Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora

2 Answers

I've got a '95 aurora that won't shift to 2nd or 3rd gear. I took shift assembly apart and checked shift solenoids and they tested fine. I dont have easy acces to a diagnostic computer. It was parked for a long time and I've noticed the parking brake is stuck on and I dont know if theres a saftey switch there to keep it from shifting or not. Any suggestions? well my 95 aurora is doing the same thing, it doesn't want to change gears! It's like somethings not telling the computer to switch gears. I'm afraid to burn out the Tranny. HELP Arturo

I had this problem and dealer said I needed a new tranny. Took it for second opinion at local trans shop and they replaced the shift switch in the tranny for $250.

Transmission wont shift out of second gear


There is a shift solenoid for 2nd gear that has been known to cause these kinds of problems. Apparently it cracks or breaks but is replaceable. It is also possible that your car is in "limp mode". This will automatically select 2nd gear to use. Get your car checked for codes. This will let you know for sure. Hope this helps.

I have a 96 aurora and every time i drive it wont shift in to 3rd gear


It just won't shift to 3rd or shifts into neutral after 2nd? The 4t80E transmission is known for breaking the bracket that holds the shift solenoids.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.

Slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear


Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.

Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.


I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.

I got everything put back together and decided to start at the beggining. In doing this I found all that was wrong was a bad fuse and it hasn't blown again since so I think I got the problem solved ( at least I got my tranny fluid changed)
