Hi, I have a 1995 Saturn SC1 SOHC. Just recently I was driving to the movies and I came to a stop light.
Normally when I brake it downshifts from two to one,
then idles normally just below one. When I came to
that stop light it downshifted from one to one and a
half, then idled at one. This didn't feel normal and
ever since that night it keeps downshifting below one.
Is this normal? Or is it suppose to shift above one
and just below 2? Basically it downshifts harder than
usual. I did a tune-up because I thought that was the
problem, but after I did that it still downshifted
irregularly. The performance button is not on, its set
to NORMAL. It shifts normally when driving, its only
when I come to brake is when it acts up and downshifts lower than one. Could the transmission be going? It feels like it surges down below one, then it idles fine. Any thoughts? Also a new alternator and battery were replaced, along with new belt and tensioner.
