I purchased a 2001 Saturn sl manual transmission and it had the check engine light on so I took it to autozone for an OBDII and the codes came out to change the o2 sensor in the front so i do they tell me to drive 50 miles for it to go off but the problem only worsened in 5th gear it would shake very roughly and the next day the check engine light started blinking and the car would lag in first and second gear so I took it back to autozone the next day to do another reading and it gave us a laundry list of codes now the car lags going uphill and sometimes only goes about 30 to 40 mph can someone please help me

The car started shaking while i was at a complete stop then it shut off i started the car back up and it was idling rough and shaking. i drove it home but it was like i was running on 1 or 2 cylinders the service engine soon light came on and stayed on. What could be the problem.

It only makes the noise sporadically it sounds like something may be loose but I don't see anything

manual transmission. add fluid and it pours out

i just bought the car the it is it want to run change the oil filter

The noise is constant all the time

The last time I drove the car, I switched from dash air vents to defrost, now no air will blow from dash vents, but cold air will come out of the floor vents on all settings.

Started when they were packed with snow and I forced them.

Went to replace trans filter and it came off in just 1 turn. Previous owner jury rigged gasket so filter would just go on, end of threads stripped. Need to replace threaded pipe fitting that threads in the side of the transmission that the filter screws on to. Cannot find part number or scrap dealer that has one, not able to find on Delco's trans parts list. Thanks


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. Our email address is Thank you for your help!
