2008 AURA XE
Default Saturn aura won't move in gear

I've got a 08 saturn aura xe 3.5 I just replaced the 2-3 shift solenoid now it won't move in gear. It goes into park but every other gear feels like neutral. It just revs up but doesn't move. Any suggestions on what it could be? Also no check engine light.

What was the reason you changed the solenoid?
First thought is low fluid level since all gears are affected. Did you check the fluid level?
or
Plugged filter.
or
Broken shift linkage.
or
Bad torque converter.

2007 AURA XE
Default Re: Saturn aura won't move in gear

I had a similar issues a few years ago. I put it in park, then the next morning noticed it would slide freely between the other gears. If it helps, in my case it turned out to be a broken Shift Cable Bushing which I located between the engine and the battery. I ordered a replacement "Shift Cable Bushing kit" from bushingfix .com and that fixed it. Took 5 mins and no trouble at all to replace.

Good luck
