1998 Saturn SW1 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saturn tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your SW1 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my SW1's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 SW1’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
