Questions About 1993 Saturn SL’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. 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 light the load might seem. 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.
  • When should I have my SL's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Saturn SL’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.
