    Sounds like a transmission problem. I am not very familiar with Saturn. When was the last time the transmission was serviced? Also some shift issues on cars are resolved with a transmission control computer re-flash.

    I had the transmission fluid flushed/replaced 2 mths ago, last week it started making a squeeling sound when I would accelerate. I brought it in and it was a quart low on transmission fluid, thought that was it, then the next day that's when it started jerking. What is the transmission control computer re-flash?
