Adjust switch gear selector

5speed A/T
this car warns you of tranny errros, 2 ways.
flashing D selector (some years)
1996 and newer, most...switch to this way.
and with a scan tool shows DTC errors. P07xx (vast numbers)
and can show tranny failures. but scanning is best.
some countries mask tranny errors.. not USA. (loc, not stated)
in your car the PCM shifts the tranny , not you.
the PCM can in fact go to limphome for the tranny.
and can skip gears.
if a tranny input sensor is faulting the PCM (OBD2) scan will find this error,
so scan it.
be advised, most Autozoned, stores can NOT scan for the HONDA DTCs custom to HONDA. P1 or P2 codes.
they can do P0xxx codes, mostly and are blind. mostly.
use a real tool to scan it.

Pops out of 5th gear

no GL4 lube in tranny.
the magic $3 plastic tip on shifter is worn to dust.

replace part 27 (25551xxxx)
when this fails it hard to hits gears, and also alows the shifter to bounce wildly till it bumps out of gear.
if not that, its serious. (bearings and or synchro rings, dogs)

Transmission problems ... It down shifts too hard

Check fluid level worse case gears aren't sincrenizing properly tranny shop can tell u that when they check fluid level but sounds like tranny going out or your clutch if has one I'd say clutch first before tranny gears if manual tranny if auto then fluid or tranny needs serviced

Cant find tranny fluid fill up on 94 kia sephia manual

To fill a 94 Kia sephia 5speed tranny you need to take the spedo gear out the big black plastic part sticking out of the top of the tranny close to the firerwall by the bell housing unscrews after you unplug it then you'll need a 10 mm socket and ratchet there's a rubber o ring that will give you a little resistance then you get a funnel and 80w-90 gear oil and your set.

Roaring noise in front of 2003 olds alero gets louder as I accelerate, sounds like manual transmission needing to be shifted to next gear(this isn't a manual transmission

Have a shop look at it. It may just be a failed wheel bearing. The bearing will leave you stranded if it gets bad enough and cause more damage.

2001 Olds Alero will act **** when switching gears

My car does the same thing. I wondered that myself, I don't think that's what it is though, I don't think you have an issue with the transmission. Your car has TWO check engine lights, and with the Alero--if there is an issue with the transmission one of the lights will come on. I am not 100% positive of this, but I had a 1999 Bravada (Olds) and it did do that when I had a tranny issue.

I notice when I drive my 2001 Alero my right leg gets SORE from pushing the pedal so hard. I think it is age, not the transmission.

READ YOUR SERVICE MANUALS. I don't get why people ignore them, honestly they have a wealth of information in them...could have saved a lot of people lots of money when people started claiming their car wouldn't start when it was a security feature that is listed in the manual that came with the book.
