Here for the reverse slam cure
I have posted this proceedure to cure the reverse "slam" in other ( to remain unmentioned) Saturn forums. This sounds weird, but has worked in nearly every Saturn I have tried it on. Don't go cheap on the fluid or filter...and follow the steps EXACTLY.
1. Change transaxle fluid (Non-synthetic) and filter (Saturn part ONLY please)
2. Add your choice of transaxle fluid additive (IE: Transmedic- Personal preferance Prolong transmission and gearbox additive)
3.Back the car up against a SOLID nondamaging object or wall and/or FIRMLY set the parking brake and chock the wheels.
4. Start the car and place it in reverse and LEAVE it there RUNNING in REVERSE for approx. 30 minutes.
THis will NOT harm the transaxle. What it does is simulate driving the car in reverse for like 25 miles..using the clean transaxle fluid and additive to clean and flushout the reverse gear switching valve and valve body passeges. I know it sounds/seems weird but it works like a charm 95% of the time.
