Auto Trans I had to replace solenoid in transmission there are two of them when you drop the pan. After testing with a 12 volt battery one was bad replaced and transmission works fine. Mine was a 1996, cost about $90 for solenoid.

Auto transmission have a cluster of gears which could be considered clutches when the go bad usually first or reverse gears will be the first to quit working . The same for a stick

The transmission shifts both electrically and mechanically. The computer senses the shift points via throttle position with the secondary cable running from the topside of the transmission. But the mechanical linkage you'll notice while looking there is also supposed to not have any extra slack while in Drive {with the engine off}, refer to the Chilton or similar manual on the exact manner of setting the shifting mechanism.

He said it was an automatic transmission, exactly what kind of Master Mechanic thinks an automatic has a clutch?

    You mean one of the clutch packs inside the Transmission? True, could be.

1992 geo metro automatic transimssion problem


Your probably looking at a transmission rebuild. But it is sporadic. Could be a valve body problem or solenoids. and electrical. Throw it on a scanner and find out.

92 geo metro with automatic transmission will not go out of 1st gear sometimes


my guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.

Transmission module


automatic transmission, right?
dont shift , impliese but fails to say, by whom.???
on mine a 5speed manual stick, it can't shift by many a way.
ill take a wild guess and its an A/T
Don't shift.

ok, now I scratched head, do you mean
it stuck in 1st gear.
or did you mean its slipping , and feels like in neutral at all times.
or skips gears?

during these early transitional years, they had 2 transmissions
the newer one is electrically shifted.
and going farther we need to know what trans is really truely there.
we are blind here and cant see what you have.
if your car is a TCM shifted tranny (TCM is tranny brain,puter)
it has scan codes. so dump the tcm error codes.

http://geometroforum.com/topic/5011680/1/#new

or log into alldata.com and read the TCM page.
its not a secret , all metro FSM cover this.
fsm means , the Factory service manual. get one.
or log in.

1994 geo metro automatic transmission wont shift manuallywhen warm.


is it slipping,?
if the rpms rise and car dont speed up , in direct proportions that is slip.
is it?
if the engine has full power in 1st, the the transmission is bad.

not sure what shift manually means,
Drive to low? low to high. what? be exact in statements/
better stated what it does good and bad, and when. all modes.
are you saying the trans shirts perfectly in AUTOMATIC when cold./?

My 1996 geo metro wont shift into fifth gear

I have a 2000 metro the trans shifts hard when you first start up from 2nd to 3rd. But after that it seams not to shift down from 3rd no matter how many times you spot and go again.


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

95 geo manual tranny have had problem down shifting to 1st gear for couple months now 2nd is getting hard to downshift and upshift have replaced rubber bushings bolts etc.on shift linkage adjusted etc.


Sounds like your synchronization rings inside the tranny are wearing out try changing the transmission oil and adding product like lucas oil treatment , if it helps lay off the downshifting until your ground speed matches your engine speed for the gear your ring to go in. like really slow speeds ...
