You'll need to look at the clutch release mechanism and make sure it's moving as much as it should be. If that doesn't fix it, you'll want to get a new clutch.

    If it is an automatic, take a look at your solenoid pack. We had a problem with our transmission gears in our Automatic Dodge and we had to replace the solenoid pack.

Pull that filter off again and you will see transmission shift solenoids.
Sounds like one or more is bad.
Google and youtube this topic first so you can get a better idea.

1997 eclipse with trans problem


This is most likely going to be a huge problem, that will require the rebuilding or replacement of the tranny. I recommend you have a local transmission shop diagnose it and give you an estimate.

Transmission issues with my 97 eclipse GT-S


you need to bleed your clutch. make sure the cap is on all the way, then have someone press the pedal to floor, open the bleed valve to let air escape and close it back. repeat it 3 or 4 times and it should take of your problem.

I was driving on the freeway going up a slight incline when the engine seemed like it was winding up but wouldnt shift into the next gear. It also seemed like it had less power and there was no O/D. I...


Hi there,

You definately have a transmission problem.

When was the last time the transmission fluid was completely replaced? Trans fluid is CRITICAL for proper shifting operation. The measuring of trans fluid is also critical and must be measured in a certain way (engine warm, selector moved through all gears, then finally left in N, while checking for hot level).

Your trans also has a fail-safe function - when a fault is detected, the trans will go into "LIMP" mode. This still allows driving, but will usually remain in 3rd gear. In this instance, the "N" (Neutral) light on your dash may also flash.

If you are technically inclined, I can provide your with instructions on how to check your trans computer for fault codes...

Let me know...


Cheers,

What are some issues to look for that would cause car not to move in any gear, but you can feel it wants to go when raising rpms. Could this be the trans is gone or something minor. Helping a friend and...


Lets assume the park brake is off. If you put it in gear, forward or reverse and the engine revs but care doesn't move, you are either very low on automatic transmission fluid or the transmission is burned up. Check the fluid level. If normal smell the fluid. If it smells burned, there is no doubt that the transmission is burned up.

Check your automatic transmission fluid first, see if it is full and or smells burnt. If it is low that could be the problem, but if it smells burnt the transmission is going bad and should go in the shop.

Auto box issue


I have an applicator chart that says 1992-1996 Diamante only had 3.0 ltr engine available,and the chart also says that the 3.5ltr was only available from 1997-2004.So either my chart is wrong,or you have a LATE 1996 that is actually a 1997.Either way,my chart says the 3.0 ltr engines used an F4A33-1 auto trans and the 3.5ltr's used an F4A51 trans.You ust recheck your vehicle to verify all the specifications.I would rebuild the trans that's in there,but i am a transmission rebuilder.Getting a used trans is kind of iffy,as you may be getting junk or a high mileage trans.As far as interchange,contacting a junkyard is the best way to go as they have interchange manuals.I would try and stay with the same year model and same vehicle.My chart says that the F4A51 also came in 96-05 Eclipse's...will it work in your Diamante?I don't know.I do know that an 05 trans won't work in your 96 model. Best way to go is rebuild your trans,or get one from a remanufacturer like Jasper Engines and Transmissions.
