Answers :

First check for auto trans fluid level. then check condition of fluid. it should be clear pink
/clear light brown. there shouldnt be any debris insie and it should not smell. if these are ok, we can suspect that selenoids used to shift gears are getting problematic. those should be checked for continuity and resistance values. this can be only done after removing transmission pan. if out of desired values you need new selenoids. before doing those do not listen anybody says you need a major overhaul for your transmission.

My 2004 accent is very hard to get into gear when it is cold outside. The car will not shift into any gear then as it warms up it goes into third then second. Most of the time if warm for a while it will go into first. Even after it is warm however it seems to shift rough then if I have the car warm and turn it off then start to drive it is better and may shift fine for a while then it is rough at times. What could be my problem?

I have to disconnect the tcu harness on my 89 jeep cherokee and manually shift the transmission. I'm getting very aggrivated by it since it skips from first to third and cuts out second all together.

Our Jeep Liberty (automatic) 06 wouldn't shift into gear. We were told it was the transfer case. Got that replaced ($1100+) and two weeks later the same thing happens. We had to get it towed in the second time and they tell us now that the spare tyre that is on the front left of the jeep is a bigger size than the rest of the three tyres and this is why it happened again. Is this true? If so, shouldn't he have thoroughly checked why it did this in the first place and looked to see the tyre was bi

Shifting Problems Hi Folks, My 2001 Yukon XL SLT will start out from a dead stop in first gear and then shift into second gear normally. Between second and third gear when it tries to shift into third gear it revs like it has gone into neutral. When I let off the gas pedal and the RPM starts to decline it shifts into third gear. It will not shift into the over-drive or fouth gear at all. Reverse gear has no issues. Any Ideas??

I'm told that its either the shift linkage or the shift fork for third and fourth. But others have said it could be a little pin that sheared in the synchro. Or the synchro itself. I don't wanna take this thing into a shop if its only a shift fork or some
