So you wasted your time at Advance Auto

All they did was check for codes

You check for codes
Diagnose the codes
Component Test--- to find a problem

The vehicle has to be road tested with
scanner along & you to explain things
& look at all data

You do not need codes to work on any vehicle
& find a problem

If all you do is drive it & never do any Preventative
Maintenance,then that has to be done as well

You could easily spend a thousand dollars to straighten
out ALL the vehicles issues, if you have not been working
on it several times a year

You went to Advance
You have the codes they found
Google your codes & read up on the issue

SOURCE: 95 saturn sl 2 5 speed manual transmission, clutch

This vehicle has a pair of shift cables which attatches to the shifter and runs to the transmission shift housing.To diagnose,removal of the center console is in order so you can inspect and verify the shifter/cable connections and movement,then verify the cables move the linkages properly at the transmission . These cables are a fairly common failed part and sold as the set,these are a dealer item and no aftermarket cables are available .

2002 saturn with check engine light on and gutless while losing power goiung up hills

Before you can make an educated repair decision, you need to find out what has tripped the check engine light. Most auto parts stores, such as auto zone, will scan your vehicle for free, and tell you what is most likely causing the light. You can take their suggestions as to what is wrong, or post the info they gave you here, and go from there!
