95 Saturn trans

I have a 95 saturn SL1 and I have two problems. 1) I know that there is a problem with the transmission. sometimes when I shift the car into reverse too fast it will hesitate and then slam into reverse also sometimes when I go into 3rd gear (around 35-40mph) the left side starts to shake.2) I believe this problem is a power issue. alot of times when I am sitting at idle speed or while at idle if I turn the steerng wheel or trun on the head lights the tachometer will begin to drop down and just continue to go up and down. Can anyone offer any suggestions for me please, thank you

Before I condemned the tranny I would be checking all the motor mounts. Probably not the the problem, but worth checking.

How many miles on it? Is the tranny serviced regularly?

95 Saturn transmission

I didn't always have it serviced regularly until last year and it has 122,000 miles on it.
