What is wrong with my '98 SW1?

Asked by Jul 07, 2015 at 10:28 PM about the 1998 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SW1 Wagon

Question type: General

I have a 1998 sw1. It runs really well till
recently. It's an automatic but it seems like
some days when I step on the gas it doesn't
shift properly and at times gets almost to
the red on the tac before shifting to the next
gear.  Other times it seems to have little to
no pick up or power when the gas is
applied. What is wrong with it? Could it be
something as little as a clogged fuel filter or
maybe some transmission fluid is needed?
I am afraid of driving it because I don't want
to mess it up. What is going on with this
car?

what's the mileage on the car and have you ever had the transmission fluid changed filter replaced you can start there. I would use Mobil 1 trans syn fluid I used it on my SC2 and shifts smoother but these transmissions always shift funny this is my third SC2 and all shift funny like they can't find the gear sometimes but they just operate that way?
