Why is Your 2006 Relay’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Saturn Relay transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Saturn Relay transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Relay at all.

Questions About 2006 Saturn Relay’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Relay’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Relay is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Relay's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Saturn Relay’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Saturn Relay transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Saturn Relay can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Relay 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.

  • Can I drive my Saturn Relay with a transmission fluid leak? Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.
