Is it a manual transmission? No specific gear to be in, just keep the RPMS up. Try downshifting if you are going to slow.

Tom wear can I look on my Saturn to find out if it manual? I am not sure but the gears I have are P R N D I L

I believe it is a manual


Then you have an automatic. If the car goes too slow up hill, push on the accelerator more to have the transmission downshift, should d be automatic. If it doesn't, it might be time to have the car look at by a mechanic, there might be something else going on. Transmission, engine issue, etc. Any other drivability issues?


How did you get a Driver's License without knowing the difference between an automatic and manual transmission?
