What Does Your Saturn SL1 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your SL1’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Saturn SL1 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Saturn SL1 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your SL1 at all.

Questions About 1993 Saturn SL1’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SL1? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your SL1 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your SL1 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my SL1's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Saturn SL1 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.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Saturn SL1? Yes. Saturn SL1 transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Who fixes Saturn SL1 transmission leaks? Look to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for SL1 transmission system diagnostics and repairs. Schedule an appointment online today.
  • Should I avoid driving my Saturn SL1 if there is a transmission fluid leak? Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.
