Disconnect the battery cables for 24 hours to reset the control mod if that doesn't work you may have a mis-aligned filter or dirt in the valve body on the tranny

work the gears from park to low a few times, sounds like you have air or bubbles in the system, did you happen to change the tranny filter when you changed the gasket ?

Our 1998 chevy cavalier z24 slams into gear from neutral to drive and second gear to third gear. when it's in park and i put my foot on the gas the rpms don't increas steadily...it increases and decreases...


You need to take it to the shop to be repaired this is not going to be an easy fix. It is probably going to have something with shift solenoids or fluid pressure. Have the tranny serviced by replacing the filter and flushing out the system.

95 dodge dakota having hard time shifting.


Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.

Wont shift out of second


When it shifts to third does it just feel like neutral? If yes it will need rebuilt again, you hurt the 3/4 clutch.

Tranny pan gasket replacement problems


The (top hat) is a filter seal. If you did not change that seal then you may have damaged the old seal(still in the trans). You can remove the pan and take the filter back down. Look at the seal close, I would replace it. You can bend the old one, carefully with a screwdriver and get it out of the trans case. Tap the new one in with a socket. If your fluid is black,or there is metal in the pan then you have damage and the trans will have to be rebuilt.

you might have the module checked but it sounds like the tranny is going out on the van

Wont shift


check to make sure you did not knock off any vacuum lines and also make sure the transmission fluid is not low and if it smells cooked replace the fluid and the filter because the screen in the filter could be plugged and it is not getting fluid to the torque converter but check the fluid first
