1997 Saturn SC2 Questions & Answers

  • 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your SC2 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my SC2's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Saturn SC2’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
