A/T is not shifting right. Stays in low gear too long, stays in 2nd too long, doesn't shift into top gear until I completely remove my foot from the throttle to coast. Started doing this suddenly. Gears...


checked fluid level? sounds slippy so check that.. and check that your shifter is all secure and nothings broken dude... probably low on fluids.

Popular Problems Checks
1. Car will not go into gear:
  • Gear selector cable has failed
  • Brake lock solenoid/brake light swtich has failed not allowing the gear selector to move out of "Park"

  • Flex plate (flywheel) is broken completely not transferring engine power to the transmission.

Transmission seems like it is hung in low gear and doesnt shift but at times it will shift like there is nothing wrong


try checking the transmission fluid level , low fluid levels prevent shifting , when driving different levels caused by going uphill or down, even low grades can leave the pickup pump sucking air. that would lead to perfect shifts one minute and not shifting the next.

Hesitation going uphills doesnt seem to want to shift from 2nd into 3rd gear


I assume you have check the fluid level to ensure there is enough fluid... If not, do that first. Problems with the transmission not shifting is generally related to fluid pressure not getting where it needs to go when it needs to go there. That could mean low fluid or a bad solenoid in the transmission responsible for controling that gear. If you checked the fluid and it's still not operating correctly, that's beyond our help. Take it to a transmission shop. Good luck.

My 2002 Mercury Sable will not shift into gear, will shift out of park, but will not go into any gear.


How many miles and how does your transmission fluid look?

Get car ot normal oper. temps and put on level ground. Put trans thru all gears with foot on brake. Put into park, leave running and check level. If level is low, this could be part or all of your problem. If level is fine and trans fluid is not brown or burnt, you have an electronic problem.

If fluid checks ok, let me know if you have a Check engine light on, ABS light, etc.

Hope that helps.

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears


The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.
