SATURN SL1 FUSE PROBLEM

2001 Saturn SL1 • 192,000 miles

Okay I have a trans issue. I replace it with another one and it seem to have the same issues as the one I took out it has a delay when you put into reverse for and 5 seconds and then when you are driving it it shift kinda hard out of third and really hard out of fourth into overdrive I also did notice a shutter noise when it goes into second. I get a pending code of p0732 I have add the lucus stop slip in it but if does not seem to do any thing for it. The trans I got from a junk yard and have contact them them told them they gave me a bad transmission they told me that the car it came out of was test driven before they sent it to me and it shifted fine for them. So I am at a lose on what is wrong. Please help

You unscrew the transmission temp sensor and hook up the pressure tester there. Then get the engine up to operating temp read the pressure at idle in park?Then idling in park pull the line pressure fuse what is the pressure now?Then put the line pressure fuse back in and restart the engine. Then at idle put the transmission in reverse while watching the transmission pressure does it go up fast or delayed?Also what is the pressure reading at idle in reverse?Now put it in drive what is the pressure reading?Also what kind of scan tool do you have?

Okay I hooked it up and it is about 75 to 80 psi put it into reverse it jumps up to 225 then drops to 75 then right back to 225 put into natural I hear a hard clicking noise and it is at 95 when I put it into drive I get 110 then when I shut the car off it jumps from 75 to 200 then back down to 0 the scaner I have is a genisys evo okay the vin I gave you was off the block not the trans sorry the other one that I found is 8tz176912

The line pressure fuse is right in the under hood fuse box labeled LP if memory serves correct. Get me back the pressure at idle in park with the fuse in and with the fuse out. So far sounds like the pressure regulator in the valve body is bad.

I also need the 8th digit of the vin number on the transmission?

The 8th digit would be two numbers back from the TZ?

I dont undrstand this part you told me when I put it into drive I get 110 then when I shut the car off it jumps from 75 to 200 then back down to 0?What gear position is the car in when this happens?I have never seen the pressure shoot up to 225 then back down to 75 then back up to 225 when put into reverse.

Also with your scan tool can you buzz the transmission actuators?
