    I have a 96 Saturn SL2 with 55,000 miles on it. It started to have a
    delay of about 2 or 3 seconds when shifting into reverse. The forward
    gears are fine and it shift into drive fine. The fluid level is ok
    and doesn't smell bad. Any ideas what the problem is? Is it costly to

    I have a 92 that makes a thumping noise when you shift from foward to
    reverse It sounds like it might be the same problem.
    Would you pleaswe let me know what you find out? Jeff

    this is a well known problem with saturns from that ear, and it has been
    brought up in here 1000 times. The valve bodies on those saturns go.
    I think the valve body is around 500 or 600 US dollars, a bunch of
    money in labor. I had that problem around 100 000 miles and since
    replacing the whole transmission was 400 more, I ended up doing that.
