Got in touch with Saturn service. They told me this was a common problem with this transmission and that it was the THROTTLE BODY. Transmission does not have to be pulled to fix, throttle body can be removed while in car. Price quoted was $1400 +/_, including labor. Got local tranny repair shop quote for $650. Letting them do it.
Thanks for your advice, was very helpful.
