Assuming it is an automatic transmission, I would look into that first. Check the fluid level. Low fluid level will cause hesitation. If your fluid level is ok consider changing the transmission fluid and transmission filter. Saturn's have an external filter, so it's very easy to do.

SOURCE: cant get my 95 cabrio's transmission out

Turn the transmission clock wise to posiotion the disfferencial at 10 o'clock. Pull it away from the engine as you lift the tail. You could take it out on your own, but need the help of another to put it on if you are not in a shop with all the tool. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 95 saturn sl 2 5 speed manual transmission, clutch

This vehicle has a pair of shift cables which attatches to the shifter and runs to the transmission shift housing.To diagnose,removal of the center console is in order so you can inspect and verify the shifter/cable connections and movement,then verify the cables move the linkages properly at the transmission . These cables are a fairly common failed part and sold as the set,these are a dealer item and no aftermarket cables are available .

I have a 1996 Saturn sl that won't shift into first without grinding or pumping the clutch. It won't go into first when the cars not running, what's going on ?


Transmission gear boxes have synchronizers to aid in the shifting of your car. It is very typical for the synch for 1st gear to wear out first as it gets used the most. You should have then all replaced.

20004 Saturn i am having shifting problems will not go into gear smoothly,if at all . 5th gear in nearly impossible to find with out grinding . Is it the shifter ,clutch or clutch pedal not engaging?


Possible causes are: The clutch is going out, the hydraulic clutch system is low on fluid, or the transmission input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing. 1. Is the pedal firm and does it feel like it used to? (low fluid). 2. Once in gear and moving push on clutch and notice when the transmission disengages. If it does not disengage until the pedal is almost at the top then the clutch is getting thin and will need replacing. 3. With vehicle on a smooth flat surface, depress clutch and try to shift into any and all gears. Notice if vehicle tries to lurch forward as shifter goes into gear. This may be a subtle lurch but should be noticeable. This checks for a binding pilot bushing. Let me know what you find. Thanks and please rate.

When shifting into 3rd gear on my 1999 SL it grinds going in but stays in gear it does not pop out. Is this common and how costly to fix?


Not common. Being that it only happens in third, it is possible that the clutch is funtioning normally but your syncronizers might be shot. Or close to shot. Try double clutching to relieve some of the grinding. That means to shft from 2nd or 4th to neutral, let out the clutch then push the clutch again and shift to third. That was how old transmissions had to be shifted before we had syncronized transmissions. Not a very fast way to move. Or you might be able to skip 3rd whenever possible. I'm not sure abou tthe price of the tranny repair.

Need help fixing 1997 saturn SL gear shift on manual transmission


well probably the only place that would have shifter parts like that available would be the dealer. i would go there in person and they will pull up a picture of your entire shifter assembly and you can pick out what part it is you need. i still dont have a clear picture of what exact part of the shift linkage you need but they will be able to tell you exactly what it is. a lot of times you cant buy parts singularly you have to buy an assembly also so you'd probably be better off looking at a salvage yard. try www.car-part.com

Hard to Shift Gears?


How is the clutch adjustment?
Is it releasing fully?
If you have a hydraulic clutch....is the brake fluid level in the clutch master cyl beside the brake master cyl full?
If you have the cable clutch.....is there only 1/2 inch of play..... if you pull up on the cable at the transmission end of the cable?

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears


The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem.

SL1 manual transmission


if it is just one gear then it is a faulty synchronizer of gear......if it is more than one then it is because your clutch is not fully releasing or the pilot bearing......either way have a mechanic that knows transmissions have a look at it
