Having transmission problems with my 2004 Saturn L300 4 cyn Front Wheel Drive Automatic.
Looking for advice, and information on how best to correct:
Under hard acceleration such as trying to get up to speed quickly when, entering highway, during passing or climbing steep grades, the transmission will not shift properly. What normally happens is that the RPM's go up but the car does not go any faster as if the transmission is slipping. It helps somewhat to try to shift it manually by letting your foot off the gas, but not always. Some days seem like the problem is resolving itself, then others it appears worse. Been experiencing for a couple of months. At last oil change, they suggested that I try to have my fuel injection serviced and if that didn't work, then try transmission flush tune up and maybe change my spark plugs. Idid and it seemed to help somewhat, but I don't think that was what the major problem was. Going to take it back in, but wanted to see what I could find out on my own, so that my attempt at fixing the problem will be the most accurate.
ANY help or suggestions would be most appreciated! As most everybody else, I don't really have extra cash to throw out there for unsuccessful repairs! THANKS!
have the same problem?
