Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.
What is the year and engine/trans of it please?
I see, thanks. Checking the fluid level and condition is preliminary but just to be clear, does it make the grinding noise when in 3rd gear only? Also, are there any clunking sounds when it shifts?
I see, thanks.
Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.
There was a service bulletin for "An engine flare during a 2-3 shift. This condition may be intermittent and may be most noticeable on shifts that occur during light to moderate acceleration."
That can sometimes cause a growling noise as the 3rd gear clutch doesn't engage correctly. Before replacing the entire trans, it would be to your best interest to make sure the bulletin has been addressed first.
If you accept my additional service request for your email address, you can give me your email in a private info box and I'll send you the bulletin in a PDF file, the file is rather large.
You will just have to accept the additional service offer and ENTER your email address in the “ENTER CONTACT INFO” section so that I can see it, Thanks
Did you get that?
Do you still need help with it?
