Let's start with this go to a auto parts store like auto zone and have them check your car for code's. We need to make sure you don't have any code's. Most of the hard shifting I have seen on the saturn S model have been too high of transmission operating pressure caused by a bad pressure regulator in the valve body. Let me know if you have any code's before we go any further.

If you could get me the exact number's that would really help me help you. That way I could get you trouble trees etc. Everyone justs want's to replace or rebuild those saturn S model transmission's. That's hardly ever the fix though lol. Get me those exact code number's so I can help you out with your problem.
