My transmission is stuck in first gear but picks up once in a while, also my speedometer went dead shortly after the first sign of transmission gear shift problem, I read that if i fix the speedometer things would be normal again or do i have to do something else like changing the electronic shifter unit or some other electronic device connected to the transmission, like shift selonoid c ??

2000 KIA Spectra/Shuma 1.5 Auto Transmission not changing gear. Hi, My auto transmission just started giving problem 2 days ago. First time I notice the problem is when moving off from stop in "D", the gear seems to be on 2nd gear so it's hard to take off. If I then manually shift to 1st gear, then the power is there. While driving the gear also seem to be stuck on 3rd gear; not shifting to 4th. But these does not occur all the time. Sometime it ok. I notice this. If the gear is giving problem,

I have trouble with the transmission. My Ford Windstar 1998 has 114 000 km. It seemed to be stuck on the second gear. I had up some 'special transmission oil' very thick and it seemed to help because the first gear now works. I will flush the transmission this week and had new transmission oil and change the filter. Will it solve the problem ? I have done some research on the Internet and it seams that it's a commun problem with the Ford Winstar model.

I have a 93 Nissan Altima (AT transmission) and while driving my car....sometimes the speed ometer stays on "0" and the RPM goes up while I have my foot on the gas and it sounds like it is stuck in first gear. Then after a minute or so it will shift over and the speed ometer will go to normal and you can hear the gear switch over & the car will also **** a little while it goes into the next gear. Does this sound like it needs a new transmission?

I have a 1992 saturn sl1 twin cam with 140,000 miles. The transmission has been a little jumpy recently and a few times it would randomly get stuck in first gear while i was driving. i would turn my car off and back on and it would run normally again, which led me to believe it was electrical, i don't know much about cars, but i figured it was my tcu or a sensor or something. but this morning i got in my car and my "Shift to D2" light was on, and my car was stuck in 2nd gear. it ran fine, other
