2002 saturn vue, manual shifting problems

Wifes 2002 saturn vue with manual trans, gear shift feels likes its binding, can't get it into reverse or any of the gears that require a pull back on the lever. (2,4,R)

Seems like the clutch is working as when I put it into first gear the clutch disengas the engine. Seems like more of a linkage issue.

You have a slave cylinder for this trans. Pump the clutch pedal 25 times with the engine OFF. Then start it and try shifting it into each gear while parked. If this make it work your slave cylinder needs to be replaced

2002 Saturn vue goes into reverse but not into drive after changing all the relays. What else could it be


Try going forward by manually shifting down to low. If it moves. Could be internal wiring, external wiring. Or PCM. Check the EATX/ trans fuse.

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue and will not shift into gears. We have bleed the clutch hydraulic system as the repair manuel states, but I still cannot shift gears.


there could be a few reasons as to why you have this problem. one reason could be is that your shifter cables have gone out, reason could be your syncros have gone bad which synchronizes gear shifting, take your shifter tower off and see if theres any indication of breakage into the transmission or if the tower just slipped over one of the gear shifters and caused it to bind, if theres no indication of any of those i would pull the tranny and see if your clutch is binding, warped fly wheel, or if you need a new clutch job

1999 saturn with 1.9 engine. trans does not feel like its shifting right, idle stays at about 1700 r.p.m, and i had a code for trans. electrical problem. any hep?


Can you explain the shifting problem you are experiencing? Is it a slam into reverse and/or forward gears? Is there any slipping in forward gears?

The idle may be due to a dirty Idle Air Control (IAC) valve or a faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). The first step is to remove the throttle body and clean it with some carb cleaner and get the black carbon off of the IAC and the underside of the throttle plate.

What was the code for the trans? Was it is incorrect gear ratio code or a vehicle speed sensor code?

Gear Shift very stiff, doesnt want to go into 1st gear or reverse


Continued operation like this and $100 would have been the cheap fix. If this is a hydraulic clutch, check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder. Most take Dot 3 brake fluid and it will say on the cap. It is located on the fire wall near brake master cylinder

Gear shifting is hard to impossible


Synchronize the gears is what a trans does when you shift it, the part that makes this possiable is a part called a sycronizer ring, if they (4 of them) wear out prematurely then you end up with a hard shift issue, does this answer your question? I do assume your clutch is ok?

2004 Saturn Vue shifting problem


You should probably check the shifter cable. I had the same thing happen and then I couldn't shift into 2nd, 4th, and reverse gears. Then the cable snapped and I had to replace it. Be careful "man-handling" the shifter. If you break the shift linkage at the base of the shifter it's about $45 from the dealership. It's cheap plastic and doesn't take much to break. If you really want to know if it's the shift cable and not the gearbox crank the engine, have someone hold the clutch, disconnect the shift cables from the box, and manually shift the gears. If they move smooth, it's probably your cable which would mean there's a kink in it somewhere. You can't fix that. Depending on the VIN you're looking at anywhere from $189 (what mine cost with tax) to a little over $200 (from the dealership brand new). Talk to the parts desk at a Saturn dealership and they can tell you which one you need. Hope this helps
