    I have a 1999 Saturn Sl2 with 125,000 miles. I was backing out of a parking spot and had no reverse until it reved to 4,000 RPMS. The service engine light came on shortly after. I found out that the Valve body in the transmissions of Saturns go out and an updated valve body is available for around $400.00

    MY SL2 SATURN MAKES A LOUD CLUMP WHEN SHIFTING TO REVERSE

  • Anonymous Mar 19, 2014

    When I put the van in gear, either reverse or drive it makes a sound. the sound is the motion sensor when I am to close to something.

You have an internal failure of the transmission, you will need to have a qualified trans shop diagnose it for cost to repair, will most likely require an overhaul.

your car is equiped with an input/turbine and an output/turbine sensor the purpose of the sensors is check for slippage in the automatic transmission if one of the sensors is not working then the onboard computer system will opreate in limp mode and turn on the check engine light or service engine soon light witch ever one your car has, but you will still be able to drive the car it just will not shift real well intill you get the sensor replaced.....good luck

What's the difference bteween a 99' saturn sl and a saturn sl1? My 99' saturn sl wont go in reverse, what might be wrong with it?


The SL2 is a DOHC 1.9L and the SL1 is a SOHC 1.9L. They have different transmissions, the DOHC uses a 15 inch wheel while the SOHC has a 14 inch wheel. So when you are shopping around for another transmission you must get one from the same type of engine. Saturn auto transmissions seem to be problematic, I stuck with the manual trannys and had very good luck.

All gears work except reverse won't work. Check


Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

99 saturn sl2 has lost reverse


Reverse & 2nd gear share the same clutch pack.Usually when reverse goes out you will get wierd shifting into 2nd or 3rd.Most likey the Input shaft retaining nut has come loose inside the first clutch housing.It can be accessed from the trans end cover but it will take some disassembly.The trans doesn't have to come out to correct this problem.I repaired many saturns with this problem.The only parts you will have to buy is an end cover gasket(paper gasket) & 41/2 qts Trans fluid.Decent mechanice could do this in about 2-3 hrs or less.The service engine light is probally on due to trouble codes from the trans controller most likey DTC P0723 No 2nd gear.hope this helps

Saturn '99 SL2 erratic tickover on idle


Idle problem most likey a Coolant Temp sensor & connector.Cam covers very common to leak around the sides & down into the spark plug holes.Also all saturn s-series 1.9 engine consume oil.Most 1qt. per 1500 miles some more some less.Service Engine Lamp has nothing to do with regular maintenance.It's a malfunction indicator lamp.If it's on there is Trouble codes stored in the ECM.Auto zone free scan with printout.Hope that helps
