You need to check the transmission fluid level, if it is low the tranny will not shift. If, however, the fluid is to the proper level then you will need a new transmission.
Try putting new fluid in and look for a leak in the pan gasket, then all you may need is a transmission service. When the service is done the mechanic will look for pieces of metal in the old fluid, if found this is very bad and you will need a new tranny.
You might consider a new or used car, you can definately find a good deal out there!

My ford F150 won't shift from 2nd to 3rd. Does anyone know what could be the issue?


Usually the transmission needs to be rebuilt in that situation. It's a very common problem if that's the famous automatic overdrive transmsission. AOD I have had three trucks that have done that. It usually starts by shuttering when it shifts and than finally goes out. Sometimes the Lucas transmission treatment gives you a little more time, but it sounds too late for yours. From what I understand (mechanic told me) that when the overdrive goes out, it takes third gear with it. If you drive in hilly areas, that overdrive is shifting in and out all the time as you go up and down hills and wears it out. My Dad had that hapen on his F150 and he replaced his transmission with a junk yard transmission that turned out to have the same problem. I had that transmission replaced with a Jasper rebuilt and it worked great. I think it was $1300 for the rebuilt trans with the old one core trade in. I think when 3rd gear goes out, you can only go about 45mph without over reving the engine. I saw that same problem with a Ford Crown vic with that same transmission and 302 engine that my neighbor had.
Did your third gear just go out all of a sudden or were you getting like a shuttering or kind of a grinding sound when it shifted?

Transmission won't shift out to 3rd or overdrive quit in middle of driving


This sounds like its time for a rebuild, sounds like something let go, you could also have a stuck selinoid for that gear, or the clutch plates blew apart, this truck would need to have the computer scanned for codes to see if its a seloniod or speed sensor, if not then the trany would need to be opened and checked, hope this helps.

I have a 91 volvo 740 I am having a problem with the transmission possibly. Its an automatic with only about 150k miles. It starts and takes off in 1st and 2nd but is sluggish and feels like its switching...


check the oil level of the transmission
that transmission does have an overdrive relay
that relay may be faulty

get the transmission serviced and if found in bad condition
cheapest fix is
source a good used automatic transmission and have that fitted in


cost of a full rebuild on these transmission is more than the volvo is worth
its a lot of km./miles
sounds like the third /overdrive part of the transmission
is slipping or worn

1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift into overdrive.


4th gear failure is a common problem with this transmission, assuming it is an automatic. You should have the vehicle checked for codes by a qualified repair center with the proper scan tool. Also, check fluid level and condition. More often than not, the trans loses 3rd and 4th gear, as these are working off the same set of clutches. 3-4 clutches apply in 3rd, and when the 4th shift is made the 2-4 band applies giving you overdrive. If you have no engine braking in manual 3rd, you definitely have a mechanical failure, no 4th could be an electrical, or mechanical fault.

93 taurus overdrive not working


IF you have checked the fluid level and it is good then if you look at the fluid on the trans fluid dip stick at it is a dirty brownish color then your transmission is bad. If the color is a nice clear reddish and the fluid level is good then Overdrive is probably gone. Replace transmission or drive it until it quits altogether.

Automatic gears


Honda transmissions,as well as most other overdrive transmissions,should be driven at all times in drive 4,or the overdrive position,with the exception of severe driving conditions,such as towing a load,extremely hilly terrain,or long uphill grades,the trans should be taken out of overdrive,and placed in the drive 3 position.This is to prevent the perpetual shifting back and forth of the trans from 3rd into 4th,back to 3rd,back to 4th,back to 3rd,that would eventually damage both the 3rd and 4th gear clutch discs and components.
