The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your SL’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 1997 Saturn SL transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Saturn SL transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your SL’s not even driveable.
