2000 Saturn SC1 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saturn tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your SC1 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.
  • When should I have my SC1's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2000 SC1’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.
