I assume you mean the speed sensor. The part should cost ~$15.00 and labor will be 1 hour or less.

1999 automatic saturn sl1 , hard shifting and surges . Replaced all of the motor mounts and that didnt help..


Not sure why you went after the mounts. Sounds like shift solenoids or something more serious with the transmission.

I have a 1997 Saturn SL1 with an automatic transmission. The car will not operate in reverse. The car appears to operate well in forward gears shifts smoothly.


Common problem with several causes. The neutral safety switch could be bad, will need some knowledge and a scan tool to diagnose. Also valve body could be bad , will need to have a professional look at it most likely.

Is it hard to replace the steering column?1997 Saturn SL1.


it is not really hard but make sure the ignition switch and security system will still work if you relplace it, if it has a security light in the dash when you open the door, it is harder, if it doesn't then you can do it...
remove all bottom plastic panels, all wiring connections, disconnect the yoke on the engine side of the compartment on the bottom, there are two or 4 big screws holding the column up, loosen them from the bottom, and follow steps, make sure battery is disconnected and air bag fuse is removed...this is just a general instruction.

Does a saturn sl1 2001 have a single or double transmission?


An SL1 has a single overhead camshaft, SOHC, engine. It has but one transmission. If it has a clutch pedal next to the brake pedal, it is a manual shift/transmission, if there is only a brake pedal, then it is an automatic transmission.

Transmission problems


I have a 97 SL2 and it has the typical slam into reverse, but also after a couple minutes of driving it downshifts... It stays there for like 3-5 minutes then runs fine afterwards... What is the problem?

Chaged transmission on 1997 saturn now it will not


It sounds like you have the wrong transmission. If your car is a DOHC aka an SL2, SC2, or SW2 then you have an MP7 transmission. If you have a SOHC, aka a SL1, SC1, or SW1 then you have an MP6. You need the right transmission for the right motor...DOHC needs the MP7 while the SOHC needs the MP6.

On top of that, you need the correct gear ratios which changed over the years. Your '97 CANNOT use a '98-'02 transmission. It must be 1991-1997 if it is an MP7 or 1993-1997 if it is an MP6.

Otherwise the PCM will not shift the wrong transmission.

Automatic transmission on my 1997 sl1 gets stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear when car is warm. Is there an electronic shift control I can change to see if this is the problem


The issue is most likely due to a worn transmission valvebody. The problem will get worse over time. It is caused by not changing the transmission fluid often enough.

Only solution is to have the valvebody rebuilt or replace it with a new one. Its not a difficult job, but the removal and installation steps have to be follow precisely.

Hard to start


warriorangel
have a 97 sl1 which was very hard to start and when it would it ran rough and stalled out easily. sometimes no start. It turned out to be the heater sensor on the engine block (right side as you face the hood. just under the heater hose. the part was 17.00 or 27.00
I don't remember which but it ultimately was sending misinformation to the computer module and it always "thought" it was too hot and would adjust incorrectly. the major clue was therm
indicator read hot even when cold and just started. took me 2 days
to figure it out before spending money. good luck.
