I have a 99 chevy tahoe 4X4 thats giving me problem.when pushing down on brake pedal it pushes back then the ABS light comes on and then the truck starts revving up and not shifting gears right and se


This could be a wheel speed sensor. The ABS module does not do a rationality test to sensors. This must be monitored by a scanner WHEN acting up as they send information to the controller which makes the decision if the car has traction or not one of the sensors is sending false data. this happens at low speeds 15 mph or less . the controller does not tag it as a bad reading because it is random even during your brake application. As for the transmission not shifting this also can be a bad sensor on the transfer case output shaft. Does speedo act crazy during this shifting problem. check for loose ground straps.

Kia Spectra 2nd to 3rd gear having shifting problem


Could be the transmission shift solenoids.
I've replaced dozens and so far, that was the problem every time.

Takes time shifting, and won't shift into high gear unless you gas on it.


May check fluid level and if low would more than likely indicate a leak. could also be a sensor that controls the shifting. does check engine light come on and if so,this could indicate a bad sensor.

I have a 2006 Kia sorento had an oil change a couple days ago but now the car is revving highly and has problems shifting in 3rd gear and pass what could be wrong


Its reving high,like pressing on the fuel,and the RPM just shoots high,you are describing a sliupping transmission. Kia has problems with shift hesistation dealing with the TPS, get that troubleshooted first if its not the TPS you are dealing with a VSS(vehicle speed sensor ) if both component are not at fault the solution is another transmission or rebuilt

I'm buying a 2000 kia sephia l4 1.8l that wont shift(manual tranny) to 3-5th gear. owner says it has a low fluid sensor that wont let it shift when fluids low. is this true or what would you say the...


Hi,
The fluid has nothing to do w/ the shifting! The problem is internal and needed to replace those synchronizing gear! Better look for a used up tranny to install it in ur car!
thanks for using fixya!

The low range light has come on its stuck on 4x4 and is slowing my truck down how do i fix this


you cannot run your truck normally in 4x4 low!!!! the low is designed to go slow slow.try shifting into neutral gear on column tap the high 4x4 then shift to reverse,back up 15feet then shift to drive.it should go into high 4x4 then if you want to go back to 2wheel high shift to neutral tap the 4x4 high until the light goes off,shift to reverse and back up 15feet then shift to drive and the 4wheel drive lights should all be off. then you'll be in 2x2 rear wheel drive. thank you for choosing fixya.com

99 dodge dakota wont shift from first gear but also fuel light is on i bought from auction and put 5 gal of gas and needle moved a lil would this make the truck not shift?


No the fact that your vehicle is low on gas should have nothing to do with the shifting of the transmission. You are dealing with two separate issues.

The transmission wont always shift into high gear, and also lurches when shifting down into a lower gear.


It could be one of three things that is causing this issue, first the transmission filter for the fluid could be clogged, there may be a faulty speed sensor or there could be a shift solenoid sticking. it is difficult to change a speed sensor but you should be able to do the other two parts and procedures with the help of a repair manual
