Since then, and some times not always, when I star driving it takes longer than usual the shift from first to second gear, and the arrow in the miles it dosen't move at all, it stays on 0 until the RPM goes up to

I've owned our 99 Grand Caravan for 3 years and for 3 years occasionally all instruments would quit and I would pound on the dash and it would come back. About 2 years ago the abs quit and the abs light stayed on constantly. About 2 months ago the abs light went out but the abs still doesnt work. I have noticed that the transmission does up and down shift at lower speeds incorrectly. A year ago the check engine light came on and the transmission shifted extremely hard and I replaced the tra

My 6 cyl automatic transmission stays in 2nd gear at all speeds. The car starts off slowly in 2nd gear and never gets into 3rd which use to drop the rpms down to the normal range. Also the overdrive indicator light stays on and will not go off when pushed. When I put the car in drive 1 the rpms go up and when I shift to drive 2 they don't drop down. The rpms do drop down when I move the lever to D (Drive). The rpms stay up and never shift down when I hit 50 t0 60 mph.

Engine light stays on, every mechanic consulted say that transmission must be overhauled before light can be reset. Car runs great and no shifting problems at all. The car will not pass inspection with engine light on. This car has a lot of miles almost 200,000 but still runs and drives great. Do not want to spend thousands of dollars on a transmission overhaul that really is not needed.

I have an 88 Cavalier Z24 with 5sp man. transmission and a 2.8 V6 with cruise control. The car will not start. I parked it the previous night and went to start in the morning it cranks, I checked for spark and has none. I noticed during cruise speeds like 60 mph shift light comes on and stays on until accelerating or decelerating. Also, I noticed the tach not working while driving, the shift light does not come on any other time like when up shifting. I was wondering if this could be the crank


Yes, the crank sensor is used both for spark timing and tach/shift switch. Check the connector and wiring first. The sensor is centered on the back of the engine. If that looks OK, put a new sensor in. They only cost $14 at autozone. \015\ ... 1988 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

Hello. Begin by having your spyder's computer scanned. You can now get a free scan at any AAMCO shop, and at many auto parts stores. Dealerships usually charge significant change to do the scan so I would go to AAMCO if there is one nearby. The n ... Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

My father-in-law checked and topped off all of our fluids. As my wife was leaving, an "exclamation point" popped up on the dash and now the vehicle is shifting rough. My father thinks that he may have put too much transmission fluid, which is causing the sensor to act up (which is causing the computer to think there's a problem, hence making it shift rough). Can you shed some light what might be going on??? Please help!!


If the transmission fluid was over filled, it will definitely cause the problem you are experiencing. You need to get the vehicle up to operating temperature and recheck the fluid. If it is over filled, drain some out. Then unhook the battery and let ... Mercury Sable

My traction control light comes on and Power Steering is shown in the digital display. Immediately afterward the car a 2006 Chevy Cobalt (Automatic) shifts roughly like a car would when it was low on fluid. Turn the car off and restart it the T/C light goes off and it shifts fine, so I assume it isn't a problem with the transmission itself. Has happened twice 4 days apart.

I have a 2000 Chrysler Concorde LXi. The check engine light came on while accelerating and at that point the transmission would not shift to the next higher gear.

I have a 2002 f150 and the code P1121 comes up on the code reader. Will this have any effect on the Transmission? When I started driving the truck, I shifted it in Drive as per normal but this time it stayed in first gear even though I had it in drive. While driving, I could manually shift it into second and it will go into second but it will not shift into 3rd gear when I shift it into Drive, what could be the problem?

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

Any suggestions??

If the check engine light is flashing then you have a misfire in the engine. Only worry about the CE light. On toyota, the TRAC off light and VSC light will both come on anytime the CE light is on. So once you fix the reason the CE light is on, th ... 2002 Toyota 4Runner
