More than likely it would be your torque converter and not your trans
but you could have the overall dreaded problem that your second gear has grinded its self down and thats why you cant get second gear
no vacumes for the 94 straight mechanical and electrical if there was a vacume you would have found it when you dropped the pan it isnt hard to see around the whole trans cause it would be located next to the speedo with a rubber hose 1/4 thick

1994 gmc Z71 4x4 automatic.****** will not shift out of 2nd gear.What's up?


Shift modulator on the transmission may be bad, or clogged filter. Maybe time to changed oil and filter. Also a simple adjustment on the trans kickdown cable, or a new cable. The cable can stretch enough to cause a shifting problem.

1990 ford ranger 4x4 4.0 had transmissoin overhaul shifted fine at first next day wont shift out if first to second


It is very important to change the filter in the pan, at the valve body, even if you have an inline magnetic filter for the ATF and I will tell you why.

My transmission mechanic Gaby, at Jul's Transmission in Hollywood, Ca. showed me last week a 2005 Ford Expedition 4wd automatic transmission's pan filter that was completely plugged/blocked, where the owner had installed an aftermarket drain plug in the transmission oil pan so that he could do regular ATF fluid changes to keep his transmission running longer.

He did not drop the transmission pan and change the filter inside at anytime. All he did was kill his ******* sooner by having a plugged up pan filter and the valve body was heavily layered in wear materials from the transmission.... His transmission crapped out at 38,000 miles. His FORD dealer had warned him that prior to installing the drain plug in his transmission oil pan, that his warranty was void on the transmission if he did that.

You're absolutely right about keeping ATF fluid clean and that inline magnetic filter for the transmission from BOSS products sounds like a great idea! I am planning to check it out and install one on my newly rebuilt 4R55E 2wd transmission. Thanks for the tip! :-)

Change the ATF fluid and pan filter and put on a new pan gasket once a year/12,000 miles. If you have a 4x4 (4WD) and do alot of offroading or if you do a lot of towing with your 4x2 (2WD) you should check your ATF even sooner and change as necessary due to it being burned or a high content of worn materials (friction material, metal, etc.) suspended in the ATF oil.

The filter in the pan mounts right at the valve body and also there is a magnet in the pan itself. That is another reason to once a year (or as driving conditions warrant) drop the pan and change the filter and clean the pan magnet.


buy f150 parts.

I I have lost drive & third gear in my 94 cutlass supreme 3.1 I was wondering what should I do


Well, problems with automatics are why there are so many auto transmission shops. There are hardly any shadetree mechanics and not that many ASE-certified mechanics who feel confident enough and knowledgeable enough to tear down and rebuild an automatic. And, very likely, that's what your ****** requires. One question: how long has it been out, and are you familiar with how a transmission starts to "slip" in the gears before it goes entirely? If it just started, you might want to try a fluid and filter change(drop your transmission pan, drain fluid, change filters{its right there after dropping pan}, new pan gasket, and re-install pan). Really about all the average person can do is checking the fluid to make sure it's full in an automatic. Any problems usually require a trip to a shop.

Will not shift out of 1st gear,not slipping


Did your ford Taurus sit for a long time and not get driven? I heard about a problem like this many years ago with an older car.There are two things that you can do, Easy fix first. There is a product made by LUCAS for transmissions that will loosen up any sticking valves in your transmissions valve body. You would have to use this stuff as per directions and give it a chance to work. Drive your car around the neighborhood getting up to temperature and eventually the transmission will shift into second and third gear.
Now for the harder fix, you would have to drop your transmission oil pan and remove the transmission valve body. As you take apart your valve body( MAKE NOTES AS YOU DISASSEMBLE). You will find a stuck piston or two. Make sure they travel freely along with all the other pistons in the valve body. Replace valve body, pan gasket, pan, new fluid,and this will have you running for sure. Please let me know how you made out. GOOD LUCK.

1500 automatic bought from guy says trans was rebuilt shifts ok but when you tromp it sometimes its kicks down goes like hell then tranny slips I backoff and it is fine


I would recommend that you drop the pan and change the fluid and filter, and in place of a quart of transmission fluid, I would run some Lucas transmission oil/fluid that is specifically designed to free up a sticky valve body, and eliminate slipping.

How do you service automatic transmission? change trans. fluid?


remove the transmission oil pan bolts,leave one corner tight untill your ready to lower pan and drain fluid into oil catcher pan,then remove remaining bolts and drop pan,
remove the transmission filter, install new filter,clean inside pan and dry,install new gasket on pan,reinstall pan,put at least 5 quarts in before you start car and shift through gears,return to park,and bring oil to full mark.

AOD trans wont shift when cold


Ok I have no Idea who told you not to change the fluid? However there is a reason you have to drop the pan to drain it, or change filter and the reason for this is. So you cant just change fuild and leave dirty filter in, or change filter and leave dirty oil in. Your wouldnt just change one or another on your motor would you? lol Anywho your problem is either burnt fuild. Yes the fuild can be come burnt and lose it vascoity, and weight. (basicly your runing gravey through it.) lol Or the fuild is termendously dirty strained or not. FYI there are clutches in your transmission.... Have you ever heard of clutch dust? Well in an automatic because of the fuild its not clutch mud..... explaining why when its cold and the oil is super thick it has problems, but when it thins up when its warm its fine.
