2001 Saturn SW2 Transmission Service

What Does Your Saturn SW2 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Saturn SW2 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Saturn SW2 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your SW2 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2001 Saturn SW2’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Saturn SW2? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your SW2 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my SW2 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Saturn SW2’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
