Question about 1996 Saturn SC

1 Answer

My saturn ran a little rough, and the trany was shifting a little hard as well. then one night i couldnt touch the petal for more a second without the r.p.m flying up and losing power to the wheels. i could rev it all the way home. then a week later i started it up to try and move it and it drove fine no rough engine no slipping trany. it has other little quirks that im not worried about, but then i let it sit for another couple of months, put a new battery in it and the power flickers on and off till it regains. Then if i go to start it again the power shuts down, and i cant get power for a couple of minutes. where should i start?

As far as the power problem, it sounds like you have a battery connection that is not clean and tight, OR your new battery might be bad. I would check all connections, if they are all good, I would have the battery tested.

2001 Saturn SL transmission won't engage


hangon. your leaving something out. myguess is you had the ebrake pulled so the car didn't roll when it was in gear. and now the car wont move at all or what? you left alot of important info out. if it is running and wont move at any point you broke something in the trany or a driveshaft. you should not be able to shift the trany into any gear if the engine is running. the clutch is turning and unless the clutch is disengaged you wont be able to shift. knowing that i am guessing you broke it good and need a new trany

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.

MY 95 SATRUN SL2 SHIFTS HARD JUST HAVING PUT A


It's possible, especially if the used trans sat unused for a while. When you change the filter, make sure that the trans has fresh, proper fluid.

My saturn sl2 is shifting hard on his bad days


Yes, with another transmission...they have a problem with the valve body going bad. Go with a junk yard trany. Just make sure that it has low mileage. $700 is a ball park figure...$700 for labor.
