Slipping transmission. why would my transmission be slipping even after changing the fluid and filter, It feel out of gear going down the road. I parked it and killed it. then started it up and it would go in gear but had no pull. The overdrive light is flashing and it will barely even move in any gear.

Hi have a 1996 Prado automatic. When the over drive button is depressed it changes erratic, you can be traveling along at say 100 kph & it will change gear randomly. Have had the oil changed with new filter, the trans flushed, & fault codes checked. A code was found for the trans & the Toyota dealer replaced a sensor which has made it a lot worse than it was. It also holds in gear longer than it should when you drive normally. Any help would be great. Thanks

2001 Kia Sephia automatic trans seems to be stuck in second gear, when manually shifted into first, starts off perfectly fine. When in drive, very sluggish on the take-off and does not shift out of the gear it's in (maybe second gear). Doesn't shift into high gear. At 65 mph, rpm is approx 4000. Changed filter and fluid, added slick 50, problem still exists. If it is a solenoid, how difficult is changing the solenoid?


Alot of people have the same problem, including me. Changing the transmission fluid is not going to help this problem. THe transmission filter is not something you change as much as you clean and reinstall, its just a metal screen. Call Kia and ask ... 2000 Kia Sephia

The transfer case on my 1998 ford explorer will not come out of 4 low. The switch is not allowing it to change to 4 high or automatic. I was wondering if there is any way to find a scematic diagram of the 1998 ford explorer sport transmission or if there is a solution besides replacing the transfer case? I have done what the ford manual has suggested and it is still stuck.

Does the car have over 60,000 miles? if so have you changed the fluid and filter in the transmission? worn out fluid can cause these and the filter starts to plug and starves the valve body of fluid, hence the delay. ... 1994 Ford Aspire

Hi, I have a 1995 Mitsubishi Galant automatic...it seems to only drive in high gear, like it is not shifting. When you put the car in drive it seems to start from a high gear and not change out. Was told that the park/neutral switch is bad, would this cause the car not to shift? (shifter is between the seats, and it will go into drive without the key) must be a bad p/n switch...but, if I put the money in a new one will the trans. start changing like it should? Thanks for your help! Wanda

1995 Dodge Avenger. 2.0 liter 4 cyl. 166K miles. The automatic transmission will shift down into a low gear and get stuck there. Can't change with the shift lever, accel/decel, O/D switch, etc. Have to stop, turn off the engine and start again. Worse when hot. Or if its in the low gear at a stop, it is hard to accellerate.
