For several months I have been having issues with my car not shifting when I back out of a spot and go into drive. In order for it to shift into drive, I have to shift to L and then 2, then drive. Now all of a sudden the "Check Engine" light is coming on. Anyone know what may be causing these issues? Thanks. Is this expensive to fix? This really has been happening since I got the car in Oct 08. This only happens when I stop somewhere and then have to back out (or even go forward) and then shift

I have a 2000 chevrolet blazer that has a very odd shifting problem. When I start the vehicle up it appears as if drive and third are burnt out. But when I start moving I manually shift into third or drive and it works fine, even after coming to complete stops. But when I take it out of drive or third it refuses to work again unless i move up from second. Can a solenoid cause this? Im not sure but I always thought if a solenoid was gone it would affect the whole transmission? and also wouldnt al

Problems with a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport shifting properly: I've replaced my plugs, sensors and the alternator twice in less than one year. The Montero blows white smoke when accelerating. Smoke can also be seen blowing out of the wheel well of the passenger side. When driving between 10-15 minutes at 4K RPMS the Montero will finally shift. I took our vehicle to O'Reillys to see which codes would be flagged and the only thing that came back was the transmission circuit. When I took our vehi

Hard shifting after highway driving 1998 tahoe. After driving on the highway (mostly in hot weather) after coming to complete stop the car shifts hard at about 10 mph. Ramdonly does this from time to time. Feel like the rear end is coming apart. After you get your speed back up its fine. Could this be caused by the speed sensor? No trouble codes or ck engine lights are showing up.

Hi, I have a 2006 Acura RL. At least once a day, when coming to a stop (in front of my house) after driving, I try to shift the car into park, or reverse, and as I am shifting, the engine rpm races to 1500 or 2000 rpm. I still shift the car into park or reverse with the high(er) idle speed. I assume that this is not good for the car. I thought the problem might be the idle air control valve, but this car might not have one. Do you have any ideas what might be causing this? I don't mind gu
