1991 Saturn SL1 Questions & Answers

  • 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 my Saturn tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your SL1 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my SL1 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Saturn SL1’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.
