Since then I've done 2 oil changes, replaced oil filter, new filters, drained and flushed radiator fluid also buying new reservoir cap for it, new cat converter, tune up, new spark plugs, etc....I fell in love with this car the moment I layed eyes on her. I take care of her, wash and wax her, dont drive her far til I get her in tip top shape or as best atleast and I selling her is out of the question. I refuse to give up on her. Theres one thing that shes been doing and I would really love and appreciate it if someone can share the knowledge they know and help me out.

Okay so shes automatic and when I drive her at a high enough speed where shes suppose to shift into gear...she matter how fast or no matter what. My friend thought for sure it would help with the gear shift once the exhaust and cat converter were fixed but no. She stays in first gear and the last time i tried to drive on the freeway(i really didnt want to but i had no choice) i got off at my exit and smoke came from hood and acceleration was slipping. I could still press on it enough tho where it would move very slow but no faster then that. Where the transmission dipstick is at there was fluid on floor beneath car. Not big spots/puddles but half dollar coin size spots. Im assuming driving the distance i did while she was in first gear is what caused all of that.

Im also guessing and kinda hoping it has something to do with a censor or idk something that isnt too drastic or where someone basically tells me shes not worth putting anymore time or money into her cause that would break my heart. Sorry for writing so much but please hmu with any other questions! Thanks.

I have removed the bolt on the outside and it looks it made the solenoid a little loose now but the solenoid still won't come off. What else do I need to do other that removing the bolts on the outside in order to remove the solenoid?

It is turning off at different speeds and different street/weather conditions and times of day. What can I check?

My key is worn and is making it difficult to start car

I have checked fuses, starter, alternator and replaced battery.

Car is spewing transmission fluid even when filter is put on tight. Checked with a knowledgeable parts person and said it sounds like transmission is clogged.

When driving if I let go of the steering wheel it goes to the right.when started and in park if I barely push the front of the SUV in a rocking motion you hear the same noise. So I don't think it's the transmission Already changed the timing belt, wheel bearings and brakes all on the front. It sounds like its on the front right side.

should i replace my fuel filter before the pump or after

I have a Saturn relay 200t. The car's key was lost and we bought a new one. Nobody know how to configurate the new chip key. We took the saturn to Chevro/Statlin shop and they could not configurate the Key. I live in Kissimme, Fl

rad fan won't turn on until temp. red lines why

Replaced thermostat because heater wasn't working and replace coolant. Neither AC or heater work

does the waterpump start to leak before going out

The car barely overheated but when I refilled the radiator it didn't last long before it was empty again. The car is not knocking and is running fine. The garage said it's a blown head gasket and the cars not worth putting that much money into. My question is would some blue devil sealant even be worth a shot or is the car beyond that now? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm stranded 18 hours from home

driving at highway speeds front end kinda hops when brakes applied. not so bad if i pump the brakes first

Code reader says replace thermo..did that twice..thinking there's a leak or clog.

Want to know if anyone on this discussion actually figured out what was causing this?

in 2014 there was a recall on the starters for Saturns I took my car in and had the starter replaced. Today my starter went out and had it replaced, before I remember about the recall. My question is how long was the warranty for and could I be reimbursed for what I have had to pay. What do I do to be reimbursed

I can not find anyone who can tell me where to find the tire pressure control unit. I just dont know where to look on the car. Is it under the hood, under the dash, in the rear compartment, in the kick panels. Please help

If I'm doing a tune up, I wanted to know where the spark plugs can be found. I'd prefer a diagram of their location. On the brakes, I'd like to know how to change front and back brake pads. And can I check my own transmission fluid? If so how?

When I drive I heard a humming noise from the rear bottom side of my truck, sounds like the wheel bearing

There are 2 light bulbs in the instrument panal above the speed o meter that don't light up. Looking up from the speedo i can see blue that is in the panal where the bulbs are. When I take the bulbs out and shine a small light in the hole where the bulbs go I can see the blue light up. Nothing I do make those bulbs light, what are they for.

PSI should be 180 psi
