2008 Saturn Outlook XR 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Just recently having transmission trouble. The problem is that it will not engage into drive or reverse. It just sits and revs up in any gear. I have not did anything with the car yet. Hoping someone can help me contact G.M. and get some help as I cannot afford the expense that most others have went through to get the trans fixed.

Just received diagnostic report from my dealership. Can anyone guess what the problem could be? Yep, it's the 3,5,r wave plate. I cannot believe so many outlook owners have the same problem and GM does not recall these transmissions with a known defect. I'm going over to check the Acadia posts. I bet I will see a lot of people complaining about bad transmissions with these vehicles too.
