The clutch is worn out or needs adjustment.

Or, you are just not utilizing the button under the shifter knob, that releases the transmission out of overdrive. You will find that the transmission will keep up with the RPM's if it is not in overdrive.

EDIT: There is no overdrive button for a manual tranny, that's what the 5th gear is for. If the RPMS are going up and the speed isn't, it's time to have your clutch examined.

When you accelerate in a car why does the car change quickly between gears?

If it is an automatic transmission, the speed of the engine (in rpm) is what makes the gears change. Accelerate too much and it will fly up through the gearbox when it is not supposed to. If it is a manual transmission, the gears shouldn't change without the clutch being depressed and you manually changing gear; at most, it will simply disengage and cease turning the wheels.

Does a manual transmission on a Saturn sl1 have to have fluid in it to engage starter?

Your manual transmission does not have to have fluid in it in order to start the engine. Theoretically you can start the engine with the transmission out of the vehicle totally. That being said.... Its not a good idea to start the engine if there is no fluid in the transmission just in case someone tries to move the vehicle by putting it in gear. You do not want to drive the vehicle with no fluid in the trans.
