Default a few questions on history of saturn

hi sages- 1. were any Saturn vue models or L series wagons produced with a 5 speed manual transmission? never saw one. told none were made with the v6 but the 4 cyl. was standard in both. my 01 L 100 sedan has the 4 and 3 pedals on the floor. 2. how reliable was the automatic transmission in the L series wagons- must cost a fortune to repair. 3. how much work is required to r and r the coils, plug wires, plugs and magneto on the top of the 2.2 4 cyl. in my 01 L100. figure the parts will probably be $100. should engine be cold to avoid stripping the plug threads?(think head is aluminum). thanks tons bob fisher

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I would say that the auto trans on the 4 cylinders is pretty reliable. I got 150k on mine and I have had no issues at all. In fact, I recently changed the trans oil for kicks and I found that it was in really good condition. As far as I know, the factory trans fluid will hold up unless you're in extreme conditions.

Regardless of visual conditions changing every year is best for long term usage doesn't matter on extreme conditions or not you can't see at microscopic levels to see what's in there. So Oil change as needed and Tranx fluid every year to keep peak performance. You'll be less worry if you do that.
