My '95 Saturn. bought new, delayed when shifted into reverse, then engaged with a thump.
It wasn't long after that it failed completely which cost over $3,000 to rebuild at a reputable but non-dealer shop. I saw the removed parts and although I had driven that car more mildly than any other I have ever owned, the clutch material in the much bragged-about transmission was burned.

After replacing the undersized, hot-running alternator SIX (6) times, the engine dropped a rod cap when starting and self-destructed at 57,600 nerve-wracking miles.
Mercifully I don't have that lemon any more.
I will never buy another GM anything.

94 saturn will not start, new battery, completly dead

I would check the maxi fuses (big ones) in the underhood fuse box first. If you find one blown and replacement fixes the problem,be sure to get the alternator checked for proper operation,if the cables
were reversed the alt. often is "wounded".

My 1997 saturn transmission acts like it is stuck in drive even when i shift it into reverse and neutral

Check your linkage connections to make sure they are actually working. Also, check the fluid level. If both are good you are going to have to take it to a shop and have it rebuilt.

My 1997 Saturn SW1 will not shift into 2nd, 3rd,

The cables attach near the back of the transaxle. You may be able to see them under the brake lines. You will probably need to remove the air intake from the throttle body to get good access.

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

The clonk sounds like you have a loose nut on the mainshaft of your transmission, I don't have an article on it yet, but for now you can also check these 2:

I will have an article on how to tighten the mainaxle nut shortly
