2001 Trooper Tranny Problems??

I have a 2001 Trooper 3.5 LS. Approx. 112K. When Its cold the vehicle will chatter at 40-45MPH (shift form 2nd to 3rd gear). I have taken it to 2 reputable transmission shops and they can not replicate the issue. Today I was heading up a steep hill and the vehicle started chattering a bit more than usual and the check engine light came on. After getting up the hill I pulled over shut the vehicle down and started back up. The check engine light went off and I have not seen it since. I was told by one of the shop techs that this might not be a transmission issue be something with the engine.
The key thing that I tell everyone is that it only happens at the first drive of the day and only chatters between 40-45 MPH. I would love any comments or suggestion on what this most likely is since I have a job that takes me on the road over 100 miles a day and do not want to get stranded.

Thanks for any help....

    My is a 2001 isuzu tooper S 4X4 with TOD(98,000 miles) started with a sort of bang noise between 2nd to 3rd trans. now it rattles and skipps, vibrating the whole jeep - espectially moving from a stop position when fast take off is applied on trottle. at other times it acts as thoguht the engine left the transmition behind and all I get is high rev on engine without corresponding tog from the transmission. Check trans light comes on some times and goes off at other times especially when engine is turned off and on again. Am based in Nigeria, good mechanics are very rear arround here....

My Lincoln ls shifts very hard from 2nd gear to 3rd gear . what is the problem?


Hi David. I am a big fan of starting with the cheap and simple fixes first. Some people find that a low transmission fluid level caused the problem you described and when they simply added a little transmission fluid, they solved the problem. Like your car oil, transmission oil can get dirty, only with transmission fluid, dirt can clog the filter and the control body of the tranny system. About 70 % of all the auto tranny problems are solved by changing the transmission fluid.

However, on a Lincoln site, one person stated:
"I had my tranny fluid changed which made it shift even harder. the mechanic told me to take it to Ford and have them reset the computer. So I pulled the battery cable off for a minute and put it back on to reset the computer. Now the car shifts like it should... Try this first, its free".

On the Lincoln forum, Tom stated, " the Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid Pack needs to be replaced. This seems to be a common issue on the transmission you have. There are 3 pressure control solenoids & 4 shift solenoids in one plastic part ,made by Bosch. You remove the trans pan,the gasket is reuseable silicone You remove the filter, You remove approx 7 -- T30 bolts, holding the solenoid pack & one 10mm electrical connector bolt. HPN-9L2Z7G391A about $400 for the part and add on labor. Add in some new Mercon V and filter kit and your good to go. "
Good luck.

Good

I have a 1999 Chevy 5.3L Silverado Z71 4x4. My truck is having transmission issues. In drive (D) it shifts 1-2. During that shift it hesitates before shifting to 2nd and rpms rise. It will not shift to 3rd...


that should be a 700R4. probably a broken sunshell inside the tranny. need to have it rebuilt. Mine only cost 250 bucks for the parts, but the tranny guy is family.

Cant shift in to 2nd gear but all other gears


Is it a Manual Transmission or Automatic? If it's a manual, it sounds like your syncro's are going out on your transmission for 2nd gear. You will probably need a rebuild or replacement.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.

Transmission problem


I had a shifting problem. The car would start in the wrong gear and shift at wrong times. I repaced the governor postion sensor and tranny fluid and the problem has been fixed for several years. Did you replace the tranny fluid?
