If this is an automatic they are known for having many issues. It will require an inspection to diagnose the cause. If its a manual you probably need to change the fluid either way an inspection by a transmission shop should be done

What can be the solution for my pajero gdi 3500 model 2000 does not engage the gear early morning?


Transmission fluid is on te base of the engine all settle up. Once the oil runs all over the transmission will work easily. I would make check and refill the oil on the transmission.
Until then, start ur engine and let it warm and pump for a minute until all the oil is washing all over and then go.

-sorry for my English but i hope that helps.

Transmission is sliping when warmed up, in all gears. Goes into all gears fine when cold.


Check transmission fluid level Hot in D. Over full will cause frothing and loss of pressure in the system. Have a transmission pressure test done . It may need a band and clutch pack adjustment.

one thing ive warned my friends to never do and that is to never have your trans flushed cause you may have new fluids but what about the trans filter its old and iots there for that reason to keep dirt and metal; shavings from the bands so try having your oil and filter in the transmission replaced , pull your trans dip stick and on a white piece of paper put a drop of trans oil that you have in your trans at that very moment it should be redish pink but if its brown and smells really bad then the problem is in the oil and filter . change it before u have to replace the whole trans

Gear does not engage first thing on mornings, engine revs and then jumps into gear. Car has to warm up for approx 5 min or more for gear to engage normally..


You have a possible failing transmission, if u have a Aamco Transmission repair shop near by have them road test it, they *** it fro free

'98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only


When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

2001 ford taurus TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


most likely due to a stripped out torque converter or a broken pump shaft. trans. has to come out to repair either or. you should make sure the fluid is full first. with the car running and warm, check fluid- if it seems over full, the pump shaft is broken, if it's just full- probably the torque conv., if its low add trans. fluid (mercon 5) 1 qt. at a time until in crosshatched area on the dipstick. hope this helps and good luck
