1994 Saturn SL1 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SL1? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your SL1’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • 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. 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.
