I have a 1998 saturn SL1 that I just replaced the trans with a salvage yard trans . I have delayed engagement for reverse and I have high fear only for forward gears . Does this car need to have a relearn procedure performed that might correct the problem I have ?0

good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist no, there is no re learn procedure for this trans. the issue with reverse is mechanical, not electrical. have you changed the oil/filter for the trans??? replacing with a used unit is always risky that you may get a bad one. if the oil.filter are changed and you still have issues then you most likely have a bad unit and will have to come back out again Roy

I know it's a risky thing buying from a salvage yard . The fluid looked good when the trans was delivered and I did replace the filter and the main issue is the tranny only having high gear , reverse was the minor problem of the two
