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 .

My 2002 saturn sl 5 speed sedan loses powerd going up hill on 4&5gear I went to advance auto to check it n they said it something wrong with the air pump or the relay air pump or a air hose


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

Ranger looses power up hill


I am assuming you have the 2.3 liter 4cylinder engine.. This is common in all rangers straight out of the factory with that motor. Your asking alot out of a 4 cylinder truck that also get good gas mileage. they just do not have the capacity to gain speed up a hill. There are a few solutions for you that you could try. If it is a 5 speed manual transmission try to speed up before the hill and when you start losing speed go to 4th gear. this is also good for using as a passing gear as im sure you have noticed you lack power when trying to rapidly accelerate at highway speed to pass. an aftermarket cold air intake combined with a less restrictive exuast will give you anywhere from 5-20 hp gain AND give you more MPG's

Or you can buy a light truck with a v6 or v8 in it. rangers can be equipped with v6 as can chevy s10's. dodge dakotas have the availability of small block v8. this is of course will cost you alot in gas (based on experience) I am a 10 yr mechanic and have owned 2- 4 cylinder rangers a 93 and a 94 my dakota which i still own is a 01

1999 saturn sl2 5 speed transmission will not go into reverse 2nd gear sometimes will not engage is there a linkage adjustment.


There is no 'adjustment' but you can check your linkage for security making sure nothing is loose or worn. Also check your fluid levels. If reverse is completely out and your starting to lose second you will probably need to have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

2002 Saturn SL1 - Losing reverse and second gear


The simple answer is that there are two loose nuts in the transmission.

The output shaft nuts are loose. The are behind a cover that you can see through the driver's side wheel well.
