    We have a 2001 Kia Spectra that sat for a year because of poor acceleration and white smoke out the tail pipe. It turns out that the catalytic converter was clogged. Be careful, some will try to say it is the transmission off the top, because it costs more to replace.

Sounds like your tranny is going out. what i would do is take it to like auto zone and have them do a check on the cars on board comp. if anything is wrong with the car it will give you a error code and a print out what the causes. write back with that code and we can help you better. :)

Transmission problem with a 2007 Mazda cx7


This indicates a problem in the transmission control module as it is not activating the solenoids/servos and consequently the sensors that read turbine speed and output shaft speed are not reading the correct difference of the two units . Have this checked out at an accredited auto transmission shop.

Where is the tranny dip stick on the 1991 MR2 5SFE 2.2 5speed located?


You have a manual 5 speed S54 transmission. It does not have a dipstick for transmission fluid like the auto transmission.

The filler bolt is located on the transmission facing the firewall to the cabin.

The drain bolt is facing outward right near the driver side axle input.

Transmission oil was low, so we added to fill level and it helped for 1st, and a little in 3rd, but still no 5th gear


Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!

Shop one of your pick and pull yards for a tranny. You will diffenatly have to pull it out to fix the gear,unless it is just in the shifter which won't press the shifter fork in the transmission far enough press the 5th gear into mesh(or into gear).
Sounds more like it might be in the gear shifter. Linkage worn or stretched, or a bushing out of the linkage. Take the plastic console off and look at the action of the shifter if it has alot of freeplay when trying to put it into 5th gear I would say, Get a junk yard shifter.
If you go into transmission It has to be pulled out of car to dissassemble it and it really is a job for a transmission specialist. Get a Junk yard tranny and just replace it. They usually give a gaurantee of some sort with the tranny.
