Question about 2000 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Saturn L series with automatic transmission. What my problem is the clip on the top of the shift cable from the interior to the top of the transmission has broken. So the shift cable pops off when you try to go back and forth, I'm told the part to fix it costs $500 dollars which I can't afford, is there a quick fix to this, god I miss the old cotter pin days when you could fix something like this that way.

It should not matter and Yes you are Totally getting the Run Around! The only thing that IS True is that the Eletronic Transmissions like the one that you have are Very Prone to Problems But, They should have dealt with this Problem before and had it Fixed. They just Cleared the Trouble Codes Before Writing them Down and need for the Light to come back on to find the Codes again. But, Like I said before, They should know by the ACTIONS of the Tranny what the Problem was and How to fix it. This is my Professional Opinion, It will be fine until the Light Comes on again, If it does take it back and tell them that you want to speak to the General Manager for that Region. They will find the Problem and Repair it. I have seen it Before. MAKE THEM FIX IT. And do NOT Pay that Rediculous Price for the Repair. They should Prorate the Cost from the Money that you have already Paid them.

Had a Saturn Relay when the battery went bad the security lock activated and could not start the car and the only solution the dealer said was to tow it to them. No wonder saturn is about to be cut by GM. They ran this once good service car company into the ground.

SOURCE: where's the transmission dipstick on a 2000 saturn sl

The Saturn L series automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick. They are the "new breed" of transmissions that are SUPPOSED to be trouble free. There is a plug on the passenger side of the transmission by the drive axle It is 11mm bolt. start the vehicle in park on a level surface or hoist...at operating temp pull out the plug Fluid should just trickle out of the plug hole If no fluid comes out add fluid to trans until it does...Where do you add??? Red plug on top/center of trans. Plastic plugthat threads in Add fluid there....Good luck

Adjust automatic trans shifter cable


Under hood where shift cable or two if manual, you will see a metal spring that goes around cable right next to where metal rod extends and retracts to provide shifting. On end farther away from shiny rod is a normally white piece of plastic before turns black and heads into car. In this white piece of plastic is a square normally yellow or pink but could be white or same, dig at all four corners of square piece and pull up word perpedictular to cable when it pulls I p approximately 1 inch, then it will pop free and cable will not be hooked to output shinny metal rod. If break switch applied park lock works and transmission is in park you could push square plastic clip back into place. If this doesn't remove unwanted travel or adjustment, I have had to block the wheels, set park brake and shift shifter into manual drive 1. And on transmission do the same, useually tword the cable as shifting into 1st is pulling on cable then cable pulls on trans, when both in same location or desired reinsert clip. Couldn't find picture but just as good. Here is someone doing what I tried to explain. Little different cable then I picture in my head but done to many to count. Here ya go

Should i have to do a transmission flush on my 2000 4 door saturn?


Yes I would recommend a flush on any Saturn S series car with an automatic transmission, the main reason for that is if the fluid is kept in the transmission to long the dirty fluid wears out the pressure regulator bore inside the valve body on these transmissions(TAAT) causing problems with shifting into reverse when hot, requiring the valve body to get replaced in the transmission, so if your transmission is shifting normal I would get the fluid changed and a new filter installed to ensure the transmission maintains proper shift quality.
