    An add on to my problem. I have a P reg 1997 300tdi land rover discovery, has done 105,000 miles. It shudders very violently when driving. This is in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and a little in 5th gear. It runs perfect on idle and in motion at any speed when ever the clutch is depressed. Engine mounts are all intact and when engine is revved when parked everything is as it should be. The shuddering is only when I accelerate with the revs between 2000rpm and about 2500, (I never rev it more than that) in any gear. I have been told it might be the thrust, or release bearing on the clutch or a worn clutch plate, but it changes gear without any effort and smoothly. But when clutch is lifted and throttle applied it feels like its going to shake its self apart. I have crawled underneath and everything seems in place, but there is play, rotational and very slight up and down in front prop, or drive shaft at the transfer box end.

    I would appreciate any advise, or known cause of the problem, also if problem is known, a fixture price or any advise would be great.

    Please write back. Thank you

The clutch may be worn out or four wheel drive may be on constantly on make sure also if you have been driving in muck that brakes are not stuck

The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.


is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

Will not shift into 2nd gear on a automatic trans


Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmision is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the underhood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.

What is "limp-home mode" ? This is a fault mode in which the transmission either loses electrical power or the PCM deactivates all of the electronics. The transmission will default to max line pressure. The driver will have Reverse and 3rd, with manual 2nd available by putting the gearshift in 2 or 1 (doesn't matter). 1st, 4th, and TCC lockup will not be available. It will not hurt the car to drive it like this for short periods, but use manual 2nd to get the car moving, and be aware that the trans will generate more heat than normal while operating in limp-home mode due to increased torque converter slippage during 2nd gear starts and no lockup in 3rd gear.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Only runs in 1st and 2nd gear and reverse.

No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : ShiftA solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

Car goes into gear but feels very sluggish like the brakes are dragging, but it will roll easily (starts out in 4th gear), you manually shift to 2 to get it moving, once it's moving you put it back in OD and the car shifts 3rd to 4th on its own and locks the converter at the appropriate time: ShiftB solenoid failed: Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.

4L 60E - 2001 k1500 will not shift into 3-4. Oil is not burn't and stifts great into1-2


  • No 3rd or 4th gear: “3-4” clutches are worn out. R&R. The car is safe to drive (in 2) until you can get it fixed.
  • Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust.

Check to see if your transmission is in the limp mode, which would only give you 2nd, 3rd and reverse gears. No 1st or 4th gear.

Transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.


Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.
