Time for a transmission rebuild i had the same problem it was the hydraulic pump that shifts the gears

Posted on Dec 09, 2008


The problem is the input and / or output sensor on the left (driver side)of the trans. They are approx, $30 each from the chrysler dealer It's recommended to change both at the same time

It could be several things like Torque convertor,faulty vacuum control etc.Make sure the vacuum hoses ,including the engine are in good condition as an engine vacuum leak will affect the auto as it needs a good and consistant supply of it,this supply of vacuum comes from the engine manifold and runs to the trans.Must be plugged in and in good condition.Make sure you have a good vacuum by unplugging with the engine running and see if it sticks to your finger like a tiny vacuum cleaner.This is a cheap and hassle free check to eliminate a possibility.Oh yeah,if vacuum no good ,rectify and it may help you out

1991 toyota tercel 1.5 automatic trans. drove to my nephews house and then back home "17 miles round trip" about half mile from home car wont shift first gear to second

Jorge, as richie46 recommended check trans, fluid level. At higher mileages,150,000 the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Twice the engine light has remained on when fired up and the trans. has stuck in first gear for several miles then light clicked out, gears changed then worked perfectly

If the "check engine" light is coming on, there is a code, even though the light goes off, the code should be stored. If it stays in 1st gear I'm guessing you may have a stuck shift solenoid. Have you had the trany fluid changed lately, is it full of fluid? Check the fluid with vehicle in "park" on level ground, with the engine idling, it's best to do this at operating temperature. The manufacturers usually recomend changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. It could be something else too the transmission shifting is controled by the computer. The computer gathers information from various sensors on the vehicle and tells the transmission when to shift. I guess I would get it to a shop and have the codes read to find out what is going on before you have major trany problems. It could be the vehicle speed sensor, throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor, coolant sensor, etc. Good luck.

Transmission is not operating correctly when cold. The RPM's are above normal operating levels prior to shifting. After the vehicle travels a couple of miles, all is fine. Normal operational RPM's are...

The PCM is allowing torque converter slippage until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature because cold transmission fluid is a drag on the engine and causes it to burn more fuel.

Transmission sticking after hwy trips over 15 miles

Change and flush your Transmission fluid. Sounds like your governor is sticking! I think battery would come on if you overcharge battery too, that will definitely detroy your battery, in that case regulator will be bad. Rev your engine and see if cahrge to battery is > 14 Volts DC.....Sorry I dont own Domestic JUNK anymore, so I dont know if your alternator has an internal or still exteranl regulator. 1990, probably internal... I will reconsider domestic once they have improved quality,, they've been saying they have for years, but it's all BS! They still ****... hope I helped out.
