Lost Over-drive???? All of a sudden I just noticed that my t65 tranny is not shifting into overdrive. It acts like when I put it in 3rd or drive, it goes through all 4 gears just as smooth as ever, however, does not shift for the 5th time regardless of speed. Symptom, you can tell when you leave shifter in 3rd gear, it goes through all 4 gears just as smooth as ever, and you can tell your still in 4th by letting off the gas going down a hill and you can feel 4th is slowing down car and tack sl

At cold start: reverse doesn't work until I put it into drive and hit the gas. Then reverse works. After taking off it seems to be stuck in 3rd gear. Car takes off slowly like it's in 3rd gear and never shifts even up to 50mph. I just put on a new speed sensor, bought from the dealer. Old sensor was shifting gears, but doing it hard and at the wrong time. Transmission has approx. 55k miles on it. Car is Hyundai Accent 2001


First thing to do is change the transmission oil and filter. Then see how it acts. You may be surprised...but it's a good start either way. ... 2001 Hyundai Accent

Transmission problems i own a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue and i has a service engine soon light come on, hooked it up to the scan tool and it said shift solenoid b (performance or stuck off) is this what the problem is i was told it could actually be the pressure control solenoid of 02 sensor. when driving there is almost no power in drive i have to put it in 2nd gear. i believe im not shifting into 1st gear or 4th because at highway speeds my rpm is running around 4000 very scary if you ask me....

Stays in first gear at high RPM's Will shift fine when I let off the gas and all other gears shift fine. Trans oil is clean and full. Traction Control off light is on and will only go off when car is in park. Stay off for about 5 minutes after car is put into drive. Cruise control has also stopped working. Everything worked fine a week ago, Checked all fuses and rebooted the ECM by disconnecting the battery. Check engine light on. Code says I need a new oxygen sensor.

'94 Isuzu Trooper, transmission went out, sounded like i ran over something and parts blew out of it. Has 175k miles on it. I was able to drive it home in 4th gear only by holding pressure on the gear shift (manual transmission). And the engine ran so smoothly all the way home, always has. I'm really asking for an opinion - should I put the money in it for another transmission? I know you can't foretell the future but what would you do? I really enjoy driving the old Trooper, love the 5-speed st

Why does my ford crown vic engine shakes when I start it up? When I put it in reverse or drive it hesitates when i accelerate especially going up hill. When I'm braking it feels like the tranny is having a hard time down shifting into first gear. I have changed the throttle positioning sensor, spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, and i also got it put on a smoke machine to see if I had a vacuum leak. No leaks were found. I have not changed the spark plug wires in a year and a half. I found a li

My pickup starts fine. did a tune up , put new wires, cap- rotor, fuel filter, spark plugs. When i drive or shift the gear, the car is jerking or when I'm driving on the freeway at about 80 km, the car starts to cut off power. Looks like the fuel is not going into the injectors. soon as i let go of the gas pedal it stops jerking. Then i have to drop the speed to 50 km or to the speed where the car runs smooth.

My van slides when you put it on drive and when this happenens the service engine soon light was coming on. my question is do I need to replace the trnsmission or could it be a sensor because when it's on drive all the gears shift very good.But, when I stop on the red light its sleeps again.

I have a 1994 metro 3 speed auto. Veh has 48,000 miles. Trans fluid has been change. Problem is that some times you have to put the shifter in low to pull off, because it is in high gear. You then shift to secend then high. The change is smooth. After the veh is driven a while it will change into first on it's own. Now when the weather is rainy you need to do the shifting manually no matter how long you drive. NEED SOME ADVICE. THANK YOU

It started out not shifting..gear light comimg on. Then it was not starting off in low gear. would not pull up driveway. now won't crank.. I can disconnect and reconnect battery and will crank but won't stay running when I put it in drive... have been told that it is the transmission sensor. My dealer said that the part is covered by drivetrain warranty but not labor... He said that labor would run about $400 plus anything else they find... What should I do?

My 1999 GMC Jimmy makes a whining sound only when it is in gear. I got underneath and it sounds like it is either coming from the starter or the bottom of the bell housing. It starts up without a problem, but when I put it in Drive or Reverse it makes the whining sound. Also when I am driving down the road if I am coasting it will not make the noise, but if I give it gas it starts whining again and the more gas I give the louder it gets. The transmission shifts very smoothly. Any ideas?
