2000 32RH dodge ram van 1500. Shifting problems. Could shift it manually after problem arose. Then wouldnt catch third. Not slipping. Clutches seem ok when in the gear. At first i noticed it when it didn't downshift into low when stopped at a light. Had to manually drop it to low when taking off. Then started not shifting into third. Manually yes. Now it wont even catch third. Also downshifting through accelerator... nothing... no gear

The transmission is hanging up in 2nd gear and not shifting to 3rd, 4th etc. It does not downshift to 1st when the car comes to a stop. I can manually downshift to 1st, upshift to 2nd, but it will not shift manually to 3rd,and 4th. Any suggestions to fix?


The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist ... 1993 Honda Accord

When coming down a hill to stop at a trafic light, when your foot is taken off of the accelerator and pressing the brake, the convertor stays locked and as the trans is downshifting the car is difficult to stop without putting into nuetral. The convertor still being locked up keeps pushing the car while trying to stop. Very much like a manual shift car and trying to stop it without pushing in the clutch.

Constantly stalls I have a 2001 Daewoo Nubira with manual transmission. The car is very difficuly to start. After starting the car it must have the engine spinning at higher rpm's that normal for the car to go. If the gas is pressed too hard the car will stall. If I am sitting a a light or stopped in traffic I must rev the engine to prepare the car to go when I need it too. The problem is must less noticable running in 4th or 5th gear on the highway.

I have a 1998 4runner sr5 v6 4x4 automatic w/overdrive. My problem is when I come to a stop, the transmission doesn't want to downshift. So when I accelerate from a stop, the transmission isn't in first gear and feels like im in 3rd. I have to put it into low 1 myself and shift manually and its fine, until I stop again. The engine light will come on when its acting up . But sometimes its fine for days with no problems and no light. I'd appreciate any feedback and thank you


You have a broken wire or bad shifting solenoid inside your transmission... Short of replacing it, there's nothing else you can do. (and yes, this will kick on the check engine light)Best regardsCk ... 1998 Toyota 4Runner

Automatic transmission on 2000 Savana 1/2 ton is hanging up when stopping and not going into 1st gear. I can easily get it into 1st by shifting into neutral and putting it back in drive. This gets me back to 1st. If I don't manually take it out of gear it bangs hard when taking off from a stop, as if it is downshifting into 1st at that time. Other than that, the transmission shifts well through all other gears.


Have the trans filter& gasket changed. Valve body maby sticking fresh fluid and filter might help. ... 2000 GMC Savana

1984 Buick Riviera: transmission is 'bucking' and started mainly in overdrive. Now it's in every gear (automatic). Sometimes it does not downshift into a lower gear when braking; then have to manually move the gear lever to a lower gear, wait (not giving any gas) and then feel it downshift to continue (sometimes have to stop, put it in park and start again but that's mainly after driving about 1/2 hour highway).

Transmission slipping While driving after about 10 min. the trans will slip causing the rpm's to go up. Then when you stop the car acts like it is in 2nd or 3rd when trying to go again and there is a whining noise when you hit 30 to 35 the noise goes away and the trans seems to be fine. I have even tried to downshift manually and start from a stop in 1st and the shift and it seems to do the samething?


There are several issues that need to be addressed. I imagine that the trans oil and filter have not been changed in a while so that is a first step in fixing the problem. trans oil and filter should be changed every 50,000 miles for atf oil and 75,0 ... 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

I have a 2-door 97' GMC Jimmy and my batterie keep going dead fast so my boyfriend unhocked it and hocked it up to his charging machine and when he put it back in the car must of thought it was being stolen because my tailights are blinking, headlights, dash lights and it wont stop beeping, even when the car is off. I looked all threw the owners manual and couldnt find anything on what happening. IS there any way i can reset it or anything? I just really need this to stop.


