The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.


is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

My BT50 Mazda truck won't allow me to go into 2nd gear, it's really difficult and you need a lot of pressure on the gear stick, first gear is difficult too... Just had the clutch changed a year ago... Any...


check the box turret where the lever pivots for gear selection. IT may be loose here and not allowing proper alignment with the shift rail. The problem is that the shift rail selector for 1st and 2nd is not sliding freely and it is controlled by a position de dent ball that is spring loaded . Check the manual but there should be a plug on the side of the box in line with the rail that when removed will have a spring under it and a ball. IF the spring is deformed -replace it as it may be jamming the movement of the ball. At this point I do not believe that you will have to go into the box or that it is a clutch problem. A clutch problem would be indicated by not able to get 1st gear but second is synchronised so there would be little difficulty in that selection. The lever would be free to move also.

Sounds like you have a bad shifter or a bad slave cylinder. Check the fluid in the reservoir and if you're losing some, then you need to see where the leak is coming from. If it's at the slave cylinder, you're in for an expensive repiar.

1986 ford ranger transmission not going into 1st or 2nd gear


If third, forth, and fifth work OK then there could be a selector problem. Does the gear stick go into the correct position? If so then selector and or other internal problem which will require removal

Only reverse works. No foward gears.


No forward movement in OD or D, but L2, L1 and R work: Forward sprag is broken. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

Do you have manual 1st? If so, can you shift through the gears...i.e. manual 1st to manual 2nd then 'D' then 'OD'??? Only 1st and 2nd gears use the forward sprag unless the LO/Rev clutch is engaged...i.e. 1st and 2nd if in "drive". If you can shift threw the gears manually then, yes, your forward sprag broke.

If no manual 1st then your sprag is not what broke. Sounds like you blew up the rear planet. If you pull the pan and find chunks of iron and steel, then that is probably what happened. If you have reverse then it is not the pump. If the pump was bad you would have no line pressure and it would slip in rev. or no rev. Not the beef sun shell either because you have rev., a broken sun shell would cause no 2nd, 4th and rev. gears. Either way the trans needs to come out and torn down and it will be easily found what went. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Shifter stick kept popping out of gear. eventually ended up with just reverse. the car runs and starts however, it sounds like a grinding noise when i try put it into 1st or 2nd. the noise is coming from...


It sounds like the hyd. clutch is not working. If the clutch won't release then you can't get the transmission in a gear while it is running, without that grinding noise.
