Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

5 speed transmission seems to be slipping

Ok im going to give you details because i want to see your input.

its a 2002 cavalier 2.2 and has about 127000 km's on it, about a week or 2 ago i have been noticing that when shifting into first sometimes when releasing the clutch it stutters and slips maybe 1 out of 5 times i am wondering if I have a burnt clutch or pressure plate for the clutch but before i resort to buying a new one would like some of your inputs, is it possible that the transmission needs new fluids, it is also winter here is it possible the release bearing for the clutch is getting worn and needs to be lubed or replaced etc. any input would help thanks

You can test your clutch, by putting on the parking brake, start car, put vehicle in 5th and release the clutch slowly. If the car stalls, it is likely ok. if it does not stall then your clutch is worn and requires replacement. It sounds like you have maybe an oil leak possibly from the front seal of the transmission, which is leaking onto the clutch plate. this will also require replacement of the clutch and the front seal. also while it is out check the flywheel is not damaged. This could have a dual mass flywheel which are also prone to failure giving clutch problems.

Where is the input turbo speed sensor located for my 2004 Chevy Cavalier? Is inside the transmission?


The input would be on the front wheels .The out put is on the output of the transmission .So the input from the wheels turning is sent to the pcm and compared with the out put of the transmission out put shaft that puts the drive force to the road .
It could be reversed from front to rear but the concept is the same the computer senses the free wheel spin rate and then adjusts controls like fuel trim and timing air intake and so on compared to the speed of the transmission shaft
Hope this helps

How can i fix this problem im having with my crown victoria 2005 my OD Overdrive blinking


The OD light is blinking because the transmission control module has detected a fault in the transmission operation, most common is slipping as measured by the input and output turbine shaft speed sensors. You may feel no slipping but the sensors are detecting it or one of the sensors is giving a fault signal.

P0715 changed both speed sensors 2002 hyundai elantra still have same code come up


I suspect that your transmission is slipping, you may not feel it yet but the sensors are picking it up in the relative speed signals from the input and output sensor.

2002 Chevy silverado, at speeds of 60+ mph, it feels like the transmission slips or it sputters(hesitates), but only at high speeds


Are you certain that it is the transmission and not the engine misfiring? I would recommend scanning your onboard computer network to BEGIN proper diagnosis.

Ok im like the 3000 preson ive seen here with overdrive problems~? it wont go into overdrive,ive read everything from change the over drive sennsor(in the trany?) to replace the ecu~! any an all help to...


Shoot the transmission or better yet get a wire and command the overdrive itself to come on. But before you can do this look at the transmission fluid is it burnt or very very dark?And when you check transmission fluid level(car running) is it foaming or you see little bubbles.If you do shoot the transmission. Okay now check throttle cable or TV the one on the throttle body youll have 2 of them with is at wide open throttle take hold of the transmission downshift part does it have 1/4 freeplay it should cause that can affect the downshift.which in turns affects the overdrive. Now lets get to the dirty part in order for this transmission to have over drive. 2 solenoids signal must be in the off postion when the vehicle is in fourth gear . Your not slipping right? Now there is a sensor called O/d direct speed sensor(NC2) it detects rotaion speed of the clutch drum. all this does is detect shift timing by comparing NC@ sensor signal to the VSS vehicle speed sensor. this is the one on top of the transmission its called an input sensor or turbine. Now is the overdrive working yes it is does it feel like it works nope.when you turn on the overdrive and the O/D light is on its only transmission shift quality you only have 4 gears your transmission is a A541E 4 -SPD. Its working fine stop thowing part into it and dont shoot it.

On a 2002 cavalier the transmission has no dip stick and it is slipping


Replace the dipstick for your transmission. Top it off with fluid, and re assess the performance of your transmission.

Your transmission will not function properly without a certain build up of pressure. Not having the dipstick in the check line will not allow this pressure to build.

The automatic gearbox on my mondeo 2002 changes gears but slips


In the engine compartment, you will need to locate the transmission dipstick. Usually on the left side of the motor, labeled "Trans fluid". Pull it out and check the fluid level. Your problem could be as simple as putting transmission fluid in it. That will make it slip. You fill the transmission right down the dipstick tube.
