Most Saturn's have a filter that looks like and oil filter
usually right in front, often black in color and in some models hidden by the battery tray, but easy to replace

If you are below 100 psi then you have a major leak inside the transmission. These will read upwards of 700 psi and require a special gauge to check line pressure. As far as fixing this there are limited parts available for this transmission and a replacement unit is big bucks. Take the car to your saturn dealer and see what they will do. These have a 5 year 75,000 miles warranty for the transmission, and most of them are covering up to and past 100,000 miles for customer satisfaction. If you dont know much or anything about this transmission do not attempt to repair it. Let the trained professional tech at saturn take care of this.

It should be on the drivers side and it looks like the oil dipstick. Usually the top of the handle is shaped like a " T ". Most of the time it will be yellow and say trans on it. It may be lower than the oil dipstick. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2003 saturn ion-release does not work for trunk release

If only the trunk release is not working, did you check to see if the little lever arm switch on the trunk lid at the latch assembly is switched to enable the release? Mine came switched to the 'Off' position when I bought it and it took me a few days to figure that one out.

What caus upon acceleratione my 2004 saturn ion occasionally slip out of gear at a stop then it will jump back in gear upon acceleration


Check your transmission fluid level. It may not be possible for the average owner to do this, as Saturn transmissions are made to he used for 100,000 miles, then serviced for another 100,000.
So they don't have a dipstick .
If you have had any leaks under it, it most likely is low .

special needs and procedures for changing lube.
some, it must be done a s special temperature. < yes.

ever seen and FSM. (for doing factory service)
it shows all the steps, 1 by 1.

there are 10 service bulletins on this trans-axle
TSBs (read them all)
see the special additive yet>?
quote.
Notice:
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of

cause internal trans=axle damage.
Important:
Add one unit (10 CC syringe) of DEX CVT additive (P/N 22697447) whenever an unrecoverable loss of fluid occurs during an authorized limited on vehicle repair. Minor fluid
loss, such as minor drips that may occur during the fluid checking procedure, does not require the addition of the additive.

I want to look and change my trnsmission fluid on


Take the driver's side tire off and look straight over the rotor to the trans and there's a plug bolt that needs a hex socket to get it out.

Dealer says it uses Dextron III trans fluid, not gear oil or motor oil like in some smaller cars.
