2000 Saturn LW2 Transmission Service

What Does Your Saturn LW2 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your LW2’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Saturn LW2 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Saturn LW2 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your LW2 at all.

2000 Saturn LW2 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • How much can my Saturn tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your LW2 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my LW2's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Saturn LW2 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
