Holden comm ute 96 automatic put into reverse but doesnt move just revs


I suspect that changing the tranny oil will not solve your problem. At best when the pan is removed to change the oil filter you will probably find clutch parts in the sump. However having said that take it to a tranny shop and have the pressures tested before doing anything else

2001 Pontiac Sunfire , you start the car and it starts fine no probs then put it in drive hit the gas & it won't move or it could drive okay but when you stop at a set of lights and then try to drive...


When was last time trans fluid & filter was changed? Sounds like trans filter is clogged, hopefully not badly. If it's been happening for awhile you might need trans replaced/rebuild.

Engine revving, but car moving slowly until higher gears


Check fluid level and see if it smells burned. If you do not work on it yourself, have a good reliable trans shop check it out. Usually the repair shop you use can recommend which trans shops do good work.

1996 pontiac sunfire SE transmission


Well It's one of three things and with out seeing it it's totally a guess. it's either the shifter in the car Doubt ful or one of the 2 cables broke possible or something on or in the transmission broke. I'm really can't help you more than that. If you can physically make the shifter do through the "tree" pattern then I would say it's not the shifter it's self then it would have to be one of the other to things. If the shifter is binding it's either a cable or in the transmission

Good luck...

No free website, a factory manual will have this detailed picture, also a pay site like ALLDATA.COM would have it.
