1993 Saturn SC1 ProblemsInspect transmission/fluid every 30,000 miles
You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles and the spark plug boots should be checked for hot spots and cracks.
The alternator may fail causing the charge light to illuminate. Driving with this condition will eventually cause the engine to stall due to low system voltage.

Will anything else brake too?
A couple of weeks ago it started becoming hard to shift gears, it seemed like it would do better the warmer the weather. I live in Colorado so right now it is very cold. Last night and this morning it was really hard to shift while driving, 2nd was almost impossible. Got home and went back out...
ok my wipers wont work at all, unless the wiper lever is in the fast wiping postion, my left turn signal is very difficult to to on. i have checked everything i could to make sure everything was plugged in right in the steering column.

The brakes may fail to apply due to a faulty brake booster. Dealers will replace the brake booster assembly to resolve the concern.
