I have been refilling my coolant about once a month for 6 months now. In the past two weeks I have had to fill it twice. In the past few days I noticed smoke coming from the hood and the coolant light was on. Temp was between hot and cold. Today the temp was all the way on hot but the car was not smoking too much. I pulled over, let the engine cool, then filled it with more coolant so I could make it to a mechanic. Also the temp outside was in the 60's and I was not running any a/c or heat. There was also coolant leaking from my car when I stopped today and when I put the new coolant in it was splattering all over under the hood. My question is what could this be? Also I took it to a new mechanic and I don't want to be over charged or scammed. What should I be asking when they call with the estimate? Approximately what are the prices of this fix? Thanks!
I just changed the engine oil on my 2002 saturn SL1. In the process I inadvertantly pulled the trans filter which is outside the transmission much like an oil filter. Stupidly I did not realize it was the trans filter and proceeded to put my new oil filter on the trans. After replacing the car with new oil I started the vehicle so that the engine oil would fill the oil filter and I could properly fill the engine oil. When I started the car I sprayed out most of my trans fluid through the filter area since the oil fiter did not seal. I then tried to put the car in reverse but it would not shift. Not realizing where the trans fluid was coming from I put some off brand trans fluid in to see where it was leaking. I then realized what had happened and proceeded to drain the rest of the trans fluid and replaced the trans filter with a new one and added 5 quarts of dex III fluid.
The car has always shifted fine previously. However after taking it for a short spin it was shifting hard and I suspected too much trans fluid. I drained about 3/4 of a quart until it was at the right level. The car still shifts hard. What should I do at this point?

I have a saturn sl1 1997 and it smells like gasoline all of the time. We really smell it when the car is sitting in the garage. There is no leakage onto the ground from the vehicle and the gas cap is tight. The check engine light is on too, but I don't know if the 2 problems are related or not. Any ideas of why the car smells like gas and what i can do?? Is it the fuel filter maybe?
