Your car is in failsafe mode. I would definitely have a check at the computer, normally you would smell beuning at the compuer. They are known to have faulty/leaky trnasistors.

I have a 2001 MIT MIRAGE 156,000 miles on it Automatic , on my way to work the service engine soon light came on, checked the transmission fluid it was low but its not wanting to shift gears after it gets...


I think at 156 your trans is due for a rebuild

Real simple

Has the fluid been changed every 3 years or 30 to 40,000
miles since new? If not your done,worn out clutches

That goes for every vehicle in the world that are automatics

You have a check light,that should be something your familiar
with, so get the codes & proceed as you have in the past &
diagnose the system fault.

The code may be a different issue & not the trans problem

Personally having once owned a trans repair shop at 156,000
I would just pull the trans & rebuild it or install a reman

I have a 2001 mitsubishi mirage with 1.8l engine. transmission won't shift out of second gear. Go's in reverse but won't go forward until in second and won't shift out of second gear.


Is this an automatic trans?Does this mean that it just revs in 1st or drive unti it goes into 2nd?Shifts are determined by having sufficient trans fluid in.That the internal valve body is functioning,that external shift solenoids are working,and that the speed sensor on the trans as well as the TPS on the throttle body are working correctly.apart from this they do wear out internal parts and then do these types of things.
Check the transmission fluid level while idling in park with the handbrake on.also if the fluid smells burnt and/or looks dark,it is time for a rebuild.Could you supply some more info,what was the trans like on last drive prior to fault,did it just start up and do this or did it begin while driving?

Your transmission has gone in to a limp home mode or fail safe mode, trans computer has locked third gear to prevent any more damage. Needs a diagnostic scan to confirm fault code could disconnect battery for 10 mins and drive to see if problem reaccures. Trans computer common to fail.

Can't find "Auto.Trans. Control Relay" on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 liter / also maybe "Elec. Control Unit"? Vehicle isn't moving as it should, very slow in drive. The shift letters blink...


My research brought me to a schematic, which showed the location of the A/T control relay. I called the dealer to verify, using part # and location. The part is on order, I will intall it myself.

Thank You

1990 Nissan 300zx w/ shifting issue


well Im sure theres a ton of miles on it-do u perform reg maint like checkin fluid level-u may need the throttle cable ajusted that hooks to trans-band n clutch could be out of measure too--trans hydra-valve system could be worn--see all these things effect the way the fluid makes the gears move--a pressure test can confirm an aging trans

300Zx will not shift out of 5th gear


is there any pedal pressure when you step on the clutch? I had a similiar problem with my 91 300zx tt....it was stuck in third gear, no pedal pressure on the clutch whatsoever....i had cracked the pivot ball and the clutch slave 'popped out'. i had to pull the trans to fx the problem because i could not reattach the clutch fork onto the release bearing with the trans in the vehicle....you need to bleed the system...gravity bleed the slave until there are no air bubbles. make sure you top off the clutch master cylinder in the process.....then bleed the clutch operating cylinder.....it is in the passenger front hood near the power steering resivoir....top off the clutch master cylinder again. i hope this helps.

I have a 1994 mitsubishi mirage 1.5L with a 5 speed manual in it and i was wondering if i could put a motor and transmission from a 200 mitsubishi mirage 1.8L will fit in my 1994 mitsubishi mirage. if not...


By memory I think in 2000 models MMC has changed the engine from E-W direction. Concerning your reverse gear can you tell whenit stopped working? Is it only the lever that is not going to the far right. Is 5th gear getting in easily? How is the trvel of the gear lever in the neutral channel?

Truck wont move in gear [manual trans] why?


push the clutch pedal all the way and see if the slave cylinder pushrod is going out at least an inch, if not replace the slave cylinder, if it does goes out, sad to say but you have problem somewhere else inside your clutch assembly
