I not completely sure, but it might be your Universal Joints. My 87' Volvo has the same exact problem when shifting from 1st to 2nd. I would get under the car, and check the joints to see if they are loose, or worn. It'd also be a good idea to check your transmission fluid to see if it is low, burnt, or has a burnt smell to it.

Why wont your manual 2002 Saturn shift out of 1st gear?

The first cause of the jump out from one to other gear is the loose shifter fork, which connects the shifting linkage and gears of the transmission. The second cause is loose shifting linkage itself, which connects the gear shifting knob and shifting fork. The shifting linkage and shifting fork become loose due to the rapid changing of gears from one gear to other at high speed of vehicle. The third cause is the misalignment of shifting linkage to the shifting fork.

When driving a motorcycle when your in first gear do you shift up 2 gears to get into 2nd gear because of neautral?

You're not shifting up 'two' gears into second, you're shifting up 'one full click' Neutral is a half click above 1st, and second is a full click. So when driving and you're in first, one full click (shift) will put you in second - not two.
