Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Car won't go into gear, only neutral

Within a matter of days, No Warning lights, between 40-65 mph the car would studder and act like it was choking, and then it would be fine until I had to slow down or speed up. Car was working yesterday, now this morning car starts but only neutral works. Won't go into drive or reverse. Looks like there's too much transmission fluid but how can that be if I needed to take it in for an oil change and hadn't put any fluids in?

Too much trans fluid would not prevent it from going into gear. Do you have a check engine light on? This is probably going to be expensive. Get it to a transmission shop.

SOURCE: no reverse when engaged., slow to change gears when driving in drive,, i can here it takes longer to shift.

Most likely the "reaction shell" teeth are stripped. This is a common failure in the 4L60E. The transmission will need to be removed, and the reaction shell replaced. Any reputable transmission shop should be able to replace the reaction shell. They may advise you that your transmission needs to be rebuilt. Either way, it is somewhat of a costly repair.

SOURCE: 2000 chev s 10, v6, 4wd, wont go above 40 mph. had

Had the same problem with my 1999 Blazer (S10) a baffle broke loose in the catalytic converter causing exhaust blockage while accelerating. When idling or driving slowly the baffle did not shift enough to cause a problem. Replaced the catalytic converter from Pep Boys (direct fit) for about $150. Had to get the gaskets at NAPA though. Runs like a top now. Hope this helps. PS: sell the catalytic converter to a recycling place. Good for a few bucks due to the platinum in the converter.

SOURCE: automatic transmission will only shift manually

This is a sensor issue. It can be from a couple of different sensors. The VSS, or vehicle speed sensor is the main one. Loose or faulty wiring can cause it, a faulty PCM can cause it, or the Throttle Position Sensor can cause it.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with

I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

The car runs fine when it starts. But when it has a hard time with starting. The whole system shuts down, all warning lights come on and panel does not operated properly. Then car starts running rough,...

I would first have the computer checked for trouble codes AFTER the problem occurs.
It will be very difficult for a mechanic to fix if the problem can not be duplicated.
