The 2008 Saturn Aura XE came with a 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. The transmission in your Aura does not have a dipstick, so to check the transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the transmission case. In general, the transmission fluid should maintain operating level and health for 100,000 miles, but the transmission may require service sooner if the Aura is used in severe conditions like extremely hot climates and hauling or towing. If the transmission fluid is low, add only genuine Dexron-VI automatic transmission fluid.
Things You’ll Need: Floor jack, Jack stands, Socket set, Ratchet, Drain pan, Transmission funnel, 1 quart Dexron-VI transmission fluid, Thread sealer, Torque wrench
