2001 Saturn SL1. Transmission (automatic) shifts hard when putting it in gear and every gear there after. The only codes I get is PO442 and PO410. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Common problem for these cars. "The Saturn Slam". Mine did the same thing. I changed the transmission valve body. This regulates the fluid pressure in the trans. The car runs and shifts like new. Easy fix. Re manufactured ones with the sonnax update run around $165 on ebay and have easy to follow installation instructions included. After it is installed the computer will need a little time to re learn the shift patterns 50 miles or so.. If you drive the car too long before repairing you can do damage to your trans. Hope that helps.

Sounds like you got a transmission problem. I'd start with checking and changing transmission fluid. When changing be sure to see what the level was first and if it was low. If it's still clunking I'd then take it to a good service shop.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

1966 mustang coupe motor 289,4 barrel carb.automatic trans. makes a noise when put in reverse,is this normal?


What kind of noise? A clunk, chatter, whir, grinding, or what? If it's a clunk, you may have a worn U-joint. Test by holding brake on and change between drive and reverse and back. If you hear a "clunk" when the tranny engages, it's probably a worn U-joint. Not a hard repair to do in the driveway. Always change BOTH front and rear U-joints - if one's worn, so's the other.

Loud noise


Sounds to Me Like There is a "U" Joint Problem Here. Although normally it would "Clunk" upon Engaging Forward or Reverse, I would RULE OUT This FIRST, Then move on to Motor Mounts, Transmission Mount, Then DIFFERENTUAL= Pinion Bearing ETC.
PLEASE DO NOT Count me OUT, as I am Available to Answer Questions as you go along with your Inspection, ALONG with MANY MANY Other GURU's At FixYa.com . Good Luck With Your Search & Hope you find its's a Small Problem.
