Automatic transmission slips into neutral in drive position

I changed the fluid and now if I drive slow it will go into high gear, but it stills slips into neutral instead of high gear

First of all make sure you are checking the fluid right. Some people do not know that in order to check transmission fluid the engine needs to be running and the temperature needs to be sort of warm althought you should be able to get a good Idea just by the engine running. In this instance you might have a governer valve that isn't properly working to shift the engine when hydraulic pressure reaches a certain PSI. I would suggest having it flushed and put in new fluid and filter. If this doesn't work the problem is more serious and might need some professional assistance.

SOURCE: Clutch slip (automatic transmission)

Remove the transmission pan. Check fluid for burnt smell, water contamination, (on 2pc fill tubes water can get in) debris (either clutch material or metal) Change filter and refill. If problem gets substantially better, change oil again in about a week. If problem remains the same and there was a lot of debris or oil really smelled bad, you likely have burned clutches and need a rebuild. Compare smell and colour with another vehicle... trans oil never smells really "good".

you might try the filter first as that is the cheapest fix but also could be th moudule

SOURCE: 4x4 slips shiftin gears starting and stopping

you might already know but when shifting into 4wd you can shift into 4hi while driving as long as the tires,(all four) are travelling the same speed. you can't shift into 4wd if you are spinning. 4 low you have to completely stop. When you are in 4 low as you know the power of vehicle is greatly increased due to gear reduction. so if you are seeing slipping symptoms, you might want to change transmission filter. It might not be much help to you but it might prevent problems down the road. also when changing fluid be sure to put mopar transmission fluid for replacement on jeep. like gm calls for dexron. the transfer case on dodge and jeeps also takes transmission fluid. I had to replace a t-case on my friends dakota that was making a grinding noise and it turns out a seal had leaked some fluid out and burnt up some bearings. pretty expensive. they are chain driven. hope I didnt get too carried away, because I am not a transmission expert but I just wanted to share what I did know with you.

SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission or transfer case

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.

Trans is slipping when just in drive 1 an 2 works fine what could it be


could be you need transmission fluid or belts need tightening in transmission ( presume its automatic ) or maybe the stick holding it in gear is worn and going back to neutral...probably needs service they change fluid for more viscosity....

Merc clk 1999 fault


on most cars, you need to change the neutral safety switch. this car has a neutral parking position sensor, you can find it for v6 not v8, it also fits a saab 9-3. it is the same thing, a different style. however, check the transmission fluid level and troublecodes for p07xxs. reset the code and use the transmission dipstick by dorman add lucas auto trans fluid, not stop slip to the fill line. most of the time it's not the solenoid, but the auto trans plate, overfilling the fluid can cause it to trigger a check engine light, and the fluid leaking onto it can cause it to be permanently damaged, it's more than $400 for the part. lucas works in the 722.xx transmissions, most , all, clks 99-2002, just make sure the tranny model isn't a 238. i like it better than atf 134. However, these parts are very heat sensitive. fill the trans fluid, reset the troublecodes, do a general motos drive cycle from obdii.com if it doesn't drive good after four times, change the neutral safety switch. :)

IHAVE AUTOMATIC 4 WHEEL DRIVE 6CILINDER .I CHANGED THE SPEED SENSER IN HOPES OF SOLVING PROBLEM THE MOTOR REVS UP WHEN DRIVING ACTS LIKE IT IS IN NUTRAL


It may actually BE in neutral. AUtomatc transmissions that are low on fluid often have trouble staying in gear and will slip back into neutral at times due to lack of fluid needed to engage the hydraulics required to go into the desired gear. Checking and topping up fluid may solve your problem.

HOWEVER, if it is low, they where did the fluid go (it doesnt evaporate!)???

If it isnt low and its going into neutral improperly when the stick is in drive.,..you likely have some serious engine control or transmission system problems needing immediate service. code pulls may help, but aside from a few remote issues, if its not low fluid, you really need to seek expert advice on transmission issues

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.

What does it mean when an automatic transmission slips gears?


hello. Here are some of the transmission slipping signs you should be looking for:
  • A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission.
  • If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox.
  • If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.
  • Another one of the transmission slipping signs is oil or automatic transmission fluid (ATF) leakage. This could damage the transmission.
  • If your car has suddenly started sounding noisy, then it could also be because of a problem in the gearbox.
  • Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine. You will need a code reader to diagnose the problem by reading the code.

Change the fluid. Since you only get about half of the fluid to drain during a change (the rest is held in the torque converter with no way to drain it), you will have to change the fluid three times in order to dilute the "dirty" fluid with enough clean fluid to make the end product mostly clean. Change the fluid, then run the car for awhile. Repeat two more times. And only use Honda fluid.
