What Does Your Saturn SC2 Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2000 Saturn SC2 transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Saturn SC2 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your SC2 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2000 Saturn SC2’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.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SC2? 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.
  • How often does my SC2 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Saturn SC2 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
