2000 Saturn LW1 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Saturn? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my LW1's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2000 LW1’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Saturn, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Saturn LW1 transmission fluid leak? Yes. Saturn LW1 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
