How do you fix the transmission of a 99 Saturn SC2?

That would depend on what is wrong with the transmission. Repairing an A/T or a Manual transmission is a repair that requires skill, knowledge, and training, in other words a professional. Take it to a trusted independent or Saturn dealer. Avoid chain transmissions shops. As you don't state the problem, about all you can do yourself is change the fluid and filter if you have the skill to accomplish this. If you are experiencing rough shifting or hesitation, change the fluid and filter or have it done.

What does it mean when you're leaking transmission fluid in a 1997 Chevy Cavalier?

A couple things 1st check the transmission pan for oil leaks and change the gasket also change the filter while you are in there if that is the problem. 2nd check the transmission lines that goto the oil cooler on the radiator, these are short hoses approx 6-10 inches in length that allow fluid to be pumped to the cooler and back to the transmission,they are known to rust out right in the bends. They are also a factory item so you would have to order from a dealer or make your own with the correct fittings,transmission hose and hose clamps.. Good Luck hope this was helpfull
