SOURCE: Not catching 2nd gear

Check the level and condition of your tranny fluid.
Check the level with the car running, in park.
The fluid should be a pink or bright red color.

SOURCE: what are the symptoms of a speed sensor going bad on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl.

Since alot of things rely on data from the speed sensor you will "usually" get an ABS alarm, little or no shifting,no indication of speed on the speedometer, and the check engine light. without the abs light and with a speed indicated I would lean toward a transmission problem

97 town car not shifting from 1st to 2nd gear


Check the Coolant (antifreeze) level. My 94 continental has a hard time shifting from 2nd to 3rd when the level is low. Also, this may indicate that the transmission fluid is too old to work properly. The transmission fluid is cooled at the bottom of the radiator, since cool fluid works better than hot fluid (especially when the trans fluid is old) that could make the transmission not shift properly. Keep the coolant level up until you can have the trans fluid checked.

Transmission miss shift


Low fluid level, clogged transmission filter, crimpped line to oil cooler. If over 60k miles and transmission never serviced then a good place to start.

My fz transmission in my 1988 ford f450 made a popping sound and lockd up killing the engine...what caused this to happen..


On your type of transmission the top where the gear shifter sit at is where the solution is at.you will have to pull the rug back take out the gear selector housing once its out, the reverse relector is held by a 3/4 to 11/16 reverse nut it came loose, that relator has interfered with the gears when this happens it basically just goes in reverse

I have a 84 V65 Magna. When I get on the throttle in 1st & 2nd gear, it clunks (like it's skipping). It only happens only in 1st & 2nd gear. What's the problem?


I use to have the same exact bike. Mine did the same thing. My problem was in the transmission. In mime it was the teeth of my first and second gear were damaged. The bike was too old to invest the money to fix it.The person who owned it before me had miss shifted alot.I did it once and that put the icing on the cake.

I notice that sometimes my 98 chrysler town an country jumps from 1st gear to 2nd gear to soon. Does that mean that my transmission is starting to go out?


If it is only happening sometimes, you should get your transmission serviced ASAP. If you do this you should be able to save the transmission.

Automatic Transmission shifting problems.


i had the same thing...It's the transmission. It's REALLY noticeable shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was able to get my transmission fixed for 900 bux. That wasn't even a replacement so i can imagine how much it would cost to get it replaced. The shifting will get worse. By the end of my "experience" it wouldn't shift from 1st to 2nd for about 5 minutes until i drove it around for a bit. THen it would "warm up" to the idea of shifting to 2nd gear.

Manual transmission will not shift into any gear, even when the clutch is completely depressed. It's a hard shift to begin with and now when i have to come to a stop and say move it out of 4th gear and try...


The problem sounds like the clutch. If you put it in 1st., then start it up, does it try to move with you foot on the clutch? Does the clutch pedal feel different than normal.
