My automatic transmission would not shift gears unless I shifted them my self. I bought the car that way and have driven it over a year now. Well I got tire of shifting an automatic so I bought another transmission and had it installed. It still does the same thing..... WHY?????? ...... It has to be something simple. I am disabled and this is my only car. I can drive it fine, but if something happens to me and my wife has to drive it then we are screwed. She just can't seem to learn to shift the thing.

Re: 1994 Geo Metro Automatic Transmission
There is a transmission controller that is located under the dash beside the right hand side of the steering column. It is held on to a bracket by two 10mm bolts. A change in that transmission control computer will make the transmission shift like new

there are R, 1,2 and D gears, all 3 dead?
the automatic transmission is failing?
so tell the full story.
1: i get in car start engine and select, drive,
2: i step on the throttle pedal, the RPM goes to 1000 and stops
engine bad,(100 related reasons) weak engine.
2b: I do same the RPM goes to way over 3000 rpm engine screams
in bar stool words
this is called transmission, bad. (for 100 reasons)
1: make sure shift cable works like new, read the FSM on the checks.
2: make sure levels are correct per the operators guide, do not guess.
read the guide and do it right. not like engine checks. of oil at all.
if fluid pink or red, or brown and black or black and full of metal flakes.???? ever do a tranny serviced (full) this DECADE? hummmmm........
3: fuses good. all fuses.
4:if here, RIP tranny
my guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.
is it slipping,? if the rpms rise and car dont speed up , in direct proportions that is slip. is it? if the engine has full power in 1st, the the transmission is bad.
not sure what shift manually means, Drive to low? low to high. what? be exact in statements/ better stated what it does good and bad, and when. all modes. are you saying the trans shirts perfectly in AUTOMATIC when cold./?
Auto Trans I had to replace solenoid in transmission there are two of them when you drop the pan. After testing with a 12 volt battery one was bad replaced and transmission works fine. Mine was a 1996, cost about $90 for solenoid.
