The same thing happened to my 97 sebring convertable.....i replaced the sensors and i still had the problem. take it to auto zones and have them read the codes from your computer. the computer will tell you whats wrong with it....the shift solenoid on my tranny went out and im still looking to repair it. the solenoid pack is 105-200 from ebay. but good luck finding the info to do it yourself. i been looking for 2 weeks and still nothing. good luck!

Hi, what is going on is the trans. computer is detecting a problem with the trans. The trans. is in limp in mode. It is designed for the trans. to not let the car go past 45 miles per hour. It is meant for the owner to be able to drive the car to a repair facility. As for the revving, the trans. may be slipping due to worn clutches. This is why the engine speed will rise but the car isn't going very fast. If the car is able to go down the road ok, watch the speedo and see if it's working properly. If not, the speed sensor is not working correctly. This problem will cause the trans. to go into limp in mode as well. The fact that the car does not go into reverse, my guess is the trans. has gone bad.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

1988 chev trans takes high rpm to shift from 1st to 2nd and some times it wont down shift when you slow down and hit the gas again


Check the adjustment of the transmission T.V. cable. Sometimes they also stick. Try driving it at 30. Shift to Neutral, stab the gas pedal to the floor quickly a couple of times. Then shift back to drive. Then see if it shift normal.

My 97 chevy blazer won't shift past 3rd gear


Drop the pan, odds are the shift solenoid is out, its located at the front of the trans on the driver side. I'm sure your check engine light is on that will comment about the timing/shift solenoid being bad. I had the same problem with mine. The solenoid had plastic coming out of the inside. To remove it you'll find a small C clip holding it in, just take a small screw driver and pull the clip out. The part cost me like $36 from my local dealership. And its a longer solenoid. I believe its the 3-2 downshift solenoid. I do have the part number if you need it.

Shifting when warm


take your s-10 to a reputable trans' shop NOW!!
you have an internal problem,BUT if you'r lucky,it may just be the "range switch"on the side of the trans(hair dryer needed to heat the "goo"-sealer on the harness plug)

the trans' is in "limp(default)mode,just to keep you moving!!
driving it this way for a month WILL destroy the transmission!!
