Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

97 5 speed manual sunfire gear issue

It felt like my car slipped outta 2nd gear then I had no gears. Yet it is stuck in a gear because I started my car up and had to keep my foot on the clutch. My car will drive in that gear but I can not shift to any other gear. Is it a linkage problem or is it possible that something is frozen or stuck in it...its -30 celsius out!

    I own a 5 speed civic and I put it in first, the shifter felt loose. Now the car is stuck in 1st gear, but I can pull the shifter back and forth but it won't move laterally. I'm thinking something is wrong shift linkage, but I am just not sure.

For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

I own a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4WD automatic 4.0. I have been having issues with the transmission. It seems the gears are slipping at times. Last week after about 200 miles on a trip, I was...


no.
but slips , is big deal.
check fuses
check levels
full flush it.
scan it yet, no, but if the TCM is in limphome mode
it will not shift right, so why do you skip scanning it.
what it the TCM tells you a speed sensors is borked.
why work blind.?scan it.first.
does it slip in 1st gear?

at 70mph that is called transmission flare, never a good sign that.

Please,can you help me fix cods problems p0732,p0734 on my 2006 Mazda Tribute


P0732 - Improper Ratio for Second Gear.
P0734 - Improper Ratio for Fourth Gear.

This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by TCM as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor B: Engine speed signal from ECM C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd and 4th) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

This malfunction will be caused when shift solenoid valve B is stuck open.

Gear positions supposed by TCM are as follows. In case of gear position with no malfunctions: 1 , 2, 3 and 4 positions In case of gear position with shift solenoid valve B stuck open: 4* , 3, 3 and 4 positions to each gear position above.

Symptoms: Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Diagnostic trouble code A/T 2ND GR FNCTN with CONSULT-II or P0732 without CONSULT-II is detected when A/T cannot be shifted to the 2nd gear position even if electrical circuit is good.

Possible Causes:
- Shift solenoid valve B
- Each clutch
- Hydraulic control circuit

Hi , My audi a4 97 std auto box is slipping in D


Rory
Its your body valve in the gear box which is not letting the pump on forward gears pump enough oil to the forward band and because the band isent tight it is slipping..
Now it could be the oil in box and if you take off the auto pan and clean out the filter on the pick up and refill with DEXTRON II TRANS FLUID then you should be ok as long as it hasent slipped to much .
Let me know how you get on . RON
