Question about 1993 Saturn SL1

1 Answer

Automatic saturn wont shift up to fifth gear anymore

My saturn sl1 1999 automatic has five gears but wont go into fifth or "overdrive" anymore it used to but wont ever since a fluid flush and fill, shifts great in every other way, it would stay in fourth on cold winter days for a few minutes until the engine got warm but i understand that is rather normal in temps below 0 degrees, it appears that there is more than enough fluid in the transmission, checked it hot and cold, maybe a little too much fluid according to the dip stick, but it is close to the same level as before the fluid change.

1999 mitsubishi eclipse automatic transmission wont shift into 4th gear.


First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..

If not.. Check ALL your fuses..

If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..

If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..

1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)

2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..

Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..

Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..

When i shifting fourth gear to fifth gear then after 1-2 kilometer journey fifth gear automatically shifted to neutral, kindly suggest what is the proble and its solution in terms of price wise


This is caused by some kind of electronic shift fault in the transmission electronic control system, it shifts to neutral to avoid further damage to the transmission. You must have the dealer look at this and use a live data scanner.

Car will not shift into overdrive


As a response to solution #1 these cars do have an overdrive while in D-4, mine was shifting in and out at 70 mph until it finally quit and the rpm is now 3100 at 70 mph insted of 2700. The car still shifts 4 full times just not the fifth-OD. I still can't find out what fixes this problem either.

Overdrive button on shift knob doesn't work


Most likely the turning on and off might have trigered or burned out your relay switch located in the front of your engine. The overdrive button on your nissan was only ment to be used sporadically and not as a stick vehicle ( According to your expression ). You can purchase this relay in your nearest nissan dealer. Good luck.
