Not sure when your 2008 Sky is due for its next transmission service?

What Does Your Saturn Sky Transmission Do?

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, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Saturn Sky transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Saturn Sky transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Sky at all.

Questions About 2008 Saturn Sky’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Sky towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Sky transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Saturn Sky’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Saturn's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
