2008 Saturn Outlook Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Outlook towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Outlook is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Outlook's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Outlook’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
  • Can Saturn Outlook transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Saturn Outlook can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Outlook ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.

You might even experience transmission failure.
