1994 Saturn SL Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 1994 SL’s Transmission So Important?

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, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Saturn SL transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Saturn SL transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your SL isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1994 Saturn SL’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? 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 my Saturn tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • 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.
