Yes do that tranny fluid shoud be changed at 30-40 thounsand mile if not the tranny will go bad.and you might have it starting now. if the fluid isnt chery red and you should be able to see through it on your finger if its clean,if dark red or brown red its burnt and has bad smell.

Hi,
Get your Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checked, it could be old or low. May be time for Transmission flush, too.

Saturn ion2 gear selector


It would be the switch inside the linkage or the switch on the transmission that causes this or water or corrosion on the connector. I think it uses the signal from the transmission range selector switch on the transmission to trigger the locks. Have it checked out before you replace any parts as this is only an educated guess. The switch is also called the neutral safety switch.

Well you mean it doesn't even move forward ? and i would advice you to check the oil level and try to have the filter changed and put in new fluid again and this might solve your problem. and if dont work then you try to get a transmission for a junk yard for cheap, Around $150/$200 and have your Mechanic( friend) put it in.lol

Good luck bro

Sometimes the axel shaft backs out of the transmission on front wheel drives when not seated correctly. This usually occures in new transmission or engine swaps. I would take a look at the driver side shaft for fluid residue and shaft placement.
