Need help with a Saturn Sign In

I'm not a car person...I have a 2000 Saturn 4 dr SL2 auto. Every time I hit 3 RMP my car jerks and drops to 2 RMP. It's does it at 30 and 40 speed.

Is that normal or is there a problem?

Not sure. Is the car just upshifting and you aren't used to it?

I may not be use to it. Upshifting sounds like it. It only happens when I hit 30 and 40 mph. My RPM gauge goes from 3 to 2 each time.

OK: If not used to it that could be common shift intervals and yes RPMs drop when it goes to next higher gear. Some may feel a bit abrupt to you and be normal or not normal. I don't know how from here to suggest on what level of abrupt is normal except to have another with you or another drive it who would know from similar cars if normal or not.

Check or have checked the level and color of the transmission fluid. Should indicate in its safe/operating range and not be dark or burnt which would be a bad sign. Normal color for ATF is pinkish/red if you put a drop on white paper,
