    Same thing just happened to me today. Was driving and as I approached a stop sign noticed the rpm were working but the speedometer was not slowing down, I shifted it into neutral and coasted into a parking lot. Came to a complete stop and put into park. Popped open the hood of the car and did not notice any fluid leaks, smoke or noise. Wouldnt there be noise if the transmission stopped working?? Now its in my drive way with no clue of whats wrong.?

Sound like you need a new trany I would recommend junk yard for cheaper trany cause it would cost more to rebuild.

2005 Dodge dakota transmission fluid light, wont go over 40


Yeah, generic "circuit malfunction" codes, it's a bad solenoid or two or valve body, either of which can be fixed by a HONEST transmission guy with high end diagnostic gear CHEAPER than a new tranny. OR...you can check solenoids yourself as you replace tranny fluid/filter, new fluid and filter did it for me once

Transmission slips after engine warms up


It isn't when the engine gets hot, it is when the transmission fluid gets hot that the slipping starts, due to wear of the clutches and gears inside the transmission.
First, check the fluid level to make sure it is full. If it is low, bring fluid level to full and see if that helps.
About all the owner can do with slipping automatics is trying a transmission fluid and filter change to see if transmission revives and stops slipping. The bottom pan is removed, fluid (about 6-8 quarts) is drained, and a new filter is installed before the pan is replaced with a new gasket, sealed up, and fresh fluid added. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes the transmission is worn too bad to help, and you are left with looking for a replacement transmission.
Check the fluid level first. Good luck.

I have a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee, I have 1st gear manually from a complete stop,same with 2nd. But when I put it in drive, the engine revs at 3500 rpm, but I only travel 5-7 mph. Tcm trouble code p0700...


sounds like low transmission fluid, a dirty filter or both, to check the fluid level, open the hood leave the engine running put the transmission in neutral with the parking break on then pull out the dip-stick labled trans, wipe it off with a rag plug it back in then pull it our and look at the level. To see if there is a dirty filter look at the fluid if it is darkbrown or black and it smells burnt then you need to get your transmission flushed and the filter changed.

Well i got a 1994 mercury sable i checked the transmission fluid and it was fine but didnt know that the car engine had to be hot before checking the transmission fluid. i drove about 80-100 miles then...


If you have topped up the fluid whilst hot and it still has this problem then you have a gearbox fault hence the check light.It seems suspicious to me that the last owner told you the light was nothing.Some gearboxes have a filter you can change out which can solve gear changing faults.

I have a 1993 Tracker and the auto. transmission when it goes into 3rd gear slips for a while. When the tranie warms up it's O K. So when it slips I pull it back into 2nd until it warms up enough. What do...


Check trans fluid with engine running - if low, top off. If fluid level is fine then try changing the transmission filter located inside the transmission pan. You may also have an issue with dirty trans fluid - if it is not pinkish but brown then have a transmission power flush done, then change filter.

Roar on acceleration from stop,once it makes the first shift,seems to be fine. Possibly low on fluid? Is this transmission serviceable?


Yes the transmission is serviceable. Let the engine warm up and then check your fluid level. If the fluid is dark, smells burnt, or feels gritty you should change the fluid and filter. Sounds like a clogged filter making first gear slip. Watch your tach and see if it revs high on take off this will show if you are slipping in first gear.

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.

1999 jeep grand cherokee transmission


This is called limp mode chrysler did this to protect the transmission without leaving the owner stranded by the road,a few things will cause this mainly putting the wrong fluid in the transmission,they use only atf+4,or the govenor pressure sensor is acting up which should cause a check engine light to come on,or the transmission just needs a fluid and filter change,should be done every 2yrs or 36k miles,due the fluid and filter change about 40.00 but if you have the wrong fluid then the whole system needs to be flushed and refilled-transmission-torque convertor,radiator and cooler if equipped and all lines.
