Swapping trannies isn't that hard, but for a first timer I would give it two days without help. Rudy and I should be able to do it in under 8 hours, actually I would venture a guess in at around 4-6 hours (Vueboi and I can pull out motors in 1hr15min)

I don't think that I can dumb down the sixthsphere instructions, but if you take it step by step it isn't as daunting.

6 hours for sure.
I dont even think it took us that long to do my tranny swap when I popped it in nov. of 07... damm that was a long time ago!

Definetely 1:15 to pull a motor if you don't need to keep all the hoses and everything intact and none of the bolts are rusty.

Done it too many times :(

Why don't you just beg everyone for money to fix the car you can't afford to maintain?

this is off a saturn fans

NOTE: This proceedure "can" often cure a delayed engagement or reverse (reverse slam) in Saturn autotransaxles PROVIDED you have not waited "too long"

The "works nearly everytime" cure for the reverse "slam"

1. Change the transaxle fluid and filter (use "conventional" not synthetic fluid)
2. Add your choice of automatic transmission fluid additive (transmedic, Lucas etc...personal choice, Prolong auto transmission additive)
3. Start the car firmly set the parking brake, chock the wheels and or back it up against a firm immovable object (A brick wall works well)
4. Put the car in REVERSE and LEAVE IT THERE, RUNNING, IN REVERSE, for about 20-30 mins at idle.

What this does is use the clean transaxle fluid and additive to flush out the reverse passage in the valve body by simulating driving in reverse for about 10 miles. IT WILL NOT HARM THE TRANSAXLE OR ENGINE IN ANY WAY. After completing this proceedure, (99 times out of 100) your reverse slam will vanish for at least several months and maybe forever (actually usually forever is a better description) Maintain the transaxle correctly from that point forward. If it initially does not work for long, you can REPEAT the proceedure without changing the clean fluid and sometimes net good results BUT if after 2 tries things have not improved you are probably looking at valve body replacement. YOU MUST CHANGE THE FLUID FIRST! Doing this with "dirty" fluid still in the transaxle may actually make it WORSE. Also "normal" transmissiopn "flushes" WILL NOT cure this problem, as they don't feed enough "warm" clean fluid through the valve body for long enough.

what do you guys think?, i've noticed my car slams abit from first to second nothing i would seem majoy but i'm wanthing to changes my trans fluid i'm at 155k and bought the car at 127K and i duno when the last time it has been done, worth doing now in the winter or wait till spring? also thinking of using a little lucas lube, what your thought on that?
i'm goin to add this to DIY's hopfully it helps someone including me, seems to have worked for alot of people

I thought I already posted.. but i may have forgot to hit submit.. lol

For less than $250 you can fix your own transmission. Do your input shaft nut and get a rebuilt VB..take you less than a day.

Take your wheel, splashguard, strut assembly and the side of the trans off.. Get a new nut, torque it. Get an OEM trans side cover gasket. Get a new (rebuilt) VB, take the battery and tray out, top cover of trans off, take VB out, new one in. There is also a process for speeding up the relearning due to the new VB.
