i dont know much about cars but my boyfriend was driving my saturn and hit a pot hole, a huge/deep one and it cracked the trani pan or whatever its called and one question from me is if its possible to use a trani from an older saturn to replace it or if its possible to fix?

friend cross threaded cooler line and now it leaks transmission fluid. where do we buy the lines or the screw in part and is it called transmission cooler line where it is connected to the radiator. At least it was caused from taking the radiator out and putting in a new one, (or a second hand one) and then when he screwed the hoses back and they went in crooked then we started loosing tran fluid. Now we can't find the lines or hoses for our 2001 Saturn sl 1.9 ltr. 4 cylinder and I do not know if it is a sohc or dohc and would appreciate anyone helping me to know how to figure that out. My husband had a heart attack and was unable to fix the car himself, and is this very expensive because we are on a fixed and very tight income. We would really appreciate any help that you could email to us to let us know what to do and where to find the parts because we depend totally on this car to get him to doctors that are mostly out of our town.

I've been trying to figure out why this car makes so much noise at low speeds and when I stop at intersections. It sounds like it's idling high, but this only happens when accelerating and while sitting at an intersection. And it stops when I take my foot off the gas or put the car in neutral. Any ideas?

antifreeze leaking out of car puddle on the right side under the recepticle. hoses replaced not long ago. no visible leaks under hood looks dry.

when you change transmission fluid and filter how much fluid should be added back. We are having a problem measurig the fluid on the stick when the carwarm, idling in park leave it in a 30 seconds and it is all the way up the stick check it in and out it says to add. When car is cold it measures at the first hole on the stick.

I have had the a/c checked - it is fully charged, no leaks, compressor works - but when I turn it on inside car - I have to turn it to max and hardly get any air. The heater works just fine. What could be the problem?

A week ago coming home from Bay area, car started shaking when it the car reached 50mph- the dealer said it may be the transmission.

About a year ago, my brakes were making noise as if they were needing replacement. I traveled out of state and had the brakes repaired - replacing rotors and pads (??) on all four wheels - in September. At the time, there was still noise, which was assumed to be the dust that would work itself out, however, they have continued to make noise since that time. Recently the noise has become much louder and much more of a grinding sound. When the tires were replaced recently, I did take a peek at the rotors and don't see much wear or signs of scratching as if something were stuck between it and the brake. The brakes seem to be operating fine (which they actually seemed to be when I had them fixed last September but didn't want to take chances). A couple times I have wondered if there is something that is not properly fully disengaging on the brake - the noise sounds quite a bit like the noise made when the emergency brake is not disengaged and someone attempts to drive. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

i have loosened all the lug nuts car jacked up but the front tires will not come off i sprayed wd40,smacked with a hammer loosened them some and tried backing up and coming to a quick stop.nothing is working help

My service engine came on about 6 months ago, didn't think it was a big deal but now it won't pass smog and has service codes; P0301,P0442, and P0507. I'm trying to fix it myself but can anyone point me in the direction of where to start. I love my car and it's very dependable. Thanks for the help

Car shakes over 50mph, this makes me nervous to drive on the interstate.

were is my #2 cylinder on my 97 saturn sl single over head

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE THE TIMING CHAIN. BOOK TIME IF POSSIBLE, THANK YOU.

My shop is telling me the manual transmission on my '97 Saturn SL needs to be replaced because something (they're not sure what) has broken off on the inside. What they're telling me is a used/rebuilt tranny would cost about $600 and the labor would be be about that as well. I just had the manual trans cable replaced last month so I asked why none of this problem had been apparent and was told that the cable is external. In both cases I lost the ability to shift into any gears. Couldn't find anything about manual trans on this site. Any ideas? It's been a great car but has 192K mi so I'm thinking it's not worth the $. Thanks for anyone with any advice. PS...aren't Saturn parts just GM parts anyway. He's making it sound like they're hard to find.

My car wont start and the anti theft light stays on

I get a check engine light and the car runs bad. When I check the code it tells me it is the temperature sensor. When I change it the check engine light goes out and the car runs fine. The problem is I replace 4 of them this year alone. Can you tell me what can make them go bad?

manual transmission want shift into second gear.please help

about two weeks ago, I took my car for a car wash. When I turned the car on and shut the doors my seat belts engaged like normal. Then I pulled away and they disengaged, sliding back and forth. Now they are in the open position jolting back and forth not sliding. I had to unlatch the belts cause they wont close. Every now and then the passenger belt does slide back and forth. What does this mean? How can I fix this problem?

recently my saturn has been idleing at high rpms then falling back down sometimes almost to a stall. The other day it overheated and started smoking and the temp gauge keeps falling down and coming back up.I took it to a mechanic and he could not figure it out .There are alot of codes such as cooling malfunction sparkplug misfire ect. I just got it back and it didnt over heat but was still idling very high and the temp gauge kept falling and coming back up. sometimes it has trouble starting too and other times its fine.The mechanic said he did pressure tests, checked head gasket, and said the fan kicked on when it was suppose to and said it wasn't the computer module.If u have any suggestions please help e out it will be greatly appreciated
