1999 Saturn SC1 Transmission Service

Why is Your 1999 SC1’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right 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 SC1 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Saturn SC1 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your SC1 isn’t working at all.

1999 Saturn SC1 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 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.
  • How often does my SC1 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Saturn SC1 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.
