Default Saturn Transmission Problems

I am not an experienced Saturn mechanic, so when the home remedy with the transmission fluid additive did not work with my 1993 SW2 I paid someone to replace the valve body. The problem came back intermittantly. The transmission shop got some strange codes and suggested that there might be a computer problem. I shopped around to find the cheapest rebuilt unit. It turned out I had to remove the computer from the car to get the number from it. No one would sell me a replacement without the original part number. Removal takes a few minutes because of the awkward location under the dashboard. I bought the replacement computer and drove around until the transmission problem came back. I popped in the replacement and the problem went away. I still have the car as an extra vehicle. My next purchase was a Toyota.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
