I would undo all of it / unplug all of it and see what happens.

2008 PT cruiser automatic not shifting into Drive. Seems to be stuck in a lower gear. What needs to be done? Thank you.


Do you have a check engine light on?
Most current automatic transmissions will be put into a "limp" mode if the electronics detect a fault in the transmission. That is, the transmission will go into one gear (usually second or third depending on how many speed ranges the transmission has) and allow you to drive it slowly to a service department or transmission shop. The intent is to prevent further damage by continuing to drive with the problem. It's possible the problem is relatively minor and inexpensive to repair, but continuing to drive it will almost certainly cause more damage (and be more expensive) to repair.

I have a 1996 GMC Sierra 4X4 truck, have had a harsh 1/2 shift after 8-12miles of driving. Yesterday started engine put in drive accelerated slowly turning out of driveway felt/heard loud mechanical clang...


Hey Dennis.
Opppsss.. was this transmission serviced regularly?..no, ok.. this is a common problem, you will need to take it to s QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL to get the trans rebuilt..
If you live near a local drag strip, go there, ask the drag race mechanics who the best transmission man there is?? There is always one or two the drag racers relay on.. I would trust him to get it done right (BEFORE I would trust a "chain" transmission store!!!!!)
I, personally, have had two transmissions do this.. one a 96 suburban and a 95 Silverado.(both inherited and never serviced).. I found the guy that did mine this same way.. GLAD I DID.. it was less $$$$ and great work!! If no drag strip.. ask the custom car guys...

When driving down the road it drives fine until you come upon a stop light and take your foot off the gas to hit the brake then it dies.


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

Transmission won't shift out of 1st and service engine light comes on. goes in reverse and park. goes in drive , just will not shift.


Hi Cindy, As the engine check light is coming it is indicating a problem. Have a diagnostic scan carried out and let your technician determine the actual fault. It could be something to do with the state of engine tune or a defective speed sensor, but may also be a problem with the gearbox. Regards John

When sitting at a light upon takeoff the engine reves up like its in neutral and slams into gear (automatic ******),or whilke driving at speed upon taking foot off gas seems to downshift


The first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level. If the level is low, you need to find out WHY. It is leaking somewhere...ether from the transmission itself or the transmission cooler lines. If the fluid level is OK, then you need to scan your onboard computer system for possible fault codes that will lead you to the cause of your problem.

I have a warning light that came on today, looks like an engine but is lit solid not flashing, I checked the fuel cap and it is fine, should I stop driving it?


Maybe. did you check the oil, coolant level. automatic transmission fluid? The check engine light will come when your vehicle needs a major service; such as, Now, this an example, OK. Like change coolant, change the automatic transmission fluid, or change differential fluid, or it just needed 3 month, 6 months, 12 months service check up at the dealship. It could tell you even to rotate the tires.

When the check engine light comes on. you vehicle needs some type of preventive maintenance done to this Volkswagen Jetta. You need to get it check out and have them reset the check engine light. GB...stewbison

Cold engine light on, oil light flashing, bubbles of air on the engine oil stick?


Do not start the car. Tow it to a service centre and have it checked out as this sounds like amajor engine fault that may escalate if driven. If the car has an automatic transmission the drive wheels will need to be lifted or the car put on a truck to stop damage to the transmission when towing.

Hey Cody,
Sounds like its time for a transmission filter and fluid change.. and BEWARE - If the transmission has not been serviced on a regular schedule you may not be able to drive away from the service shop..(THIS IS NORMAL for a GM transmission that has not been serviced regularly -- I have had this happen to myself once on a '96 suburban!!) If you need to get the trans rebuilt ..TIP - go to the local drag strip and ask several of the mechanics who the best transmission man in town is..(THEY KNOW!!)..use him!! It can usually be rebuilt for around $1400.. Good luck!!!
