MP7 Gearbox Specs
The gear ratios were nearly identical in the MP6/7 versions. The 13-year production schedule is part of the reason that quality was established. The common ratio for gearing is the following:
2.50, 1.560, 1.030 and 0.700
The automobiles that depended on the four-speed gearboxes the most were the SW2, SC, SL2 and SC2 models. After the Saturn brand was discontinued in 2009, no further development was given to the MP7 assemblies.
Noted Problems With S-Series Gearboxes
Binding is one of the problems that can lead a person to believe that a rebuild is necessary. According to GM official documentation, there are ways to correct locked up assemblies. A unit that creeps while in neutral gear might have too little of clearance for the clutch. The hub of the gears might rub against the plate causing an issue.
Binding in reverse was another common complaint. This problem can be associated with bad input hub seals. Holes or cracks can appear in units that are deteriorated. This fix can be completed by a car owner or qualified mechanic in most cases. All inventory for sale here at PreownedTransmissions.com is free of such problems.
