Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

Transmission issues Okay..I went and had a new catalytic converter put on my 98 saturn a few days ago. They told me that I had a transmission leak. I was driving down the road and suddenly it wouldn't shift (its automatic by the way) and now it's whining and sputtering (like it wants to die). I checked the fluid level and it was low so I added. It shifts now, but the whining and sputtering are still there, what else could this be?

Bypass the o2 sensor at catalytic converter


There's no way to bypass it. It reads directly to the PCM. I recommend unplugging it and put it in the glovebox until you get it fixed. It'll make the check engine light come on but it shouldn't affect drivability at all.

Could be transmission. Or a plugged catalytic converter, or the rear differential. Does it get worse when warmed up? Is there grinding/unusual noises? Where does the sound come from? Try starting out with the transmission in first and manually shift up the gears as you drive. Does it seem to slip? I assume its an automatic. Depending on your level of experience, they can be complicated to replace yourself.

Car won't shift out of 1st gear and PRNDL lights are all on.


hmmm it seems as if the diagnostic system may not be reporting it but it seems like it is telling you in a way its unable to sense what gear the trans is in so the diagnostic board is confused on what to do with the trans as if something around the trans isnt working correctly maybe a shift solenoid has gone bad or another related issue around the trans is present

If no evidence of anything wrong with the codes your being told to check. It might be your ECM is bad, I had a friend had similar problems and they put a new ECM in it and it ran great again.

Engine using oil. No sign of leaking. Catalytic converter replaced 13 months ago, now needs replaced. Told need new engine. What is causing the catalylic converter to plug?


Was a leak down test performed on the motor?This will determine if the oil loss is due to bad rings or a head gasket.A head gasket can be repaired,rings will require an overhaul or new motor.Have checked the coolant for oil contamination?

97 Honda Accord SE 2.2 Transmission Problems


you cannot use a trans from a 98...and also, i recommend replaceing the torque converter as well with the next trans u install...also, the trans u put in may have been bad as well..i suggest u replace this next one with a remanufactured trans and torque converter...here in california, there is a place called H&A transmissions that rebuild Honda and Acura trans only..they are very good and they usually can get one fairly quick...wherever u get the next one, just get a reman or rebuilt one with a warranty...u dont want to have to do it again...