Un plug the negitive side of the battery. then put the key in the ignition and set it in the "run" position and reconect the battery. that should reset a factory alarm. you can also try using the key to unlock the driver door from the outside too... ... 1997 GMC Jimmy

The speedometer will stop working which in turn the transmission stops shifting normally. I have to run the car up to 3500 to 4500 rpm's before it will shift and when it does it goes from 2nd to 4th, After this happens I then have to downshift manually which brings the tranny down into 2nd gear and when the rpm's are around 3000 I will upshift and the tranny goes from 2nd to 4th gear and runs great on the hiway and then somedays the tranny will shift like it doesn't have a problem at all.

My 1998 Olds Bravada has violent shaking at 0-30 mph with no shifting of the trasmission beyond 30 mph. RPMs up to 2100 after 30 MPH. After 30 MPH and approximately 25% of the time I can manual shift into neutral and then back to drive and the shaking will stop. Also when slowing to a stop, sometimes you can feel a bang of the downshift. When gradually accelerating everytime, the problem persists. Bravada was running fine with no problems, and just one day all of a sudden, this problem occu

I have the following problems on my 2000 Mazda millenia - #'1 & 2 just started yesterday 1)Having to break 50 feet in advance in order to come full stop. 2) while at idle or in park, engine is revving wildly. 3) lock on driver's side door will not lock when pressing the lock button, must do so manually for individual door.

1999 GMC Sierra The electrical door opener stopped working. The door continues to automatically lock when the truck is driven but I must manually unlock it to get out. The remote door lock and unlock continue to work but neither the passenger or the driver side toggle switch to unlock the doors is functioning. Everything was working well until earlier today. Nothing unusual has occurred. Is there a relay switch or something like that that could have burnt out?


You have a broken wire & this usually occures at the flex point of the wiring harness on the drivers side door. This happens because the door is opened 10-20 times more than any other door. Peal back the outer casing & expose the wires. Recon ... GMC Sierra 1500

Transmission stops working when truck warms up When truck is driving for roughly 20 minutes to an hour and is warmed up, it downshifts itself into second gear and must be shut off for a period of time before it is able to resume driving at regular speed. Had it at the shop three times, each time the truck is put on machine for electrical reading the speed sensor code comes up as the problem, this is not the problem though because it was changed in one of the trips at the shop.

4-3 downshift on manual 5sp transmission binds at times. almost like being locked out of gear. after rpm's go around 1000 or less shifts like they day i bought it. no up shift concerns. also at times vehicle will have a small vibration when coming to a stop and the vehicle will be locked in either first or second gear depending on what gear you were in at the time. only way to get it out of gear is to yank like hell or shut the vehicle off.


Your gear needs pressure plate and clutch disc replacement as well as the release bearing, you can only do that by pulling down the transmission assembly, another thing when you pulldown the gear make sure to change the shaft oil seal as well... ... 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

I have a 94 grand cherokee lmtd and at first from a stop it wanted to start in third gear. one day goin down the highway it downshifted to passing gear and stayed there for about 20 seconds and then shifted back. From then on it was slipping in and out of gear while in drive. IN reverse it would slip really bad and make a really loud whining sound. After about a week reverse doesn't want to work at all and drive barely does. I ran a manual code check on the OD light and got codes for Governor Pr


Have it checked on a transmission scanner. Chances are though that there is an internal pressure loss that is changing the shift points and debris in the valve body that is causing the strange happenings. Likely from what you said the converter locku ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS 5 speed manual, non-turbo. Speedo and odometer stopped working. Replaced the sensor and it did not fix problem. Replaced the gauge and it did not fix the problem. Was told that whatever drives the sensor in the trans must not be working. Car needed a new transmission, anyway, so we replaced the transmission. Speedo still is not working. Mechanic is very good with Mitsubishi but says he is stumped. Odd thing is that there is actually some movement in the Odometer

1988 cavalier 5 speed manual transmission 2.8L engine. It is quite difficult to get the transmission into first gear. You must push quite hard on the shifter and it may take a couple of tries.
