My 1991 300 zx non-turbo automatic transmission is stuck in third gear. one day i started the car and when putting it in drive it is really slow on take off. it has 0 acceleration. i dropped it in first and nothing changed. reverse works fine. when on the highway going 60 the rpms are at 4000 the over drive on or off makes no difference. i got it up to 120 mph at 7000 rpms and it would not shift. letting off the gas the rpms fall as if it were a manuel transmission. any suggestions?

I have a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT with the 5.3L V8. The vehicle stopped running while driving on the highway. It acted like it was running out of gas.

I have a 1998 Chevrolet C1500. 305 ci V8 with 4-speed automatic transmission. Aside from minor wear and tear, the truck has been great to me. Odometer reads almost 329,500 Km, and the block and transmission are original to the vehicle. The transmission was having very rough shifting (1st into 2nd mostly), and would 'bang' when accelerating from a slow speed like approaching a red light. It now whines whenever the engine runs. The transmission is slightly overdue for a service, but otherwise n

It still seems like something is slipping in 4 wheel drive. When I floor


Putting it in four wheel drive does not eliminate the transmission. Honestly, it sounds like the transmission is on it's way out. A 4l60e in one of cars was acting the same way. It required a rebuild. ... 1998 Chevrolet K1500

Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.\015\012Change the filter and ... 1998 Chevrolet Tracker

I have recently installed a motor and brought it back to life.The engine runs smoothe without any missing and drives without any issues until it gets to the operating temperature. At that point if you go to stop it bucks and jumps and stalls as if it were a manual shift transmission and you didn't put the clutch in when you tried to stop Then the engine will rest

Need to isolate a speed sensor on a 2000 VW beetle (2.0, non turbo automatic). Car is in limp mode, have PO715 hard fault and P0722 pending codes. There are 3 sensors, would like to find out specifically which might throw this code on the 01M transmission. With cleared codes the transmission will work into overdrive for a while before retripping, so clutchplates, gears, and solenoids seem okay.

How do you adjust the transmission bands in a 1991 dodge spirit 2.5 turbo with an automatic transmission?


The only one you can adjust is the low reverse band & it is accessed by removing the transmisson pan. You will need a feeler gauge & a wrench to adjust it. You can get the proper adjustment data from Chilton or Haynes manuals. Good luck! ... 1991 Dodge Spirit

1999 Mercury Cougar with automatic transmission, car was running fine, then it wanted to shift while driving, and the speedometer dropped to 0, with jerky motions. Same thing 3 years ago and dealer said they replaced the instrument cluster for $700. Doing research, doesn't look like that could have been the problem. Can you tell me what to look for? Possible speed sensor or transmission range sensor?


ONe thing to check is that your throttle position sensor (TPS) is working as it should and that the electrical connections to it are clean and tight and that wires associated with it are intact. When your TPS starts misbehaving by sending the wrong ... 1999 Mercury Cougar
