturn...


well either you have a loose input shaft end nut inside the trans,which is about $500 to fix or you have a bad valve body in the trans which is about $1000 to fix or if you get lucky you got a bad pressure control solenoid,this would give you a very hard shift and bang into every gear and reverse gthats about $300 to fix. but your gonna have to take it to saturn to figure out which one it is,these local trans shops have no idea what they are doing
