Can you go from auto. To manul whil driving


The short answer is No. The technologies is exclusive of each other. In this a Manual transmission is only capable of being a Manual transmission and an Automatic is the same.

It should be noted that there are hybrid technologies called Semi-automatic transmissions that remove the need to press a clutch when shifting; however, the technology does not provide for a change into a pure Manual or Automatic mode.

My A160 Benz semi auto having problem with trnsmission can not engage forword or reverse.


when a transmission is in drive it will always try to drive. even with the foot on the brake it is still trying to drive.
Run the fault codes for the transmission as I suspect there will be a problem in the torque converter clutch/ servo/solenoid .

My 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee just whined loudly while driving, and while in gear, doesn't shift/drive, any ideas what it might be?


IMHO, Jeep/Chrysler hasn't had a great rep for the transmissions within the past 20 years. In most instances, transmissions should last the entire lifetime of the vehicle when cared for properly. Checking fluid levels regularly, as well as following manufacturer service intervals make the difference. Keep in mind that transmission fluid should be changed just like your oil, but on a very different schedule.The Grand Cherokee being a model plagued with transmission problems especially if you have the four-wheel drive "Quadratrac" transfer-case package. I am not sure sure if this is a "maintenance free" (I hate that term) or "sealed for life transmission" and case. If it is, I feel very sorry for you because like many others, you have been mislead. Transmission fluid does in fact have a service life and the fluid certainly takes a beating. Not only does it lubricate your transmission as oil does for an engine, it acts as a coolant, and it is also a hydraulic fluid to assist automatic shifting in the case of automatic transmissions. Transmission fluid should be changed because old fluid loses viscosity and can become "dirty" due to natural surface oxidation of internal parts. Unfortunately, usually by the time a transmission starts "acting up" or starts making noise the damage is already done. If you have an automatic, the whole transmission will have to be redone or replaced. If it is a manual trans its possible certain components can be replaced. I have had a girlfriend and co-worker who both had these Jeeps with automatic and wound up ditching them because of tranny or xfer-case issues. One jeep started having trans problems at 70,000 miles. :-(

Unable to start car, maybe due to demobiliser???


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

WHEN IM DRIVING, IT POPS OR JERKS ALL OF A SUDDEN AND THEN WONT SHIFT GEARS. WHEN IM ON THE EXPRESSWAY AND IT DOES THIS, IT WILL BARELY GO 55 MPH.


Your transmission fluid is dangerously low (tranny is dry). The pops & jerks are the transmission
internal components trying not to seize onto each other due to lack of lubrication and/or overheating.
Low transmission fluid leads not only to loss of lubrication but lots of overheating (of the tranny).
The loss of Elantra performance (speed tops out at 55), is caused by power loss due to friction inside the transmission. All your power is lost overheating the transmission (toward destruction), instead of
being transmitted through the transmission to the wheels.

The 2004 Elantra takes Hyundai SP-III Automatic Transmission Fluid, with 8.4 quarts used in a
total refill - but just 5 quarts at a fluid change. For How-to transmission fluid change instructions:

http://en.allexperts.com/q/Hyundai-Repair-815/2004-Elantra-GT-transmission.htm

www.autozone.com claims that 2004 Hyundai Elantra can take these non-Hyundai ATF's:
Lucas Semi-Synthetic Multivehicle ATF
Pennzoil Muilt Vehicle ATF
Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF
Castrol High Mileage ATF

If this has an automatic transmission check the fluid to see if it is low of burnt. Fill if necessary. If not unfortunately you need to take to a transmission shop so it has a warranty when repaired.

Check transmission fluid, our cars are pretty low and unfortunately automatics transmission sit pretty low so its possible you have a leak below or are just running low on transmission fluid.
