      i had a the same problem with a 2000 saturn SL1, to get a round the jerking and try to get a lil more life out of it i shifted straight from park to drive and then up to reverse, the front clutch assembly is out or going out and you either need to replace the clutch assembly or the whole transmission

      1st I would do a test on the catlic converter and see if its not pluged and 2nd I would check the TPS throttle position sensor and if these both things are fine then I would go to the transmission.

      Shifter has a bushing and a pin which probably came loose, you need to open the cover and see what you need.

      No choice, bring it to a mechanic. Tranny problems are not the DIY type. Although you can post what problems you are having with it, maybe be we can help.

      Is your check engine light on? Well even if your check engine light is off don’t assume that you don’t have any stored trouble code. You can visit AutoZone or nearby auto parts store for free diagnostic. If you have any stored trouble code, this code will help you identify the fault of your vehicle’s problem.

    What is a front axle seal
    had oil changed and tires rotated. Service station said front axle seal was leaking. Said it could cause major problems.
    • HKS Guy

      To make things simple, your axle spins at the same rate your wheels do, so it should be well lubricated. If there is a leak, there goes your lubricating properties, massive wear and tear.

    Why does my car stall when I brake?
    Had new a/c compressor replaced. Also had an oil change and all fluids checked. New battery. Stalls every time I brake.

      It is possible that your IAC valve is dirty, check and clean if needed. A loose/damaged/defective/idle air speed actuator/idle stop solenoid, and dirty MAF sensor connector can also cause it. If you’re vehicle is equipped with carburetor it is possible that the slow jet is clogged or the idle needs to be adjust. Is your check engine light on? Even if your check engine light is off don’t assume that you don’t have any stored trouble code, the only way to verify it is by using a scan tool.

    Automatic shifting erratic
    95k miles. problem only occurs when air is selected
      10/26/2010 MOONSTER_TOOLZ
      What do you mean when air is selected? Can you elaborate this? Have your transmission fluid check if the fluid is low or contaminated; adds or change the oil if necessary.

    Reverse not working. Feels like it's in neutral & i don't feel the gear catching.
    A couple of days ago, my reverse just stopped working. It feels like it's in neutral & doesn't "kick" into gear. It's an automatic transmission. My other gears feel like they are hesitating also, but work and I can really feel it when they do "kick" into gear.

      it could be a misalignment of the gear selector, sometimes this can happen but on some vehicles i t is not adjustable. Most of the time this is an internal problem with the transmission. Check the transmission fluid level witht he car running make sure it is not low. The best is to bring this to a transmission expert, most likely needs to be rebuilt.

    Why does my saturn not go into reverse ?
    If the car is in reverse & I rev the engine extremely. High it does seem to move very very slow

      If i had a penny everytimne i heard this question, and you will have people tell you to adjust the reverse gear band because it is slipping. Others will tell you to replace the valve body. Depending on how old the vehicle is and your intent to have it fixed you can either take it to a shop that will just fix what's broken, i.e. not say that it needs an entire rebuild, or you can try addingTrans oil to it.

      But the worst case scenario would be a tranny rebuild, usually when ity gets busted, the reverse is the one to go out first.
