1994 Saturn SW1 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Saturn? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your SW1 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your SW1 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my SW1's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Saturn SW1’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
