2003 Saturn L300 Transmission Service

What Does Your Saturn L300 Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Saturn L300 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Saturn L300 transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your L300 isn’t working at all.

2003 Saturn L300 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saturn tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your L300’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your L300 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my L300's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Saturn L300’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saturn. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
