Questions About 1992 Saturn SL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SL? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your SL’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your SL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my SL transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Saturn SL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
